Sino-EU Relations Have Bright FutureThe relations between China and the European Union benefit both sides and will play an important role in safeguarding international stability, Jacques Santer, former president of the European Commission, said Tuesday in Beijing.
Santer is here attending the International Forum on China and the World in the 21st Century.
Santer said that as the second largest recipient of foreign investment, China has played a major part in the world in fields like communications and information, and China's entry into the World Trade Organization will have a positive impact on its economic growth.
He noted that the reform China has implemented has affected Chinese society in many ways, and China's economic growth over the past 20 years has offered opportunities to European entrepreneurs.
Sino-EU relations in the 21st century will be more important than the past 25 years for maintaining international order, he noted.
Santer said that changes resulting from globalization create a new Europe and a new China, and make them much closer, thus supporting China's reform and its active involvement in international affairs will be conducive to the interests of Europe.
It is also important for Europe to cooperate with China in international organizations like the United Nations in the fields of weapons proliferation and the environment, he added.
Santer noted that the EU and China have shared common interests in a multilateral trade system.
