8 March 2016, Workshop on Antimicrobial resistance prevention A465-C3, Beijing

(08/03/2016) Antimicrobial agents protect animal health and welfare and their rational use contributes to animal origin food safety. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global human and veterinary public health concern that is influenced by the use of antimicrobial agents in animals and humans. Therefore, there is an obligation by sectors that are related to human and animal health in promoting the responsible use of antimicrobials and support actions to control and prevent the resistance of pathogenic microorganisms to antimicrobial drugs. The theme, antimicrobial resistance, is part of the “One Health” strategy supported by the UN, WHO and OIE. In this context, the EUCTP II will organise, together with MOA, the Embassy of France and FAO; the seminar “Antimicrobial resistance prevention” to create awareness and promote good governance practices for control and prevention of AMR, regulatory frameworks for registration, distribution and use of veterinary drugs. Additionally, this activity will support the enforcement of measures for responsible and prudent use of antimicrobial agents in animals.

20 January 2016; EU-China Seminar on Tourism Cooperation A426-C1; Beijing

China has recently become the world’s largest outbound tourism market as well as an important destination for inbound tourism. However both Chinese inbound tourism from the EU and outbound tourism to the EU are comparatively less significant compared with other countries and regions. There is thus much room left for the development of the EU-China tourism industry. In order to discuss these issues and promote the implementation of the EU-China Joint Statement on Tourism Cooperation signed in 2013, EUCTP II will organise a seminar on tourism cooperation. The seminar aims at providing a platform for Chinese and European tourism stakeholders to discuss how to further promote inbound and outbound tourism to both destinations. European and Chinese representatives from institutions and businesses will be given an opportunity to discuss the following topics: (i) Optimising investment and B2B matchmaking; (ii) Improving tourism services and Promoting Tourism destinations between EU and China.

3 February 2016; EU-China Seminar on macroeconomic modeling: modeling the housing market and economic cycles A420-C1; Beijing

EUCTP II is coordinating a study report with the PBOC’s research bureau on the application of macroeconomic models to regulate the housing market. The main issues to be covered by the report are: EU’s experience on developing macroeconomic models with regards to the housing market; economic determinants of housing prices, sales and investment; impacts of macro and regulatory policies – interest rates, LTV ratio, taxes, and land supply on housing market activities. The study will provide PBOC with a framework for macroeconomic modeling for the housing market which could be used to analyse the interaction between housing market and economic cycles so as to enhance PBOC’s capacity to forecast macroeconomic cycles. EUCTP II will organise a seminar to disseminate the results of this study report. Representatives from the PBOC research bureau and its local branches as well as other relevant representatives from China’s central government ministries will be present.
