Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Regular Press Conference on July 10, 2018
At the invitation of State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Minister of International Affairs and Cooperation Unity Dow of the Republic of Botswana will pay an official visit to China from July 12 to 14.
The Foreign Ministry and the People's Government of the Hubei Province will hold a promotion event in the South Building at 3:30 pm on July 12 (Thursday), presenting Hubei Province to the world under the theme of "China in the New Era: Hubei, from the Yangtze River to the World". State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi will deliver a speech at the event. Secretary of Hubei Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Jiang Chaoliang and Provincial Governor Wang Xiaodong will also make remarks and representations. Foreign diplomatic envoys are invited to speak and interact with all the guests.
Hubei is the place where the Yangtze River civilization originated and gets passed on. In recent years, through fully leveraging its geographic advantage of being located along the Yangtze River which is known as the "golden waterway", Hubei has been making positive efforts to transform itself into a shining example of opening-up among all inland provinces, an engine for high-quality development in the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and a crucial juncture connecting the Yangtze River Economic Belt and the Belt and Road, thus laying out a blueprint for Hubei Province to march onto the world stage from its home along the Yangtze River. We believe that this promotion event will present a charming Yangtze River to the world and showcase a new Hubei, full of vitality, opening its arms to the outside world. We look forward to seeing your participation in and coverage on this event.
Q: It is reported that the third meeting of the 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference will be held in Myanmar on July 11. Will China send officials to attend the event?
