  中欧双方一致认为,面对当前纷繁复杂的国际形势,特别是单边主义、保护主义抬头,中国和欧盟作为世界两大主要力量和经济体,有责任共同努力维护以规则为基础的国际秩序,倡导多边主义,支持自由贸易,促进世界和平、稳定与发展。

  中欧双方一致同意,共同维护联合国宪章以及国际法,加强外交和安全政策对话,应对共同挑战。致力于建设开放型世界经济,促进贸易和投资自由化便利化,抵制保护主义和单边主义。支持以规则为基础、以世界贸易组织为核心的多边贸易体制,遵守现有世贸规则。双方同意建立工作组这一沟通机制,讨论世贸组织改革问题。双方在此次领导人会晤期间交换了中欧投资协定清单出价,同意将中欧投资协定谈判作为最优先事项,努力为投资者建立开放、透明、公平、可预期的商业环境。推进在环境、能源、循环经济、科技创新、知识产权、工业、数字经济、城镇化等领域的对话合作。同意建立中欧禁毒对话、中欧人道主义援助对话,并就深化葡萄酒和烈酒行业合作开展联合可研。

  图斯克和容克表示,今年是欧盟同中国建立全面战略伙伴关系15周年,双方在贸易、投资、外交、互联互通、气候变化等领域的合作取得积极进展。当前国际格局正在发生重大变化,关乎世界的和平与发展。欧中双方应共同承担责任,抵制保护主义和单边主义,尊重公认的国际规则,汲取历史经验教训,避免冲突和动荡。“16+1合作”是有益的,欧方乐见中国同中东欧国家进行面对面沟通,在尊重欧盟职权范围内积极开展合作。

                               EU and China to deepen global strategic partnership

EU and Chinese leaders meet today in Beijing to underline and reinforce their strategic partnership and commitment to the rules-based global order, including as regards trade, combatting climate change and nuclear non-proliferation. They also discuss an investment protection agreement currently under negotiation. Together, the EU and China make up a third of global GDP.

The 20th Summit between the EU and China held today in Beijing has underlined that the EU-China partnership has reached a new level of importance for European and Chinese citizens and for the international community more broadly. President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and President of the European Council Donald Tusk represented the European Union at the Summit. The People's Republic of China was represented by Premier Li Keqiang.

"I have always been a strong believer in the potential of the EU-China partnership", said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. "Europe is China's largest trading partner and China is our second largest. The trade in goods between us is worth over €1.5 billion every single day. But we also know that we can do so much more. This is why it is so important that today we have made progress on the Comprehensive Agreement on Investment. That shows that we want to create more opportunities for people in China and in Europe."

Both China and Europe have come a long way in the last decades and they are still changing and growing. There used to be a relationship between a developed power and a developing country. Today, the focus is very much on the sharing of knowledge, know-how and experience between equal partners. Trade and business continue to be at the core of EU - China relations but the relationship is expanding.

"I am more convinced than ever that, in the era of globalisation and of interdependence, multilateralism must be at the heart of what we do. We expect all our partners to respect international rules and commitments that they have taken, notably within the framework of the World Trade Organisation", said President Juncker, confirming the EU and China's support to the rules-based, open and multilateral trading system committed to complying with existing WTO rules.

Good progress was made on the ongoing bilateral Investment Agreement negotiations to promote and protect each other’s’ growing investments The EU and China also agreed to conclude the negotiations on so-called Geographical Indications before the end of October.

Both sides have underlined, strong determination to fight climate change and demonstrate global leadership. They have also signed a Partnership Agreement on Oceans which contains clear commitments to protect the marine environment against pollution, including plastic litter, combat illegal fishing and explore potential business and research opportunities, based on clean technologies.

At the Summit, EU and Chinese leaders discussed also ways to support a peaceful solution on the Korean Peninsula; their commitment to full and effective implementation of the Iran nuclear deal; joint, coordinated work on the peace process in Afghanistan; and the situation in eastern Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol.
