Though it faces the headwinds of protectionism and unilateralism, China remains a staunch supporter of globalization, multilateralism and the free trade system, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Friday.

Wang made the remarks at a press conference in Beijing on the sidelines of the second session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC).

"(China) will stay committed to a global governance philosophy featuring consultation and cooperation for shared benefits," he said.

Wang added that China will firmly uphold rules-based multilateralism and the international system centered around the UN, as well as support the UN system as a key platform of global governance.
