Xi Jinping attended the world economic forum “Davos agenda” dialogue and delivered a special speech.
To solve the problems of the times, we must uphold and practice multilateralism and promote the construction of a community of shared future for mankind
Xinhua news agency, Beijing, January 25, President Xi Jinping attended the “Davos agenda” dialogue at the world economic forum in Beijing on the evening of 25, and delivered a special speech entitled “let the torch of multilateralism illuminate the way forward for mankind”. Xi Jinping stressed that the solution to the problems faced by this era lies in maintaining and practicing multilateralism and promoting the building of a community of human destiny. Multilateralism in the 21st century should stick to the core values and basic principles of multilateralism, be based on the changes in the world pattern, and focus on the needs of global challenges. We should adhere to openness and inclusiveness, adhere to international laws as the basis, adhere to consultation and cooperation, and keep pace with the times. China will continue to actively participate in international anti epidemic cooperation, implement the win-win strategy of opening up, promote sustainable development, promote scientific and technological innovation, and promote the construction of a new type of international relations, so as to make constant progress towards the construction of a community of shared future for mankind!
Xi Jinping pointed out that novel coronavirus pneumonia has been raging around the world in the past year, and global public health is facing serious threats. The world economy is in deep recession, and mankind has experienced several rare crises in history. Now, the epidemic is far from over, and the fight against the epidemic is still going on, but we firmly believe that the cold winter can not stop the pace of spring, and the night can not cover the dawn. Human beings will certainly be able to overcome the epidemic situation, grow and progress in the struggle against the disaster, and be reborn.
Xi Jinping stressed that we should solve the four major problems faced by this era:
First, strengthen macroeconomic policy coordination and jointly promote strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth of the world economy. We should not only grasp the current situation, coordinate epidemic prevention and control and economic development, strengthen macroeconomic policy support, and promote the world economy to get out of the shadow of crisis as soon as possible, but also look to the future, and be determined to promote the transformation of world economic power, mode, and structural adjustment, so as to put the world economy on the track of long-term healthy and stable development.
Second, we should abandon ideological prejudice and work together on the road of peaceful coexistence and mutual benefit. Each country’s history, culture and social system has its own merits, and there is no distinction between high and low. The key lies in whether it conforms to its national conditions, whether it can win the support and support of the people, whether it can bring about political stability, social progress and improvement of people’s livelihood, and whether it can contribute to the cause of human progress. Without diversity, there would be no human civilization. The difference is not terrible. What is terrible is arrogance, prejudice and hatred. What is terrible is to want to divide human civilization into three, six and nine grades. What is terrible is to impose one’s own history, culture and social system on others. All countries should achieve peaceful coexistence on the basis of mutual respect and seeking common ground while reserving differences, promote exchanges and mutual learning, and inject momentum into the progress of human civilization.
Third, we should overcome the development gap between developed and developing countries and jointly promote the development and prosperity of all countries. With the development of developing countries, there will be a more solid foundation for the prosperity and stability of the whole world. The international community should implement its commitments, provide necessary support for the development of developing countries, safeguard their legitimate development rights and interests, promote equal rights, equal opportunities and equal rules, and let people of all countries share development opportunities and achievements.
Fourth, work together to meet global challenges and jointly create a better future for mankind. Public health emergencies novel coronavirus pneumonia will never be the last. Global public health governance needs to be strengthened. It is vital for the future of mankind to strengthen the response to climate change and promote sustainable development. Global action, global response and global cooperation must be carried out for all global problems facing mankind.
Xi Jinping pointed out that the problems in the world are perplexing. The way out is to maintain and practice multilateralism and promote the construction of the community of human destiny.
— we should adhere to openness and inclusiveness, and do not engage in closed exclusion. The essence of multilateralism is international affairs, which are discussed by all, and the future and destiny of the world are jointly controlled by all countries. In the international arena, engaging in “small circles” and “new cold war”, repelling, threatening and intimidating others, and always engaging in decoupling, disconnection and sanctions, artificially isolating or even isolating each other can only push the world towards division or even confrontation. A divided world cannot cope with the common challenges facing mankind, and confrontation will lead mankind to a dead end. We should adhere to the common values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom, jointly safeguard world peace and stability, and build an open world economy.
