In the past few years China has been an important engine of world economy. How do you see the great contribution of China to the world economy growth?

For decades China has maintained the the highest rate oh economic growth in the world occupiying today the place of the second strongest economy in the world. This made China as the most important single contributor to overcoming 2008-2013 world financial and economic crisis. China's contribution to the world economic growth is higher today than that of EU, USA and Japan combined.

President Xi renews pledges to open economy, cut tariffs this year. What's the siginificance of the open economy for the recovery of the world economy, especially nowadays facing the challenge of roaring protectionism ?

Achievements of China in all fields of modern socioeconomic development would have not been possible without the polocy of reforms and opening, wthout win win cooperation with all countries be they the most developed or developing ones. China's rich expiriences and results confirm uvivoquably that only oppeness, partnership based on equality and respect of mutual interests are guaranties for selfsustanable national and global growth. In the globalized and closly interdependant economies any protectionism, autarchy or isolationism are not only outdated but also counterproductive policies missing sense of reality and vision. Stable, sustainable growth in the world need oppenness, inclusiveness, respect of mutual interests and equality smong partners. Any egoism and norrowness would backfire in the form of slow growth, or worse, in instability or new crises.

The "Boao proposals" have helped build consensus in Asia, encourage cooperation, promote economic globalization and advance the building of a community with a shared future for mankind, said President Xi today. How do you see the  "Boao proposals", and what's the siginificance to global governance?

Boao proposals confirm that Asia is a center and leader of modern economic and technological development of the world economy at the begining of the Third milenium. Consensus on oppeness, partnership based on equality and mutual interests is inspiring examle to the rest of the wirld how to build stable and safe common future of the menkind. No doubt, Asia with China as its' sicioeconomic engine, will play leading role in the world economic governance thus guarateerig more equatable, inclusuve and democratic world economic system.

One Belt One Road Initiative has attracted more and more attention worldwide. Why do the world is intrested in the program and what benefit can the program bring to the world?  

BRI as the global multidimrnsiinal development initiatve  has been the most broadly accepted primarily because it is open, inclusive and mutually beneficial for all partners. Connectivity in infrastructure economy and people to people are recognizable features differing BRI from any other known integration. Estsblishing economic bridges BRI at the same time brings cultures and civilization closer one to the other thus promoting understanding, mutual trust and peace in the world what is the most important in thise period of growing tensions and unpredictable developments.
