Dear young friends,你们好!Namaste!

I am happy to learn that some outstanding young people from China and India come together today for China-India Youth Talks. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere congratulations to you!

China and India are neighbors, friends and partners. Both of us are oriental ancient civilizations, largest developing countries and emerging economies, we face the common task of growing the economy and improving people's livelihoods. I hope today’s discussion will help find out how we can learn from each other to realize common development.

In recent years, China-India relations have maintained a positive momentum. Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and India. We are willing to join hands with India to implement the consensus reached by our leaders and write a new chapter in China-India relations.

The sound bilateral relations have provided many opportunities for youth exchanges.We have set up a lot of interaction platforms for youth. Every year we organize two-way exchanges of 200-member youth delegation. Both governments have provided scholarship and encouraged academic and cultural cooperation. Over 20000 India youth are studying in China, and nearly 2000 Chinese youth are studying in India.

China has the largest population in the world, while India is a country with the largest youth population. Young people are most active and dynamic with the greatest imagination and creativity. I believe today’s dialogue between the most vigorous groups of our two peoples will bring out the best ideas and inspiration to enhance mutual understanding and further promote our friendship between the two great nations.

With these words, I wish today’s event a big success!

Thank you!
