Chinese Premier Li Keqiang sent congratulatory message to CAYOT 2017
People-to-people exchange is one of the key pillars supporting China-Australia relations. I’m glad to see that China and Australia have become major tourist destinations for each other. Last year the two-way personnel exchange between us reached nearly two million visits. I hope we will make the best of the tourism year to broaden and deepen our communication and cooperation in various areas and further consolidate the popular basis for the all-round development of our bilateral relations.
Both China and Australia respect the cultural diversity of the world. We would like to join hands with Australia, based on our sound diplomatic relations in the past 45 years, to protect world peace, enhance regional stability, and produce more fruits from win-win cooperation and more benefits for both Chinese and Australian people by continuing to uphold principles of equality, inclusiveness, openness and mutual learning.
