There can't be any better venue. Boao, once a barely known fishing hamlet in China's southernmost Hainan Province, has today become one of the Asian country's gateways to the wider world with its annual global gathering that is gaining clout.
Chinese conglomerate HNA Group announced on Monday in Sanya, South China's Hainan province, a new strategic alliance with Singaporean firm GLP Logistic Properties Ltd, and the two sides will together forge a global logistics ecological network.
Chinese leaders Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji and Han Zheng attended the fourth plenary meeting of the first session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC).
The booklet, published by the People's Publishing House, is available at Xinhua Bookstore outlets across the country.
Both sides will integrate their advantages and assets to cooperate in all areas of the logistics system, according to the announcement. They also plan to carry out further collaborations to set up a fund management platform and manage immovable assets.
If that is true, then the question is why so many Chinese and Koreans still feel strongly that the Japanese apologies have never been sincere or accepted. It's not just because Japanese politicians often use half-hearted words, such as regret, when they should be condemning the atrocities, but also what Japan has done and is doing, such as revising the history of WWII in its textbooks.
