|Wang Yi Attends Symposium on International Developments and China's Diplomacy|
On December 9, 2017, Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the Symposium on International Developments and China’s Diplomacy in 2017 hosted by China Institute of International Studies and China Foundation for International Studies and delivered a speech.
Wang Yi expressed that under the strong leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), China’s diplomacy has further forged ahead and drawn up the blueprint for jointly undertaking the Belt and Road Initiative. China has been a strong advocate of economic globalization and an anchor for stable relations among major countries. China has also worked to maintain stability in the neighborhood and the sound momentum of regional cooperation and ushered in the second "Golden Decade" of BRICS cooperation.
Wang Yi pointed out that the year 2018 will go down as the year for the beginning of the implementation of the decisions taken at the 19th CPC National Congress. China's foreign policy will gain a new outlook, make new accomplishments and take new responsibilities under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core. China's network of global partnerships will be expanded and a new form of international relations will be promoted. China will start from the neighborhood and other developing countries in building a community with a shared future for mankind. The Belt and Road Initiative will be comprehensively advanced to benefit all other participating countries through win-win cooperation. China will actively explore a way of resolving hotspot issues with Chinese characteristics and play a bigger and more constructive role in upholding world stability. China will step up efforts to serve domestic development and overseas interests in line with our national conditions and the needs of our people and continuously break new ground in diplomacy with Chinese characteristics.
