On March 4, the Fourth Session of the Thirteenth National People's Congress held a press conference in the Press Conference Hall of the Great Hall of the People. The spokesperson of the Congress answered questions from Chinese and foreign journalists on the agenda of the Congress and issues related to the work of the National People's Congress.

  Xinhua News Agency reporter: An important agenda for this year's conference is to review the draft of the "14th Five-Year Plan" plan, which emphasizes that more attention should be paid to expanding domestic demand and expanding internal circulation.

At the same time, we have also seen that at the end of last year, China successively signed regional comprehensive economic partnership agreements and completed negotiations on the China-EU investment agreement.

In your opinion, does this release a signal for further opening up?

Do you think there is a contradiction between the two?

How to deal with the relationship between the two?

Thank you.

  Zhang Yesui: Thank you for your question.

An important agenda for this year's conference is to review and adopt the "14th Five-Year Plan" and the draft outline of 2035 long-term goals.

During the implementation of the "14th Five-Year" plan, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress will also review the mid-term evaluation report of the plan to ensure that the goals and tasks can be achieved as scheduled.

  Zhang Yesui: Persisting in opening to the outside world is one of the basic experiences of China's economic success. Participating in the international economic cycle is as important now as in the past.

China's economy has been deeply integrated into the world economy, and the domestic and foreign demand markets themselves are interdependent and mutually reinforcing.

The construction of a new development pattern is by no means a closed domestic single cycle, but an open and mutually reinforcing domestic and international double cycle, which is to make the domestic market better connect with the international market by leveraging the potential of domestic demand, and to attract global resource elements through the domestic cycle , Make better use of both domestic and international markets and resources.

  Zhang Yesui: The signing of regional comprehensive economic partnership agreements with relevant countries and the completion of China-EU investment agreement negotiations will strongly promote economic globalization and regional economic integration. This is not inconsistent with building a new development pattern.

Under the new development pattern of "dual cycle", China will increase its institutional opening up, continue to promote trade and investment liberalization and facilitation, and continue to create a market-oriented, legalized, and internationalized business environment to share the world with the world. All countries achieve mutual benefit, win-win results and common development.

Thank you.
