China and Finland join hands to meet challenges and jointly promote economic recovery



In the past year, the COVID-19 epidemic has hit the global economy hard. Humanity has suffered the worst economic recession since the end of World War II. The industries and businesses of various countries are facing different levels of operating difficulties. Stabilizing and revitalizing the economy has become a common challenge facing all countries. .


In the face of the crisis, China focused on coordinating the prevention and control of the epidemic and economic and social development, and adopted a series of countermeasures in a timely and decisive manner, achieved good results at a reasonable cost, and achieved economic stability and recovery relatively quickly. The annual economic growth was 2.3%, becoming the only country to achieve positive growth. major economies. International institutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development predict that China's economy will grow by about 8% in 2021, and its contribution to world economic growth will exceed one-third.


The strong resilience and vitality of the Chinese economy in the face of difficulties is inseparable from the persistence in opening up to the outside world and the continuous deep integration into the world economy for many years. The epidemic did not close China's door to the outside world, but opened it wider and wider. Based on the new development stage, China will implement the new development concept, actively build a new development pattern with the domestic cycle as the main body, and the domestic and international dual cycles to promote each other, continue to stimulate the vitality of the super large market, and inject greater momentum into the world economy under the haze of the epidemic. Countries are also welcome to share their development achievements and achieve mutual benefit and win-win results.


As the world's major economies, strengthening practical cooperation between China and the EU is of great significance to promoting the recovery of the world economy. I believe this is also the common wish of the business circles of both sides under the normalization of the epidemic. Not long ago, China and the EU announced the completion of investment agreement negotiations as scheduled, demonstrating the joint efforts of both sides to uphold international rules and promote practical cooperation. Recently, Premier Li Keqiang of the State Council of China held a video dialogue meeting with representatives of European entrepreneurs, and conducted in-depth exchanges on issues such as the Chinese market and consumption, China-EU trade and investment cooperation, China's business environment, cooperation in fighting the epidemic, and addressing climate change. determination and sincerity. The participating European entrepreneurs cast a vote of confidence for China's development and China-EU cooperation, expressing their support for the advancement of the ratification and full implementation of the China-EU Investment Agreement, and their commitment to strengthening cooperation with China.


China and Finland have maintained close exchanges and cooperation during the epidemic. For example, Finland's food exports to China achieved a substantial increase last year. As the Chinese ambassador to Finland, I often hear many people express their optimism about China's economy and China-Finland cooperation in exchanges with Finnish entrepreneurs. In the post-pandemic era, the two countries have broad prospects for cooperation in areas such as green development and climate change.

At present, the global epidemic situation is still severe. Effectively controlling the epidemic and creating more favorable conditions for economic recovery is still a top priority for all countries. Not long ago, China announced to provide 10 million doses of vaccines to the WHO's "New Coronary Pneumonia Vaccine Implementation Plan". China will continue to strengthen coordination and cooperation with the international community, including the European side, to jointly tackle challenges and promote economic recovery.

Xi Jinping Speaks on the Phone with Finnish President Niinisto




Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, June 21. On the evening of June 21, President Xi Jinping had a telephone conversation with Finnish President Niinisto.


Xi Jinping pointed out that last year we jointly celebrated the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Finland. Over the past year, the two sides have joined hands to fight against the new crown pneumonia epidemic, deepening friendship, overcoming difficulties and advancing practical cooperation and development. The Chinese side is willing to work with the Finnish side to give full play to their complementary advantages to expand and strengthen bilateral trade. We welcome Finnish companies to continue to share the dividends brought about by China's development, and hope that Finland will continue to support cooperation in investment and other fields with an open attitude. The Chinese side is willing to strengthen personnel exchanges with the Finnish side, carry out more cooperation in fields such as scientific research, science and education, green and low-carbon, and jointly address the challenge of climate change. China is actively preparing for the Beijing Winter Olympics and wishes Finland every success in the Beijing Winter Olympics.


Xi Jinping emphasized that it was not easy for China-EU relations to go against the trend of the new crown pneumonia epidemic last year, and it should be cherished. The key is to work together to maintain the leading aspect of dialogue and cooperation in China-EU relations and the main tone of mutual benefit and win-win results. It is hoped that Finland will play a unique and positive role in promoting the healthy and stable development of China-EU relations.


Xi Jinping pointed out that the current world structure is evolving rapidly, and global threats and challenges are emerging one after another. All parties should work together in a cooperative rather than confrontational, win-win rather than zero-sum manner. China appreciates Finland's positive role in this regard. China is willing to work with Finland to uphold true multilateralism, actively respond to global challenges such as public health security and climate change through international cooperation, and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.


Niinisto said that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Finland and China 70 years ago, the relations between the two countries have made great progress. China is Finland's most important trading partner in Asia, and the two sides have great potential for cooperation in high-tech, circular economy and other fields. The cooperation between Finland and China has played an important role in Finland's better response to the new crown pneumonia epidemic. Finland attaches great importance to cooperation with China on the Winter Olympics and will actively participate in the Beijing Winter Olympics. Great changes have taken place in the world today, and mankind is facing common challenges such as climate change and the new crown pneumonia epidemic. Finland advocates carrying forward the "Spirit of Helsinki" in 1975 and jointly responding to global challenges through dialogue and cooperation. In this process, China's role is crucial and indispensable. The Finnish side is willing to play an active role in promoting EU-China dialogue and cooperation.
