Xi Jinping stressed that this is an era full of challenges and an era full of hope. We must recognize the general development trend of the world, strengthen our confidence, and act on it. We must form a single rope and join forces to promote global development and jointly create a development pattern of inclusiveness and balance, coordination and inclusiveness, win-win cooperation, and common prosperity.
First, we must jointly build an international consensus to promote development. Only when people of all countries live a good life can prosperity last, security be guaranteed, and human rights have a foundation. We must place development at the center of the international agenda, implement the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and build a political consensus that everyone attaches importance to development and that all countries seek cooperation.
Second, we must jointly create an international environment conducive to development. Protectionism is self-inflicted, and creating a “small circle” will only isolate oneself, limit others and harm oneself, and decoupling and cutting supply will not work and will not go far. We must seek development with sincerity, make concerted efforts to promote development, build an open world economy, and build a more just and reasonable global governance system and institutional environment.
Third, we need to jointly cultivate new momentum for global development. It is necessary to promote technological and institutional innovation, accelerate technology transfer and knowledge sharing, promote the development of modern industries, bridge the digital divide, accelerate low-carbon transformation, and promote a stronger, greener and healthier global development.
Fourth, we need to jointly build a global partnership for development. Only through cooperation can we achieve great things, good things, and long-term things. Developed countries should fulfill their obligations, developing countries should deepen cooperation, and the North and South should meet each other halfway to jointly build a global development partnership of solidarity, equality, balance and universal benefits, so that no country or individual will be left behind. We should support the United Nations in playing an overall and coordinating role in global development cooperation, and encourage business circles, social groups, and media think tanks to participate in global development cooperation.
