Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday called on the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) countries to foster stronger inter-communication in realizing regional integration and stabilizing supply chains.
Premier Li made the remarks while hosting the 21st Meeting of the Council of Heads of Government of the SCO Member States.
He also urged further cooperation in security, trade, food and energy supply as well as people-to-people exchanges in strengthening political mutual trust and friendly exchanges within the SCO.
Speaking of the Chinese economy, Li said it has shown a trend of a steady rebound this year through a series of policies and measures despite certain unexpected pressures. He doubled down on the implementation of the policies and said the country will keep on promoting the healthy and stable development of the economy.
The Chinese premier stressed that the country will stick to its basic state policy of reform and opening-up and follow the path of peaceful development, especially against the backdrop of the just-concluded 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. China will also continue to strengthen cooperation with the SCO member states on all fronts, he added.
SCO leaders at the meeting spoke highly of the cooperative results from all fronts within the SCO and expressed their willingness to better the cooperative mechanism and dig into the cooperative potential in jointly facing challenges including food, energy security and climate changes.
