The cooperation among ASEAN countries, China, Japan and the Republic of Korea has been demonstrating strong vitality and developing on a fast track in the past decade.

Continuing to maintain the momentum of 10+3 cooperation and deepening mutual beneficial cooperation will certainly play important roles in facilitating prosperity and stability of East Asia and in building a harmonious East Asia.

As a member of East Asia, China pursues the following goal in its relations with other countries in the region, namely, harmony in the political area, equality and mutual benefit in the economic area, mutual enrichment in the cultural area and mutual trust and coordination in the area of security. With the goal in mind, China has in the past decade been committed to building friendship and partnership with its neighbors and actively participated in regional cooperation, including 10+3 cooperation. China strives to develop itself through further opening up and contribute to the development of East Asia and world through its own development.
