2020 is not only the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Italy, but also the year when China's "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" ends. The two sides expressed their willingness to continue the momentum of regular high-level exchanges of visits and jointly plan for the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 2020.
