We should jointly advance the construction of open and transparent regional free trade arrangements while safeguarding the authority and effectiveness of the multilateral trading system, which is also conducive to the peace, development and cooperation of the region and the world. China will continuously carry forward supply-side structural reform, firmly expand opening-up, and the gate of opening-up will only be wider and wider. China is open to all free trade arrangements that are conducive to promoting regional economic integration.

Li Keqiang stressed that during my visit to New Zealand this time, China and New Zealand reached importance consensus and achieved important outcomes on developing China-New Zealand comprehensive strategic partnership and coping with uncertainties in external environment with the stability of development and cooperation. Both sides will make joint efforts to deepen political mutual trust, well integrate economic development strategies, take negotiations on the upgrade of bilateral free trade agreement as an opportunity to push bilateral trade for expansion and upgrade, and continuously intensify people-to-people and cultural exchanges, so as to make China-New Zealand friendship take deeper root in people's hearts and pass on from generation to generation.

Bill English expressed that Premier Li Keqiang's visit this time vigorously promoted the development of New Zealand-China relations and practical cooperation in various fields. The booming development of China's economy is an important opportunity for New Zealand. The development of bilateral relations brings tangible benefits to the two peoples.
