However, she also said China's big challenge this year would be to match the rhetoric with reform. Lu said that after nearly 40 years of reform and opening-up, China has become a main engine of growth for the world economy and that cooperation between China and the EU has been fruitful.
"China always upholds trade and investment facilitation, and opposes all kinds of protectionism," Lu said, hoping that the EU would view China's opening-up with a long-term perspective.
