Q: China just announced that President Xi Jinping will travel to San Francisco for a China-U.S. summit meeting with President Joe Biden. It will be the first face-to-face meeting between the two Presidents since their Bali meeting last year and is highly anticipated internationally. What’s China’s expectation for this meeting?

A: At the invitation of U.S. President Joe Biden, President Xi Jinping will travel to the U.S. for a China-U.S. summit meeting and the 30th APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting. The two Presidents will have in-depth communication on issues of strategic, overarching and fundamental importance in shaping China-U.S. relations and major issues concerning world peace and development.

Q: President Xi Jinping will attend the 30th APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting next week. What’s China’s expectation for this meeting?

A: On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of APEC’s first leaders’ meeting, President Xi Jinping’s trip to APEC upon invitation reflects the great importance China attaches to Asia-Pacific economic cooperation.

With mounting factors of instability and uncertainty in the world economy, there is a widely shared expectation for the Asia-Pacific to remain an economic engine to lead global growth. APEC is a key platform for economic cooperation in the Asia-Pacific. President Xi Jinping will deliver an important speech at the meeting to fully elaborate on China’s major propositions on deepening Asia-Pacific cooperation and driving regional and global growth. We hope that all parties will remember what brought countries and regions in the Asia-Pacific together in the first place, focus on the region’s urgent needs, deepen solidarity and cooperation, deliver on the APEC Putrajaya Vision 2040 in an all-round and balanced way, and work for positive outcomes at the meeting, so as to provide new growth impetus for the Asia-Pacific and the wider world and jointly build an Asia-Pacific community with a shared future.
