China urges Eurasian stability


09:04, September 03, 2012

URUMQI, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao addressed an international fair on Sunday with a call for Eurasian countries to maintain stability and further open their markets to promote common development.

"The Eurasian continent is one of the most promising regions in the world in terms of consumption and investment," Wen said at the opening ceremony of the second China-Eurasia Expo in Urumqi, capital of China's westernmost Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. "As long as we open our markets to each other and draw on each other's strengths, we can develop long and stable cooperation."

He urged Eurasian countries to deepen cooperation in customs, quality inspection, e-commerce, transit transport, standard certification and intellectual property rights, facilitate a free flow of personnel, goods, capital, technology and services within the region, and jointly resist trade protectionism.

In his keynote speech, the premier urged Eurasian countries to maintain a peaceful and stable environment.

"Nothing could be achieved without a peaceful and stable environment," Wen said, reiterating China's belief that regional affairs should be determined by countries and peoples of this region.

"China opposes outside intervention," he added.

In his speech to an audience of leaders from eight countries and expo participants from 55 countries and regions, Wen also urged cooperation in cross-border infrastructure construction to accelerate the connectivity process and to deepen culture and people-to-people exchanges.

The expo, a six-day international fair under the theme of "harmonious development, win-win cooperation," aims to fast-track economic cooperation at the heart of Eurasia.
