Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to deliver a speech on Sunday at the 18th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Qingdao, a coastal city in east China's Shandong Province.

On the "Shanghai Spirit":

On openness and cooperation:

President Xi Jinping's words of wisdom at SCO


We need to expand external exchanges and cooperation, which is a driving force of our growth. “Jade can be polished by stones from other hills.” To expand external exchanges and bring in new members serves the need of a growing SCO that is inherently open and inclusive.

On governance:

President Xi Jinping's words of wisdom at SCO


We need to take common development and prosperity as our goal."The primary task of governance is to enrich the people." Given the increasing uncertainties in the world economy and resurgence of trade protectionism in some countries, the SCO should, in a win-win spirit, tap the potential of regional cooperation and jointly create opportunities for cooperation to increase the member states’ inherent development momentum and their capability to fend off risks.

On cultural exchange:

President Xi Jinping's words of wisdom at SCO

We need to increase understanding between our people, which is the very purpose of our work. “People, if united, will be stronger.” The SCO’s future, above all, is in the hands of the people of the SCO members. We need to support friendly exchanges between business communities, academia, media groups, think tanks, art groups and other communities, and expand our cultural and people-to-people exchanges to all dimensions. We need to enhance mutual understanding and traditional friendship between our people, so as to consolidate public support for the SCO development. We should actively explore new channels of cultural and people-to-people exchanges, build up the SCO's capability of international communication, and promote its ideals and principles. We should let the world know the "stories of the SCO" and hear the "voice of the SCO."
