Mrs Xiaoyan is depicted in the photo together with the European Sting’s Editor in Chief, Mr Dennis Kefalakos, during the live interview taken last May at the Sting’s pavilion in European Business Summit 2015.

On October 14 the European Commission published a 26 page communication named “Trade for All: Towards a more responsible trade and investment policy“, where it describes a new investment approach of the EU.

Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner for Trade, declared on the matter: “We’ve listened to the debate”…”Europeans know that trade can deliver jobs, growth and investment for consumers, workers and small companies. And they want more of those results. But they don’t want to compromise on core principles like human rights, sustainable development around the world or high quality regulation and public services at home. And they want to know more about the negotiations we carry out in their name. So trade policy must become more effective, more transparent and more in tune with our values. In short, it must become more responsible. That’s what we’re doing today.”

The EU official communication touches various EU trade topics from TTIP to relations with WTO and investment in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Given the global importance of the matter, the European Sting asked the Chinese Mission to the EU how China sees this new EU trade approach. Mrs Xiaoyan Jiang, Spokesperson of the Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the European Union replied to the question with a clear remark.

Question: It was reported that the European Commission will explore launching negotiations on investment with Taiwan, as outlined in its latest trade policy communication released on October 14. Do you have any comment?

Mrs Jiang: The Taiwan question involves China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and bears on China’s core interests. We do not object non-official trade and culture exchanges between Taiwan and countries or international entities having diplomatic relations with China, but oppose the development of official ties in any form.

Respect for China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and adherence to the one-China principle has been the EU’s long-standing political commitment. The EU side should bear in mind the overall interests of China-EU relations, earnestly honor its commitment to the one-China principle, deal with Taiwan-related issues with prudence and refrain from having any form of official exchanges or signing any official agreement with the Taiwan authorities.
