Lancang-Mekong cooperation is a new practice for South-South cooperation, Premier Li Keqiang said at the first Lancang-Mekong cooperation leaders’ meeting in Sanya, Hainan province, on March 23.
The name “Sanya” means the junction of three rivers. In addition, “Sanya” in Southeast Asian countries means agreement and consensus. This shows that we are willing to make joint efforts to create a bright future for the region, Premier Li said.
For Lancang-Mekong cooperation, Premier Li quoted a Southeast Asian proverb to express his wishes: When gentle breezes stick together, they can have the power of a typhoon.
