During his speech, Ambassador Cui Aimin said that China’s economy is growing stronger and that new steps for China’s modernization and prosperity are being taken. Also, international relations are developing as the country has more to give in its future foreign endeavours.

Particularly interesting is the growth area of renewable energy, which in 2023 grew by 50% in the number of technical installations, according to Cui Aimin. He also mentioned, among many other things, China’s space program that has taken new steps in space exploration and that the infrastructure projects within the Belt and Road Initiative continue.

The Chinese Embassy in Sweden proceeded to develop cultural and economic projects together with Sweden during 2023. Mr Aimin said during his speech that he had numerous meetings with Swedish representatives across the country last year.

According to Chinese thinking, everything that you want to grow must be cultivated over time. We harvest the fruits afterwards, so for China’s representatives in Sweden, the vision is already laid out and it is about prosperity and benefit for all parties.

As someone said:

“What a person does and says has consequences. Every action becomes a seed that takes root and grows into what man himself may harvest”.

Cui Aimin:

“There is no geopolitical conflict, nor any historical grudge between China and Sweden, there are traditional friendships and strong industry complementarities, and there are very large opportunities for cooperation”, arguing that this must remain the case.

The Chinese Spring Festival at Konserthuset was visited by The China National Opera and Dance Drama Theater, whose artists travelled from China to offer culture and entertainment. Also on stage were Swedes in traditional Swedish folk costumes.
