Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday sent a congratulatory letter to the second Global Digital Trade Expo, which runs from Nov. 23 to 27 in Hangzhou, the capital of east China's Zhejiang Province.
Booming global digital trade has become a new bright spot in international trade, Xi said in the letter.
In recent years, China has actively made alignment with high-standard international economic and trade rules, established and improved its digital trade governance systems, and promoted the reform and innovation of digital trade, Xi said.
By doing that, China has been providing new opportunities for the world with its new development, Xi said.
Xi called for making full use of the expo to promote cooperation, common development and shared benefits, build digital trade into a new engine for common development, and inject new impetus into world economic growth.
With the theme of "Digital Trade, Global Access," the expo was jointly hosted by the provincial government of Zhejiang and the Ministry of Commerce.
