Thank you also to President Lin for the invitation to join you today and the privilege of offering this keynote address. It is a great honour.

I am delighted to be back in Beijing and deeply grateful for the warm hospitality I have received here over the years. Indeed, Beijing truly embodies the spirit and optimism of this Forum. I hope my remarks this morning continue in that spirit. In particular, I want to speak to the Forum’s sub-theme: mutual trust, cooperation, and sharing.
