Meeting the Press
Cover Stories Series 2011> Outlining the 12th Five-Year Plan> Meeting the Press

Charting China's Diplomatic Role


China and other members of the group welcome South Africa's joining the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), and we welcome South African President Jacob Zuma to attend the BRICS Leaders' Meeting in Sanya in China's Hainan Province in April.

We hope the upcoming meeting will produce positive and important results. It is important for leaders of the BRICS countries to step up exchanges and dialogue. The BRICS countries may have different historical and cultural backgrounds, but they all face the task of maintaining sound momentum in domestic development while maintaining steady economic and social development. The BRICS countries have a keen interest in international economic and financial development. Therefore, they are willing to enhance exchanges and dialogue in these respects. It is not only the shared wish of people of the BRICS countries, but also represents an expectation of all people in the world.

We hope the BRICS countries will further enhance their practical cooperation. In the past months, they have already engaged in productive cooperation in environmental protection. Business communities and think tanks of the BRICS countries have also conducted exchanges. We hope the countries will seize the opportunity presented by the leaders' meeting. We will work with the other countries concerned to develop new cooperation patterns, enrich the content of our cooperation, and bring greater benefits to our peoples.

We hope the meeting will demonstrate the important and constructive role the BRICS countries have played in tackling the international financial crisis, spurring world economic recovery and meeting climate challenges. The BRICS countries are not developing into a group of emerging markets setting themselves in competition with developed countries. I would like to underline that the BRICS organization is open and inclusive. And this is an important part of South-South cooperation. It also serves as an important bridge in North-South cooperation.
