Xi Jinping's opening speech at the Expo 10 golden sentences
  1. Economic globalization is an irreversible historical trend that has provided a strong impetus for the development of the world economy. To say that it is the general trend of history means that its development does not depend on human will. Human beings can recognize, conform to, and apply historical laws, but they cannot prevent historical laws from working. History is bound to move forward in a mighty way.

2. Looking back at history, open cooperation is an important driving force for enhancing the vitality of international economy and trade. Based on today, openness and cooperation are realistic requirements for promoting the stable recovery of the world economy. Looking to the future, openness and cooperation are the requirements of the times to promote the continuous progress of human society.

3. Looking at the history of international economic and trade development, it has profoundly verified the law of "common will advance together, and closed will each retreat". By reducing barriers and opening wider to countries, international economic and trade can open up the bloodline; If we treat our neighbors as beggars and isolate and close, international economic and trade will stagnate and the world economy will find it difficult to develop healthily.

4. For human society to continue to progress, all countries should insist on opening up rather than closing, cooperation rather than confrontation, and win-win rather than monopoly. Today, with the in-depth development of economic globalization, the law of the jungle and winner-take-all is a dead-end street that is getting narrower and narrower, and inclusiveness, mutual benefit and win-win results are the right way to go wider and wider.

5. I have stressed many times that China's door to opening up will not be closed, but will only open wider and wider. China's push for a higher level of opening up will not stop! China's efforts to build an open world economy will not stop! China's pace of promoting the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind will not stop!

6. China will always be an important promoter of global common opening up, China will always be a stable power source for world economic growth, China will always be a dynamic market for countries to expand business opportunities, and China will always be an active contributor to global governance reform!

7. China's initiative to expand imports is not an expedient measure, but a long-term consideration for the world, the future, and common development.

8. The business environment is only better, not the best. All countries should strive to improve their business environment and solve their own problems, and cannot always whitewash themselves and blame others, and cannot only shine on others and not themselves like a flashlight.

9. China's economy is a sea, not a small pond. The sea has calm times and stormy times. Without the wind and rain, it would not be the sea. Stormy winds and rain can overturn small ponds, but not the sea. After countless storms, the sea is still there! After more than 5,000 years of hardship, China is still there! Facing the future, China will always be here!

10. As long as we maintain our strategic concentration, comprehensively deepen reform and opening up, deepen supply-side structural reform, and make great efforts to solve the outstanding contradictions and problems, China's economy will certainly be able to accelerate its transition to a high-quality development track, Chinese people will certainly be able to overcome all difficulties and challenges on the way forward, and China will certainly be able to usher in brighter development prospects.
