China's Foreign Trade (English) - - Briefing -

2016 Boao Fo­rum for Asia ( BFA) was suc­cess­fully held in South China’s Hainan Prov­ince. Premier Li Ke­qiang has de­liv­ered a key­note speech at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the 2016 an­nual con­fer­ence.

The theme for this year’s con­fer­ence is “Asia’s New Fu­ture: New Dy­nam­ics and New Vi­sion”. Li said, though the im­pacts from the 2008 fi­nan­cial cri­sis have not been elim­i­nated, China and Asia can find eco­nomic dy­nam­ics to em­brace a bright fu­ture of their own.

This year’s Boao fo­rum is aimed at bring­ing re­newed vi­tal­ity to Asian economies, which have re­cently suf­fered from eco­nomic slow­downs and un­der­gone struc­tural re­forms.

But as Li stressed in his speech, he be­lieves that the Asian econ­omy still has a bright fu­ture,and the key to the suc­cess is re­gional co­op­er­a­tion.

“Asia is an im­por­tant force for world peace and de­vel­op­ment. It is also an im­por­tant en­gine for eco­nomic growth and an im­por­tant con­trib­u­tor to the progress of the world’s civ­i­liza­tion. Asian coun­tries must have firm con­fi­dence and work to­gether with sol­i­dar­ity. We will over­come tem­po­rary dif­fi­cul­ties and em­brace a bright fu­ture,” Li said.
