Spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a routine press briefing after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison delivered a speech at the Aspen Security Forum on Wednesday, saying that Australia welcomes China's rise, and expects China to play a role in regional and global stability. He also said Australia has found no evidence showing it should restrict the popular short-video app TikTok.

"In light of Washington's trade concerns, China put into effect at the beginning of 2020 a new Foreign Investment Law that gives foreign companies greater access to the Chinese market, and offers greater guarantees in intellectual property protection," he said.
The bilateral FTA also impeccably responds to Cambodia's policy directions sketched in the Industrial Development Policy and the "Rectangular Strategy," the minister added.
Several million residents of Hong Kong signed a petition in support of the legislation, which demonstrates their longing for peace and stability in Hong Kong and their strong support for the national security legislation, according to Wang.

"These have been the sources of China's economic boom and Cambodia is using China as a role model in our economic development as well," he said.
"The U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said.
