Chinese Ambassador Gui accepts interview of Chinese language media in Sweden

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, Jan. 2, 2019(Greenpost) –On December 29th, Chinese Ambassador Gui Congyou accepted a written interview with three Chinese-language media in Sweden including Green Post. The full text is as follows:

  Q: Dear Ambassador Gui Congyou, how do you evaluate the development of Sino-Swedish relations in the past year?

A: 2018 is a very important year for both China and Sweden. The year 2018 is the first year for China to fully implement the spirit of the 19th Party Congress and the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up. Sweden held a general election in September. Over the past year, Sino-Swedish relations have maintained an overall stable development, and new achievements have been made in pragmatic cooperation in various fields.

First, the two sides maintained exchanges at all levels and in various fields. The diplomatic departments of the two countries maintain regular communication. Swedish Infrastructure Minister  Tomas Eneroth led a delegation to attend the first China International Import Expo held in Shanghai in early November this year. The pragmatic cooperation of the two countries and provincial and municipal delegations frequently exchanged visits, and exchanges between the economic, trade, scientific research and education sectors were close.

Second, economic and trade cooperation continued to grow rapidly. From January to October, Sino-Swedish bilateral trade volume increased by 17% to 12.4 billion US dollars. The annual trade volume and Sweden’s trade surplus with China are expected to reach new heights. China-Sweden “One Belt, One Road” cooperation has made positive progress. China Eastern Airlines has opened a direct flight from Shanghai to Stockholm. The Swedish province of Dalarna has opened its doors to China in the city of Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province. During the first Expo, Swedish companies signed a contract worth US$500 million with China.

Third, exchanges and cooperation in science and technology, culture, and education have maintained a good momentum. Professor Chen Zhu, a famous Chinese scientist, won the Swedish Sjöberg Prize. The China Association for Science and Technology and the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering signed a cooperation agreement. The first Chinese Culture Festival was successfully held in the King’s Tree Garden(Kungsträdgården) in Stockholm’s landmark venue. Many outstanding Chinese art groups gave performances in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Falköping  and were well received by the local people.

Fourth, China and Sweden have conducted close communication and coordination in the multilateral arena. Facing the uncertainty of the  international situation, China and Sweden firmly support multilateralism, advocate free trade and oppose unilateralism and protectionism. The two sides have conducted effective coordination within the multilateral framework such as the UN Security Council, and conducted sound communication on hot issues in the DPRK nuclear and Yemen, and jointly committed to maintaining world peace, stability and development.

At the same time, we also saw that China-Sweden relations have been disrupted by some negative factors this year. The Swedish police treatment of the three Chinese tourists harmed their basic human rights such as personal safety and dignity. The Swedish TV station produced an insulting program which caused strong indignation and solemn protests from all Chinese people and the vast number of overseas Chinese in Sweden. This has damaged the good image of Sweden in China. We continue to urge the Swedish side to openly and sincerely apologise for the above negative events. Being ignorant about China, some politicians, media and forces in Sweden have wrongly accused China  and even interfered in China’s internal affairs. These negative factors have undoubtedly created unnecessary obstacles to the development of China-Sweden friendly cooperation. We are firmly opposed to this.

In general, I feel that friendly cooperation is the mainstream of Sino-Swedish relations. Promoting the positive development of bilateral relations is the common aspiration of the two peoples. The deepening of Sino-Swedish relations has deep potential and broad prospects. China has always been committed to promoting the continuous development of China-Sweden friendly cooperation. It is hoped that the Swedish side will go hand in hand with the Chinese side. On the basis of mutual respect and equal treatment, seek common ground while reserving differences, build consensus, and achieve win-win cooperation, creating favorable conditions for the healthy and stable development of China-Sweden relations.

Q: The Swedish media has a new understanding of you. They think that you like to confront the Swedish media. You often point out their mistakes. What is your comment on this comment?

A: The media is an important bridge between the two peoples and plays an important role in enhancing mutual understanding between the two sides. I have noticed that with the rapid development of China and the continuous expansion of China-Sweden cooperation, the Swedish media is paying more and more attention to China. There are many objective and positive reports on the development achievements of China’s reform and opening up over the past 40 years. Mutual benefit cooperation in economic and trade investment, scientific and technological innovation, energy conservation and environmental protection. Such reports will help the Swedish people to fully and accurately understand China and facilitate the smooth development of bilateral relations.

