Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan will visit Switzerland and attend the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos from Jan. 21 to 24. During the forum, he will give a speech, meet with Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab and exchange views with those attending the meeting, China's Foreign Ministry (MFA) said on Monday.
"China's economy has on the whole maintained stable performance and is making progress. Despite some external uncertainties and unstable factors, the positive momentum of China's economy over the long run will remain unchanged, as China enjoys 'enough resilience and great potential' for its development. We are strongly confident about the positive momentum of China's economic fundamentals over the long run, as well as achieving the goal of maintaining a medium-high rate of growth while advancing toward a medium-high level of development," said Lu Kang, the spokesperson for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
Wang will explain China's views and opinions on major international issues such as China's development and economic globalization. We welcome all parties to join hands with China to make a positive contribution to building an open world economy and promoting the common development of human society, Lu said.
