The above-mentioned principals expressed that regional organizations in LAC spoke highly of China's great development achievements and significant contributions to promoting the world economic development, and thanked China for offering long-term and strong support to LAC. They support the "Belt and Road" initiative, under the framework of which, they are willing to work together with China to promote LAC-China trade for the realization of diversification, and open up new space for cooperation in investment, communication, innovation, ocean, disaster reduction and prevention, infrastructure construction and other fields, in a bid to inject fresh impetus into the development of LAC-China relations.
