The Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced yesterday (20th) that it would reconsider the 16+1 (Communist China as well as Central and Eastern European countries) partnership with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said bluntly that the main policy of 16+1, the promises of economic diplomacy, investment projects and mutually beneficial trade have not been fulfilled in the past 10 years.

According to comprehensive media reports, past Czech governments and current President Milos Zeman have been committed to deepening relations with CCP, but with a series of investment failures of Communist China, the Czech Republic’s warning about CCP’s 5G technology, and the change of government, etc., these factors have caused the relationship between the two sides to drift further apart.

The cooperation between CCP and Central and Eastern European countries, also known as 16+1 cooperation, was established on April 26, 2012, and is an economic and trade cooperation between the CCP and Central and Eastern European countries. It has experienced turmoil such as the entry of Greece and the withdrawal of Lithuania. Currently, Estonia is also considering withdrawing.
