<<Dear friends of the EU and China.

I am very fortunate in being the Ambassador of the European Union to China at a time when this year sees the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the EU and China. This is an important milestone in an ever closer and more important relationship between our union of 28 Member States and the country which may soon be the biggest economy in the world.

When we look back on the past 40 years, it is clear that we have come a long way, with increased mutual knowledge and communication in many areas such as political links, trade and people-to-people contacts, which form the supporting pillars and strands that act as a bridge between us, making both sides more interconnected and interdependent than ever before.

But there is still much untapped potential in our relations and my hope is that both sides will use this celebratory year as a catalyst for further and deeper cooperation on many fronts, from trade negotiations to climate action, from conflict resolution to social justice.

I wish you all good health and prosperity for the Year of the Sheep,

Hans Dietmar Schweisgut
