Ambassador Yu said that since the establishment of diplomatic ties almost 50 years ago, China-Malta relationship has maintained strong vigor and vitality with deepening political mutual trust and mutually-beneficial cooperation. Our two peoples have forged fraternal friendship as we have helped each other through difficult times. In 2018, the two governments signed a memorandum of understanding on Belt and Road cooperation, injecting new impetus into our relations. China and Malta have complementary advantages. There is a lot of potential for cooperation in infrastructure, digital economy and new energy, as well as expanding third-party market cooperation.

China was among the first to bring COVID-19 under control, resume work and production and participate in the global response to the virus, yielding remarkable achievements. China is fostering a new development paradigm and embarking on a journey to fully build a modern socialist country. China stands ready to share development opportunities with all countries including Malta to jointly promote the world economic recovery.

Prime Minister Abela extended his welcome to Ambassador Yu and commended the traditional friendship between Malta and China and its recent development. Malta appreciates China's support and assistance in fighting COVID-19 and looks forward to enhancing cooperation in economic recovery to the benefit of both our countries.

The two sides spoke highly of the completion of China-EU Comprehensive Agreement on Investment. They agreed that the agreement will open new space for China-EU and China-Malta economic cooperation, and boost confidence in economic globalization as well as trade and investment facilitation and liberalization.
