We need to foster a free and open environment for trade andinvestment, and gear up innovation cooperation. Innovation of ourage is open in nature. Trade liberalization and investmentfacilitation are as important to innovation as fresh air is tohuman beings. China and Germany have both contributed to andbenefited from economic globalization. We both stand for freetrade. China has always approached trade issues from an overall andlong-term perspective. China has a long-standing trade deficit inboth goods and services with Germany, and we hope to see morebalanced trade between the two countries. Yet, we don't think thisshall be achieved through trade protectionism. Rather, we shouldexpand our trade by opening our markets to each other, and addressthe issue of trade imbalance in the course of development. Weencourage more imports of quality German goods and welcome Germaninvestment in China. We want to promote mutual openness on an equalfooting with Germany and all.
