One of the highlights was President Xi Jinping’s keynote speech, in which he put great emphasis on continuing economic globalization and furthering China’s importation of foreign goods.
“China will firmly share market opportunities with the rest of the world. China has a population of over 1.4 billion and a middle-income group of more than 400 million people. Our annual import in goods and services is valued at around $2.5 trillion. All this offers an enormous market. Going forward, China will lay more emphasis on expanding import, and pursue balanced development of trade.”
“For a boat to sail upstream, it has to forge ahead or be driven backward. We must stay on top of the prevailing trend of economic globalization, and support countries around the world in opening up wider while rejecting unilateralism and protectionism.”
Sinowei will continue building trade relations between China and European companies, as well as aiding a deeper understanding of this monumental market.