At the same time, there are still some media and journalists in Sweden who look at China with colored glasses. They are full of prejudice, stereotypes, ignorance and arrogance against China, and blame China without any basis. The China they wrote about is far  from the real contemporary China. Some media only allow themselves to distort China, but they cannot allow others to speak about China’s achievements and China’s position. This is a serious violation of the moral principles of the journalism profession. It is a typical media tyranny and public opinion dictatorship, and is not conducive to the smooth development of Sino-Swedish relations. In order to prevent these false reports from misleading the Swedish people and affecting the friendly cooperation between the two peoples, we shall realistically point out their mistakes and clarify China’s position. We welcome the constructive comments of the Swedish friends, but we have to respond to some of the crimes that are completely unconventional and with prejudice. The reason that we take the trouble to  point out the mistakes that some media and journalists have made is hoping that they will join in the Sino-Swedish friendly cooperation. We hope that the Swedish people will have full access to information and understand an objective and authentic China. I hope that some Swedish media and journalists will let go of arrogance and prejudice, truly follow the professional ethics of journalism, and treat China in an objective and fair manner. As an ambassador, the door to dialogue and communication has always been open.

Q: 2019 is the 70th anniversary of China’s founding of the People’s Republic of China, and the 69th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Sweden. What is your outlook on Sino-Swedish relations in this important historical period? What major events are expected to occur?

A: 2019 is the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China. It is a crucial year for winning the goal of building a well-off society in an all-round way and achieving the goal of the first century in China. On the basis of summing up the achievements of the reform and opening up experience over the past 40 years, we will start with new morale and inherit the new development concept of innovation, coordination, green, openness and sharing, and continue to strive to achieve the goals of “two hundred years” and realise the dream of rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.  This will definitely bring new important opportunities for the development of Sino-Swedish  relations.

In 2019, China and Sweden will carry out more dialogues and exchanges at all levels and in various fields to enhance the frequency of exchanges and enhance mutual understanding. The Swedish cabinet formation process is still ongoing. After the formation of the new Swedish government, we are willing to communicate with the Swedish side to jointly plan the development of bilateral relations in the next stage. The two sides should continue to expand pragmatic cooperation in various fields, implement the consensus reached, and actively expand cooperation in the fields of innovation, green economy, energy conservation and environmental protection, and high-end manufacturing, so that the two peoples can gain more sense of gain. We are willing to join hands with Swedish friends to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 69th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Sweden. We will carry forward the traditional friendship between the two countries and give full play to the potential of cooperation to inject positive energy and new impetus into Sino-Swedish relations.

Q: What are your will and expectations for the overseas Chinese in Sweden?

A: In 2018, the embassy resolutely implemented Xi Jinping’s socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era, upholding the principle of “diplomacy for the people”, actively implementing the party and government’s Huiqiao Huimin policy(policy that benefits overseas Chinese and Swedish Chinese), and ensuring that the motherland’s concern for the vast number of overseas Chinese is implemented. The Embassy highly appreciated and actively supported the overseas Chinese  in their efforts to build a harmonious overseas Chinese society, carry out Chinese education, and safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of compatriots in Sweden, and implemented a series of convenient measures to apply for consular documents.

In 2019, the consular department of the Embassy will be officially renamed the Consular Affairs Department. This change highlights the increasingly important position of the overseas Chinese work in the overall work of the Embassy and reflects the determination of the Embassy to better serve the overseas Chinese. I hope that through our efforts, the vast number of overseas Chinese companions will feel happier and happier. The process of China’s 40 years of reform and opening up has fully proved that the vast number of overseas Chinese are important witnesses, participants and contributors to reform and opening up. It is hoped that the overseas Chinese compatriots will seize the historical opportunity of the new round of reform and opening up of the motherland, continue to carry forward the glorious tradition of patriotism and love the country, firmly safeguard the motherland’s reunification, care for and support the development of the motherland, actively promote the pragmatic cooperation and humanities exchanges between China and Sweden, and promote outstanding Chinese culture. To make new contributions to the Chinese dream of building a well-off society in an all-round way and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

2019 is coming soon, I would like to take this opportunity to extend the blessings of the New Year to the vast number of overseas Chinese. I wish you all the best in the new year, taking advantage of the development of the motherland, sharing the dividends of the motherland’s prosperity and revival, and achieving a better life pursuit.

Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä’s New Year Message

This past year has been a year to commemorate Finland’s Civil War of 1918. The year began with a joint declaration of the parties in Parliament, in which we committed to the principles of democracy and the rule of law and condemned all use of violence in politics. Our shared wish was to commemorate the anniversary in the spirit of reconciliation.

