On 6 December, Ambassador Gui Congyou met with Annika Strandhäll, Minister for Health and Social Affairs.

Ambassador Gui spoke positively of the outcomes of the over-10-year-long cooperation between the National Health and Family Planning Commission of China and the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. He said that the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which was convened successfully not long ago, had made it the fundamental goal of CPC and the Chinese government to realize Chinese people's aspirations to live a better life and had decided to carry out the Healthy China initiative. He said the Chinese side stood ready to further strengthen exchange and cooperation in the field of health with Sweden to jointly enhance healthcare services for the two peoples.

Minister Strandhäll applauded Chinese positive attitude towards health cooperation and the Healthy China initiative, and expressed the hope that China and Sweden would renew the Plan of Action on Health Cooperation and expand research and collaboration in the fields of life-science, physiology and medicine.
