“The BRICS Leaders’ Informal Meeting held during the G20 Hangzhou Summit achieved a great success,” said Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi at a press-conference on the outcomes of G20 Hangzhou Summit.

“Leaders of the five countries exchanged in-depth views on such topics as international political and economic situation, key agendas of the G20 Hangzhou Summit and BRICS cooperation and reached important consensus. All leaders spoke highly of China’s work as the rotating presidency of the G20, promised to jointly promote the implementation of the consensus reached in the Hangzhou Summit, decided unanimously to build a closer partnership among BRICS members, and agreed to facilitate fruitful results of the Goa BRICS Summit to be held this year.”

“The G20 Hangzhou Summit has given the answer to resolve weak global economic growth, that is, innovation and reform. Under our initiative and promotion, G20 member states focused on the agenda of innovative growth and jointly formulated the blueprint on innovative growth as well as three action plans for innovation, new industrial revolution and the digital economy. All sides have also drafted the joint document on structural reform, emphasizing that we should improve mid-long term growth potential of the world economy through structural reform. These results are first in the history of the G20 and expected to restore the vigor of global economic growth,” Jiechi added.