This wish has been fulfilled. The commemorative year has united our nation. After a hundred years, it is now finally possible to mourn together without vengefulness or bitterness. Research has shed valuable new light on the events of 1918.

In the joint declaration of the party leaders, we also promised to take care of Finland’s rule of law, which is based on respect for laws and an independent judiciary. We emphasised that no one in Finland has the right to take the law into their own hands.

News stories from Oulu over the past few weeks have once again drawn attention to the principles of the rule of law. The suspected acts of sexual abuse of minors have provoked feelings of shock and anger among the people of Finland.

First of all, every person who comes here must comply with Finnish laws and respect the integrity of all persons. We will not compromise on this in any way. People who are guilty of crimes are held responsible for their actions according to the principles of the rule of law. Serious offences also have a negative effect on the decision to grant permanent residence permits.

Second, it is important to remember that in this case, too, the suspected offences have been committed by individuals, not population groups. The incidents are being investigated by the police and the judgments will be made by the independent judiciary. I urge everyone not to use these events to incite hatred against refugees or people with a foreign background. It is important to remember that in a state governed by the rule of law, taking the law into one’s own hands is a crime, as is spreading hate speech.

–    –    –

When it comes to the economy, the year now coming to a close has marked the third consecutive year of strong growth. Thanks to this growth, the employment rate has improved significantly, with more than 130,000 new jobs created over the electoral term. This has played an important role in preventing increases in inequality and income disparity.

This year, the employment rate increased to 72 per cent. The Government’s target has now been achieved. I am especially happy that we have managed to halve the rate of long-term unemployment. In order to secure the welfare society, this positive development needs to continue. Over the next government term, the employment rate must be increased to 75 per cent. This means we must continue to implement systematic reforms. For example, we have to make it easier for people with partial work ability to be part of the workforce.

The pull of the global economy has further accelerated the growth. Achieving this growth has also required a systematic approach and cooperation in managing the country’s economy. The Competitiveness Pact of 2016 played a decisive role in achieving our objectives. Labour market organisations took responsibility for restoring our competitiveness. Now we can enjoy the fruits of the Pact in the form of new jobs.

–     –     –

One of Finland’s most important strengths is its ability to engage in cooperation that transcends ideological borders. Moving forward, this is a tradition we should continue to foster.

We have recently seen examples of how a lack of cooperation can shake even the strongest democracies.

The era of ideologies is not over, as was predicted not long ago. On the contrary, strong ideological movements, organised in the form of political parties, are an essential precondition for democracy.

Parties must be able to maintain a direct connection with the feelings and wishes of citizens. If this connection is lost, parties can be replaced by other forces. In the worst case, we may have to face the rise of extremist movements that openly scorn and ridicule the principles of democracy, the rule of law and human rights. Lessons from history about the devastating effects of such forces must not be forgotten.

–    –    –

Next July will mark exactly one hundred years since the entry into force of Finland’s republican constitution. Finland chose to be a democratic republic rather than a monarchy. The republic means that all Finns are equal in the eyes of society. One hundred years ago, the republic was a sign of confidence, a message that power belongs to the people and that the people are able to make responsible decisions together.

Next year, we will see a celebration of democracy when our country holds its parliamentary elections. We are facing significant challenges, both in Finland and in our cooperation on the international stage. I hope to see honest campaigning focused on finding solutions, rather than inciting fear and placing blame. I believe that voters share this hope.

Around Christmas, we saw an encouraging example of cooperation, as all parties in Parliament, with the exception of one, came together to agree on common climate policy goals. This provides an excellent foundation for our work in the last half of next year when Finland takes on the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

In future, only charges provided by law could be collected from clients of health and social services

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, Dec. 14(Greenpost)–The Government is proposing a new Act on Client Charges in Health and Social Services that would apply to health and social services organised by counties. In future, only service charges provided by the Act on Client Charges in Health and Social Services could be collected from clients.

The aim is that the service charges would be reasonable and not prevent people from using the health and social services they need.

The client’s own county would charge the client. Counties could also charge less than the maximum fee, or let their residents use services free of charge. The client would always pay the same sum for the same service organised by the county, irrespective of who provided the service. The county would use the same client charges for services provided by the county itself and for services bought from other service providers against the client’s health and social services voucher or personal budget. The service provider would be allowed to charge for unattended appointments that had not been cancelled.

As before, there would fixed client charges and client charges based on the client’s ability to pay (income-related charges). When determining income-related charges, only the clients’ continuous, regular income would be taken into account, not their property. Regulations concerning forest income would remain unchanged.

