Wang Qishan Delivers a Speech at the High-level Meeting of the “One Ocean” Summit


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.
