Many experts believe that in the face of a divided world, China has always played a stabilizing role and is an important driving force for global economic recovery.

The President of the World Economic Forum, Borg Brend, said that countries should try again to find areas of cooperation rather than confrontation. China has played an important role in uniting key stakeholders and stressed the importance of continuing mutual trade, which I think is very important. I believe that China's initiatives in sustainable development are crucial... The the Belt and Road Initiative is very important for promoting the development of other emerging economies.

Sadia Zahidi, Executive Director of the World Economic Forum, said in an exclusive interview on the eve of the opening of the annual meeting that China's optimization and adjustment of epidemic prevention and control measures will greatly promote global economic growth and boost confidence for global medium and long-term development.

She believed that China's measures to cope with climate change and protect the environment, as well as China's technology and innovation will have a global impact, and China's role in promoting global cooperation is crucial.Editor/Ma Xue
