Liu He stressed that the agreement between the two sides must be equal and mutually beneficial, and that China will never compromise on major principles. At present, the two sides have reached important consensus in many aspects, but the three core concerns of China must be addressed. One is to abolish all tariffs. Tariffs are the starting point of trade disputes between the two sides. If an agreement is to be reached, all the tariffs imposed must be abolished. Second, trade procurement figures should be realistic. Both sides have reached a consensus on trade procurement figures in Argentina and should not change them at will. Third, to improve the text balance, any country has its own dignity, the text of the agreement must be balanced, there are still some key issues to be discussed. Since last year, the negotiations between the two sides have been repeated several times and some twists and turns have taken place, which is normal. In the course of the ongoing negotiations between the two sides, it is irresponsible to accuse retrogression at will.
Liu He said that the most important thing for China is to do well in its own affairs. Chinas domestic market demand is huge, and the promotion of supply-side structural reform will lead to the overall improvement of product and enterprise competitiveness. There is still ample room for fiscal and monetary policies. Chinas economic prospects are very optimistic. In the course of the development of a large country, it is a good thing to have some twists and turns, which can test our ability. Under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core, as long as we have firm confidence and work together, we will not be afraid of any difficulties, and we will surely maintain a good situation of sustained and healthy economic development.
