Vice President Wang Qishan delivered a video speech at the High-level Meeting of the “One Ocean” Summit on February 11.
Wang shared his conviction that the ocean provides an important basis for humanity to survive and thrive, and the Maritime Silk Road presents a vivid portrayal of interaction, integration, and mutually beneficial cooperation through the ocean among people of all nations along the route. Taking inspiration from history, President Xi Jinping put forward the initiatives of building a maritime community with a shared future and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. China is ready to actively synergize these initiatives with the “international maritime community” proposed by France and other bilateral and multilateral initiatives to increase their positive effects.
Wang said that China has always been a promoter of sustainable marine development, a builder of global marine governance, and a defender of international maritime order, and will work with other countries to build an ocean of peace, cooperation, and beauty.
The “One Ocean” Summit was hosted by France which holds the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union. The High-level Meeting of the Summit was held in Brest, France, and chaired by French President Emmanuel Macron.
