Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

Good afternoon!

 

It's my great pleasure to be in such a beautiful and vigorous city, Shanghai. It's also my great honor to attend this conference organized by the Charhar Institute, the Netherlands Institute of International Relations "Clingendael" and the Institute for International Cultural Relations. As vice president of China Public Diplomacy Association and co-Chair of the International Advisory Board of the Charhar Institute, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you.

 

The international forum on public diplomacy has already become an important platform for communication of think tanks between China and Europe. I still keep in my mind what was like in Hague conference: All of my colleagues and I were warmly welcomed by the Netherlands friends. We have talked frankly and friendly on our common concerns and made consensus on how to continue the China-Europe Dialogue. I wrote a poet for Hague conference to express my feelings. It is not I like traveling, but I was born for China's diplomacy; Hardships we are confronted now, but we can always be surprised. Efforts should be always making to safeguard world peace; Hague Consensus is one of the important contributions by the conference.

 

I would like to say that choosing "city diplomacy" for the theme of the 3rd forum held in Shanghai is very appropriate. Shanghai, as one of China's largest city, has made a lot of achievements both in city development and in public diplomacy, which lay a good foundation for the success of the forum.

 

The forum will focus on Practice and Exploration of City Diplomacy, which is meaningful for the reason that city diplomacy holds a very important position in public diplomacy. The overall national diplomacy needs city diplomacy. City diplomacy, on the other hand, by making full use of local resources in international relations, communication and exchanges, will not only promote the city's development, but will also serve for national diplomacy.

 

City diplomacy or regional diplomacy has been paid much attention and achievements have been made. City diplomacy is of great importance for China's public diplomacy.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, world today are in constant changes. There is still a long way to go for world peace and development. There are rumors on China's rise, which create opportunities for scholars and experts and think tanks on public diplomacy in every country to do the research and to show their talents. I hope the forum will be fruitful and will make its due contribution to China-European relations and to world peace!


Thank you very much!
