With our president Luis Arce, we participated in the II World Trade and Investment Promotion Summit of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade.
The event brings together international organizations and global agencies for the promotion of world trade and investment, with the common goal of strengthening confidence in mutually beneficial cooperation and jointly building an open world economy.
On this occasion, the President called cooperation and dialogue "essential" to address global economic and social challenges. He reiterated the need to work "all together" to build a more "fair and equitable" world economy.
Arce said Bolivia shares the global civilization initiative because it is convinced that "tolerance, coexistence and mutual exchanges between different civilizations" play an irreplaceable role in advancing the process of modernization of humanity.
The Bolivian president considered that, in recent decades, China has become a vital actor for Latin America in the field of trade and investment in this new global context.
The "global crisis of capitalism" has put humanity at a crossroads, Arce said, noting that he values China's proposal for "global development, the global security initiative, and the global civilization initiative."
