Se­nior Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) leader Liu Yun­shan met with a group of Euro­pean politi­cians, call­ing for closer ties be­tween China and Europe. “The Chi­nese party and gov­ern­ment at­taches great im­por­tance to the China-Europe re­la­tion­ship, re­gard­ing Europe as an im­por­tant power in to­day’s world,” Mr Liu told his guests, who were in Bei­jing to at­tend the Fifth China-Europe High-Level Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Fo­rum. Mr Liu, a mem­ber of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, briefed the Euro­peans on China’s new de­vel­op­ment con­cepts -- in­no­va­tion, co­or­di­na­tion, care for the en­vi­ron­ment, open­ing up and shar­ing, not­ing that the Belt and Road re­gional in­fra­struc­ture and trade ini­tia­tive is based on open­ness, in­clu­sive­ness and prac­ti­cal­ity. The de­vel­op­ment strate­gies of China and Europe are com­pat­i­ble with each other and the two sides en­joy great po­ten­tial for co-op­er­a­tion, said the of­fi­cial. Also a mem­ber of the Sec­re­tariat of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, Mr Liu said the Chi­nese side stands ready to work with the Euro­pean par­ties on the ba­sis of mu­tual re­spect and equal­ity to make use of the fo­rum.
