On June 22, Mr. Tang Guocai, Consul General of the People's Republic of China in Mumbai, attended the Third Global Business Leadership Forum hosted by the Asian-African Chamber of Commerce & Industry and delivered a keynote speech.

Mr. Tang said that facts of China-US trade friction are very clear, and China's determination to safeguard its development rights and interests will not waver. The trend of the times will not be stopped by certain ill-intention countries. The time is on the side of developing countries such as China, India and Africa. In the 1950s, China, India and African countries jointly initiated the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. In the new era, China, India and Africa should join hands to resolutely fight against trade bullying and safeguard the common interests of developing countries, international trade order and globalization.

Mr. Tang pointed out that both China and India are civilizations with a long history and Africa is an important source of human civilization. They should draw wisdom from history and culture and contribute to sustainable development of the whole world.

Mr. Tang emphasized China, India and Africa are partners in the development and revival journey. They should fully tap the potential of economic cooperation and trade, cultivate a solid foundation of common interests, comprehensively deepen partnerships and strive to build a community of shared future.
