China Daily (USA) - - G20 2016 CHINA -

Edi­tor’s note: Mon­day was the fourth day of Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping’s busy schedule of bi­lat­eral meet­ings with lead­ers at­tend­ing the G20 Sum­mit.


China is will­ing to main­tain close com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­or­di­na­tion with Ger­many for a suc­cess­ful G20 Sum­mit in Ham­burg next year, Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping said.

China will not change its stance of firmly sup­port­ing the Euro­pean in­te­gra­tion process and be­lieves that Europe is ca­pa­ble and wise enough to face the chal­lenges, Xi said.

Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel said that Ger­many is will­ing to strengthen high-level com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­op­er­a­tion in trade and in­vest­ment with China.


The Chi­nese gov­ern­ment is will­ing to en­cour­age do­mes­tic com­pa­nies to in­vest in Spain as the two coun­tries are seek­ing to boost bi­lat­eral ties, said Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping.

Xi said that the two coun­tries should co­op­er­ate more in ar­eas such as fi­nance, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion and re­new­able re­sources, adding that the Yiwu-Madrid freight train con­nec­tion should be fully em­ployed to con­tin­u­ously en­large trade vol­ume.

Span­ish act­ing prime min­is­ter Mar­i­ano Ra­joy spoke pos­i­tively of China’s ef­forts in deal­ing with cur­rent eco­nomic chal­lenges, adding that his coun­try is will­ing to en­hance com­mu­ni­ca­tion with China and de­velop trade, in­vest­ment, cul­ture and ed­u­ca­tion.


France has al­ways been seen as an im­por­tant strate­gic part­ner to China no mat­ter how global sit­u­a­tions change, Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping said.

Xi pointed out that China and the Euro­pean Union have ex­ten­sive com­mon in­ter­ests. China ex­pects France to play a greater role in pro­mot­ing the healthy devel­op­ment of China-EU ties, he added.

French Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande said that France pays high at­ten­tion to its re­la­tions with China and is will­ing to pro­mote co­op­er­a­tion with China in agri­cul­ture, food, nu­clear power, tourism and the en­vi­ron­ment, as well as in­ter­na­tional and re­gional hot spot is­sues.
