The core of planning is to promote scientific development, accelerate the transformation of economic development, the development of efforts to solve unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable problems and maintain long-term stable and rapid economic development, improving people’s livelihood and promote social harmony and stability.
expanding domestic demand is the development of China’s long-term strategy and the basic starting point. China is the world’s most populous developing country in the industrialization and urbanization, a period of rapid progress, domestic demand potential. We will insist on further opening the same time, efforts to expand domestic demand, especially consumer demand, the establishment of long-term mechanism to stimulate the inherent vitality of room for expansion, the huge consumer potential into the endogenous development of power, and gradually make the Chinese domestic overall size of largest in the world market.
western development strategy in China’s overall regional development is a priority position. Over the past 11 years, made significant achievements in developing the western region. Current and future periods, we will further implement the western development strategy, the western region’s economic and social development to a new level. Xinjiang is the focus of the western development region, the Chinese government has formulated and is implementing a series of preferential policies to support the development of Xinjiang, such as increase security and improve the livelihood of transfer payments, increased infrastructure and ecological environmental protection of capital investment, support the development of advantageous resources transformation, the implementation of differentiated industrial policies, preferential tax policies, sloping land policy, to further strengthen the counterpart support work to enhance the capacity of self-development in Xinjiang, Xinjiang, leapfrog development and promote long-term stability.
west China’s opening-round opening up a major move. Opening up of China’s basic national policy of long-term adherence. The future, we will adhere to promoting reform and promote development, enhance the coastal open in the east, while open standards, expanding inland and opening-up an open border, west to encourage open. Xinjiang is the new Eurasian Continental Bridge an important hub for the expansion of open Xinjiang, the Chinese government launched a number of initiatives, including: in Kashgar, Horgos the establishment of special economic development zone, the rational distribution of industry agglomeration park in Xinjiang, to expand the existing port function and the addition of a new port, to take tax, financial and other measures to support the development of border trade, cross-border trade and investment RMB pilot and so on. Our goal is to give full play to open the bridgehead west Xinjiang, the role of the opening of Xinjiang into an important gateway and base. This is conducive to China’s opening up and development of inland and western regions, will also give new impetus to cooperation between Asia and Europe. Through play China – Asia-Europe Expo, a platform between China and Central Asia, West Asia, South Asia and Europe economic and trade exchanges and cooperation in various fields will make new and greater progress.
ladies and gentlemen!
adjust the current world, the pace of change continues to accelerate a large, deep impact global financial crisis continues, the recent international financial market turmoil, the world economic recovery, uncertainty, instability increases. Asia and Europe is an important force for world economic development, deepen pragmatic cooperation in Asian and European countries and regions, not only each other’s needs, but also the world’s development needs, and promoting Asia-Europe and the world economy is strong, sustainable and balanced growth. We should be more long-term perspective, a more open mind, explore new ideas, innovative mechanisms to jointly promote the development of Asia-Europe cooperation to achieve a new leap. Here, I focus on three recommendations from:
First, deepen pragmatic cooperation in trade and investment. Trade and investment are important drivers of economic growth, expanding trade and investment cooperation between Asia and Europe countries have great potential. The countries concerned should further expand market access, increase policy transparency, improve legal protection to strengthen the convergence of technical standards, improvement of customs clearance conditions, to create a more stable, transparent and predictable market environment, against any form of protectionism and promote trade and investment liberalization and facilitation. Promote the International Border Cooperation Center Khorgos construction and development, trade and economic cooperation of neighboring countries to explore a new model. Improve the regional, sub-regional cooperation mechanisms to speed up regional economic integration process. Strengthening of national science and technology, education, human resources development cooperation, joint efforts to eradicate poverty, increase employment, protect health and prevent and withstand natural disasters.
Second, to promote infrastructure interoperability. Deep inland in many Asian and European countries, to improve infrastructure is essential for expanding economic cooperation. The countries concerned should strengthen planning and coordination, promoting major infrastructure networks, focus on strengthening the regional road, railway, civil aviation, pipeline, construction of communication networks and other cooperation. China will work with relevant parties to fully exploit the new Eurasian Continental Bridge transport potential, and actively promote cross-channel construction, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization signed the Agreement on Facilitation of International Road Transport. The Chinese government will continue to provide preferential loans to the countries, support for transportation and communication infrastructure.
Third, to enhance mutually beneficial cooperation between industry and enterprise level. Asian and European economies are highly complementary, industry and business cooperation has broad prospects. Countries should continue to strengthen policy support and guidance, to provide efficient and transparent administrative services, to create safe and stable environment for development and create conditions for the development of business cooperation. Deepen cooperation in energy resources development, the resource advantages into economic advantages. Actively develop agriculture and animal husbandry, tourism, manufacturing, environmental protection and other areas of cooperation, cooperation in the field of mining of non-resource development potential. Economic cooperation needs smooth flow of funds, the landlocked countries and the current financial cooperation between Asia and Europe still weak and needs further strengthening. Cooperation in promoting the development of the large enterprises, small and medium enterprises should increase the exchange of attention and support, better play all types of enterprises in the growth, employment, innovation and international cooperation in the dynamic role.
ladies and gentlemen!
win-win cooperation in line with the fundamental interests of Asian and European countries, is the common aspiration of people of Asian and European countries. Let us join hands to develop forward for the economic opening up and development of inland Asia and Europe to create a new situation for the sustainable development of Asia and Europe, to make greater contributions to world progress and prosperity.
Finally, I wish China’s first – and the first Asia-Europe Expo China – ASEM Economic Development Cooperation Forum a complete success! I wish the distinguished guests good health and success! Thank you.
