"The signing is like installing a new high-powered engine for China-Greece relations, which will inject strong and long-lasting impetus into the pragmatic cooperation between the two countries," said Hua, quoting Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

As an important meeting point of the land and maritime Silk Roads, Greece is a natural partner for China when it comes to the construction of the Belt and Road, Hua said, adding that the Port of Piraeus is a model of China-Greece cooperation.

Against the background of rising unilateralism and protectionism, the joint construction of the Belt and Road is an important symbol of multilateralism, according to Hua.

In addition, he continued, it is a useful exploration tool for the improvement of global governance, as well as the liberalisation and facilitation of trade and investment.
