    We have just signed a joint statement that puts in black and white our areas of agreement and clear recommendations on some very crucial topics for the future of our societies.

    With today's joint statement, we send a powerful signal and a concrete messages to the political authorities on both sides: after all, if actors as diverse and varied as we are, from both Chinese and European civil society, manage to speak with one voice, then our politicians have to take note.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I see the input that will be provided at the EU-China Round Table in the context of the overall relationship between the EU and China, such as the EU-China Strategic Partnership and the recent joint statement adopted at the EU-China summit in April this year.

    Dans bien des secteurs, l’UE et la Chine partage les mêmes vues. Vu l’interdépendance toujours plus forte qui caractérise ce monde connecté à l’échelle planétaire que je viens d’évoquer, resserrer notre coopération face aux défis communs est une exigence qui s’impose à nous. C’est dans le domaine du commerce et des investissements, en premier lieu, que nous nous devons tout particulièrement de garantir que la croissance soit durable, inclusive et profitable pour chacun. Nous devons prendre des mesures pour nous assurer que les systèmes financiers que nous gérons soient sains et stables, et continuer à mener une défense solidaire et énergique du système commercial multilatéral, ouvert et assis sur des règles que nous avons mis tant de soin à bâtir durant ces cinquante dernières années, voire depuis plus longtemps encore. Dans ce contexte, l’engagement actif et constructif de l’UE et de la Chine revêt la plus haute importance pour donner la garantie que l’OMC restera au cœur de l’architecture des échanges, placée sous le signe de l’ouverture.

    Over the past year we have been particularly active in engaging with our partners, the Chinese economic and social council. The purpose of this dialogue, which is done through what we call The EU-China Round Table have proven to be a very useful tool for putting across the demands and recommendations of civil society organisations to the EU and Chinese political authorities.

    The purpose of today's meeting is two-fold. We thought it would be good if we, representatives from European organised civil society, would meet to exchange information about planned activities in Rio and to see how we could further foster our common values and positions throughout these diverse activities. The second reason for today's meeting turns out to be very timely. Originally we had invited Timo Makela, Director of DG Environment, to give us a de-briefing on ongoing Rio negotiations in New York.

    We have in place for many years now the EU-China Round Table. Within this framework (which was started10 years ago, and was supported in the EU-China summit 2004), the EESC meets regularly with the Chinese Economic and Social Council. Just a few weeks ago we had our EU –China Round Table in Hangzhou. Our declaration adopted by the end of our discussions in April focused on sustainable urban development. Our two rapporteurs, Evelyne Pichenot on the European side, and Professor Zou Ji on the Chinese side, have done a huge work together.
