Founded in 1963, the annual MSC has become a forum dedicated to promoting peaceful conflict resolution and international cooperation and dialogue. It is one of the most important forums in the fields of global strategies and security policies. 

China attaches great importance to the Munich Security Conference. In recent years, China sent senior representatives to attend the Conference every year to make in-depth communications with all parties concerned on topics regarding security policies, counter-terrorism, regional security situation, and global governance, playing an important role in enhancing mutual understanding and cooperation.
