Boao Forum to focus on globalization and free trade
The annual Boao Forum for Asia 2019 will focus on safeguarding globalization and free trade amid mounting downward global economic pressure, instability and uncertainties, Li Baodong, secretary-general of the forum said on Wednesday in Beijing.
Li announced that the forum's meeting, under the theme of a "Shared Future, Concerted Action, Common Development" is scheduled to be held from March 26-29 in Boao, Hainan province. The opening plenum will take place on March 28.
In his speech, Li said the global economy in 2018 saw "moderate growth, but with slower momentum" as protectionism and unilateralism are posing real and serious challenges. He stressed that an approach involving multilateralism and cooperation must be respected to cope with a backlash, in some countries, to globalization and its threats to the world economy.
"It is in this global context that the BFA has opted for ‘Shared Future, Concerted Action, Common Development' as the theme of its 2019 annual conference. A shared future calls for concerted actions, whereas concerted actions lead to common development," Li said, adding that the conference will provide an open, inclusive dialogue platform for stakeholders and send a clear message to build a consensus regarding rising global challenges.
