UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Tuesday that globalization is universal and the world should not make globalization fair by isolationism, protectionism or exclusion.

"I am deeply convinced that globalization is universal and it has brought many benefits such as the integration of economy and trade," Guterres said, adding that global problems need global multilateral solutions.

He made the remarks when delivering a speech at the opening ceremony of the Boao Forum for Asia annual conference held in the southern Chinese island province of Hainan.
