Director General Cao Wenlian met with President Tvrdík of Czech-China Friendship Association


On September 1st, Director General Cao Wenlian met with Mr.Tvrdík, President of Czech-China Friendship Association. They had deep discussion about the next step of the Belt and Road Initiative China-Czech Cooperation Center. They have reached consensuses on searching for new projects, jointly hosting 2018 China Investment Forum, drafting the China-Czech Cooperation Annual Report and matters such as the establishment of a characteristic town.


First, Director General Cao expressed his warm welcome to President Tvrdík. He showed his appreciation for the contribution of the association and his congratulation on the achievements  made in promoting China-Czech cooperation. Director General Cao noted that ICC-NDRC would deepen cooperation with the association in building China-Czech Cooperation Center and endorse the proposal made by the Czech delegation. We would also facilitate coordination of cooperation projects and launch the collection of new projects. We should as well discuss the preparation of 2018 China Investment Forum in China. The two parties should summarize the progress in time, make a timeline and draft the China-Czech Cooperation Annual Report. In addition, we should explore the possibility of building a Czech-style characteristic town in China combining both the advantages of ICC and the excellent designers from Czech.


President Tvrdík showed his gratitude to ICC for promoting the establishment of China-Czech Cooperation Center and the bilateral cooperation. The center has done some solid work in promoting the projects. For example, ICBC will open a branch in Czech in September and China Eastern Airlines will open a direct flight From Xi’an to Prague in October. Czech will mark the 100th anniversary of its founding in 2018. The two parties could further showcase the cooperation achievements by taking this opportunity. President Tvrdík also expressed that he would like to have the endorsement of ICC-NDRC for the host of China Investment Forum. He as well seconded the proposal of the establishment of the characteristic town, which is an important way for Czech to publicize and deepen the cooperation between China and Czech. 



Deputy President Peter Mulleek, Secretary of President Li Ming of Czech-China Friendship Association, senior officers Mu Xiongbing, Ding Kai, Shi Weina and Li Qingli of ICC-NDRC were present at the meeting.
