In the afternoon of March 26th, Premier Li Keqiang spoke to the foreign representative who attended the 2018 meeting of the China Development Forum.
Morris Greenbergssage, chairman and CEO of American investment group, said: "some people say that China and the US are sitting down now. Is there any progress? Can you make some comments? "
Li Keqiang said that in the recent period, there is no doubt that China and the United States trade disputes and even trade war. I am particularly stressed here that there will be no winner in trade war. Not only is it bad for both sides, but also is not conducive to the world.
He stressed that the current world economic recovery is on the rise. The whole world should make joint efforts to promote the recovery of international trade and further promote the recovery of world economy. To achieve this, we must adhere to the multilateralism trade rules and oppose trade protectionism, so that we can share the benefits of world economic development.
Li Keqiang said that trade is a bargaining process, and trade frictions are inevitable. Especially the trade scale between China and the United States has reached 580 billion dollars last year.
"What I want to emphasize is that such a high amount of trade is not based on the power of the government, but more on the multilateral trade rules and market forces." "There is trade frictions," Li Keqiang said. "The government should keep it rational and solve it through negotiation and business rules. I believe that both China and the United States have the wisdom to solve this problem. "
Li Keqiang said that China and the United States have seen such a storm in the field of trade and economy in the past few decades, but the trade volume has been increasing. "We hope to boost the trade balance between China and the United States by making big increments. Because the door closed to others blocked his own way. " He said.
He stressed that China has never pursued a trade surplus for any country, because it is difficult to continue. The Chinese side hopes to continue to communicate with the United States and properly solve the trade frictions between each other. The final result is to make both sides benefit.
Li Keqiang finally reiterated: "the opening door of China's opening to the outside world will be more open and bigger, and it is hoped that the US enterprises will continue to invest more in China."
