It is Xi's first overseas trip after the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in October. The trip attracts much attention from the international community and will open up a new vision for diplomacy with Chinese characteristics in the new era.

In his speech at the APEC meeting, Xi will put forward China's solutions on how to adhere to the general trend of opening up and development in the Asia-Pacific region, explore new driving forces in the region, strengthen connectivity and draw a new blueprint of future cooperation, in a bid to map out a new economic cooperation vision with all relevant counterparts and inject Chinese energy into the prosperity and development of the whole Asia-Pacific family.

Vietnam and Laos are China's good neighbors and important partners, which are also socialist countries.

President Xi's visits to Vietnam and Laos reflect Beijing's high regard for promoting China-Vietnamese and China-Lao relations. The visits are expected to write new chapters of and inject positive impetus into bilateral relations as well as the mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation between China - Southeast Asian countries.
