Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's comment on China's third policy paper on the EU

Q: We noted that the Chinese government issued a policy paper on the European Union (EU) this morning. Is it of any special significance to the China-EU relations under the new circumstances?

A: The Chinese government issued its third policy paper on the EU today, following the previous ones in 2003 and 2014 respectively. The policy paper is an important proclamation of China's policy on the EU, which elaborates the goals of China's policy on the EU in the new era and the important measures to strengthen the dialogue and cooperation in various areas between China and the EU going forward.

The EU makes a vital strategic force in the international landscape. China values the EU's role and influence in the regional and international affairs, and developing the relationship with the EU has been among the priorities of China's diplomacy all along. In recent years, the building of the China-EU partnership for peace, growth, reform and civilization has continued to make new progress. The China-EU Comprehensive Strategic Partnership has continued to grow in both width and depth, forming a sound pattern of all-dimensional, multi-tiered and wide-ranging exchanges and cooperation. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the China-EU Comprehensive Strategic Partnership and the 20th anniversary of the China-EU Summit, when the China-EU relations face a new prospect and key opportunity for further development. The Chinese government hopes to deepen and broaden comprehensive cooperation with the EU, move forward the China-EU relations and jointly build the world peace, contribute to global development and uphold the international order.
