In the face of increasing international conflicts and disputes, global challenges have become more prominent. All parties generally believe that strengthening global governance is more important and urgent than ever.

Among them, there are not only the “dual cycle” and financial openness that are of great concern to all parties, such as China’s development trend issues, but also carbon neutrality, aging, new crown vaccine, digital economy and other practical issues of universal significance in the world.
