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

On March 28, the press brief­ing for the 11th China- LAC Busi­ness Sum­mit was held in the pres­i­den­tial palace in Uruguay. Raúl Fer­nando Sen­dic Ro­dríguez, Vice Pres­i­dent of Uruguay, Rodolfo Nin Novoa, Min­is­ter of For­eign Re­la­tions of Uruguay, Dong Xiao­jun, Chi­nese am­bas­sador to Uruguay and Lei Hong, Deputy Direc­tor- Gen­eral of CCPIT Depart­ment of In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions at­tended the event. Nearly 20 in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic me­dia were also in at­ten­dance.

Sen­dic said it is a great honor that Uruguay was host­ing the 11th Chi­naLAC Busi­ness Sum­mit. The Uruguayan govern­ment is fully sup­port­ive of the event and en­deav­ors to ex­pand co­op­er­a­tion with China on this oc­ca­sion. The sum­mit will be a new chapter for Sino-latin Amer­i­can co­op­er­a­tion.

Novoa said that China is the largest trade part­ner of Uruguay. It is of great sig­nif­i­cance for his coun­try to host the sum­mit. He hopes that Uruguay could be a gate­way for Chi­nese en­ter­prises in the ac­cess to Latin Amer­i­can mar­ket. ex­changed ideas about the CCPIT-ACBC co­op­er­a­tion and the pro­mo­tion of the de­vel­op­ment of Sino-aus­tralian trade re­la­tions.

The just- con­cluded Aus­tralia- China Eco­nomic and Trade Co­op­er­a­tion Fo­rum achieved suc­cess, Jiang said. Lead­ers of both coun­tries de­liv­ered key­note speeches, which has shown both sides at­tach im­por­tance to Sino-aus­tralia trade co­op­er­a­tion and new co­op­er­a­tion po­ten­tials be­tween the CCPIT and ACBC.

Jiang con­veyed his grat­i­tude to Pres­i­dent Brumby for his well- or­ga­nized fo­rum. Jiang added that the CCPIT and ACBC have, for a long time, main­tained friendly and close co­op­er­a­tion re­la­tions. The two in­sti­tu­tions jointly hosted eco­nomic and trade ex­change events on im­por­tant oc­ca­sions for a num­ber of times, which has contributed to fur­ther­ing Sino-aus­tralian eco­nomic and trade ties.

Sca­nia AB, Miche­lin, etc. at­tended the meet­ing. The ma­jor topic for dis­cus­sion was the re­quests of Euro­pean en­ter­prises for the fur­ther im­prove­ment of China’s in­vest­ment en­vi­ron­ment, fol­low­ing the “No­tice Con­cern­ing Sev­eral Mea­sures for Ex­pand­ing Open­ing-up and Ac­tively Uti­liz­ing For­eign Cap­i­tal” (here­inafter as the “No­tice”) and re­vised “Cat­a­logue of In­dus­tries for Guid­ing For­eign In­vest­ment”. CCPIT Vice Chair­man Wang Jinzhen and EUCCC Vice Pres­i­dent Ber­trand de la Noue were in at­ten­dance.

Wang Jinzhen said, in the Re­port on the Work of the Govern­ment at the Fourth Ses­sion of the Twelfth Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress in 2016, that the Chi­nese Pre­mier Li Ke­qiang promised that China’s in­vest­ment en­vi­ron­ment will be­come even more fair, trans­par­ent, and pre­dictable. The no­tice in­di­cates that China is de­ter­mined to fur­ther ex­pand open­ing-up and in­ten­sify re­form to stream­line ad­min­is­tra­tion, del­e­gate more pow­ers, im­prove reg­u­la­tion and pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices.
