ASEAN, China reaffirm commitment to forge closer cooperation

After 25 years of being dialogue partners, China and ASEAN member countries will further push  their strategic partnership by enhancing mutual respect, understanding, trust, support and pragmatic cooperation.


The commitment was made at the 18th China-ASEAN Joint Cooperation Committee (ACJCC) meeting held in ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta, Indonesia on April 10, attended by officials from the two sides.

The meeting was co-chaired by Chinese Ambassador to ASEAN Xu Bu and Chen Han-cheng, Permanent Representative of Singapore to ASEAN, China-ASEAN Coordinators, Permanent Representatives of the ten ASEAN countries, senior officials of the ASEAN Secretariat and representatives from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Tourism Administration.

Addressing the meeting, Xu Bu said that two-way trade has soared to 452.2 billion U.S. dollars last year. China has become ASEAN's largest trading partner, while ASEAN is China's third largest trading partner, the fourth largest export market and the second largest source of imports. In the meantime, people-to-people exchanges have been greatly enhanced thanks to rapid expansion of direct flights serving China and ASEAN countries, with around 2,700 flights per week, he said. Xu said that ASEAN remains a priority in China's diplomacy towards its  neighborhood, adding that  Beijing continues to support ASEAN's centrality in regional cooperation as well as its greater role in regional and international affairs.

 Chen Han-cheng said that ASEAN  appreciates the achievements resulted from the development of China-ASEAN relations and cooperation in various fields throughout last year. He added that ASEAN appreciates China's long-term support for ASEAN development and ASEAN Community building.

Permanent Representatives of ASEAN Member States spoke highly of the positive achievements of ASEAN's cooperation with China in various sectors, hoping that ASEAN and China should elevate  their pragmatic cooperation.
