SCO summit stresses cooperation as route to growth and security

Leaders of the six-member Shanghai Cooperation Organization began to forge a path ahead for the bloc, as they kicked off their annual summit, amid a rapidly changing regional and global landscape.

After a slew of bilateral meetings on Tuesday, the leaders of the bloc, which groups China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, held their first meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

The summit focused on consolidating unity and planning direction.

Trade, food and energy security were identified as key areas of cooperation and new funding models were explored.

The summit will continue on Thursday and will be joined by leaders and officials from the bloc's observer and dialogue partners.

President Hu Jintao told the summit that the members should enhance economic cooperation and be better prepared to navigate the choppy waters of the global economy.
