The G20 summit scheduled on Thursday night is anticipated to stabilize the world  economy and bolster the prevailing global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Chinese officials said at a press conference Thursday in Beijing, noting that China will continue to cooperate with the international community in this battle.   

China has effectively curbed the spread of COVID-19 epidemic, saved time, and accumulated experience for the world. Chinese President Xi Jinping attaches great importance to the global fight against the virus, Luo Zhaohui, vice foreign minister of China, said at the press conference. 

Xi has communicated with leaders of 22 countries and regions as well as officials from international organizations for 26 times over the phone on the mounting challenge of COVID-19 pandemic over the past two months and will attend a conference of G20 to discuss the pandemic situation, according to Luo. 

The international community is anticipating the G20 to promote joint efforts across the world to fight against COVID-19 and stabilize the economy. China is willing to work with G20 member economies to achieve effective results, Luo noted.
