|Wang Yi: China's Development is an Important Opportunity for Asia|
On the evening of October 29, 2018, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met in Beijing with diplomatic envoys of the ten countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in China.
Wang Yi expressed, China's development means greater strength for Asia, emerging economies, developing countries and also the peaceful force in the world. China's path is completely different from that of traditional major countries. We pursue our own peaceful development and adhere to work with other countries for mutual benefit and win-win results. China's development is an opportunity for the world. As a Chinese proverb says, "One gets a better view of the moon-rise on the lake from a waterfront location." By the same token, we believe that China's development will bring important opportunities for its neighboring countries in Asia first.
