Chavez said relations had grown broader and closer since his China visit last time.
He said his government would work with China to enhance and strengthen the strategic partnership.
Before the ceremony, Zeng and Chavez exchanged views on strengthening economic and technical cooperation. Enterprises from both countries signed cooperative agreements in fields such as energy, mining, agriculture and telecommunications.
