The meeting was chaired by Zhang Xiaoming, a member of the Academic Committee, GVI. Participants from the GVI side included Ren Libo, Founder and President; Ouyang Wei, Deputy Director of the Academic Committee; Zhu Junwei, Director of the Center for U.S. Studies; He An, Secretary General; and Yang Xiaotong, Head of Research of the International Cooperation Department.


Experts from both sides believe that China and Pakistan have long been seeking development and prosperity together and working hand in hand to meet challenges; their friendship is deeply rooted in the hearts of the two nations. In the future, the two countries should coordinate development and security, and carry out cooperation at a higher level, in a wider scope, and at a deeper level. In this regard, it also requires active efforts from the civil forces of both sides. Through dialogues and exchanges, the civil groups and independent think tanks can make greater contributions to the peace and prosperity of the two countries, and even the region, and work to push the China-Pakistan all-weather strategic partnership to a new height.
