“The ASEAN-China Youth Forum is an important platform for promoting exchanges between China and ASEAN countries, especially between the youth. Through this event, Chinese and ASEAN youths will further enhance understanding, promote consensus to shoulder the mission of promoting the integrated development of all countries,” said Wang Changren, Party Secretary of Hainan Tropical Ocean University.

Chen Dehai, Secretary-General of ASEAN-China Center, said that ASEAN and China are good neighbors, friends and partners. Since the launch of ASEAN-China dialogue relations in 1991 and the establishment of a strategic partnership in 2003, the mutual trust and affinity between the two sides has deepened, while cooperation in trade, economy and other various fields has yielded fruitful results and benefited more people.

The forum will not only enrich your understanding of ASEAN-China relations, but also provide a wonderful opportunity to forge friendship, deepen mutual trust, and jointly explore ways to address challenges and grasp opportunities to build a better future for our region and our people,” Chen said.

During the forum, the participants will deliver presentations and discuss a variety of topics, including economic cooperation, technology and innovation, humanity and cultural exchanges between China and ASEAN, among others.
