EU and China held their 23rd bilateral summit via video conference on 1 April 2022, during which President of the European Council Charles Michel and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen held a virtual talk with Chinese president Xi Jinping. Xi called on the EU and China to continue their cooperation and to increase their communication about crucial global topics, in order to play a constructive role in the world. CCTV published a video to summarize the important summit and interviewed some European stakeholders, including the Chairman of the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC), Mr. Bernard Dewit.
Several European experts pointed out that they strongly agree with President Xi’s proposal that China and Europe should be the two major forces in maintaining world peace and respond to the uncertainty of the international situation with stable EU-China relations.
