"China is an engine of the global economy, so when things slow down in China, the rest of the world are affected. But the most important thing is the strong commitment that the Chinese government has shown to work with the international community to address the slowdown of the economy around the world, and that’s why we are having conference like this one in the midst of COVID-19.
