REUTERS/Carlos Garcia RawlinsBEIJING (Reuters) - President Xi Jinping said on Saturday that China is ready to step up global COVID-19 vaccine cooperation, and called for better international coordination on policies to facilitate movement of people. Pharmaceutical companies and research centres around the world are working on potential COVID-19 vaccines, with large global trials of several of the candidates involving tens of thousands of participants underway. “China is willing to strengthen cooperation with other countries in the research and development, production, and distribution of vaccines,” Xi told the G20 Riyadh Summit via video link. With that in mind, Xi said China would propose the creation of a mechanism by which travellers’ coronavirus test results were recognised internationally through digital health codes.

G20 leaders are concerned that the pandemic might further deepen global divisions between the rich and the poor. To do that, the European Union urged G20 leaders to quickly put more money into a global project for vaccines, tests and therapeutics called Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. Extending the temporary debt relief could encourage some additional countries to ask for forbearance, experts say, but private sector creditors must also agree to participate. Debt relief for Africa will be an important theme of the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021.
