"Both sides are committed to pushing forward reforms in the international financial institutions and urge other countries to fulfil their commitment of implementing the 2010 IMF Quota and Governance Reform expeditiously and to complete the next general quota review by January 2014," said a joint statement issued here after the 6th China-India Financial Dialogue in Beijing.
Aimed at improving the voting share of developing countries and achieving a better representation on the IMF Board, the reform of the international financial institutions has been a key part of the agenda of the G-20 group of nations.
"Both countries agreed to intensify cooperation with other BRICS member countries towards tangible results on the initiatives on BRICS Development Bank and Contingency Reserve Arrangement in the next BRICS summit," the statement added.
The BRICS group of emerging markets is made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
India and China also called upon the multilateral lending agencies to increase their exposure to developing countries with a view to expanding global aggregate demand.
The two countries expressed their willingness to strengthen cooperation at various levels on macro-economic policies and major international economic and financial issues.
"Both sides agreed to strengthen regular communication and coordination at various levels on macro-economic policies and major international economic and financial issues," the statement said.
Observing that India's economic fundamentals continue to be strong and the country remains committed to strengthening and deepening the reforms process, the statement said: "The two sides agreed to actively explore opportunities for cooperation in the process of their respective structural reforms."
Both countries also called for early implementation of the policy measures adopted by G-20 to boost growth and employment "for promoting strong, sustainable and balanced growth of the world economy".
After signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 'Launching the Financial Dialogue between China and India' in April 2005, both the countries have earlier held five rounds of dialogues.
It was also agreed to hold the 7th India-China Financial Dialogue in 2014 in New Delhi.
