(CNN) - This week the European Union Chamber of Commerce released this survey on Chinese investor perceptions of Europe.

The study, which drew responses from 74 Chinese enterprises that have already invested in the EU, found that a full 97% would make future investments in the region; however 78% of those surveyed said they faced operational difficulties, mostly related to bureaucracy and high costs.

Pauline Chiou, CNN’s World Business Today anchor, spoke with Davide Cucino for his own reflections on the survey. The President of the European Union Chamber of Commerce said a transparent regulatory framework, good opportunities for merger and acquisition operations and a large market of 500 million potential consumers makes Europe an “ideal place to do business”.

While China demands more than a 50% stake in any Western company that sets up operations in Asia’s largest economy, the EU’s Cucino says the business environment of Europe will be “resiliently open”.

    I come here almost every day to read the news like probably most people here do that I don't have anywhere else to tell anybody so I thought I'd tell somebody here because I'm so excited about what I've found. Google "Traders Superstore" these guys are really helping people learn how to trade, I never traded before in my life and now I'm making money doing and having a great time I can't believe how much money you can actually make trading like this it's amazing!

    [Roman Empire & Han Empire]

    In 97 AD the Western Area Governor of the Han Empire had sent ambassadors to visit the Roman Empire, but the mission had not been completed. According to Hou Han Shu (History of Later Han Empire) – In 166 AD Roman Emperor Antonius Pius (reign 138 AD -161 AD) sent a mission to arrive at China by South China Sea; then went to the capital of the Han Empire for presenting tributes.

    The book also doubted it might be not a formal official mission from the Roman Empire. It might be pretend mission by merchants or from east province official of the Roman Empire, because these tributes are not very special.

    [Sino-Europe trade has long history]

    The Han Empire could be a bigger economy and military than the Roam Empire between 206 BC and 220 AD. Great Wall of China and Terracotta soldiers are evidences, China also has significant paper-making technology; moreover China's silk cloth has exported to Europe for 1500 years.

    It might beyond many scholars' thinking. Perhaps it would be understood only after 2029, (maybe I would publish a work to prove it). However China and Europe has long term trade history; and future trade should be greater.
