Twists and turns and setbacks can't stop the progress of human civilization and history. The international community needs to strengthen confidence, maintain peace and stability, strengthen dialogue and communication, and work together to meet challenges. China appreciates that the Forum has always focused on economic development and strengthened cooperation with China. Deepening cooperation between the two sides is conducive to sending a positive signal to the world to develop the economy and improve people's livelihood.
