At the invitation of President Wen Min, President Xi Jinping will make a state visit to Myanmar from January 17-18, Mr Luo said. This is President Xi Jinping's first foreign trip this year, a visit to China after a period of 19 years, and coincides with the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Myanmar. Myanmar is a friendly neighbor of China. At present, the two countries have a high degree of political mutual trust, deep economic cooperation, close cooperation on international and regional issues,\" cell wave \"friendship has been renewed, and folk exchanges are running high. In the 70 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties, China-Myanmar relations have continued to develop on the basis of mutual respect, mutual trust and mutual assistance, and have set a model for harmonious coexistence and win-win cooperation among large and small countries. China insists on not interfering in Myanmar's internal affairs and firmly supports Myanmar in safeguarding its national dignity and legitimate rights and interests. On the issue of domestic peace and reconciliation in Myanmar, China urges peace talks and plays a constructive role. Myanmar has always firmly supported China on issues involving Taiwan, Tibet and Xinjiang. Myanmar actively responds to and participates in the \"Belt and Road\" cooperation initiative. China-Myanmar economic corridor and major project cooperation led to employment and economic development along the Myanmar side, and greatly improved the living standards of the local people.

The first is to sum up the historical experience of the exchanges between the two countries, plan a blueprint for future development, further enrich the connotation of bilateral relations, construct a community of destiny between China and Myanmar, and open a new era of Sino-Myanmar relations. Second, it is necessary to deepen high-quality co-construction of \"Belt and Road\" cooperation, promote the transformation of the economic corridor between China and Myanmar from conceptual planning to substantive construction, and realize the positive progress of major projects supporting and connecting the three ends of the corridor for the benefit of the two countries and the people of the two countries. Third, by organizing cultural tourism year and other activities to expand cultural exchanges and consolidate the basis of friendly public opinion between the two countries.
