Since the launch of the Cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European Countries eight years ago, both sides have made positive progress in cooperation in the fields of economics, trade and investment, cultural exchange, and construction. During the changes unseen in the last hundred years, the foundation of China-CEEC cooperation has been preserved. However, this cooperation is entering the “deep water” phase, facing increased EU interventions and games between China and the United States. In order to respond to internal and external challenges, China-CEEC cooperation should take full advantage of various opportunities, constantly improve, actively build public opinion, encourage companies to take the lead and solve problems around the trade deficit in the right way.

Keywords: China-CEEC cooperation, China-EU relations, Chinese diplomacy
