The diplomats also discussed enhancing collaboration on industrial development, as well as education, housing and cultural matters, the Venezuelan foreign ministry said.
Wang was due to meet later with President Nicolas Maduro.
The top Chinese diplomat arrived in Caracas from his first stop in the region, Cuba.
China is Cuba's number two economic partner after Venezuela and is a critical source of financing for the Americas' only Communist-run nation, which is cash-strapped and cannot get financing from most lenders.
After his Venezuelan visit, Wang was to head to Argentina and Brazil, the latter being South America's industrial, farm and financial giant.
