    a concrete reality

    Hello Everyone,

    What does the " concrete reality" imply and mean in the following paragraph?


    The partnership between our two countries is important not just for what it brings both of us, but also for the common work which Britain and China can do together in the world, For example, thereis a wider message in the global response to the tragedy of thetsunami. It is that people around the world feel that theinterdependence of nations, so long talked about by statesmen, is today more than ever a concrete reality.


    Thanks

    An actual fact with solid ('concrete') examples.

    Note the spaces I added in the quote.
