Xi urges building rule of law for reform, opening-up
Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, called on Monday for improving the rule of law regarding foreign entities to promote a better environment for the nation’s reform, development and stability.
Xi, also president, made the remark while presiding over a meeting of the Commission for Overall Law-Based Governance of the CPC Central Committee. He is also director of the commission.
The experiences drawn from reform and opening-up over the past 40 years have shown that work related to reform, development and stability will not succeed without the rule of law, Xi said. The further reform and opening-up goes, the more important the rule of law becomes, he added.
He stressed a high-quality lawmaking process in safeguarding and promoting healthy and sustainable economic growth, and said laws related to foreign investment should be made in a unified manner to meet the needs of building the new system of an open economy in the new era.
