Looking ahead at 2023, all-around engagement, dialogue and cooperation are a sure path for China-Europe relations.
The more turbulent the international situation becomes and the more prominent the global challenges become, the greater the global significance of China-EU relations will be, Xi said.
This will be the first official meeting between the leaders of China and the EU since the conclusion of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China last month.
Premier Li Keqiang has called on China and the European Union to carry out cooperation and learn from each other on the basis of mutual respect and equal treatment, which conforms to the fundamental and long-term interests of both sides.
Wang said that China-EU cooperation has seen important achievements in recent years. At the same time, there are some differences between China and the EU that affect the sound development of relations from time to time.
