After the agreement is signed, China's first batch of 100 well-known geographical indications will be protected by the European Union, and the second batch will include another 175 geographical indications. In short, this agreement will help consumers on both sides obtain more of each other's characteristic products and better meet the needs of consumers on both sides."

It also fully demonstrates that trade relations between major economic powers are not a zero-sum game, but a combination of both competition and cooperation. For the enterprises and people on both sides, the agreement means more investment opportunities, a better business environment, more convenient market access, more employment opportunities, and high-quality and low-cost products. It will definitely bring tangible benefits to everyone."

Storyline


The China-EU leaders' meeting on Monday produced fruitful achievements in multiple fields, said Chinese Ambassador to the European Union (EU) Zhang Ming on Tuesday.

Chinese President Xi Jinping co-hosted a China-EU leaders' meeting Monday evening in Beijing via video link with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose country currently holds the EU's rotating presidency, European Council President Charles Michel, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

In an interview with China Central Television (CCTV), Zhang noted that three important achievements were made in the leaders' meeting.

"The first achievement is that the two sides announced the formal signing of the China-EU Geographical Indications Agreement. The second is that the two sides confirmed that they will speed up negotiations of the China-Europe Bilateral Investment Agreement and complete the negotiations within this year. The third is the decision to establish a high-level dialogue on the environment and climate, as well as high-level dialogue in the digital field to create green partnerships and digital partnerships between China and Europe," he said.

Zhang explained that geographical indications (GIs) are a distinctive sign used on products that have a specific geographic origin and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin. The GI agreement will greatly benefit both sides, he added.

"The protection system of geographical indications on products aims to improve the quality and credibility of the goods, and to protect consumers from counterfeits. The China-Europe Agreement on Geographical Indications stipulates the regulations of GI protection and confirms a mutual recognized list of geographical indications. After the agreement is signed, China's first batch of 100 well-known geographical indications will be protected by the European Union, and the second batch will include another 175 geographical indications. In short, this agreement will help consumers on both sides obtain more of each other's characteristic products and better meet the needs of consumers on both sides," said Zhang.

Regarding the China-Europe Bilateral Investment Agreement, Zhang said once it's signed, it will mean a new era for trade relations between China and Europe.

"If the investment agreement, which is the core topic of China-Europe economic and trade relations, can be reached, it will mean that the major upgrade of China-EU economic and trade relations on the basis of mutual benefits will usher in a new chapter. It also fully demonstrates that trade relations between major economic powers are not a zero-sum game, but a combination of both competition and cooperation. For the enterprises and people on both sides, the agreement means more investment opportunities, a better business environment, more convenient market access, more employment opportunities, and high-quality and low-cost products. It will definitely bring tangible benefits to everyone," said the ambassador.
