BEIJING, Nov 08 (INP): Representatives of the world community including those from Pakistan noted that President Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics offers new insights into the improvement of the global governance system, reports Chinese state-run news agency Xinhua.
While closing watching the historical outcome of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), they said it leads to a bright future of entire humanity.
Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain, said the Belt and Road Initiative is the manifestation of the Chinese leadership’s collective wisdom to enhance China’s role in ensuring prosperity at the global level.
He said, “The outcome of the 19th Congress presents a solid agenda for addressing problems being faced by the mankind. The government and people of Pakistan are willing to work together with the Chinese people to build a global community with a shared future.”
Xinhua quoting other world leaders further said, China, under the leadership of the CPC, endorses the common values of the whole mankind, including peace, equity, justice, democracy and freedom, and advocates a world truly shared by all where international affairs are jointly managed, the world order is jointly built, and economic and social progress are shared.
China champions the development of “a community with a shared future for mankind”, which has been widely accepted by the international community and become an important consensus of global governance.
Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico spoke highly of Xi’s innovative concept of promoting the establishment of a community with a shared future for mankind.
Lord Tu’ivakano, speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Tonga and former prime minister, said China’s impressive feat is an inspiration to developing countries including Tonga.
China has over the past five years set its own independent course governed by a policy of development-for-all, said Michael Steger, president of the Bay Area Chapter of the International Schiller Institute. He attributed China’s achievements to the strong Chinese leadership. His organization is a global political and economic think tank with headquarters in Germany and the United States.
Steger noted that China’s willingness to blaze its own pathway, with an orientation to share the means of development, has now become a stabilizing factor for the world.
With great strength comes great responsibility, and Xi has already displayed that responsibility, said Sourabh Gupta, a senior policy analyst at the Institute for China-America Studies, a Washington-based independent think tank.
As China gradually steps up onto the stage to take part in global governance, international observers have recognized it as a responsible stakeholder.
Speaking on China’s international leadership, Maksym Savrasov, head of the secretariat of Ukraine’s ruling party Petro Poroshenko Bloc “Solidarity”, said the achievements are vividly represented by the initiative on the construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (the Belt and Road Initiative), which was put forward by Xi in 2013.
The initiative envisions reviving the ancient overland and maritime silk trade routes that connect Asia with Europe and Africa, boosting inter-connectivity, trade and people-to-people links.
“We are convinced that this global initiative has an enormous potential. Today more than 65 countries are united around this idea,” or more than 60 percent of the world’s population, the Ukrainian lawmaker said.
The Belt and Road Initiative “should be able to produce global public goods. I think it can be,” said Harvard professor Joseph Nye.
Former Ukrainian President Leonid Kravchuk said the initiative is a good instrument to promote win-win cooperation and equal partnership around the globe.
“China firmly adheres to the policy of non-interference. It does not impose its lifestyle upon others, but promotes cooperation. The Belt and Road Initiative is the vivid confirmation to this,” Kravchuk said.
As dozens of countries have joined the initiative, China has become “a major center of attraction” for all the people who wish to achieve development, said Mahmoud Raya, director of the “China in Arab Eyes” news website in Lebanon.
Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz said Xi’s strategic thinking maps out a bright future for the Chinese people and consolidates the foundation of world peace.
China’s success can provide other countries with inspiring experience in pursuing their own development and in promoting global peace and prosperity.
“Over the past five years, China has shown potential it has to the entire world,” said South Korean ambassador to China Noh Young-min, noting that Beijing has also begun to turn into a key player in the international community for world peace.
“Most of the countries admire the Chinese experience,” Raya from Lebanon added. “That’s why China will always be an inspiration for all the countries looking for peace, security and advancement.”
