DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- China's new round of comprehensive reforms would provide the world with more "Chinese opportunities," said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
China's new reform drive would not only mark a new era for its own development, but have extensive and positive impact on the world, Wang said Friday in a special session on China during the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting.
An increasingly prosperous China would gift the world with more "Chinese opportunities" in development, namely market opportunities, investment opportunities, growth opportunities and cooperation opportunities, he said.
China would remain committed to the path of peaceful development, contribute more "Chinese power" to world peace, undertake more international obligations, and play an even more active and productive role in resolving hot issues, he said.
Noting that Chinese President Xi Jinping had outlined the vision of the Chinese dream, which was to achieve the revitalization of the Chinese nation, Wang said the new round of reform launched in China was the right path to this goal.
As an important member of the international community, China would also work with other countries and make its due contribution to the development and progress of mankind, Wang said.
On the same day, Wang met Klaus Schwab, WEF founder and executive chairman, and voiced his hope that the WEF would continue its focus on and support for China's reform process.
China attached great importance to the WEF, said Wang, noting that Chinese Premier Li Keqiang had posted an article on the WEF's official website on the occasion of the annual meeting.
Cooperation between China and the WEF had been going hand in hand with the process of China's reform and opening-up, he noted, saying China had entered a new phase of the strategy this year and the new reform drive would have deep implications for the country and for the world.
Schwab commended the long-term and friendly cooperation between his organization and China, and expressed gratitude for Beijing's consistent support.
The WEF chief said the organization was willing to take an active part in China's reform and opening-up and to engage in closer cooperation.
Meanwhile, Wang also met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Davos and expressed the hope that China and Israel would advance their economic and technological cooperation.
Wang said he hoped to see more concrete achievements from China-Israel cooperation in high technology, environment protection and energy as quickly as possible.
Netanyahu spoke highly of the momentum in the bilateral relationship. He suggested that both sides explore new fields of cooperation, such as in infrastructure construction.
Wang and Netanyahu also exchanged views on issues of mutual concern, such as the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and Iran's nuclear program.
The Chinese foreign minister traveled to the snow-covered Swiss town following his attendance at an international peace conference on Syria in the southwestern Swiss town of Montreux.
