China and European Union discuss cooperation on migrationListen /
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), which hosted the seminar, says it was held under the framework of its "Capacity Building for Migration and Management in China" project.
IOM spokesperson, Jumbe Omari Jumbe says the aim of the seminar was to increase cooperation between the EU and China on migration issues.
"For a long time China has been a country of origin and transit migration. However, China nowadays is increasingly becoming a country of destination for, among others, EU citizens. Rising numbers of Chinese and EU tourists, students and businessmen brings up complex migration issues such as irregular migration, human trafficking and smuggling." (24")
