We hope to strengthen cooperation with SCO countries in deepening industrial cooperation, expanding trade, cooperation in scientific and technological innovation, and building logistics channels. We hope to leverage the role of platforms such as the Qingdao International Energy Exchange, promote the implementation of a number of cooperation projects, deepen cooperation in key areas such as industrial and supply chains, and build an even closer SCO community with a shared future.

We believe that the timing is right.
