China Today (English) - - CHINA WATCH -

Dur­ing his state vis­its to Ecuador, Peru, and Chile from Novem­ber 1 7 t o 23, Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping called on China and Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries to strengthen di­a­logue on global is­sues and boost co­op­er­a­tion on do­mes­tic de­vel­op­ment, in a bid to bet­ter build their com­mu­nity of com­mon destiny at a new start­ing point in his­tory.

Xi pro­posed that China and Latin Amer­ica and the Caribbean hold high the ban­ner of peace­ful de­vel­op­ment and co­op­er­a­tion, seek syn­ergy be­tween their de­vel­op­ment strate­gies, speed up and up­grade prac­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion, and bring ben­e­fits to both peo­ples.

The pres­i­dent also took part in the 24th Asia Pa­cific Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion (APEC) Eco­nomic Lead­ers’ Meet­ing in Peru. He high­lighted APEC’s role as a pi­o­neer, leader, and trail­blazer of eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion in the Asia-Pa­cific and the world at large, and called on APEC mem­bers to lever­age the Asi­aPa­cific’s role as a growth en­gine and work to­wards an in­no­va­tive, in­vig­o­rated, in­ter­con­nected, and in­clu­sive world econ­omy. At the high-level gath­er­ing of APEC eco­nomic lead­ers, Xi urged the APEC economies to stay com­mit­ted to ad­vanc­ing eco­nomic glob­al­iza­tion, in­creas­ing open­ness in the Asia-Pa­cific econ­omy, break­ing bot­tle­necks in re­gional con­nec­tiv­ity, and blaz­ing new trails in re­form and in­no­va­tion.

The APEC eco­nomic lead­ers agreed to build an open econ­omy in the re­gion, op­pose pro­tec­tion­ism, ad­vance the pro­cess of Free Trade Area of the Asi­aPa­cific, and boost con­nec­tiv­ity, thus adding new im­pe­tus to Asia-Pa­cific and global growth. They also agreed that the out­comes of the pre­vi­ous meet­ings should be earnestly im­ple­mented and fu­ture co­op­er­a­tion well planned for the sake of long-term pros­per­ity in the Asia-Pa­cific.
