Xi Jinping pointed out, since the establishment of diplomatic ties, Dominican Republic has firmly upheld the one-China policy and prioritized its relations with China on its diplomacy agenda, which is highly appreciated by China. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the two countries have supported each other and shared weal and woe. China will continue to provide as much support as its capacity allows for Dominican Repblic's fight against the virus. Xi believes, under your leadership, Dominican Republic will defeat the pandemic at an early date. China stands ready to work with Dominican Republic to seek greater development of the bilateral relationship and lift it to a higher level.
Xi Jinping emphasized, the Communist Party of China (CPC) will celebrate its 100th anniversary. Standing on the people's side represents the fundamental political stance of the CPC, which is highly consistent with the "people-centered" governance philosophy of Dominican Repblic. China is willing to communicate with Dominican Republic on governance philosophy, deepen political trust and promote common development. As this year is the start of the 14th Five-year Plan period, China will open its door wider at a higher level, which will bring more opportunities for bilateral cooperation. China welcomes Dominican Republic to export more distinctive agricultural products to China, and supports Chinese enterprises in investing and doing business in Dominica.

The medical supplies and vaccines provided by China for Dominican Republic have played a key role in its fight against the virus, for which Dominican Republic expresses sincere gratitude.
