Mr. Wang Guanghua pointed out in his speech that the current world economy is still in the process of recovery, and the international mining market has become more volatile and uncertain. In the face of unprecedented challenges, it is more important than ever for all countries in the world to strengthen confidence and work together to seek cooperation space and development opportunities in mining industry. As the world's largest producer, consumer and trading nation of mineral products, China is ready to work with all parties to promote the sound development of mining industry, and jointly promote the recovery, growth and sustainable development of the world economy through opening-up and win-win cooperation. To this end, Wang put forward three proposals: First, implement the sustainable development goal and jointly provide resources for economic growth. We will improve the production and supply capacity of important mineral resources, promote the construction of green mines in an orderly manner, increase the exploration and development of new energy sources and new materials minerals, accelerate the construction of a supply and demand docking mechanism for important mineral products, and build a global mining industry chain and supply chain with complementary advantages. Second, we will vigorously promote the research, development, application and integration of new theories, new technologies, new methods, new processes and new equipment in mineral resources exploration and development. We will actively implement policies and measures to facilitate mining trade and investment, and vigorously promote the innovation of mining administration system and mechanism. Third, strengthen cooperation in key areas and jointly promote the improvement of the global mining governance system. We welcome the deep participation of all countries in promoting the high-quality development of the "the Belt and Road", promoting the docking and mutual recognition of mining strategies, policies, standards and norms, promoting the in-depth cooperation of global mining enterprises, and promoting the transformation, upgrading and sustainable development of mining industry.
