On 23 August, Ambassador Gui Congyou met with Mr. Robert Winroth, County Councillor of the Västerbotten Province, at the Embassy. The two sides exchanged views on strengthening cooperation between Västerbotten and China in various fields such as innovation and sustainable development.

Ambassador Gui said that China’s economy is now entering into a stage of high-quality development. The Communist Party of China and the Chinese Government are doing their best to make the people live a high-quality life, which requires learning from the successful experience of other countries including Sweden. Sweden is a global leader in sustainable development and innovation. The development concepts of China and Sweden are highly compatible, and their economies are highly complementary, hence the enormous potential for cooperation. We welcome Västerbotten to actively carry out cooperation with China, explore cooperation opportunities in areas such as innovation, environmental protection and smart cities, and play a leading role in promoting China-Sweden friendship and cooperation at the local level.

Mr. Winroth said that China’s development achievements are admirable. Although Sweden and China are at different development stages, they are highly complementary in terms of technology, development concept and market capacity. Västerbotten has advantages in both traditional industries such as agriculture, forestry and mining, and emerging industries such as telecommunications and medicine. It is ready to actively expand exchanges and cooperation with China, so that the two sides can give full play to their comparative advantages, strengthen exchanges of concepts and technologies, and carry out large-scale cooperation to achieve mutual benefits and win-win results.
