More steps should be taken to maintain the security of industrial and supply chains, and to forestall and defuse major risks.
The fundamental role of agriculture should not be neglected or undermined at any time.
Unwavering efforts should be made to make economic globalization more open, inclusive and balanced so that its benefits are shared by all, and to build an open world economy.
