For the first time, a report on China's regional participation in the cooperation between China and 16 Central Eastern European Countries (China-CEEC 16+1 Cooperation) in 2018 was released on Wednesday. 

Conducted by the China-CEEC Think Tanks Network of the Institute of European Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the study aims to provide statistical support for cities in China to contribute to the improvement of this cooperative mechanism. 

As a quantitative evaluation, the study uses first-hand statistics from local governments, and systematically analyzed the performance of Chinese cities engaged in the 16+1 Cooperation in five aspects, namely infrastructure connectivity, economic partnership, policy synergy, people-to-people exchanges, and locally-based think tank's involvement. 

Ningbo, a coastal city in east China's Zhejiang province, ranked first in three of the five aspects, topping the list of the 15 most active Chinese cities participating in the 16+1 Cooperation, followed by Tianjin, Beijing and Xiamen. 

"Ningbo outperformed other cities thanks to its natural advantages in developing an export-oriented economy and the high attention paid by local authorities to the cooperation," the study said. 

Tianjin and Beijing came in first for infrastructure connectivity and people-to-people exchanges, respectively.
