SASAC Chairman Xiao Yaqing pointed out in his speech that in recent years, central SOEs have actively participated in the construction of the Belt and Road and have achieved remarkable results in infrastructure construction, energy cooperation and development, and international capacity cooperation.
In the face of the new changes in the current political and economic situation in the world, the central SOEs must adhere to the expansion of opening up and continue to deepen cooperation with countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative so as to continuously enrich the model of mutual benefit and win-win cooperation, Xiao said.
Central SOEs should maintain high-quality development, and strengthen international operation quality and level, adhere to risk prevention and establish the bottom line for risk prevention, use international practice rules to promote coordinated development, vigorously cultivate international talents, and enhance publicity to establish a good international image of the central SOEs, Xiao added.
