Chinese President Xi Jinping promoted to build an open economy, speed up regional integration, and enhance interconnectivity at the just-concluded Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Manila, the Philippines.
What Xi called up at the APEC meeting aroused interest among scholars in Singapore, and they believed that China’s inclusiveness promotes the Asia-Pacific integration.
Irene Chan, associate research fellow with S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies of Nanyang Technological University, said the reiteration of China’s commitment to do its part in promoting economic integration within Asia-Pacific by making efforts domestically and externally in President Xi’s speech gave her deep impression.
“Xi’s suggestions are important follow-up to the APEC Connectivity Blueprint that was signed at the 22nd APEC Summit in Beijing in 2014, particularly the suggestion on persevering in the implementation of the development agenda.” said Chan.
