Li Qiang said that in the past few years, the once-in-a-century epidemic, exacerbated by a transformation not seen in a century, has brought great changes to our world. Having faced barriers, both visible and invisible, we must all cherish communication and exchange. Different countries, ethnic groups and civilizations need to deepen mutual understanding and enhance dialogue to bridge differences and expand common ground. Having witnessed the shocks of global crises, we should all cherish solidarity and cooperation, embrace the concept of win-win cooperation, and work together to confront these global challenges and promote human progress. Having witnessed the rise and fall of economic globalization, we should all cherish openness and sharing more, continue our efforts to build an open world economy, and deliver the fruits of globalization to different countries and groups of people in a more equitable way. Having witnessed the anxiety caused by conflicts and turmoil, we should all cherish peace and stability.

Li Qiang pointed out that what is lacking in today’s world is communication, not estrangement; Cooperation, not confrontation; Openness, not isolation; Peace, not conflict. We must work in accordance with the vision of a community with a shared future for mankind put forward by President Xi Jinping, and jointly implement the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative. We must move forward by following the logic of historical progress, develop by riding the tide of our times, and work hard to build a better world.

Li Qiang said that over the past decade, China has been an important source of driving force for the steady growth of the global economy and served as an important anchor for free trade and stable growth in the world. In the longer future, China will continue to provide strong dynamics for global economic recovery and growth, and provide win-win cooperation opportunities for investors from all countries.

Li Qiang stressed that the theme of this year’s annual meeting “Entrepreneurship: The Driving Force of the Global Economy” could not be more appropriate. China is willing to work with entrepreneurs from all countries to vigorously support economic globalization, vigorously support the market economy, vigorously support free trade, and guide the global economy towards a more inclusive, resilient and sustainable future.
