The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult
ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.
Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所
ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo
reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra
de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所
titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.
An important player for global governance
The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm
ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves
tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne
gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and
expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.

bal economic recovery is facing challenges and uncertainties thanks to the rise of trade protectionism and unila
teralism in some economies since 2017. In fact, protectionism and unilateralism have become an impediment to global growth.

00,000 households in the district have signed commitment letters promising to obey the standard.
Government statistics show that the cost of a wedding has been cut to less than 30,000 yuan, down b
y about 80 percent, and the current cost for a funeral is less than 5,000 yuan, just a sixth of the previous cost.

air and sustainable development, while the previous one in Germany addressed issues including corruption, mon
