This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the founding of the 10-nation sub-regional grouping and is also the year in which both sides will focus on boosting two-way tourism.


Li said China will use this opportunity to bring relations between both sides to a new level.


Tourism plays a key role in China-Asean people-to-people ties, contributing to a deeper mutual understanding and pragmatic co-operation in various industries, said Li. China has become the biggest source of foreign tourists for Asean.

Duterte said co-operation between China and Asean sends a clear message to the world about the resolve of both sides to work together to accomplish their shared goals.



The Philippine leader said he expects closer relations between China and Asean to boost inclusive and sustainable development and lead to peace, security and development in the region.
