Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan said Friday the nations of the world can rely on "wisdom and courage" to overcome the difficulties of the fragile global economic recovery.
Wang made the remarks at the opening ceremony of the 11th Western China International Fair and 3rd western China forum on international cooperation in the southwestern city of Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
The nations of the world should boost cooperation, said Wang.
"China has just mapped out its economic and social development blueprint for the next five years," said Wang, who insisted China's development benefits not only Chinese people but also brings opportunities to the wider world.
He said China will resolutely stick to the path of opening-up and reform.
The Chinese government has pledged to enhance the development of China's western regions.
He urged western regions to open wider to the outside world and expand border trade.
