"In Athens, as in Shanghai, we find that our relations are warmer than ever. Confidence is a given," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis stressed on Monday, during joint statements with the President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping in Athens, according to ANA.

Mitsotakis referred to the significant of the 16 agreements that are to be signed during the visit and the port of Piraeus, which is becoming a major transit hub. He welcomed the opening of Chinese banks in Greece and stressed the importance of strengthening the flow of Chinese tourists to Greece.

"China and Greece are partners for the establishment of one belt, one road. This initiative must be strengthened by the further development of your country. We look forward to implementing partnerships in many areas and we want to strengthen Piraeus's role in transit and further enhance the transport capacity of the China-Europe land-to-sea express line," the President of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping noted.

"We want the trade to continue, an expansion of bilateral trade and mutual investments, as well as to have investments in the energy, transport and banking sectors," the Chinese President pointed out and added:

"We will organize and host a year of culture and tourism between our two countries in 2021 and we want to enhance the teaching of our languages and strengthen contacts between academic communities so that we can get to know our cultures better."
