German Chancellor visits Xi'an E-mail

Written by ND
German Chancellor Merkel arrived in Xi'an yesterday evening (Friday, 16.07.10) to continue her China visit which started last thursday when she arrived in Beijing following an invitation of China's Premier Wen Jiabao. Merkel will visit China for 4 days.This is Merkel's fourth visit to China as Chancellor.

According to plan, Merkel will further take part in a symposium of german and chinese businessmen in Xi'an. Her first visit to Xi'an will also take her to one of the most known historic sites in China: The ancient terracotta army. Interesting anecdote: Merkel celebrates her 56th birthday in Xi'an today. Furthermore, Merkel will visit BYD's automobile factory. Angela Merkel's visit to Xi'an could increase Germany's chances to become the European site of BYD for the coming generation of electro automobiles. BYD cooperates since quite a time with german automobile producer Daimler to build electric cars.

Merkel said in Beijing that EU member countries in September will discuss the issue of recognizing China's market status. China has said the move would help it avoid punishing anti-dumping measures.

The Chancellor also said China still had not satisfied all the requirements for attaining market economy status in the eyes of Europe, a designation expected to lessen the occurrence of trade actions being taken against China.

"From the standpoint of market access, we very much hope that Germany, in entering China's market, can receive equal treatment; Chinese companies, like those of many other countries, enjoy very good access to the German market. We hope that German enterprises can enjoy the same access to the Chinese market" she said.
