Singapore-based Lianhe Zaobao and The Straits Times published an article by Premier Li Keqiang as he visits Singapore from Nov 12 to 16. The article is titled “Creating a better tomorrow with openness, cooperation and innovation”.
Premier Li wrote that openness is a decisive factor in the development of both China and Singapore.
“Faced with the challenges of rising protectionism and unilateralism, we need to join hands to send a positive message of upholding the World Trade Organization-centered multilateral trading system and advancing trade and investment liberalization and facilitation. Together, we should work for an open world economy by advocating, practicing and upholding openness,” the Premier wrote.
“We welcome Singapore’s efforts to seize opportunities created by China’s new round of opening-up, working with us in elevating bilateral cooperation... and create an even brighter future for China-Singapore relations and China-ASEAN cooperation.”
