Consolidating Sino-EU trust

Mutual understanding and benefits build the fundamental basis for relations to grow in stable and sustainable ways

In the course of the last 38 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and the European Union, especially over the last 10 years of our comprehensive strategic partners, China-EU relations have been constantly maturing with increasing interdependence. This has been a result of both sides' relentless efforts to constantly overcome their differences with trust. The history of China-EU relations tells of the paramount significance of deep mutual trust for the stable and sustainable growth of a relationship.

Mutual trust comes from knowing and understanding the other. It develops and consolidates as we support each other over time. On the part of China, we have always supported Europe's integration and its aspiration to play a significant role in global peace, stability, and prosperity. Over the years, China has remained steadfast and true to our position of supporting Europe - in both its good days and its bad days. Particularly since the outbreak of the debt crisis, when in recent years pessimistic voices against European integration and the euro have permeated widely, China has retained its confidence in the EU and has provided whatever assistance it can to Europe. Down the road, China will continue to support European integration and the EU's efforts to address its crisis and play a bigger role in international affairs.
