Remarks at the 19th China-ASEAN Summit to Commemorate the 25th Anniversary of China-ASEAN Dialogue Relations


中华人民共和国国务院总理 李克强

H.E. Li Keqiang, Premier of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China



Vientiane, 7 September 2016





Your Excellency Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith,

Dear Colleagues,




It is a great pleasure to join you in Vientiane as we mark the 25th anniversary of China-ASEAN dialogue relations. I wish to thank the Lao government and Prime Minister Thongloun for the elaborate preparations and thoughtful arrangements made for this meeting. I also thank Singapore, the country coordinator for China-ASEAN relations, as well as other ASEAN countries, for their efforts and contribution in growing China-ASEAN relations.




We have just attended the ceremony marking the 25th anniversary of China-ASEAN dialogue relations to review the extraordinary path of development of our relations. Since our dialogue relations were established in 1991, China and ASEAN have, holding high the banner of development and cooperation and staying committed to mutual respect, mutual understanding, mutual trust and mutual support, made major strides forward in growing our relations and gained much valuable experience along the way. Development of our relations has effectively promoted peace, stability, prosperity and development in the region. Many colleagues from ASEAN countries have said that among all ASEAN’s dialogue partnerships, relations with China are the most dynamic and most fruitful. I, too, am very much encouraged by the development of our relations.




The past 25 years has witnessed the ever strengthening of our political mutual trust. China is not a country from the ASEAN region, yet it was the first to join the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia, the first to unequivocally support ASEAN centrality in regional cooperation, the first to establish strategic partnership with ASEAN, the first to openly state the willingness to sign the protocol to the Treaty on the Southeast Asian Nuclear-Weapon-Free-Zone and the first to start negotiations with ASEAN on an FTA. These many “firsts” are testimonial to China’s pursuit of amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness in its neighborhood diplomacy. They have added up to show China’s strong resolve in developing relations with ASEAN. They are also indicative of the strong will on both sides for cooperation, and they reflect the farsightedness and vision on both sides to lead cooperation in the region.




The past 25 years has seen fruitful results in China-ASEAN practical cooperation. Both sides have given priority to our cooperation with each other. We have steadily improved the cooperation mechanisms and shared development opportunities with each other. In recent years, the two sides have worked actively to align the initiatives of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road with individual national development strategies of the region. As we all know, by now, the negotiations on upgrading the China-ASEAN FTA have completed, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank has been set up and the Lancang-Mekong cooperation mechanism has been instituted. Over the past 25 years, the two-way trade volume has gone from $8 billion to $472.2 billion, an increase of almost 60 folds. China has been ASEAN’s biggest trading partner for seven years running and ASEAN has been China’s third largest trading partner for five years in a row. Two-way investment has registered fast and balanced growth with a total amount of $160 billion in accumulative terms. Chinese companies have set up 26 projects in eight ASEAN countries. These projects, being overseas economic and trade cooperation zones in nature, have attracted over 300 Chinese companies, achieving a total investment of $1.77 billion and an output of $9.02 billion. This is a new highlight of China-ASEAN cooperation that has worked for our mutual benefit. Our cooperation in production capacity has made solid steps forward and construction of a number of major projects, including railways, roads and power stations, has been started or completed. Our cultural and people-to-people exchanges have increased day by day, with 180,000 students studying in each other’s countries, and over 23 million mutual visits being made every year. China has by now become ASEAN’s biggest source of tourists. Such cooperation meets our own development needs and has brought tangible benefits to the people of both sides.




Looking ahead, China-ASEAN relations still enjoy vast prospects. China takes ASEAN as a significant force for regional peace and stability, regional integration and also for multi-polarity in the world. China will continue to give priority to ASEAN in its neighborhood diplomacy. China will continue to firmly support ASEAN’s community building, ASEAN’s centrality in regional cooperation as well as ASEAN playing a greater role in international and regional affairs. The theme of ASEAN for this year is “turning vision into reality”. China will work with ASEAN countries to strengthen strategic communication, push forward the implementation of the “2+7 cooperation framework” and enhance cultural and people-to-people exchanges. By so doing, we could inject fresh impetus to our cooperation, jointly build a closer China-ASEAN community of shared destiny and realize the vision of greater peace, stability, development and prosperity in the region.
