Remarks of the Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Canada on the Globe and Mail's Smearing against China's efforts to fight against COVID-19
2020/03/28

Recently, the Globe and Mail published a signed article by its Asia Correspondent entitled “China’s manufacturing industry struggles to keep up with demand for ventilators, masks amid coronavirus outbreak”. The article cited certain interviewees’ irresponsible remarks, smearing that in the midst of the outbreak in China, “the Chinese government is getting more and more actively involved in taking control of the suppy chain in China”, and using administrative tools to “ensure that every mask was used for domestic government priorities and suppied for foreign countries hand-picked by Beijing”. The above report is completely inconsistent with the facts. We deplore and strongly oppose that.

Since the outbreak of the epidemic, China has always maintained that the international community should jointly safeguard an open world economy and ensure the stability of global supply chains and industrial chains. While meeting the domestic demand, China has acted in an open, transparent and highly responsible manner in carrying out the international cooperation in epidemic prevention and control, and we are trying to facilitate the procurement of medical supplies through commercial channels by all countries including Canada. At the Extraordinary G20 Leaders’ Summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that China will increase its supply of active pharmaceutical ingredients, daily necessities, and anti-epidemic and other supplies to the international market to jointly keep the global industrial and supply chains stable.

We urge the Globe and Mail to abandon prejudice, respect facts, and stop making irresponsible remarks against China’s efforts to fight against the epidemic.
