“Mr Mayor, Ladies and Gentlemen, I am speaking to you from Greece. On behalf of the Chamber of Greek-Chinese Economic Cooperation, I would like warmly to thank the Mayor of Harbin for giving us the opportunity to be all together today at the virtual event Harbin Investment Presentation to Europe. To unite our efforts and to overcome, as soon as possible, the consequences of the pandemic and the economic crisis through cooperation, solidarity and partnership.
The Greek-Chinese Chamber has already, over the past two months, intensified its efforts to give a new momentum to the Greek-Chinese, Euro-Chinese and the Chinese-Mediterranean cooperation in the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative and the New Maritime Silk Road.
Our immediate aim is to create a large business Mediterranean Silk Road Alliance of the 25 countries of the Mediterranean Sea and China with the participation of Chambers and business associations from all of these countries, in order to make up for the lost time and to give an even more dynamic boost to the economic cooperation of China and the Mediterranean Sea countries.
We are certain that, in our efforts, we will have the fraternal support of the Chinese Chambers and Business Associations, as well of the local governments of the cities of China, such as Harbin, for a dynamic win-win business cooperation.
In closing, I wish great success to the new development investment projects of Harbin, this great historic city which we all admire so much.”
