Promoting peace, prosperity and progress for China and Europe

作者:Yang Yanyi  时间:2015-07-15

  It is with great pleasure that I present to you the Report of the 4th Europe-China Forum—Shaping a Shared Future.

  Though the views contained in the Report are those of the rapporteur’s and not necessarily those of the organization that participants represent, nor of Friends of Europe, its Board of Trustees, members or partners, they nonetheless have captured pertinent observations and enlightening thoughts on shaping a shared future for China-EU relations from ongoing debates and deliberations.

  There is growing recognition of the importance of the comprehensive reform and opening up of China and its relevance to the EU. Observations have been made that China’s new normal and its shifting towards quality and efficiency of growth, services, innovation, technology and high-end products will boost stronger interaction with international business and generate greater opportunities for trade, investment and cooperation.

  There is greater appreciation and sense of urgency to build up synergy between the respective development and reform agenda of China and the EU. Many are of the view that China and the EU have become partners in a deeper sense than just trade. The two sides should implement the China-EU 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation with renewed ambition and vigor.

  While pushing forth negotiations on a China-EU Comprehensive Investment Agreement, China and the EU should open up new cooperation opportunities, including, among others, “One Belt One Road” initiative, ICT, innovation, sustainable urbanization, infrastructure, pollution reduction, public services, modern agriculture, energy conservation, as well as rule of law, mobility facilitation, people-to-people exchanges and culture diversity.

  There is strong voice for expanding and deepening communication and coordination on global issues. Being fully convicted that China and the EU are key international players, the general sentiment is that China and the EU must work hand-in-hand on climate change, environmental protection and post-2015 international development agenda and promotion of an fair and just international order and international system.

  There is, in the meantime, wariness of conflicting interest and increasing competition between China and the EU and cautious approaches toward issues such as a China-EU FTA. However, the overriding argument is that China and the EU have a common stake in consolidating their partnership featuring peace, growth, reform and civilization. So long as the two sides are guided by their vision for mutual respect and win-win, they will embrace various challenges and broaden and deepen their converging interests while bridging or reserving their differences.

  As an envoy for friendship, I am very much encouraged by the important message transpired from the 4th Europe-China Forum. I wish to thank the Forum and its participants for their valuable contributions and I look forward to the continuous intellectual input to shaping a shared future of China-EU Strategic Partnership that will contribute further to the promotion of peace, prosperity and progress of both China and the EU and the world at large.
