 Xi Jinping meets with European Council president Michel and European Commission Chairman Leyen

Xi Jinping stressed that the world under the impact of the epidemic is undergoing profound changes and faces more uncertainties and uncertainties. I have proposed that we should strive to develop new opportunities in the crisis and start new situations in the changing situation. This also applies to China EU relations. As two major forces, markets and civilizations in the world, China and the EU have world significance in what they stand for, oppose and cooperate with each other.

China and the EU need to be two major forces to maintain global peace and stability. China is willing to exchange views with Europe on major issues, and believes that the EU will continue to move forward in the direction of unity, stability, openness and prosperity. China is willing to see Europe make constructive contributions to international peace and stability, and is willing to strengthen strategic cooperation with Europe to jointly address global challenges.

China and the EU should be two major markets to promote global development and prosperity. The two major economies of China and the EU should play the role of two engines of the world economy, stimulate the recovery of the world economy, jointly support the scientific and orderly resumption of production, strengthen the coordination of macroeconomic policies, and maintain the stability and smoothness of the global industrial chain supply chain. The two sides should maintain mutual market opening, accelerate the negotiation of China EU investment agreement, strengthen cooperation in green and digital fields between China and the EU, and build green development partners. Both sides should strengthen trilateral cooperation with Africa.

Xi Jinping stressed that I would like to maintain close communication with the two presidents and push forward a series of important political agenda in China and Europe and push China EU relations to a new stage.

Michelle and von der lain said that as the worlds two major economies, EU China relations are full of vitality. At present, the world is facing great uncertainty. Only international cooperation can meet global challenges, only dialogue and consultation can solve conflicts and eliminate regional instability. Europe is willing to conduct strategic dialogue and expand consensus with China in a frank manner. The European side is willing to strengthen cooperation with China on vaccine research and development, return to work and production, expand bilateral trade scale, promote cooperation in a wide range of fields such as green, low-carbon and digital economy, and reach an EU China investment agreement as soon as possible, so as to make efforts to overcome the impact of the epidemic as soon as possible and promote the recovery of the world economy. Europe adheres to multilateralism and is willing to strengthen coordination and cooperation with China on major issues such as public health and safety, climate change, sustainable development and trilateral cooperation with Africa within the framework of the United Nations, the World Trade Organization and the G20. The European side is willing to work with China to promote the success of the major political agenda agreed upon between Europe and China.
