Ambassador Zhang Ming Meets Executive Vice-President of Valdis Dombrovskis

On 13 February 2019, Ambassador Zhang Ming, Head of the Chinese Mission to the EU, met with Mr. Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission. They had an in-depth exchange of views about China-EU economic and trade relations, in addition to other topics.

Ambassador Zhang congratulated EVP Dombrovskis on his new position, and noted that the increasingly close economic and trade cooperation between China and the EU contributes to the deepening of the China-EU comprehensive strategic partnership. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the EU. China stands ready to step up cooperation with the EU to ensure the success of the important exchanges ahead, strengthen dialogue as agreed on by leaders of both sides, and bring the development of China-EU economic and trade relations to a new level of higher quality.

EVP Dombrovskis emphasized that the EU attaches great importance to cooperation with China and is willing to strengthen communication with China, deliver on the consensus reached by leaders of both sides, and strive for positive results of important activities and collaborations between the two sides this year.

Ambassador Zhang briefed on China’s response to COVID-19. EVP Dombrovskis offered his condolences and support to the Chinese government and people.
