Circular bio-economy based on renewable resources provides a new solution to address the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental pollution and to tap the potential of natural resources. Forests are the largest productive renewable resources on land, containing a great potential to contribute to bioeconomy. China and Central and Eastern European countries have their own characteristics in forest resources, forestry industrial structure and market. Highly valuing the sustainable management and utilization of forest resources, China and CEE countries have a large potential for cooperation in forest bioeconomy development.
