"Whether it was the past Asian financial crisis, the global financial crisis or the European debt crisis, China's economy can create better conditions for the global economic recovery through its own stable development every time of crisis, and bring obvious spillover effects." Yan said.

Comprehensively expanding opening up is China's responsibility to promote the construction of an open world economy.

In order to make the Chinese market a world market, a shared market, and a market for everyone, Xi Jinping proposed four measures to build a new highland of opening up, promote innovative development of foreign trade, continue to optimize the business environment, and deepen bilateral, multilateral, and regional cooperation.

The spread of the new crown epidemic has intensified the trend of anti-globalization, and populism and protectionism have risen accordingly.

Compared with the past opening-up measures, whether in terms of institutional mechanisms , Laws and regulations, or bilateral and multilateral cooperation with foreign countries, are moving towards a higher level of opening up.

Dongyan believes that the current protectionism has led to the retreat of some industrial chains, and China must use independent and institutional openness to build a structure that is more conducive to attracting foreign investment, promoting the flow of factors, and cultivating good business. As the soil for environmental development, China's opening up is based on its own development that will benefit the global economic governance system and the world economy.
