Dr Lee Yang, member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and Vice-President of the China
Society for Finance and Banking (CSFB), has said that his country seeks to strengthen its relations with the UAE in all fields as it holds a strategic position in the region and is a central player in the implementation of the New Silk Road initiative.
Dr Lee Yang made these comments during a lecture entitled, “The Strategic Dimensions of Emirati–Chinese Relations” organised by the Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi, in the presence of Dr Jamal Sanad Al Suwaidi, ECSSR Director-General, and a gathering of intellectuals,
