China, EU see progress in new round of investment treaty negotiations

BEIJING, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) — China and the European Union (EU) have made progress in the 33rd round of bilateral investment treaty negotiations, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday.

The negotiations from Oct. 18 to 23 focused on the text of the agreement as well as the issue of market access, MOC spokesperson Gao Feng said at a regular news briefing.
