China and the EU facing global challenges together
The past 20 years have seen the continued growth of China-EU relations. As comprehensive strategic partners, China and the EU are jointly advancing partnerships for peace, growth, reform and civilization.
In face of the increasingly grave global challenges, China and the EU are both staunch supporters of multilateralism and contributors to an open world economy. The two sides jointly lead the global response to climate change, create opportunities for greater connectivity, and maintain and promote world peace, stability and prosperity. There is a joint responsibility to make even greater contribution to the progress of mankind.
China will as always firmly support European integration, a united and strong EU, and a more important role of the EU in international affairs.
Looking ahead, China will as always firmly support European integration, a united and strong EU, and a more important role of the EU in international affairs. I look forward to working together with the new EU institutions in a spirit of mutual respect and win-win results, to further advance China-EU cooperation in various fields and deliver greater benefits to peoples of both sides.
