Speaking at the seminar, Quan said that the Asia-Europe partnership has become the world’s largest inter-regional cooperation model.
To ensure that cooperation results match the two continents’ full potential, he suggested that both sides maintain efforts and diversify cooperative methods to lift the ties to a new height, with attention paid to collaboration between political parties.
