At the invitation of Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, Chairman of the Munich Security Conference (MSC), NISCSS President Wu Shicun attended the 55th edition of MSC in Munich, Germany from 15 to 17 February 2019. Dr. Wu participated in various programs such as the plenary session, a panel discussion titled “Reshuffling the Pieces: Building a New Multilateral Order”, a roundtable discussion on “Bridging Troubled Waters: De-conflicting the South China Sea Disputes”, and a “Belted? China, Europe and the 16+1 Cooperation”-themed lunch discussion organized by the Center for China and Globalization. At these events, he exchanged views in great depth with other participants on South China Sea-related issues, and took interviews with the Xinhua News Agency and Northern German Broadcasting on topics including the global order, China’s international responsibility and the South China Sea disputes.


This MSC 2019 brought into spotlight themes such as the European Union's self-assertion, transatlantic cooperation, great power competition, as well as topics of international concerns such as climate change and its effect on security policy, counterterrorism, arms control, nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, and the maintenance of regional stability. More than 600 senior security policy makers and experts around the globe attended the conference, including about 40 state leaders, nearly 20 heads of influential international organizations as well as more than 100 ministerial level officials.


Yang Jiechi, Member of Political Bureau of CPC Central Committee and Director of the Office of the Central Leading Group for Foreign Affairs, delivered a keynote speech expounding China’s views, stance and policy of international security, multilateralism and international cooperation at the conference.


Founded in 1963, the MSC has developed into one of the leading forum for the debate of international security policy.
