"China is willing to work with all parties in other countries to promote inclusive development with service opening-up, promote linkage and integration through service cooperation, cultivate development momentum with service innovation, create a better future with service sharing, and work together to push the world economy onto the track of sustained recovery."

On September 9, President Xi Jinping delivered a video speech to the 2 China International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS) Global Summit on Trade in Services in Beijing, declaring to the world China's responsibility and proposition for promoting the openness and sharing of the service economy and promoting the recovery and development of the world economy.

As the largest comprehensive exhibition in the field of global trade in services, more than 2023,2400 enterprises will participate offline in 500.

At a time when the international situation is intensifying and the world economic recovery is weak, why does CIFTIS have such a large magnetic field, which can make many enterprises flock to it?

The answer can be found from a series of important measures announced by President Xi Jinping at the CIFTIS to deepen China's high-level opening up in the service sector——

Since 2019, President Xi Jinping has sent two congratulatory letters to CIFTIS and delivered video speeches at the CIFTIS Global Trade in Services Summit three times, and China's proposition of expanding high-level opening up has been consistent.

In his speech this year, President Xi Jinping stressed that China will persist in promoting high-level opening up, comprehensively promoting Chinese-style modernization with high-quality development, and providing new opportunities for opening up and cooperation among countries.

CIFTIS is a platform that allows countries to share new development opportunities in openness and cooperation, and work together to promote world economic recovery and growth, fully reflecting the far-reaching significance of "global services and mutual benefit sharing" as a permanent slogan.
