2018/04/25

    On April 24, Ambassador Lyu Jian was invited to the China Cultural Center in Bangkok to give a lecture to the "Thai-Chinese Leadership Studies".

  Ambassador Lyu’s lecture dealt with the current trend in international landscape, new measures endorsed by China to expand opening up, new developments in implementing “the Belt and Road”, and opportunities and challenges faced by Sino-Thai cooperation in a thorough and comprehensive manner. In his lecture, Ambassador Lyu gave special emphasis to President Xi Jinping’s speech at the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2018, the outstanding performance of China’s economy, China’s achievements over the past 40 years in reform and opening up and major progress made since the initiation of "the Belt and Road" 5 years ago.

  Ambassador Lyu stressed that China’s achievements would not have been possible without opening up to the outside world, extensive cooperation with other countries, and active participation and promotion of globalization. Looking into the future, China's door of opening-up will not be closed and will only open even wider! Efforts will be made to significantly broaden market access, create a more attractive investment environment, strengthen protection of intellectual property rights (IPR), and take the initiative to expand imports. This is not only a strategic choice made by China based on its rate and road map of development, but also a solemn commitment to firmly upholding globalization and promoting trade liberalization, which will create new opportunities for all countries to achieve common development and prosperity.

  Ambassador Lyu said that China and Thailand are close neighbors enjoying a deep bond of cultural and people-to-people affinity. There is a strong foundation and broad prospect for cooperation between the two countries. As important developing countries in the region, China and Thailand are faced with the common challenge of de-globalization and trade protectionism, and shoulder the common tasks of transforming and upgrading the domestic economy and improving people’s livelihood. China is willing to work with Thailand to further deepen strategic mutual trust, enhance the complementarity of development strategies, make a big pie of common interests, and move the two countries even closer to each other.

  The students of “Thai-Chinese Leadership Studies” are senior executives from the Thai government, the army, enterprises and so on. More than 150 students and elites of Thailand listened to the lecture and interacted warmly. On behalf of all the students, Vice President of the Thai-Chinese Cultural and Relationship Council, GEN. Vichit Yathip, thanked Ambassador Lyu for his wonderful lecture. He said that the ambassador's lecture gave the audience a more comprehensive and profound understanding of China's development path and opening up strategy, and made them full of hope and confidence in the bright future of Sino-Thai relations.
