German Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited Goethe Institut on his official trip to China in Beijing’s 798 Art District on Tuesday evening. Stephan Detjen, a German journalist accompanying Scholz, told China News Network that compared to 36 years ago when he first came to China as a student, there have been overwhelming changes here, leaving him deeply impressed. 

“It’s overwhelming whenever I come today, how cities like Chongqing, which I saw 36 years ago have changed, how the country is growing, how the economy is growing, how everything is getting enormously modern. So every German Chancellor is really impressed by the development China made and has been making in the past years,” he said.
