On November 5th, China International Import Expo, CIIE opening ceremony was held in Shanghai. Xi Jinping delivered a keynote speech at the opening ceremony.
To use a metaphor, the Chinese economy is not a pond but an ocean. The ocean may have its calm days, but big winds and storms are only to be expected. Without them, the ocean wouldn't be what it is. Big winds and storms may upset a pond, but never an ocean.
After going through 5,000 years of trials and tribulations, China is still here. Looking ahead, China will always be here to stay.
We will promote international cooperation at multilateral and bilateral levels.
The CIIE is the first import expo held at the national level. This is indeed an innovation in the history of global trade.
China will not stop its effort to pursue higher quality opening-up.
