Globalization, multilateralism and global governance should be championed and optimized in the post COVID-19 pandemic world, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a news briefing on Sunday.

When asked that the world may never be the same after the pandemic, Wang said the development of human history is punctuated with triumph against major disasters. "So long as we make the right choices and follow the right path, we will embrace a bright future," he said.

The right choices include making the globalization process more open, inclusive, and beneficial for everyone involved. "We need to mitigate the unbalanced regional developmental issues and inequality created by globalization," he said. "But the issue of globalization needs to be solved with globalization."

Multilateralism and global governance should also be upheld, as the pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities of many countries' public health systems, industrial chains and administrative process.

"It is an urgent task to improve global governance," Wang said. Countries can do so by bolstering and capitalizing on the roles of the United Nation and specialized institutions such as the World Health Organization. More coordinated macropolicies and international laws can also help.

"The world may not go back to where it was, but China will not stop its progress," he said.
