(closer to China) Davos agenda, Xi Jinping will give the “key year” China plan.
China News Agency, Beijing, January 25 (Liang Xiaohui, Li Jingze) the “Davos agenda” dialogue, held on January 25th, will be held on January 25th as the theme of the world economic forum, “the key year is to rebuild trust among all parties”.
The world economy is experiencing the most serious recession since the great depression in the 1930s, and mankind is once again at the crossroads of where to go. In this “critical year”, the world expects China to provide more wisdom and strength to get out of the epidemic haze and jointly promote economic development.
Four years ago, Xi Jinping attended the opening ceremony of the 2017 annual session of the world economic forum and delivered a keynote speech entitled “sharing responsibility for the times and promoting global development”. At a time when globalization is going against the current and unilateralism and protectionism are on the rise, China points out the development direction of economic globalization and shows its firm position in promoting economic globalization.
The current situation is similar to that at that time, but the challenge is more severe. The novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic emerge in an endless stream worldwide. Not only has it killed millions of lives, but also the world economy has been deeply slump, and global challenges are emerging. The dispute between multilateralism and unilateralism is more acute, and the world is facing a crucial choice again.
“China has always been committed to upholding and practicing multilateralism, promoting the construction of an open world economy, promoting the development of economic globalization towards a more open, inclusive, inclusive, balanced and win-win direction, and promoting the construction of a community of shared future for mankind.” China said a few days ago when looking forward to the “Davos agenda”. Experts believe that emphasizing adheres to multilateralism and putting forward the view of strengthening global cooperation and promoting economic globalization in the right direction will become an important aspect of Xi Jinping’s speech.
“If you build up your strength, you will be invincible; if you build up your wisdom, you will be invincible.” China has always adhered to multilateralism, which is also regarded as one of its important initiatives to advocate the improvement of global governance and support globalization. China believes that globalization is the trend of the times. Despite problems, we should not stop eating for choking. As Xi Jinping said in his speech in Davos four years ago, “the right choice is to make full use of every opportunity to cooperate to deal with all challenges and guide the trend of economic globalization.”
Ruan Zongze, executive vice president of the China Academy of international studies, believes that the core of “cooperative response” is to adhere to multilateralism and “when problems arise, let’s discuss and solve them together”.
Ruan Zongze further pointed out that globalization is a description and identification of the general trend of history, while multilateralism is a subjective choice to adapt to it. From globalization to multilateralism is a process from objective cognition to subjective response. The essence is to conform to the historical trend and stand on the right side of history.
Facts have proved that this choice is correct. In the past four years, China has adopted a series of policy options based on this, including continuing to expand opening up, building a new development pattern, and strengthening international cooperation. Even if affected by the epidemic, China’s GDP will still exceed one million billion yuan, becoming the only major economy to achieve positive growth in 2020, and its foreign trade will reach a new high, becoming the only major economy to achieve positive growth in goods trade in the world.
Now, Xi Jinping’s “speech in Davos” four years ago “put protectionism like Guan Jinhei’s house” must “unswervingly develop the open world economy”. “Mankind has become the destiny community between you and me,” and is more realistic and foresight, which is based on the current reality.
In the view of experts, multilateralism has become the consensus of many countries in crisis response.
“In the face of the epidemic and the resulting economic crisis, solidarity and cooperation have become the common choice of most countries.” Chen Fengying, a researcher at the Institute of world economics of the China Academy of modern international relations, believes that for countries, this constitutes the cognitive basis of multilateralism. “Many countries are looking forward to finding a way out of the predicament in multilateral cooperation.”
The theme of this “Davos agenda” dialogue – “seize the crucial year and rebuild the trust of all parties”, also reveals the meaning of adhering to multilateralism. The world economic forum said in a press release that the dialogue will help leaders develop innovative and bold solutions to fight the epidemic and promote a strong economic recovery.
However, it is undeniable that there is a tendency of “pseudo multilateralism” in the current world, that is, to engage in closed group politics under the guise of multilateralism; to impose the rules formulated by a few countries on the international community under the pretext of multilateralism; to ideologize multilateralism and build a value Alliance for specific countries. Gao Fei, vice president of the Chinese Academy of foreign affairs, said that multilateralism should be discussed and solved by all countries when they encounter common problems and challenges, rather than “pulling a small circle.”.
In this regard, the Chinese side recently put forward the “true and false debate” of multilateralism, stressing that the implementation of pseudo multilateralism will only create new divisions and trigger new conflicts. The outside world also expects Xi Jinping to clarify the real multilateralism in his speech, so as to inject more certainty into the economic globalization at a critical moment.
