On January 24, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian held a regular press conference.We have taken note of the 2021-2022 Business Confidence survey jointly released by the German Chamber of Commerce in China and KPMG, which shows that German companies are still full of confidence in the growth of the Chinese market. Nearly 60% of German companies will achieve business growth in 2021.We have also noted the 2022 Business Confidence Survey released by the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, which shows that more American companies in Hong Kong have increased confidence in Hong Kong’s business environment and have higher expectations for the development of the Greater Bay Area.What is China’s comment on that?Zhao Lijian said that with the prolonged and repeated COVID-19 outbreak, the recovery of the world economy is facing no small challenge. With its own sustained and steady economic development, China continues to contribute positive energy to the world economy.Based on the average annual exchange rate, China’s GDP will reach us $17.7 trillion in 2021, accounting for more than 18% of the global economy and contributing about 25% to world economic growth.Zhao lijian pointed out that China has always been committed to building an open world economy and creating a market-based, law-based and international business environment, which has provided a strong guarantee for foreign enterprises to invest and do business in China.In the Doing Business 2020 Report released by the World Bank, China ranks 31st out of 190 economies in terms of business environment, and has been among the top 10 economies with the most improved business environment for two consecutive years.It is worth noting that China ranked 91st in 2012, a jump of 60 places in just eight years.China’s business environment has improved significantly.”The two surveys you just mentioned also reflect the personal feelings of foreign enterprises, which proves that China’s efforts and measures to expand opening-up and improve the business environment have yielded positive results and won wide recognition.”Looking into the future, China will not change its determination to expand high-level opening-up, to share development opportunities with the world, and to make economic globalization more open, inclusive, balanced and beneficial to all, Zhao said.China will only open its door wider and brighter to the outside world.
