The 4th China-Central and Eastern Europe Countries (China-CEEC) Investment and Trade Expo was organized by the Ministry of Commerce and the Zhejiang Province Government on June 7, 2018, held in Ningbo, China. BGI, as the only invited Chinese organization, attended the conference. The theme of the conference was “Cross-Border Industrial Investment Cooperation in a New Era”, focusing on the overseas investment and cooperation needs of Chinese enterprises, investment environment, core industries and key projects of the Central and Eastern European countries.
At the conference, Mr. Wang Ren, Special Consultant for BGI President and former Assistant General Director of FAO, made a keynote speech on “Biotech Industry as a New Driver of China-Central and Eastern Cooperation”. He mentioned that genomics can bring new hope to the serious food safety and malnutrition challenges we are facing in the global urbanization. “BGI has been committed to benefiting the humankind by using genomics and exploring new technologies to improve health and prevent diseases,” said Mr. Wang Ren. He further added, "Based on these principles, BGI has developed multiple biotech industry cooperation in many European countries, and has established MGI foundation in Latvia.”
Mr. Wang Ren also spoke with Mr. Liu Dianxun, Director General of the Investment Promotion Agency of the Ministry of Commerce in China, on how enterprises can better link up the national policies and meet the needs of national strategic development plans. BGI will effectively use the mechanism and platform of the Ministry of Commerce to better carry out pragmatic cooperation with Central and Eastern European countries.
Mr. Wang Ren also had an in-depth conversation with Mr. Arvils Ašeradens, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Economics of Latvia, on the Latvia-Biolake-BGI Life Science and Technology Center in Latvia. During the Sixth Summit of Heads of Government of China and Central and Eastern European Countries on November 27, 2017, BGI, Wuhan National Bio-industry Base Construction Management Office and Ministry of Economics of Latvia signed a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in establishment of life science and technology center. The center will improve economic transformation and people’s livelihood and serve as an innovation and cooperation platform for life science enterprises and research institutions of both countries, providing state of the art equipment, mentorship and support to commercialization.
