The human race is currently confronting unprecedented challenges as the globe is currently developing in an unprecedented manner, with growing deficits in peace, development, security, and governance.
In his report to the 20th CPC National Congress, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said that the globe has once again reached a historical fork in the road, and all of the world’s peoples will determine its future trajectory.
According to Xu Xiujun, research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of World Economics and Politics, the Chinese culture cherishes harmony in diversity and good neighborliness. The Chinese people have a strong genetic affinity towards peace. The Chinese classic The Art of War opens with the statement, “The art of war is of critical importance to the State. It is either a road to survival or ruin, a matter of life and death.
It therefore requires careful examination.
What it really implies is that war should always be avoided at all costs, and war should always be fought with extreme prudence.
The People’s Republic of China has never instigated a war or other conflict or taken even a small portion of another country’s territory since its founding. China has consistently adhered to the foreign policy goal of maintaining world peace and fostering common prosperity. It is dedicated to advancing the establishment of a community of shared future for mankind and does not accept the antiquated theory that “a strong country is compelled to seek hegemony.”
Chinese remedies to problems with world development. Today’s globe is more interconnected and dependent on one another than ever before, and it is transforming into a small, interconnected society with a common future. No nation can remain untouched by or resolve the issue on its own when it comes to global issues and difficulties like controlling the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.
A practical platform for creating a human community of shared future, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), put forth by Xi Jinping in 2013, is built on the principles of extensive consultation, joint construction, and shared benefits. With 149 nations and 32 international organizations as of October 2022, China had signed more than 200 cooperation agreements. The joint construction of the Belt and Road was also mentioned in the final reports of multilateral organizations like the United Nations and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.
In collaboratively constructing the Belt and Road, China pursues open, clean, and green cooperation. It also pursues high-standard cooperation to enhance people’s lives and advance sustainable development. China has achieved real results as a result. By the end of August 2022, goods trade between China and Belt and Road partners had surpassed $12 trillion, and China had made non-financial direct investments worth more than $140 billion in partner nations.
Chinese businesses have been actively “going global” as part of the Belt and Road cooperation to aid in the growth and building of host nations. By the end of 2021, Chinese businesses had spent more than $43 billion in partner nations’ overseas economic and trade cooperation zones, generating more than 340,000 local employment in the process.
China’s contribution to preserving global stability
China has consistently pursued a peaceful, independent foreign policy and has vehemently rejected hegemony and power politics. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China faithfully carries out its responsibilities and missions, respects the goals and tenets of the UN Charter, and defends the UN’s crucial position in world affairs.
The Chinese armed forces have sent out more than 50,000 peacekeepers and taken part in roughly 30 UN peacekeeping missions since its debut participation in such operations in 1990. Over 20 nations and territories, including Cambodia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Liberia, Sudan, Lebanon, Cyprus, South Sudan, Mali, and the Central African Republic, have seen the presence of Chinese troops. They have significantly aided in fostering peace, resolving conflicts, and preserving regional security and stability.
China has also proposed the Global Security Initiative (GSI), which provides a clear response to the question of the moment regarding the type of security concept the world requires and how nations might achieve common security, in order to advance world peace and development. The GSI is a significant new contribution China has made in its road to modernization to sustaining global peace and security and offers a key solution to the peace and security shortfalls. The international community responded enthusiastically to the call once the Initiative was announced. The UN and more than 100 other nations and international organizations have endorsed the Initiative. The Group of Friends of the Global Development Initiative now includes more than 50 nations.
China exemplifies the duty a major nation has to advance global development.
As a responsible major nation, China always upholds the proper understanding of justice and interests, placing righteousness before seeking common interests. China’s role as a significant nation in encouraging global development is demonstrated by its advocacy of “putting righteousness first” and “providing more and taking less” in its collaboration with poorer nations.
With its recent progress, China not only advances its own interests but also opens up new possibilities for the rest of the globe. China fully holds the intellectual property rights to the novel Juncao technology. It creates new opportunities for eradicating poverty, encouraging effective resource recycling, and boosting sustainable development.