Scope of application of payment ceiling becomes broader

The aim is not to change the level of the current annual payment ceiling (EUR 683). In future, the following costs would be included when calculating whether the client’s total costs reach the payment ceiling: appointment and processing charges for oral health services, charges for temporary home nursing and hospital at home, charges for prehospital emergency medical services, and charges paid from the person’s income support.

Providers would be allowed to charge the same sums for distance services as for services received during traditional appointments. Charges for distance services would be included in the client’s costs for the payment ceiling. Payment practices in primary services and specialised services would be harmonised. In future, each appointment to a doctor, nurse or therapist would be charged separately, as well as each appointment for serial treatment.

The obligation to monitor when the client reaches the payment ceiling would be transferred from the client to the county.

The provision obliging to reduce or waive a charge would be made more effective and the provision would be extended to cover even the charges for short-term institutional healthcare. Clients should be informed about the possibility to apply for payment reduction. Payment reduction would be preferred rather than granting income support.

Free-of-charge health services to minors and for preventive purposes

In future, health services to minors would always be free of charge. The change would also apply to institutional healthcare and specialised medical care.

As before, preventive services would mainly be free of charge. Appointments to outpatient care services relating to mental health and substance abuse problems would be free of charge.

Charging criteria for home care, service housing and institutional care will be harmonised

The Act on Client Charges in Health and Social Services would lay down charges for long-term service housing. In the same connection, the principles for income-related charges for long-term or continuous and regular services would be harmonised.

Continuous and regular home care would be comparable to ordinary long-term service housing because both arrangements bring services to the clients’ homes and the clients do not need services 24 hours a day. The income limits for home care charges would be raised.

Long-term service housing with 24-h assistance would be considered equal to long-term institutional care as both service arrangements provide clients with intensive 24-hour care. The Act would require that a client shall have at least EUR 160 at his or her personal disposal in service housing with 24-h assistance. In institutional care, the sum is EUR 108.

The Act is scheduled to enter into force on 1 January 2021.


北欧绿色邮报网报道(记者陈雪霏)– 12月9日,全球36个中国文化中心首个古琴培训班在斯德哥尔摩圆满落下帷幕。


















北欧绿色邮报网报道(特约报道员王一加)-12月8日,2018年诺贝尔物理学奖、化学奖及经济学奖得主们在瑞典斯德哥尔摩大学Aula Magna礼堂向瑞典学生呈现了一场生动有趣并且振奋人心的演讲。


8日的报告会由诺贝尔物理学奖、化学奖及经济学奖评选委员会瑞典皇家科学院负责人主持开幕。这位主持嘉宾提到,“虽然作为一个生物学家,我很遗憾阿尔弗雷德·诺贝尔没有为生物设立一个奖项,但我很高兴看到今年诺贝尔物理学奖和化学奖的研究成果都对生物和医学领域有巨大的影响。所有的学科分支其实最终都是遵循大自然中最基本的法则,并且以一种超乎我们想象的方式紧密交织联系着。”随后,2018年诺贝尔物理学奖得主Arthur AshkinGérard MourouDonna Strickland,化学奖得主George P. SmithSir Gregory P. WinterFrances H. Arnold,以及经济学奖得主William D. NordhausPaul M. Romer都分别针对他们的研究成果对现场以及收看网络视频直播的观众做出了十分精彩并且深入浅出的演讲报告。

值得一提的是,今年的诺贝尔物理学奖得主Arthur Ashkin是历届诺奖获得者中年纪最大的一位,96岁高龄的他由于身体不便没能到现场,但他通过一个短视频向大家传达了问候,并表示他的好朋友René-Jean Essiambre会代替他做演讲,希望大家能喜欢。除了Arthur Ashkin,今天两位女性获奖者的报告尤为出众,并不单单是因为女性获奖者在所有诺奖获得者中所占比例较低,最主要的是因为她们今天的演讲新颖活泼、浅显易懂。除了有坚实的实验数据作支撑,这两位女性获奖者都采用了视频动画的形式将原本深奥难懂的科学原理展现得惟妙惟肖,也根据现实生活中人人能懂的例子向大家解释了她们的发现和发明。比如, Donna教授将不同颜色的光波比喻成身高不同的篮球运动员,Frances教授则将生命密码比喻成贝多芬的交响曲。观众席上时不时传出阵阵笑声和掌声,很多非专业领域的观众都表示对她们两位的演讲印象深刻,也能大致理解她们的研究成果及其所带来的深远影响。除此之外,经济学奖的两位获奖者则就气候变暖等环境变化同人类经济行为之间存在的紧密联系等方面做了相关讲解和探讨。

昨日,今年诺比尔生理医学奖得主James P. Allison和Tasuku Honjo也在瑞典卡罗林斯卡医学院Aula Medica礼堂做了关于肿瘤免疫治疗方面的演讲报告。他们表示,越来越多的研究表明,很多癌症均可通过免疫疗法治疗,预计到2030年,免疫疗法将会占所有癌症治疗方式的90%。“癌症变成一种慢性病指日可待,未完待续”。



So many accidents, do you think Americans are stupid?

