Foreign ambassadors to China welcome government work report


Foreign diplomats said they are keen to learn about China's policy goals for this year, particularly in terms of economic development, when they attended the opening meeting of the second session of the 14th National People's Congress (NPC) in Beijing on Tuesday.

It has been a tradition for diplomatic envoys in China to be invited to the opening and closing meetings of the Two Sessions to learn about the world's second-largest economy's achievements over the past year and hear about its development targets for the upcoming year.

Ismail Hakki Musa, the ambassador of Türkiye to China, who attended the NPC session for the first time, said he is very interested in everything related to it.

The Two Sessions is one of the most important political agendas in China, and what is happening in China is important not only for China but also for the rest of the world, said the Turkish ambassador.

Musa added that from the government work report, which Premier Li Qaing delivered at the opening meeting, the envoys saw China's development achievements in the past year and captured new signals of China's future development.

Siyabonga Cyprian Cwele, South African Ambassador to China, noted that China has set a target of around 5 percent economic growth, saying that this is encouraging and will benefit the world, especially the developing countries.

Noting China remains committed to high-quality development, including the development of new technologies and green and sustainable development, Cwele said those are very important for all developing nations.

Turkmenistan's Ambassador to China, Parahat Durdyev, was interested in the development of hydrogen energy, which was mentioned in the government work report.

Turkmenistan hopes to carry out more bilateral cooperation in the field of hydrogen energy development, said the Turkmen envoy.
