“China takes Israel very seriously,” China’s Vice Premier Liu Yandong told President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday.
Recalling her previous visit in 2014, she said that she had been deeply impressed by Israel’s social and economic achievements and the goodwill towards China by the people of Israel.
She had returned with a very warm feeling towards Israel, she said.
Liu characterized her current visit as “a very important mission” in which she came to co-chair with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the Second Annual Israel-China Committee for Cooperation and Innovation, to sign co-operation agreements on education, agriculture, science and technology, intellectual property, health care and the exchange of human resources, and also to attend a meeting of Chinese and Israeli university presidents as well as a symposium on health care.
Liu, as the holder of degrees in chemical engineering, sociology, and law is particularly interested in the content of these meetings.
