SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday delivered a written speech titled "Meeting challenges with unity of purpose to write a new chapter for Asia-Pacific" at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit.

In the written speech, Xi pointed out that three decades ago, Asia-Pacific leaders followed the trend toward peace and development, and convened the inaugural APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, enabling Asia-Pacific development and economic globalization to embark on a fast track of growth, turning the region into a powerhouse for world economic growth and an anchor of stability for global development.

Over the past three decades, we have stayed committed to open regionalism, opening up and inclusiveness, learned from each other's strengths, exchanged needs, focused on development and jointly developed "the APEC Approach" based on the principles of voluntarism, consensus-building and incremental progress, capitalizing on the spirit of partnership featuring harmony without uniformity, and solidarity and mutual assistance, Xi said, adding that there is so much we can draw from this remarkable journey of Asia-Pacific cooperation. ■
