China to assist in SE Asian upgrade

Hits:  UpdateTime:2016-09-12 11:10:24

Vice-premier says China has key role to play in investment and trade ties

China is willing to help drive industrial upgrading in Southeast Asian nations in

the form of direct investment, projects, technological cooperation, and imports

and exports of equipment, Vice-Premier Zhang Gaoli said on Sunday.

"China, with its advantages in capital, technology, engineering and management

for infrastructure construction, will help ASEAN countries to elevate their

industrialization based on demand in different countries," Zhang said at the opening

ceremony of the 13th China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) in Nanning, capital of the

Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

He said China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)

should establish closer ties with an e-commerce trade platform being built in Nanning.

Jack Ma, chairman of e-commerce giant Alibaba Group, said during the four-day

event that the company will expand its investment in the Southeast Asian countries,

using Guangxi as a springboard for regional development.

Alibaba, the world's largest online retailer, has taken a controlling stake in Southeast

Asian online retailer Lazada to tap into the lucrative consumer market in countries

such as Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand.

"The development of online business not only promotes more consumption,

but has helped to create nearly 30 million jobs in China" said Ma.

"I believe that Southeast Asian countries will gain great development opportunities

from e-commerce," he said.

At the same time, the Belt and Road Initiative under the framework of the

China-proposed Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk

Road, also provides opportunities for energy cooperation.

China General Nuclear Power Group, the country's largest nuclear operator in

terms of capacity, said it would follow the Belt and Road Initiative to seek

further business development in Southeast Asia.

Chen Jian, general manager of Fangchenggang Nuclear Power Co Ltd, CGN's

subsidiary, said the establishment of its regional headquarters in Malaysia

shows its determination to push forward cooperation in Southeast Asian countries.

"Currently we have many projects in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and other

countries in the field of clean energy," he said.

"It's of mutual benefit, as it not only helps meet the energy demand but it drives

up the whole value chain for ASEAN countries in terms of technology and

equipment manufacturing through our cooperation."

China is ASEAN's largest trading partner, while ASEAN is China's third largest.

Bilateral trade between China and ASEAN has increased considerably over the

past 25 years since the two sides established dialogue relations in 1991, growing

18.5 percent year-on-year from $7.96 billion to $472.16 billion last year.

China and ASEAN have pledged to further expand bilateral trade to $1 trillion

by 2020. To achieve the goal, China and ASEAN signed an agreement late last

year to upgrade the ASEAN-China Free Trade Area to further liberalize and

facilitate bilateral trade and investment. The agreement officially came into

 force in July.
