《Touch Beijing》记者Maggie对上合峰会的报道


  The 18th Shanghai Corporation Organization Summit has successfully concluded in the coastal city of Qingdao over the weekend. Our reporter Maggie Wu was there and sent back this report.

  The summit in Qingdao is the SCO's first meetup since India and Pakistan became full members last year. With 17 years of steady progress, it has turned into one of the most successful regional organizations across the globe. 

  During the past years, the SCO members have signed the SCO Development Strategy 2025 and a string of other agreements, providing a strong and steady boost for the growth of the largest regional organization itself and of their respective economies. Official statistics show that the combined GDP of the SCO's six founding members reached more than 12 trillion U.S. dollars in 2017, increasing more than seven times from the 2001 level. During the same period, their total trade volume also grew more than seven-fold, reaching 4.9 trillion dollars last year.

  Against the backdrop of rising protectionism and isolationism in some parts of the world, SCO solidarity and cooperation now bear greater global importance. In parallel, the Belt and Road Initiative and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind have opened new prospects for SCO development.
