Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping’s adv ocacy of a com­mu­nity with a shared fu­ture for mankind, an open econ­omy, glob­al­iza­tion and fight­ing pro­tec­tion­ism and iso­la­tion­ism has been widely wel­comed and China has been trans­form­ing the pro­pos­als into ac­tion, said a se­nior Chi­nese of­fi­cial at­tend­ing the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum on Wed­nes­day.

Liu He, a mem­ber of Po­lit­i­cal Bu­reau of the Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, ad­dressed the four-day an­nual meet­ing, which ends on Fri­day. Last year, Xi made speeches that were con­sid­ered his­toric in Davos and Geneva.

“Pres­i­dent Xi came here last year and de­liv­ered a speech en­ti­tled Jointly Shoul­der Re­spon­si­bil­ity of Our Times, Pro­mote Global Growth, in which he ex­pounded on China’s firm sup­port for eco­nomic glob­al­iza­tion,” said Liu, a top eco­nomic pol­icy ad­viser as head of the Gen­eral Of­fice of the Cen­tral Leading Group for Fi­nan­cial and Eco­nomic Af­fairs, re­spon­si­ble for map­ping the coun­try’s eco­nomic poli­cies. “That speech was warmly re­ceived by the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity.”

Liu said that in line with Xi’s propo­si­tions in Davos, China has stood firm against all forms of pro­tec­tion­ism in the past year.

He said China has strength­ened protection of in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights,
