The promotion of co-operation in key areas such as energy, transport, information and communication technologies, manufacturing, research and development and  financial services, are the aims of the updated Cooperation Framework 2020-2022, signed in Beijing by the Minister of Development and Investment, Adonis Georgiadis and the National Committee on Development and Reforms of the People’s Republic of China.

The plan states that the two sides will jointly introduce and promote potential joint venture projects and help both state and private companies identify investment and co-operation projects of mutual interest, while financial institutions of both countries will be encouraged to provide support to selected projects in order to promote their rapid implementation.

During his trip to China, the Greek minister also met with representatives of major Chinese companies who expressed their investment interest in Greece.
