BEIJING, Nov. 13 (Saba)- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday said China's "comprehensively deepening reforms" will not only provide a strong impetus for the country's progress but also offer opportunities to other nations around the world.
Xi told visiting President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi that the reforms will also inject vitality into China-Yemen relations.

The objective of the reforms is to improve and develop a socialist system with Chinese characteristics and push on with modernization of the country's governing system and capabilities, Xi said.
China will speed up the development of a socialist market economy, democracy, cultural development, social harmony and ecological progress so all people can enjoy more fruits of development fairly, he added.
