China and New Zealand signed an agreement on Monday on building a joint center for medical research in New Zealand's biggest city Auckland.

The Joint Center for Biomedicine will focus on leading-edge medical science to seek new treatments for diseases such as cancer.

It is collaboration between the University of Auckland-hosted Maurice Wilkins Center for Molecular Biodiscovery and the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health.

Professor Stuart McCutcheon,vice chancellor of University of Auckland, said that the new agreement in medical research marks a new stage in an exciting and forward-looking partnership that not only underlines the strong relationship between China and New Zealand in medical research but will generate significant medical and economic benefits for both countries.
