On November 1st, Ren Hongbin, Chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), met with Clare Fearnley, Ambassador of New Zealand to China in Beijing.
Ren Hongbin briefed on the significance and major achievements of the 20th CPC National Congress. He noted that Chinese modernization is a new path to modernization pursued by the Chinese people under the leadership of the CPC, which not only contains elements that are common to the modernization of all countries’, but is more characterized by Chinese national conditions. It provides important theoretical and practical innovation for a global modernization. China will continue its high-standard opening up, and foster a market-oriented, law-based and internationalized first-class business environment, creating new opportunities for the world with its own development. Ren Hongbin expressed his gratitude for Clare Fearnley's efforts during her tenure to advance China-New Zealand relationship. He added that the CCPIT will continuously give full play to the role of Task Forces Serving Foreign-invested Enterprises to resolve concerns and difficulties of New Zealand and other foreign-invested enterprises. CCPIT will take the opportunity of the 50th anniversary of China-New Zealand diplomatic relations to deepen the exchanges and cooperation between the two countries' enterprises, in order to achieve more results in China-New Zealand comprehensive strategic partnership.
