The Second China International Import Expo Opens

Chinese President xi jinping delivered a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the 2nd China international import expo in Shanghai on Friday.

'standing at a new historical starting point, China's door will only open wider,' Mr. Xi said. He proposed five measures for further opening up.

First, continue to open up the market. With a population of nearly 1.4 billion and the largest middle-income group in the world, China has a huge market with enormous potential and unlimited prospects. The Chinese people have a saying: "the world is so big that I want to see it". Here I would like to say that the Chinese market is so big that you are welcome to have a look.

Second, continue to improve the pattern of opening up. China's opening to the outside world is all-dimensional and all-inclusive.

Third, continue to improve the business environment. Business environment is the soil for the survival and development of enterprises. In the future, China will continue to speed up reform in key links and key areas to address the serious problems constraining economic development, and modernize its governance system and capacity to provide institutional guarantees for high-level, open and high-quality development.

Fourth, continue to deepen multilateral cooperation. China supports the necessary reform of the world trade organization. China is ready to conclude high-standard free trade agreements with more countries.

Fifth, continue to build the One Belt And One Road. So far, China has signed 197 cooperation documents with 137 countries and 30 international organizations. China will adhere to the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and Shared benefits, adhere to the concept of openness, green and integrity, strive to achieve high standards, benefit the people and sustainable goals, and promote high-quality development of joint contribution.
