China and Saudi Arabia: Working together for bright future

Saudi Gazette - Wednesday, October 01, 2014

On the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, on behalf of the staff of the Chinese Embassy in the Kingdom and myself, I would like to extend warm congratulations and sincere wishes to the Chinese community living and working in Saudi Arabia. I would also like to pay tribute to the leadership of the Kingdom and its friendly people for their care and contribution to Sino-Saudi relations.

Since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, the Chinese government and its people have been working strenuously to build their homeland. Now, China’s GDP exceeds $9 trillion which ranks second in the world. China is the largest trader in goods with the highest foreign exchange reserves in the world. We are also witnessing significant developments in the fields of industry, agriculture, education, science, health, tourism and etc. With political stability, prosperous economy and progressing society, China is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. During the first half of 2014, China’s economic growth rate remained high at 7.4%.
