Xi's visit to advance ties in South Asia

Hits:  UpdateTime:2016-10-11 16:24:35

President Xi Jinping's upcoming trip to Cambodia, Bangladesh and India will be "an

important diplomatic activity" aimed at boosting ties with South Asia, a senior

diplomat said on Monday.

Kong Xuanyou, assistant foreign minister, said at a news conference in Beijing that

it will be the first state visit of a Chinese president to Bangladesh in 30 years. It will

also be Xi's first visit to Cambodia since becoming China's top leader in late 2012.

Xi will make state visits to Cambodia and Bangladesh on Thursday and Friday,

according to the Foreign Ministry, and then fly to Goa, India, for the Eighth BRICS

Summit over the weekend.

"Bangladesh is China's important partner in the South Asian and the Indian Ocean

region, and the visit will be a milestone for the China-Bangladesh relationship," he said.

During Xi's visits, China will sign a number of cooperative documents with Cambodia

and Bangladesh regarding the Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by Xi in 2013, which

focuses on improving infrastructure and boosting interconnection, Kong said.

Xi already visited some South Asian countries, including India and Sri Lanka, in 2014

and Pakistan last year.

Li Baodong, vice-foreign minister, said the BRICS Summit in India is expected to boost

confidence in global economic growth.

"Through this meeting, China expects to send a positive signal of higher

confidence," he said.

China also hopes to raise the influence of BRICS members and developing countries

in international affairs, to safeguard peace and stability, he added.

During the summit, Xi will meet in bilateral talks with leaders from other BRICS

members, including Russia's President Vladimir Putin and India's Prime Minister

Narendra Modi, to reach consensus on global governance, Li said.

Jiang Jingkui, director of the Center of South Asian Studies at Peking University, said

that the South Asian region, which is not a traditional focus for China, has become

increasingly important in recent years, especially after China put forward the Belt

and Road Initiative in 2013.

"To some extent, the South Asian region is also one of China's backyards," he said,

adding that northern South Asia is a key part of the (Silk Road Economic) Belt and

southern South Asia of the (21st Century Maritime Silk) Road.

Bangladesh has been eager to advance the China-India-Myanmar-Bangladesh

economic corridor, and Xi's visit will bring more practical cooperative results for the

two countries, Jiang said.

Jin Yong, deputy head of the Communication University of China's School of Foreign

Studies, said that the large South Asian population means huge market potential for

China, an important prospect given the current global economic sluggishness.

Densely populated Bangladesh has more than 150 million people, while India has the

world's second-largest population, he said.

Many Chinese textile companies have moved their factories from South China to

Bangladesh to save labor costs, and such cooperation has bound the economies of the

two countries more tightly, he added.
