On 14 September, Ambassador Zhang Ming met with Mr. Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. They exchanged views on the latter’s attendance at the Summer Davos Forum, China-EU relations, and cooperation in the field of science, technology and innovation.

Ambassador Zhang welcomed Commissioner Moedas to attend the Summer Davos Forum in China again since three years ago. Ambassador Zhang said that recent months have seen the success and fruitful outcomes of the eighth China-EU High-level Strategic Dialogue, the seventh China-EU High-level Economic and Trade Dialogue, and the 20th China-EU Summit. It is important to follow up on the exchanges and bring China-EU relations to the new level.

Ambassador Zhang said that China’s innovation policy is comprehensive, systemic and open, and that Commissioner Moedas’ visit to China would contribute positively to China-EU relations, especially to China-EU cooperation in science and innovation.

Commissioner Moedas recalled his impressive visit to the Zhongguancun Innovation Street three years ago, and spoke highly of the great innovative spirit of China. Commissioner Moedas said that the China-EU co-funding mechanism is doing well. The EU is now working intensively on the Horizon Europe program, and hopes to further deepen cooperation with China on the basis on mutual benefit.
