2022-11-04 11:30

The recently concluded 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has drawn a blueprint and indicated the direction of China's future development. This meeting gave a clear signal that China will adhere to the country's basic policy of opening up, resolutely pursue a mutually beneficial strategy of opening up, unswervingly promote Chinese modernization with high-quality development, and continue to create more opportunities for the world through its development.

1.Chinese modernization offers humanity a new choice for achieving modernization

The path and process of modernization of the country depends on its specific social conditions, cultural traditions and historical environment. There is neither a modernization model regarded as the only choice nor a universal modernization standard in the world. China's unique national conditions, unique cultural traditions and unique historical process determine that Chinese modernization has the common features of modernization processes of all countries but it is more characterized by features that are unique to the Chinese context. Firstly, it is the modernization with a huge population. China is working to achieve modernization for more than 1.4 billion people, a number larger than the combined population of all developed countries in the world today. Secondly, it is the modernization of common prosperity for all. The progressive realization of common prosperity for all must be adhered to and polarization must be prevented. Thirdly, it is the modernization of material and cultural-ethical advancement. It insists on promoting all-around material abundance as well as people’s well-rounded development. Fourthly, it is the modernization of harmony between humanity and nature. Attention should be paid to the simultaneous promotion of the material and ecological advancement, and the pursuit of a model of sound development featuring improved production, higher living standards, and healthy ecosystems. Fifthly, it is the modernization of peaceful development. It emphasizes on peaceful development and mutually beneficial cooperation, promoting the development of a human community with a shared future, and striving to contribute to human peace and development.

Achieving modernization is a common aspiration of people all over the world, but the paths of modernization differ from country to country. China does not import other countries' models and opposes other countries imposing their own models on China. At the same time, China will not export the Chinese model or insist that other countries copy Chinese practices. Chinese modernization offers humanity a new choice for achieving modernization and provides new ideas for pursuing and advancing modernization to all countries in the world.

2.High-quality development of China's economy gives new impetus to world development

In the past decade, China's economy has moved from a stage of rapid growth to a stage of high-quality development, and economic development has embarked on a path of higher-quality, more efficient, fairer, more sustainable and more secure development. In the past decade, China has applied a new development philosophy, worked hard to promote high-quality development, pushed to foster a new pattern of development, and carried out supply-side structural reform,  which lead to China’s GDP grown from 53.9 trillion yuan to 114.4 trillion yuan, and its proportion in the world economy increased from 11.3% to 18.5%, with average contribution rate of 38.6% to world economic growth , which exceeded the sum of the contribution rates of the G7 countries. As the world's largest developing country, China has built a moderately prosperous society in all respects, won the largest battle against poverty in human history, lifted nearly 100 million poor rural people out of poverty, and achieved the poverty alleviation goal set on the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development 10 years ahead of schedule, contributing to the world poverty alleviation by more than 70%. China is pursuing a more proactive strategy of opening up, maintaining the security and stability of the global industrial chain and supply chain, and has become a major trading partner for more than 140 countries and regions.

China's population exceeds 1.4 billion, the middle-income group has more than 400 million people, and its scale is constantly expanding. It is obvious that the upgrading of citizens' consumption is gaining speed. There is huge investment space in infrastructure, ecological environment protection, new urbanization and other areas. It is a large market with the greatest potential in the world. Faced with increasing instability and uncertainty in the global economic situation, China remains an important stabilizer and source of energy for global economic growth. China's economy has great resilience, potential and latitude. Its strong fundamentals will not change, and it will remain on a positive trajectory over the long run. China will continue to adhere to the principles of openness, inclusiveness, mutual benefit and win-win results, promote high-standard opening up, steadily expand institutional opening up with regard to rules, regulations, management, and standards, and build a mutually beneficial cooperation, diversified, balanced, safe and efficient system for open economy. China will continue to preserve the diversity and stability of the international economic landscape and economic and trade relations, and bring more positive energy to the strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth of the world economy.

3.The whole-process  people's democracy brings Chinese wisdom into people's political civilization

Whether a country is democratic or not should be judged by the people of the country, not by a handful of people from outside. Whether a member of the international community is democratic or not should be judged jointly by the international community, not by a self-righteous minority. There are many ways to achieve democracy and there is no one-size-fits-all model. It is undemocratic in itself to use a single yardstick to measure the world's various political systems and examine the rich political civilization of mankind with a monochrome eye.

China practices whole-process people's democracy, which has integrated process-oriented democracy with results-oriented democracy, procedural democracy with substantive democracy, direct democracy with indirect democracy, and people's democracy with the will of the state. It covers all aspects of the democratic process and all sectors of society, and it is the broadest, most genuine and effective socialist democracy. The whole-process people's democracy has fully guaranteed the democratic rights of the Chinese people. It was deeply enshrined in the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. More than 96 million party members across the country had elected more than 2,000 delegates from different regions, ethnic groups and industries. The report to the 20th National Congress not only contained the views of the party, but also listened to voices outside the party, reflecting the common voice and will of the people. The most important achievement of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China was the election of a new central leadership with Xi Jinping as the core, which promoted and practiced democracy throughout the process and brought together the consensus of the Communist Party and the Chinese people. China will continue to promote the whole-process people's democracy, and will concretely and realistically reflect the running of the country by the people in policies and measures of governance and in tasks to realize the people's longing for a better life.

4.Building a human community with a shared future is the way forward for all the world’s peoples

Currently, our world, our times and history are changing in ways like never before. The historical trends of peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit are unstoppable. At the same time,the international community is facing many unprecedented challenges. The Cold War mentality and zero sum game are inappropriate. Drawing ideological lines, scratching up small circles and provoking block confrontations are in no one's interest and will only bring the world to a dead end.

Building a human community with a shared future is the way forward for all the world’s peoples. China is committed to building a world of lasting peace through dialogue and consultation, a world of universal security through collaboration and shared benefits, a world of common prosperity through mutually beneficial cooperation, an open and inclusive world through exchanges and mutual learning, and a clean and beautiful world through green and low-carbon development. All countries of the world should hold dear humanity’s shared values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy, and freedom, respect the diversity of civilizations and join forces to meet all types of global challenges.

China has always been committed to its foreign policy goals of upholding world peace and promoting common development, and it is dedicated to promoting a human community with a shared future. Over the past decade, substantial progress has been made in various fields and directions in building a human community with a shared future, from country to region, from bilateral to multilateral cooperation. The initiative of jointly building the "Belt and Road" has become a popular international public product and international cooperation platform. China's Global Development Initiative and Global Security Initiative have given new impetus to maintaining world peace and promoting common development. China is firm in safeguarding the international system with the United Nations at its core, the international order underpinned by international law, and the basic norms governing international relations based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter to promote fairer and more equitable global governance.
