BEIJING, May 19 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang sent a congratulatory letter on Tuesday to the opening ceremony of U.S. industrial conglomerate Honeywell's emerging market headquarters and innovation center in central China's Wuhan City.
Praising the company's efforts in building long-term cooperation and achieving common development with China, Li said he expected the headquarters and the center to develop and produce more high-quality products that are intelligent, safe and oriented toward consumer demand to improve people's livelihood worldwide and facilitate social development.
In the face of the economic downward pressure at home and abroad, China's commitment to deepening reform and opening-up and welcoming overseas enterprises to expand investment and cooperation with China will remain unchanged, the premier said in the letter.
Li pledged continuous efforts to create a market-oriented, law-based and globalized business environment where companies of different ownerships, domestic or foreign, are treated as equals.
He welcomed enterprises from all over the world to seize the opportunities in China and better achieve win-win results.
Currently, Honeywell has over 50 wholly-owned enterprises and joint ventures in more than 30 cities across China, including 21 plants.
