Chinese President Xi Jinping has said that amid an unusual time in history for humanity due to Covid-19 pandemic, meeting challenges through cooperation is the only way forward for the international community.
Delivering his keynote speech at APEC CEO Dialogues titled “Fostering a New Development Paradigm and Pursuing Mutual Benefit and Win-win Cooperation”, the Chinese president said pandemic once again shows that the interests of all countries are closely interwoven and that humankind shares a common stake. “Indeed, our world is an indivisible community with a shared future. To beat the virus and promote global recovery, we in the international community must close ranks and jointly respond to this crisis and meet the test,” he said. “All countries should act in the spirit of partnership and get through this tough time together. We need to step up policy communication and coordination, intensify all-round global cooperation against Covid-19 and keep global economy open,” he added.
