At the Fourth Summit of China and Central and Eastern European Countries in Suzhou, Premier Li Keqiang is giving a keynote speech.
The theme of this year’s meeting is “New beginning, New fields, New vision,” . Leaders from China and CEE countries have met three times since 2012 in Poland’s capital city of Warsaw, Romania’s capital city of Bucharest and Serbia’s capital city of Belgrade respectively, with a wide range of agreements reached in energy, infrastructure, trade and tourism, and scientific and technical cooperation.
The economies of CEE countries, complementary to China’s economy, have witnessed an increasing number of their products being exported to China.
Meanwhile, China, the world’s second-largest economy, has rich experience in infrastructure construction and has seen increasing Chinese companies investing in CEE countries, which provides impetus for economic growth in the region.
There is tremendous potential for China and CEE countries to work with each other, as Premier Li Keqiang has put it during the third leaders’ meeting in Belgrade.
