Minister Yang welcomed all the teachers and students participating in the event, saying that countries in the world, more than ever, need to understand each other better, promote people-to-people bonds, enhance dialogues among civilsations, and achieve common goals. He noted that China is implementing a new development paradigm and new development concept, which will provide unlimited opportunities to the world.