— we should adhere to the international law as the basis, and do not pursue egotism. The international community should be governed by the rules and consensus reached by all countries, not by one or several countries. The Charter of the United Nations is generally recognized as the basic principle of the relationship between countries. It is necessary to maintain the international system with the United Nations as the core, the international order based on international law, and the authority and effectiveness of multilateral institutions. We should persist in regulating the relations among countries through systems and rules, and oppose bullying. We should not practice unilateralism in the name of multilateralism. Once the rules are established, everyone should follow them effectively. “Selective multilateralism” should not be our choice.
— we should adhere to consultation and cooperation, and not engage in conflict and confrontation. Whether it is a cold war, a hot war, a trade war, or a science and technology war, it will ultimately harm the interests of all countries and sacrifice the well-being of the people. Respect and tolerate differences, do not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, and resolve differences through consultation and dialogue. We should abandon the Cold War mentality and the old concept of zero sum game, adhere to mutual respect and understanding, and strictly abide by the concept of mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation. We should reject the narrow policy of selfishness, advocate fair and just competition, and carry out track and field competitions that catch up with each other and improve together, instead of fighting against each other.
— we should keep pace with the times and not be complacent. Multilateralism in the 21st century should stick to its core values and basic principles, and reform and improve the global governance system on the basis of extensive consultation and consensus. Give full play to the role of who and build a community of human health. We should promote the reform of the World Trade Organization and the international financial and monetary system, explore the formulation of global digital governance rules, implement the Paris Agreement on climate change, and implement the UN 2030 agenda for sustainable development.
Xi Jinping stressed that China has opened a new journey of building a socialist modern country in an all-round way. We will base ourselves on the new development stage, implement the new development concept, actively build a new development pattern, and work with other countries to build a world of lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, inclusiveness, cleanness and beauty.
China will continue to take an active part in international anti epidemic cooperation. We should share the beneficial experience of epidemic prevention and control with other countries, and provide assistance to countries and regions with weak ability to cope with the epidemic. Strengthen vaccine cooperation, so that vaccines can truly become public products that people of all countries can use and afford.
China will continue to implement the strategy of opening up for mutual benefit and win-win results. It is not in the interest of any party to use the epidemic situation to engage in “de globalization” and “closure and decoupling”. China has always supported economic globalization and firmly implemented the basic national policy of opening up. One belt, one road to the whole industry chain, will be built to promote the liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment, to maintain smooth and stable supply chain of the global industrial chain, and to build a “high quality” and “one belt and one road”. We will continue to create a market oriented, rule of law and internationalized business environment, and play a huge market advantage and domestic demand potential, and inject more impetus to the recovery and growth of the world economy.
China will continue to promote sustainable development. Strengthen the construction of ecological civilization, and ensure to achieve the goal of reaching the peak of carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060. As long as it is something beneficial to all mankind, China will not hesitate to do it well and practice multilateralism with practical actions.
China will continue to promote scientific and technological innovation. We will increase investment in science and technology and strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights. Scientific and technological achievements should benefit all mankind, and should not be used as a means to limit or curb the development of other countries. China will promote international scientific and technological exchanges and cooperation with more open thinking and measures, and work with other countries to create an open, fair, just and non discriminatory environment for scientific and technological development.
China will continue to promote the construction of a new type of international relations. It’s not the Chinese philosophy that you lose and I win and the winner takes all. China firmly pursues an independent foreign policy of peace, actively develops friendly and cooperative relations with other countries, continuously deepens South South cooperation, more actively participates in global economic governance, and promotes the development of economic globalization in a more open, inclusive, inclusive, balanced and win-win direction.
Xi Jinping finally stressed that human beings have only one earth, and human beings have only one common future. Whether it is to deal with the current crisis or to create a better future, human beings need to work together, unite and cooperate. Practice has repeatedly proved that any beggar thy neighbor approach, any idea of fighting alone, any conceited arrogance, will eventually be doomed to failure! Let’s join hands and let the torch of multilateralism light the way forward for mankind, and move forward towards the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind!
