|Li Keqiang Meets with Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab|
On the evening of July 19, 2022, Premier Li Keqiang met with Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Klaus Schwab at the Great Hall of the People via video link.
Li Keqiang said that China's cooperation with the WEF has gone through over 40 years, almost keeping pace with China's reform and opening-up process. At present, global development is facing many uncertain and unstable factors, but world peace and development and contacts and exchanges among all countries are desired by all the people around the world, and such a popular trend cannot be reversed. Twists and setbacks cannot stop the pace of progress of human civilization and history. The international community needs to firm up confidence, maintain peace and stability, strengthen dialogue and communication, and jointly tackle challenges. China commends that the WEF has always focused on economic development and strengthened cooperation with China, and deepening cooperation between the two sides is conducive to sending a positive signal of developing the economy and improving people's livelihood to the world.
Li Keqiang pointed out that no matter how the international landscape may change, China will unswervingly stay committed to the fundamental state policy of opening-up, and is willing to strengthen dialogue and communication with all other parties to create conditions for mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation.
Klaus Schwab said that the WEF has maintained a good partnership with China over the past 40 years. In today's world facing multiple crises and challenges, the WEF is willing to deepen cooperation with China, promote global dialogue, give full play to the role of the business community, strengthen international and regional exchanges and cooperation, and play an active role in addressing climate change, promoting industrial transformation and social equity.
