"Romania and China have a long history of good relationship," Andrei Dolineaschi, deputy secretary general of the Social Democratic Party of Romania (PSD), said Monday in a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the Fourth China-Europe High-level Political Parties Forum.

The forum kicked off in Suzhou, in East China's Jiangsu province, on Monday afternoon, with the goal of enhancing mutual trust and cooperation between China and Europe.

"It is a good idea to hold the forum," he said Monday morning during a visit to a model village in Suzhou before the opening ceremony. And he hoped that “China could invest in Romania to help build roads, factories, etc.”

China has promised investment in the past. On April 26, 2012, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said during a meeting with Romanian Prime Minister Mihai Razvan Ungureanu that China will encourage its enterprises and financial institutions to hold in-depth discussions with Romania on large-scale infrastructure projects.

At the opening ceremony, Dolineaschi said the forum provided an opportunity for Europe and China to share their visions for the future. "Although we are thousands of miles away, the problems we face are almost the same. We have a lot to learn from each other."