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

Since Iraq war I decided not to speak about politics because the real politics was power politics. But politics often comes to you and you have to think a little bit.

Recently Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou was arrested by Canadian police.  It happened just before or after Trump and Xi meeting. Some people said it was a coincidence.

If I remember clearly, when Xi visited Trump in the latter’s home garden in Florida, just before they began to talk, Trump told Xi that he had just sent a very advanced bomb to Syria.

And Xi was like when Liu Bei met Cao Cao. When Cao Cao said to  Liu Bei, do you know who are the heros in this world? Liu Bei said I don’t know. Cao Cao said, only you and I are heros in this world. Liu Bei was shocked while outside there was a thunderstorm.  Liu said oh, I am sorry, I was afraid of the thunderstorm.

Some people think it was just an accident that Trump wanted to give this gift to Xi. And Xi said oh, Trump, I understand your meaning.  Then they began to talk again.

Long time ago in 1999 when Clinton administration was in power, America went to Kosovo and bombed Yugoslavia. By the way they also bombed the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade. Three people were killed.  And they were two journalists and one family member.  Afterwards the American side said it was a mistake. They used a wrong map.

In 2002 when I visited Las Vigas, I met a group of American men and they said to me it was an accident, right? I said, yes, it is an accident.

But Chinese wisdom is that anything cannot repeat three times.  If it repeats three times or more, it means something serious. So I like to ask that, Are Americans so stupid to have such many accidents?









我到办公室一看,灯火通明,王国庆主任也来了。播音员原能刚从楼上下来。我一看时间已经6点30多了。大家都很高兴,甚至是很兴奋地谈论着,英语部再次进行直播,插播新闻Breaking News. 这是我上班四个月以来从来没有见过的。




其实,我这个职务是新闻班中最低的一个,也是最后一关,其实也是非常重要的一关,叫PE就是program editor.

PE 就负责写节目单,搞清楚先对美东海岸,西海岸,然后是澳新。晚上对欧洲时我就不用管了。但是,这么简单的工作,如果弄混了,也会犯及其严重的错误。另外,在高度紧张的情况下,你还能不能沉着的录音也是个问题。有的人关键时刻手发抖了。因此,很快,其他人都到时效差一些的报道和专题部去了。只有我留在了这里。我的导师金梅芬是一个比较苛刻的人,但是,对我却是十分的和蔼。她说,小陈行!我受到鼓励,就屁颠屁颠地努力工作。尽力认真做好每一项任务。尽管是地位最低的,但是,我们必须从最低的做起。更低的是糊信封。













今日头条:冰岛庆祝独立100周年 芬兰发去贺信

北欧绿色邮报网报道(记者陈雪霏)– 历史上的今天是冰岛一个只有大约35万人口的小国独立100周年纪念日。冰岛是1918年从挪威和丹麦统治下独立的。到1944年建立的共和国。




Iceland is celebrating the centenary of its independence and sovereignty on Saturday 1 December. Prime Minister Juha Sipilä has congratulated Icelandic Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir on Iceland’s 100th anniversary.

In his congratulatory letter, Sipilä affirmed Finland’s commitment to the further development of the excellent relations between the two countries and wished Iceland continued success in the future.

Finland will also mark Iceland’s centenary by flying the national flag and illuminating the seaside façade of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ main building. The Ministry of the Interior has issued an order on flying the national flag at the Government Palace and Parliament in honour of the 100th anniversary of Iceland’s independence. Flags are to be raised at 8.00 and lowered at 16.00. The Ministry of the Interior recommends that the national flag be flown throughout the country.

The Ministry for Foreign affairs will celebrate Iceland’s anniversary by illuminating the seaside façade of its main building, Merikasarmi in the Katajanokka district of Helsinki. The illumination of Merikasarmi will also mark Romania’s centenary. The Merikasarmi façade will be lit up from Friday evening through Sunday morning. The illumination is also a part of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ own 100-year celebration.
