BOAO, Hainan - Chinese president Xi Jinping Monday called on entrepreneurs attending the Boao Forum for Asia to form a united voice and vision for promoting the common development of Asia and the world.
As an important force for creating jobs and increasing wealth, entrepreneurs will greatly impact the economic development of Asia and the world, Xi said during a roundtable dialogue with representatives of about 30 well-known enterprises from China and overseas.
Entrepreneurs take up about two thirds of the number of participants at the forum.
Xi praised their speeches and discussions at the on-going annual conference, which will help promote cooperation within Asia as well as between the continent and other regions.
"We hope to realize the common development of Asia and the world," Xi said.
Yasuo Fukuda, chairman of the forum's board of directors and former Japanese Prime Minister, also attended the dialogue, an important part of the annual conference in Boao, a coastal town in South China's Hainan province.
