China expects the China-Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) Summit to bring new vitality to cooperation between China and CEEC and the China-EU comprehensive strategic partnership, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Tuesday during a regular press briefing.
China-CEEC cooperation is a trans-regional cooperation platform jointly created by two sides based on common aspirations, needs, and development, which has created opportunities for mutual development for China and CEEC, FM spokesperson Wang Wenbin said.
The cooperation mechanism between China and CEEC has improved and yielded substantial results over the past nine years, said Wang.
The summit, chaired by Chinese President Xi Jinping, is the highest-level summit since the establishment of the cooperation mechanism. All parties will explore new ideas and bring forward new initiatives based on reviewing the experience during the past nine years, Wang said.
Wang said that the summit will contribute to anti-epidemic cooperation and post-epidemic economic recovery, and will map out the future direction of cooperation and draw a blueprint for further development.
