Having signed an MOU on deepening all-around cooperation with the Czech Republic earlier this year, Zhejiang sent a 70-people-delegation led by Vice Governor Liang to the seventh China Investment Forum in mid-November. Being the largest among all the missions from China, the delegation extensively engaged in the event and the interaction with the Czech Republic and other attendees turned out to be tremendously rewarding. 

On November 14-15, the seventh China Investment Forum was held in Prague, the Czech Republic. The two-day event, an endeavor to implement China’s Belt and Road Initiative and the 16+1 Cooperation, focused on finance, sustainable development, tourism, e-commerce, infrastructure, sport, etc.. More than 1,000 government and business representatives from China and Central and Eastern European countries were present. The Forum drew much attention as demonstrated by participation of high-level officials including Czech President Miloš Zeman, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, Minister of Industry and Trade Jan Mládek, Assistant Minister of International Department of China’s CPC Central Committee Li Jun, Chinese Ambassador to the Czech Republic Ma Keqing, Special Envoy for the China- CEEC Cooperation Huo Yuzhen, Vice Governor of Zhejiang Liang Liming, and Vice Governor of Sichuan Zhu Hexin.

In her speech, Vice Governor Liang proposed that stronger bilateral ties should be forged in three aspects by joint efforts, namely, building platforms for cooperation, exploring prioritized areas of cooperation, and facilitating key projects

On November 14, the Department of Commerce of Zhejiang Province held the China (Zhejiang)-CEEC Trade and Economic Cooperation Seminar as part of the Forum. Over 230 CEEC government officials and business representatives met with their counterparts from Zhejiang. Six deals were sealed at the project signing ceremony during the seminar.

Goodbye, Prague. We have much to take home from this Forum. See u in 2017!
