More than 150 scholars and officials from China, Europe and the United States gathered in Beijing Friday for a forum on global governance.

The Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the Aspen Institute Italia and The Aspen Institute organized the forum titled "China, Europe, U.S Trialogue."

"Robust cooperation between China, Europe and the United States is driven by their extensive common interests," executive vice president of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee Li Jingtian told the forum's opening ceremony Thursday evening.

Li said the prospect for the three parties' strategic cooperation is broad.

Li called on China, Europe and the United States to work together to deal with global challenges.

Italian Minister of Economy and Finance Giulio Tremonti, Harvard University's Joseph Nye, former U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns and Chancellor of Oxford University Chris Patten attended the forum.

They discussed global governance, post-economic crisis challenges, sustainable development and international security.
