President Xi Jinping's speeches at three recent key global meetings as well as China's proposals announced by Xi have drawn praise in the international community for their wisdom in helping walk the world out of crisis and for charting future growth after the pandemic, senior Chinese diplomats said.

They made the observation after Xi attended and addressed three major multilateral events, from Tuesday to Sunday-the 12th BRICS Summit, the 27th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting and the 15th G20 Leaders' Summit.

The gatherings were held via video link at a time when the number of people infected by COVID-19 has exceeded 57 million worldwide and the global economy has fallen into a severe recession.

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi noted that a total of 23 important initiatives, propositions and measures have been put forward by Xi during the recent slew of key events to cover agenda items such as epidemic prevention and control, economic and social development, international order in the post-epidemic era, global economic governance and building a community with a shared future for mankind.

Xi also explained in detail the connotation of China's new development paradigm and sent a clear signal that China will promote its own high-quality development while opening wider to the outside world, which Wang said has injected strong confidence and strength into the international community.

In the battle against the virus, Xi stressed international cooperation and shared China's experience in using digital technology for epidemic control and economy recovery.

The president's propositions and initiatives have provided a boost to international anti-epidemic cooperation and added confidence to the struggle of all mankind, which is in sharp contrast to the words and actions that politicized the epidemic and stigmatized the virus, Wang said.

To boost recovery and development of the world economy, Xi proposed a package of solutions by stressing the need to adhere to development with openness, develop the digital economy, and push forward inclusive and green development.

On the global economic governance system, Xi spoke at the G20 summit about promoting free trade and fair competition, building a strong global financial safety net, and said that China is willing to explore and formulate global digital governance rules.

Wang said that the "China solution "proposed by Xi not only fully reflects the new requirements of China's high-quality development, but also fully conforms to the direction of world economic growth and meets the interests of the people of all countries.

In the first session of the G20 summit, Xi reaffirmed the country's commitment to implement the grouping's Debt Service Suspension Initiative, which aims at relieving debt burden of less-developed countries.

Wang Xiaolong, director general of the Foreign Ministry's Department of International Economic Affairs, said that by far, China is the leading G20 contributor in terms of implementing the initiative, and the country will continue to work with other parties for realizing its extension.

At Friday's APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, Xi said that China will consider joining the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact.
