He called on countries to implement strong and effective fiscal and monetary policies, better coordinate financial regulation and jointly keep the global industrial and supply chains stable.
Xi said a virus respects no borders, stressing that all must work together to build the strongest global network of control and treatment.
"The outbreak we are battling is our common enemy," he noted.
