Vice Minister Qu stated that this year Chinese President Xi Jinping reiterated China’s position on supporting, safeguarding and promoting the multilateral trading system on a number of occasions. The MOA will provide active facilitation for the success of MC11. Vice Minister Qu appreciated the great coordination efforts of Argentina as the host country and briefed about China’s fundamental position on agriculture and fishery subsidies negotiations. He emphasized that the negotiations should take full account of the concerns of developing members relying on large number of smallholder farmers and subsistence agriculture, and safeguard the development objective and outcomes of the Doha Round.


Susana Malcorra thanked the Chinese Government for its facilitation to the MC11 and the trust on her. Argentina appreciates China’s development path that underlines mutual benefits, openness and win-win principle. She also hoped that China could exert its great influence as a major country to secure the success of the MC11, convey positive signals to the outside world and safeguard the multilateral trading system.
