The report detailed extensive contacts between Trump’s 2016 preside

ntial campaign and Moscow and the campaign’s expectation that it would ben

efit from Russia’s actions, which included hacking and propaganda to boost Trump and harm Democratic can

To attract more foreign investment to China, the country’s

To attract more foreign investment to China, the country’s

 top legislature recently passed the Foreign Investment Law, which says China will gradually shorten the negative list fo

r foreign investors to increase inbound foreign investment. This, together with Italy’s policy to welcome Chin

ese investment, is expected to help the two countries take more measures to boost investment cooperation.

Sino-Italian friendly exchanges have a long tradition, and the prospects for deeper bilateral cooperation are bright. This ye

ar marks the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-Italian comprehensive strategic partnership, and in 2

020 the two countries will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

Therefore, the two sides should synergize their development strategies and tap the potential for further bilateral cooperation. They should also strengthen bilate

al macroeconomic policy coordination under the frameworks of G20, World Bank, Asian Development Ban

k, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and other multilateral mechanisms, and help maintain the rule-based multi

lateral trading system and jointly promote global governance reform apart from deepening Sino-Italian and Sino-EU relations.
