Remarks by Ambassador Jiang Jiang at the Photo Exhibition Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China

Dear Friends,

    Welcome to this photo exhibition celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

    This exhibition is a journey through time and space. It takes us through a glorious course of China's development, and the collective memories of the Chinese people from each generation.

    The exhibition aims to present major historic moments and the hard-working people of China. As I stand before each picture, I feel proud of my country and its achievements.

    Over the past 70 years, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, we have, through tireless and courageous efforts, pursued a unique path of socialism with Chinese characteristics and come a long way in building our country. The Chinese people have stood up, and are becoming more prosperous and stronger.

    China's development also brings opportunities to Malta as well as other countries in the world.

    For the past 13 consecutive years, China has been the No.1 contributor to global economic growth. China accounts for some 30 percent of annual global growth, higher than the share of the United States, EU and Japan combined.

    Under the Belt and Road Initiative, a great number of signature projects have been launched in the partner countries. These projects play an important role in boosting local investment and consumption, generating demand and employment, enhancing people-to-people exchanges and raising people's living standards.

    Dear friends,

    We will soon ring out the year 2019 and ring in a new year.

    Looking ahead, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, we will stay on the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, continue our country's reform and opening-up, and share development opportunities with the rest of the world.

    We stand ready to work with Malta, with the MOU on Belt and Road cooperation signed last year as our guidance, to deepen our cooperation in various fields, including clean energy, infrastructure and people-to-people exchanges and push our bilateral relations to a new high.

    We will work with all other countries to build a community with a shared future for mankind, and an open, inclusive, clean and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity.

    Thank you.
