Wang Yi: Diplomatic Savvy
In 2016, Chinese foreign policies became more active, confident and mature. China hosted the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, which promoted global economic governance and reforms. China enhanced the establishment of a Free Trade Area in the Asia-Pacific region during the 2016 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Lima. China is also shouldering more responsibility to address global climate change. Relations between China and the Philippines made a positive breakthrough and the issue of the South China Sea has merged back onto a healthier dialogue track. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has received much of the credit.
