Xi made the remarks when delivering a keynote speech at the opening of the BRICS Business Forum which gathered a record 1,200 attendees, including representatives from nearly 80 Fortune 500 multinationals.

"The past decade has not only seen solid progress in the BRICS cooperation mechanism; it has also witnessed the unfolding of all-round reform and opening up in China and its rapid economic and social development," Xi told the forum.

He said China's economic aggregate grew by 239 percent over these ten years, and its total volume of exports and imports in goods rose by 73 percent.

The country has become the world's second largest economy, the lives of its 1.3 billion-plus people have been significantly improved, and China has made increasingly greater contribution to both regional and global economic development, Xi said.
