On the afternoon of July 1, 2019, Premier Li Keqiang met in Dalian with Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Klaus Schwab.
Li Keqiang expressed that cooperation between China and the WEF started almost at the same time as China's reform and opening up. The two sides' fruitful and effective cooperation has not only boosted China's reform and opening up endeavor but also provided an important platform for discussing world economic governance. The Chinese side stands ready to deepen its partnership with the WEF and expand cooperation on various platforms. Li Keqiang also called for grasping the opportunity of the new round of industrial revolution and keeping improving the Summer Davos Forum to explore new frontiers for new champions of the world, jointly safeguard multilateralism and free trade and maintain an open and inclusive world economy system.
Klaus Schwab hailed the sound cooperation between the WEF and China in the past 40 years and thanked the Chinese side for its strong support. The WEF is committed to achieving the goal of sustainable development and attaches great importance to cooperation with the Chinese side. The WEF is willing to work with the Chinese side to jointly advance bilateral cooperation to new levels, so as to better serve China's development.
