The Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) 2024 Annual Conference ended on Friday in Boao, a coastal city in the Chinese island province of Hainan, with a series of consensuses reached.

“All parties are more aware of the challenges facing the world today,” said Li Baodong, secretary-general of the BFA, at the closing press conference, adding that all countries are facing common challenges, including slow global economic recovery and the persistence of regional conflicts. “Only by working together can we better deal with challenges.”

Asia is leading a new era of sustainable development, and China is the pillar of sustainable development of the world economy in the post-COVID-19 era, he noted.

This year’s BFA annual conference was held from March 26 to 29, with the theme “Asia and the World: Common Challenges, Shared Responsibilities”. The event attracted around 2,000 delegates from more than 60 countries and regions and more than a thousand journalists from almost 40 countries and regions.
