CCIEE and the Chatham House Launch “Cloud Exchanges”
On May 26, the China Center for International Economic Exchanges(CCIEE) and the Chatham House carried out “cloud exchanges”, discussing such issues as the impact of the pandemic on China-UK relations, a globalized UK and trans-pacific cooperation.
Representatives from both sides agreed that China-UK relations have become increasingly important after the Brexit and the two countries have great potential in bilateral economic and trade cooperation. It is of great significance to consolidate and develop China-UK relations during and after the pandemic period. Furthermore, they should continue to deepen mutual understanding and trust, cooperate in vaccine development, finance, trade, third-party market cooperation, global governance and so on. In terms of maintaining international order and rules, as well as the authority of international institutions, they should play a more constructive role.
