China continues to welcome foreign investment

China's welcoming policy towards foreign investment will not change, Xi said.

China remains committed to providing better services for foreign investors and will always keep its door to the outside world open, he added.

He also urged relative parties to speed up the construction of the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) and promote regional economic integration.

Xi suggested that the openness and inclusiveness of free trade arrangements be strengthened to the greatest extent on the basis of equal participation and ample consultation.
