According to Zhao Chenxin, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, plans for a dual-circulation economy that would require more domestic production and consumption do not indicate the country is looking to scale back on globalization.

According to Zhao, some nations are attempting to isolate supply chains and build compact yards with high walls. "We think the historical trend will continue to be that of openness and cooperation."

According to Zhao, the idea that China wants to develop as an independent economic power is misunderstood. He further said that no country can move forward by closing its borders.
