On 25 June 2024, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr Svetlan Stoev, held a meeting with Ms Jiang Yu, Special Representative of China under the CEE-China Cooperation Initiative.

During the meeting, bilateral relations were discussed, including this year's celebration of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, cooperation under the CEE-China Initiative and the EU-China partnership.

Ambassador Stoev noted that Bulgaria's priorities in cooperation with China are the development of trade relations, especially in the field of agricultural goods, connectivity and tourism. Trade between the two countries has been growing over the past year, but Bulgaria would like to see an increase in the volume and variety of Bulgarian goods on the Chinese market, facilitation of export procedures for agricultural goods and achieving balance and reciprocity.

The two sides discussed opportunities for the development of international transport routes, especially in the field of rail and air transport, as a further prerequisite for promoting trade in goods.

Ambassador Stoev noted China's important role as an influential country and permanent member of the UN Security Council with regard to the war in Ukraine, as well as our desire to constructively engage China in international formats and dialogue.
