President Xi Jinping has made China the hub of global free trade, vowing to keep its ‘oversized’ economy open and warning against protectionism in a global economy gutted by the Covid-19 pandemic.Supported by the signing of the world’s largest trade pact over the weekend, Xi said Asia-Pacific was the “forerunner of global growth” in a world hit by “multiple challenges,” including the coronavirus.

He vowed “openness” to trade and rejected any possibility of “decoupling” the Chinese economy – in his only comments pointing to the hostile trade policy of the US administration of Donald Trump, which has hit China with tariffs and technological restrictions.
