On 3 May 2018, Ambassador Zhang Ming met with Commissioner Phil Hogan for Agriculture and Rural Development upon request. The two sides conducted exchanges on Commissioner Hogan’s upcoming visit to China and the China-EU agricultural cooperation.

Ambassador Zhang welcomed Commissioner Hogan’s visit and wished him a successful trip. Ambassador Zhang said that, as an important aspect of the China-EU comprehensive strategic partnership, agricultural cooperation is essential to the growth of China-EU relations. With concerted efforts, cooperation in this area has been going smoothly. It is hoped that the agricultural cooperation could be further expanded and achieve new progress.

Commissioner Hogan said that the EU and China have extensive common interests and good cooperation in the area of agriculture and rural development. The EU is ready to step up cooperation with China in the areas of research and innovation, agricultural management, professionals training and agri-food trade, in order to give more substance to the EU-China cooperation.
