David Gosset, senior consultant at emlyon Asia and founder of Europe-China Forum, voiced his backing on China Daily on several occasions. On 9 February, Gosset released a video clip, cheering up Chinese people against the pandemic amid their close ties with the world. He also stated that the coronavirus would not disrupt China’s renaissance as the country had been accumulating resources as a real power since it embarked on its own road decades ago. On 18 February, Gosset toughly warned not to instrumentalize the outbreak for political purposes, calling the international community to learn from the epidemic and fight against the virus together. He further analyzed the relationship between China and the EU, drawing a conclusion that the coronavirus epidemic had not affected the partnership between the EU and China but had given rise to concrete solidarity.
