China is ready to discuss with the participants of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization creation of free trade zone. The head of the State Council of China Li Keqiang announced today at a meeting of the Council of Heads of Government of the organization.
According to him, the cross-border supervision and infrastructure must be integrated. China is ready to promote together with all countries the trade and the movement of investments.
"We are open to cooperation and ready to discuss the creation of a free trade zone. This will help to remove trade barriers. They hinder the development of countries and the world economy," Li Keqiang said.
He added that the SCO countries should expand trade and draw attention to innovative cooperation.
"We are ready to cooperate in the line of small and medium-sized businesses. This will give a new impetus to relations between the two countries. We should not close the door. This will bring harm to others and to ourselves," Li Keqiang said.
