Press Release: President Juncker and Commissioner Malmström at the 12th EU-China Business Summit

This morning, President Juncker and Commissioner Malmström spoke at the 12th EU-China Business Summit, an event that provides an opportunity for EU and Chinese leaders to exchange views with representatives of the business community on economic relations between the European Union and China and on the challenges that remain. In his keynote speech, President Juncker said: “Our relationship is founded on a shared commitment to openness and working together as part of a rules-based international system. I am glad that we can meet here today and say this, loud and clear. It is one that recognises that together we can promote prosperity and sustainability at home and abroad. We applaud the ambition of China’s reform path. We recognise that reforms have been made and that plans have been established. But we would like to see implementation speed up – so that your policies are in line with your world vision.” In her speech, Commissioner Malmström stressed that: “Sound economic development, trade and investment also require respect for the rule of law, with independent lawyers and judges who can operate freely and independently. To conduct business — and for their daily lives — people need to be able to access free and independent information, communicate and discuss. This is a fundamental human right which also applies in the age of the internet. Limits to online freedom also affect peoples’ lives and the business climate.” The Business Summit took place in the sidelines of the 19th Summit between the European Union and the People’s Republic of China, which is currently ongoing. A signing ceremony will take place at 12:30 followed by a press conference at 12:40. A press release summarising the Summit’s deliverables will be available here this afternoon. Coverage is available live on EbS. For more information on EU-China relations, read the factsheet or consult the memo.

Press Release: Commissioner Vella travels to Indonesia for World Ocean Summit

Commissioner Karmenu Vella, responsible for fisheries and maritime affairs, is attending the World Ocean Summit in Bali, Indonesia this week. Speaking at the session ‘the ocean economy – a whale of an opportunity?’ yesterday, he stressed the potential for sustainable ocean-based growth, for instance in emerging technologies like ocean energy, and laid out the EU’s international ocean governance agenda. “Blue economic growth is neither automatic nor inevitable. If our oceans are in bad shape, the blue economy cannot thrive. That is why, last November, the European Union proposed 50 actions to create the conditions for a sustainable blue economy around the world. We are creating a healthy investment environment for a healthy and productive marine environment,” Commissioner Vella said. On the margins of the Summit, he discussed ocean governance and the potential of the blue economy with Ms Susi Pudjiastuti, Minister for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of Indonesia, Mr John Maneniaru, Minister for Fisheries and Marine Resources of the Solomon Islands, Mr Peter Thomson, President of the 71st United Nations General Assembly (UNPGA), and business leaders. Today, in the closing session, he will also draw attention to the fourth Our Ocean Conference, a high-level international event aimed at generating commitments for concrete and measurable actions for healthy, sustainable oceans worldwide. This year’s edition will be hosted by the EU in Malta on 5-6 October.
