Charting China's Diplomatic Role

China and neighboring countries

In 2010, new progress was made in China's relations with neighboring countries. The prominent features are:

We deepened mutual trust. Chinese leaders made many visits to Asian countries. They had an in-depth exchange of views with their foreign counterparts on how to further deepen mutual trust and conduct cooperation. Important agreements were reached.

Asian countries worked together and achieved notable results in overcoming the impact of the financial crisis on the Asian economy. The Asian economy as a whole grew by 8.2 percent last year. It has become an important engine in driving the world economic recovery.

This year, we will continue to increase mutual political trust. This year marks the 60th, 50th and 20th anniversaries of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Pakistan, China and Laos, and China and Brunei, respectively. It is also the 20th anniversary of the establishment of dialogue relationship between China and ASEAN. It is also the year of friendly exchanges between China and ASEAN, and between China and India. We will hold a series of vibrant commemoration activities and work with other Asian countries to deepen mutual understanding and pursue common development in Asia.

We will vigorously promote regional integration and cooperation processes. The China-ASEAN Free Trade Area has been fully established, marking a good beginning. At the same time, efforts will also be made to advance practical cooperation between ASEAN and China, Japan and South Korea.
