I think President Xi's speech is much more positive and he is talking about collaboration between different states of the region. China has a more positive presence because China and other parts of the region are working on free trade and improving mutual investments and things like that.

He continues to offer the world with many solutions and cooperations of the economy. China is playing a leading role in the world. Not only his speeches, he promised that China will for the benefits of all people of the world, it is not only with APEC. It's also with Latin American countries.

It kind of made us feel proud. It's Papua New Guinea. We are the next host of APEC. We are at the end of the road, so we are included in it and it's good to see world leaders he mentioned something China being the world's second largest economy.
