At present, the new round of reform and opening-up has injected new vitality into the development of foreign trade.

Policy dividends have been gradually released, the business environment has been continuously improved, and the sense of corporate policy has been enhanced. According to the World Bank’s Business Environment Report 2020, China’s state-owned business environment ranks 15th to 31st. The questionnaire survey shows that more than 70% of enterprises are generally satisfied with the implementation of the foreign trade stabilization policy. In the next step, we will take Xi Jinping’s new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics as a guide, adhere to the general tone of seeking progress while maintaining stability, make greater efforts to stabilize expectations, stabilize confidence, stabilize enterprises, and promote high-quality trade development.
