Ambassador Zhang Ming Meets Commissioner Elisa Ferreira

On 5 March 2020, Ambassador Zhang Ming, Head of the Chinese Mission to the EU, met with Ms. Elisa Ferreira, EU Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms.

Ambassador Zhang briefed on the latest developments on the COVID-19 outbreak and the positive results brought by China’s response efforts. He noted that the Chinese government puts people’s life and health front and center and closely follows the outbreak in Europe with sympathy. China will continue to work closely with the EU and the rest of the international community in an open, transparent and responsible way to prevail over the epidemic at an early date.

Commissioner Ferreira said that virus respects no frontiers and poses a challenge to the whole mankind. The EU is interested to strengthen exchanges with China and work with China in pharmaceutical development, medical treatment and other aspects. The EU commends and supports China’s response efforts and believes that cooperation and solidarity will surely lead to an early victory over the outbreak.

The two sides also exchanged views about the China-EU relations and pragmatic cooperation.
