On 30 November 2012, Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, embarked on a visit to Beijing. She reiterated the importance and benefits of increased cultural cooperation between the EU and China. During her visit, Androulla Vassiliou met with Liu Yandong, Chinese State Councillor, to take stock of the results so far of the People-to-People Dialogue launched in April 2012, and Yuan Guiren, Chinese Minister for Education, to discuss extending cooperation on joint schools and scholarships to boost learning mobility between the two regions. She also attended the closing ceremony of the EU-China Year, which provided the impetus for nearly 200 events. She then adopted with Cai Wu, Chinese Minister for Culture, a new joint declaration on cultural cooperation, which identifies priority areas of mutual interest such as the creative and cultural sectors, cultural heritage and contemporary arts.
