Li reiterated China's pledge to pursue a reform and opening-up policy and foster a business environment that is based on market principles, the rule of law and international standards, saying that the nation will continue to offer a level playing field for both domestic and foreign businesses registered in China.

Li expressed support for the establishment of an entrepreneurs' council to serve as a new platform for exchanges and cooperation between business leaders from both nations.

Rutte said he believes China will host successful Winter Olympics and athletes from both nations will put on a good performance at the event.

The two nations have seen constructive cooperation in wide-ranging areas, and bilateral relations have embraced a good growth momentum, he said.

He expressed hope that the two sides can further expand positive bilateral relations and deepen cooperation in people-to-people exchanges, trade, economics, agriculture and the circular economy.

The Netherlands is China's second-largest trading partner in the EU, with bilateral trading volume reaching $91.8 billion in 2020, according to China's Foreign Ministry.
