On September 8, 2022, the Third China Arab Countries Reform and Development Forum was successfully held, focusing on "China Arab countries work together to promote global development initiatives", and reached a number of consensus. In order to further consolidate China Arab consensus on promoting the implementation of the initiative and enhancing common development, the China Arab Reform and Development Research Center and the Saudi Research and Knowledge Exchange Center jointly compiled and published the results of the meeting. The anthology includes 24 excellent speeches by Chinese and Arab guests, which were officially published by Saudi Arabia in both Chinese and Arab languages. At present, the books are on the official websites of two think tanks.

Li Chen announced the official release of the "China Arab Joint Promotion of Global Development Initiative - Compilation of the Third China Arab Reform and Development Forum". He said that at the Third China Arab States Reform and Development Forum, the participants had in-depth exchanges on how to promote the implementation of the global development initiative and put forward many useful measures and suggestions. The release of the anthology is a new achievement of China Arab experience exchange in governance, a new contribution of think tanks from both sides to the implementation of global development initiatives and strengthening development cooperation, and an addition to China Arab relations.

Li Yansong said in his speech that the collection gathered the consensus of China and Arab countries to jointly promote global development initiatives and promote common development, and provided valuable intellectual support for China and Arab countries to enhance mutual understanding. We look forward to further strengthening cooperation between the two think tanks in the future and contributing more intellectual support to the common development of China and Argentina.

Ye Haiya pointed out that this conference is a continuation of the activities of both sides and a result of cooperation with the Center. In the future, the two sides will further strengthen cooperation in the translation of ancient books and promote people to people exchanges between China and Saudi Arabia. At the same time, we will keep close contact with the Center, continue to launch more similar cooperation results, and hope that the relationship between the two peoples will become better and better.

In his congratulatory speech, Halby said that this event is a demonstration of the important achievements of Arab Chinese cooperation and plays an important role in promoting the development of Arab Chinese bilateral relations. Arab Chinese relations have a long history, have developed well in various fields, and political mutual trust is growing. Saudi Arabia and China will jointly implement Saudi Arabia's "Vision 2030" and China's "the Belt and Road" initiative, hoping to achieve more cooperation results in the future.

The collection gathered the wisdom of experts and scholars from China and Arab countries. The scholars expressed their insightful views on promoting the development of China Arab strategic partnership and expanding China Arab cooperation in various fields under the framework of the Global Development Initiative. It is hoped that in the future, China Arab cooperation in various fields will continue to deepen and become more practical, so as to achieve mutual benefit, win-win results and common development.Editor/XingWentao
