Mitsotakis Meets Chinese FM, Discusses Greece-China Bilateral Relations

October 27, 2021

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the Foreign Minister of the People’s Republic of China Wang Yi conducted a review of bilateral relations between Greece and China and international affairs during their meeting at the Maximos Mansion on Wednesday.

They also examined the prospects for further developing economic and investment relations after the Greek Parliament ratified the agreement for the concession of an additional 16 pct of the shares in the Piraeus Port Authority to COSCO Shipping.

In addition, they examined cultural ties in the framework of the Greece-China Year of Culture and Tourism 2021-22.

“We welcome you to Athens and, taking into account the fact that 2022 is an Olympic Games year, we wish you every success in their organisation. In September the inauguration of the Greece-China Year of Culture and Tourism 2021-22 took place in the Ancient Agora, which confirms the bonds of friendship between our states. We hope that in this area also we will further strengthen our cooperation,” Mitsotakis said.

The Chinese minister, on his part, noted that bilateral relations were progressing smoothly and referred to a special bond between the Greek and Chinese people, adding that the purpose of his visit was to discuss the future growth of Greek-Chinese bilateral ties.

The meeting was also attended by Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, Greek Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy and Openness Kostas Fragogiannis, the head of the prime minister’s diplomatic office Ambassador Eleni Sourani and alternate government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni.
