Currently, Czech Republic is the second largest trade partner of China in the Middle-East Europe. The two countries established diplomatic relationship with each other on 6th October, 1949, and China recognised Czech Republic and established the diplomatic relationship immediately after Czech Republic became an independent sovereignty state. The two countries agreed that they would continue to use the old Establishment Day of former Czechoslovakia as the Establishment Day with Czech Republic. As Yingke Czech was established in the same day in 2015, this means a lot.
