Following President Xi’s trip to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum and a state visit to Switzerland in January, he reached Finland on 11 April before flying to the United States. Xi has used his overseas trips to deliver messages on how China views the world and the global economy at a time when populism and protectionism seem to be gathering strength. Xi used his Switzerland visit, and will now use his Finland trip to express China’s views that all global players, should fulfill their due responsibilities to build a prosperous and peaceful world, instead of telling China what its global duties are. Besides, Switzerland and Finland can also help China strengthen its domestic program for innovation. By 2050, China aims to become a world leader in science and technology, with its economy mainly driven by innovation. In Switzerland and Finland, China has perfect economic partners; Switzerland occupied the top spot in the World Intellectual Property Organization rankings, with Finland taking the fifth slot. And the two countries are willing to share knowledge and technology with China. Such openness offers great opportunities for Switzerland and Finland. Even though the two countries’ population is less than 10 million each, they can get access to China’s market of more than 1.3 billion consumers.And since innovation has become an integral part of the national policy, even Southwest China’s Guizhou province, a relatively poor region, has made Switzerland an example of its efforts to reduce poverty.
