The European Union would like to see more specific cooperation and positive achievements with China in facilities connectivity during the coming Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing.

Hans Dietmar Schweisgut, the EU's ambassador to China, said on Tuesday - which was also Europe Day - that the bloc supports facilities connectivity between China and Europe, believing it could boost sustainable growth. He said Europe has a lot of experience of developing connectivity that could share with China.

Schweisgut also said that he has renewed confidence in EU's economic situation and in maintaining a strong community, especially after the election of Emmanuel Macron as French president on Sunday.

"A strong Europe is also a strong partner for China," he said.

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation is the highest-level international meeting since the open and inclusive Belt and Road Initiative was proposed by President Xi Jinping in 2013.
