Global Partnerships

At the Central Conference on Work Relating to Foreign Affairs in November 2014, Xi Jinping urged China to make more friends under the principle of nonalignment, so as to build a global network of partnerships. He has talked about global partnerships more than once in his speeches.

As stated in the report to the 19th CPC National Congress, China has actively developed global partnerships and expanded the convergence of interests with other countries. China will promote coordination and cooperation with other major countries and work to build a framework for major- country relations featuring overall stability and balanced development. China will deepen relations with its neighbors in accordance with the principle of amity, sincerity, mutual benefit, and inclusiveness and the policy of forging friendship and partnership with its neighbors. China will, guided by the principle of upholding justice while pursuing shared interests and the principle of sincerity, real results, affinity, and good faith, work to strengthen solidarity and cooperation with other developing countries.

We will strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the political parties and organizations of other countries, and encourage people's congresses, CPPCC committees, the military, local governments, and people's organizations to engage in exchanges with other countries.

In recent years, China has been making great efforts to build a global network of cooperation that encourages dialogue instead of confrontation, and helps forge partnerships instead of antagonistic blocs.

As of May 2018, China had established various forms of partnership relations with more than 100 countries and international organizations. China's circle of friends has been expanding globally.
