China hopes the upcoming China-Europe political party forum will help cement bilateral relations, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said Tuesday.
The CPC will host the first-ever China-Europe High-Level Political Party Forum in Beijing from May 24-25 under the theme "Global Challenges and China-European Cooperation."
This year marks the 35th anniversary of the establishment of China-Europe diplomatic ties.
"The forum is a big event in the history of China-Europe political party exchange," said Liu Jieyi, vice minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
Senior CPC leaders will attend the forum and meet more than 50 leaders of European political parties.
They will discuss issues related to post-crisis reform of the international economic and financial system, global governance, climate change, environmental protection, and China-European relations.【1】 【2】
