Dear all students participating the 10th Summer Program of Xiamen Academy ofInternational Law from both China and abroad,


Good morning! Ladies and gentlemen! 


I am delighted to be here, representing the Chinese Society of International Economic Law(the CSIEL), to extend our respects and greetings to all esteemed leaders,distinguished guests, professors and experts as well as the students participating in thecelebration of the 10th anniversary of Xiamen Academy of International Law and theopening ceremony of the 10th Summer Program on international law. Today the weather in Xiamen is very hot, but I think, the cheerful mood of all participants and the atmosphere of this conference here are even hotter! Xiamen Academy of International Law has successfully experienced her 10 years historic development route, and in today’s opening ceremony the International Law Exchange and Research Project of China and Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization has also formally started,which indicates that the development of Xiamen Academy of International Law and her Summer Program on international law will step upto a higher new level, and the Xiamen Academy will in the future make greater contribution both to the development of international law research in China and Asian-African countries and to the training of high level international law talents in these countries.  Therefore, please allow me to be here, on behalf of the Chinese Society of International Economic Law, to extend our hearty and warm congratulations to the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Xiamen Academy of International Law and the opening of the 10th Summer Program on International Law, as well as to the official starting of the Program of International Law Exchange and Research of China and Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization!


The Chinese Society of International Economic Law is a nationwide academicorganization which was formally established in the year of 1987, her aim and purpose of this academic organization are to solidify the scholars and experts in the field of international economic law in China to promote the research of international economic law and the foster of international law talents in this country, as well as the development of Chinese international economic law, to contribute Chinese law scholars wisdom for establishing a fair and reasonable international economic new order. Based on the Law School of Xiamen University, the CSIEL has in the past 10 years kept a close cooperative relationship with the Xiamen Academy of International Law, many well-known professors and experts from the CSIEL have been invited to deliver lectures here to the students of the summer program of Xiamen Academy in the past 10 years, which reflected the Chinese elements and features of the teaching contents of the Summer Programs of Xiamen Academy. The Chinese Society of International Economic Law will continue to develop the long-term cooperative relationship with Xiamen Academy, to perform our obligations and make our contribution in promoting the development of international law, in particular international economic law.


At present, the extensive and deep development of economic globalization has further intensified various contradictions existing in the old international economic order on the one hand, and at the same time also caused a lot of new legal problems which aredifficult to solve under current international legal rules. In order to reform the unfair old international economic order and to reestablish new international economic rules which are suitable to the digital economic enviornment and the conditions of global economicintegration, the international economic scholars from China and other developing countries should further strengthen their exchange and cooperation to jointly contribute our wisdoms and strength for establishment of a fair and reasonable new international economic legal order. We have a long way to go to realize our common aims, but the program of international law exchange and research of China and Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization which is started today here in Xiamen Academy of International Law, is a important first step towards to the realization of our common aim. We believe that, under the mutual attention and support from both Chinese Government and the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization, with the positive assistance from the related Chinese governmental agencies and the academic groups such as the Chinese Society of International Law, Chinese Society of International Private Law and Chinese Society of International Economic Law, benefited from the stronger support of the hosts of Xiamen University and the People’s Government of Xiamen City, and through the hard working of Xiamen Academy of International Law, the high level program of international exchange and research will certainly achieve its expected success and effects. 


Finally, we heartily wish the Xiamen Academy will on the current base realize newdevelopment, and make a greater contribution to the exchange and research of international law between China and foreign countries, as well as the training of high level international law younger talents! We wish the Program on International Law Exchange and Research of China and Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization and the 10th Summer Program on International Law of Xiamen Academy a fullsuccess!


Thanks to you all!
