China ready to work with Tonga and other countries to promote global development

China is ready to make joint efforts with Tonga to strengthen co-operation and develop the Strategic Partnership of Mutual Respect and Common Development between the two countries.

Kaniva News reports, the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to the Kingdom of Tonga H.E. Huang Huaguang, said globalisation had unavoidably had a certain impact on Tonga’s economy, but also created more opportunities for Tonga to interact with the world.

He described Tonga as an important member of the Asia-Pacific family. In recent years, China has carried out friendly co-operation in various fields with Tonga and other countries in South Pacific, which has boosted the social and economic development of these countries.

The ambassador said the international political and economic situation was intricate and complicated.

“Global challenges like terrorism, refugee and climate change emerged one after another,” Ambassador Huang said.

“Britain has voted to leave the European Union. There have been voices questioning or even opposing economic globalisation in the developed economies in Europe and America.

“Isolationism and trade protectionism are obviously increasing all over the world. The trends of globalisation and mankind’s future have become the universal concern of the international community.”

He said it was against this background, the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2017 was held in Davos of Switzerland on January 17 under the theme of responsive and responsible leadership.

Chinese President Xi Jinping was invited to attend and made a keynote speech ‘Jointly shoulder responsibilities of our times, promote global Growth.’

This was the first time that China’s top leader had attended the annual meeting. President Xi also attended the high-level meeting of the theme of ‘Jointly building a community of shared future for mankind through Consultation’ in Geneva on January 18 and gave an important speech: ‘Work together to build a community of shared future for Mankind.’ In his speeches, the President expounded China’s vision and proposals on the economic globalisation, international governance and mankind’s future.
