Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the meeting and remarked on economic globalization at the meeting. He addressed that the globalization has contributed substantially to the global growth for decades and is now irreversible. He said innovation is the most important driving force to promote economic development and an open economy can benefit the global development, especially the free trade communication among Asian-Pacific areas. Xi also emphasized the inclusive and balanced economic cooperation, the peaceful development and shared future.


With China’s economy rising and foreign policy clear, China is playing a leading role as the world’s second largest economy. We believe that the Belt and Road Initiative would create a broader and more dynamic platform for Asia-Pacific cooperation and contribute more to the global development.
