German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will visit China in April, accompanied by three ministers and a high-ranked delegation.

Benjamin Creutzfeldt, managing director of the Confucius Institute in Leipzig, shared his thoughts on Scholz’s visit to China.  According to Creutzfeldt, Chancellor Scholz’s second visit to China shows his determination to engage with China face to face.

Creutzfeld also hopes that the visit can break up prejudices and show that person-to-person relations are the key to getting along and to communicating about issues that are complicated. Besides, Creutzfeldt firmly believes that Germany and many other European countries could benefit from the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which is an important step forward towards sustainable global logistics, although the BRI has been politicized and painted in a negative tint.
