Luo Jianbo: China’s Savior mentality is unacceptable, Essay

Infrequently there comes an essay from a high level Chinese government official that somewhat departs from the Chinese Communist Party line of thought. Authors of these essays must be very careful as such articles could, now or in the future, be used to investigate and or incarcerate. A fine balance is always required. This 2017.07.21 article by Luo Jianbo, the head of the China policy centre at the Central Party School, walks this fine line, and with eloquent writing. I hope that this essay will not be taken in the wrong way and result in his removal, or worse.

His thoughts lie in how Xi Jinping has departed from the more traditional Deng Xiaoping line of keeping a low profile. Xi Jinling’s much more colourful and forceful Party line has possibly gotten China into trouble with the rest of the world.

The backlash from the CCP about intellectuals was expected.

Nationalistic tabloid Global Times quoted Su Wei, a professor at the Party School of the Chongqing Municipal Committee, as saying that “China’s patriotic education has faded in recent years, which has led to many abnormal phenomena”…

“Many opinions they have not dared to voice in public before are being published now. Many have concerns about policies and the direction the country is heading in – some are calling for changes and a return to the policies of Deng Xiaoping,” he said, referring to the late paramount leader who set the country on a course for economic reforms and opening up.

This translation uses Google Translate, which I will try to clean up later.

In a recent essay, Luo Jianbo, the head of the China policy centre at the Central Party School, openly challenged China’s zeal to be the “saviour of the world”, arguing for a return to Deng’s “keeping a low profile” strategy instead. China, Luo said, is still a developing country which needs to focus on domestic structural economic issues, deepen reform and not spend strategic resources frivolously on sensational global undertakings. source

中国举办的 “一带一路” 国际合作高峰论坛已经圆满落下帷幕。自近代以来,由中国发起倡议并得到如此广泛的国际关注,的确尚属首次。中国人有理由感到振奋和自豪。但是,国内媒体和学者铺天盖地的颂扬,以及网络上表达出的某种自负情绪,却让人深感忧虑。

还记得2016年杭州20国集团(G20)峰会召开之际,无论官方还是学者,都声称中国为久病不愈的全球经济开出了一副标本兼治的 “药方”。大有众人皆醉我独醒、各国皆衰我独兴的架势。

而此次 “一带一路” 高峰论坛的召开,一些人似乎走得更远,开始醉梦于中国的 “世界领袖” 地位,甚至有文章扬言中国已经成为 “救世主”。

无论是在杭州国际博览中心,还是在北京雁栖湖畔,外国政要逐一走过长达50米的红地毯与中国领导人握手的场景,也让我们很多人感到兴奋不已。国人 “早熟”但却“ 不成熟 ”的大国心态,似乎还在快速膨胀。

这种不成熟的大国心态,不只是表现为在发展上 “超英赶美” 式的大跃进以及对自身发展成就的某种盲目乐观和自满,也体现在遇到外交不愉快甚或外交挫折之后,短期内急剧爆发的狭隘的民族主义情绪和近乎狂热的排外情绪,以及对某些中小国家表现出的不屑、轻视和某种居高临下的教训口吻。其实,这种表面的自负恰恰反映了国人自信心的不足和大国心态的不成熟。

本文的目的,不在于贬损中国自己,而意在说明,在全面走向世界大国的进程中,中国人应该及时培育成熟、稳健的大国心态和大国胸襟。

中国人要自信地看到,中国是一个发展中国家,但也天然是一个大国。即便是在中国国力不济的年代,毛泽东、邓小平等老一代领导人也从未自视为小国、弱国。

中国人还要看到,以爱国主义为核心的民族精神是实现国家发展和民族振兴的需要,一定程度的民族自豪感、自信心和责任心也是实现民族团结并激发国家发展潜力的基础性前提。

因此,培育国人成熟的大国心态实为必要,做到自信而不自大,自豪而不自负。

我们不会健忘。就在几年前,人们还在讨论如何认识甚或践行 “韬光养晦、有所作为” 的方针,但如今,这一话题早已成为过去时。对于中国发展包括中国特色大国外交的历史成就,很多人已经不满足于 “有所作为” 或者 “更加有所作为”,而是倾向于使用 “奋发有为”。不过,笔者还是以为,我们仍然需要对自身发展及其在世界的地位有一个比较清醒的认识。

何谓世界性大国?

世界大国,不仅仅只有庞大的经济和市场规模,也需要有强大的科技创新和知识生产能力,拥有相当的全球军事存在和文化影响力,以及在重大国际体系中拥有显著的话语权。

作为一个世界性大国,为世界经济增长做出贡献自然十分重要,但同样也需要在解决若干重大全球性问题包括热点难点问题上拥有重要影响力,在推动世界共识的形成乃至引领世界发展方向上发挥独特作用。

中国正在具有越来越多的大国 “存在”,但还缺乏全面意义上的国际影响力和国际话语权。一些国外学者称中国为 “不完全的大国”(Partial Power),虽然很不中听,但却并非毫无道理。

准确认识中国的基本国情和发展阶段,需要我们认真领会三个 “没有变” 和三个 “前所未有” 的辩证关系。
20–

“十八大” 报告强调,“我国仍处于并将长期处于社会主义初级阶段的基本国情没有变,人民日益增长的物质文化需要同落后的社会生产之间的矛盾没有变,我国是世界最大发展中国家的国际地位没有变”。

在此基础上,中共中央总书记提出,“我们前所未有地靠近世界舞台中心,前所未有地接近实现中华民族伟大复兴的目标,前所未有地具有实现这个目标的能力和信心”

三个 “没有变” 要求我们看到自身的不足,保持战略定力和历史耐心,三个 “前所未有” 则激励我们保持乐观自信,注重开拓进取,争取更加积极有为。

中国尚未实现民族伟大复兴,尚未成为全面意义上的世界大国,在此关键阶段,继续保持适度的 “低调” 对于实现国家发展的长远目标有着显见的意义。

当年 “韬光养晦” 的精髓之处,在于尽量避开世界主要矛盾的矛头,避免成为世界矛盾的焦点。在当前时代,其实质是要求中国人始终谦虚谨慎、戒骄戒躁,努力解决好自身问题并集聚国家发展的核心竞争力,同时积极运筹好与外部世界的关系,维护和延长中国发展的战略机遇期。
25–

我们曾一再真诚地告诫美国人,帝国的衰落源于实力的过度伸张,但也要不断提醒自己,对于尚未崛起的大国更是需要韬光养晦并积聚实力,20世纪德国、日本、苏联的鲁莽和冲动就是失败的典型案例。

如果本着实事求是的态度,我们会发现,美国在大国崛起道路上曾体现出的淡定和从容或许值得我们学习。

美国的经济总量在1900年就超过了英国,但它直到半个世纪之后才全面接管世界领袖的接力棒。在20世纪美国遇到的几次大危机当中,包括1930年代的经济大萧条、1960年代的越南战争,美国都通过战略的调整和收缩进而重振了国家实力。始于奥巴马,经由特朗普显著强化的 “美式” 韬光养晦,其实正是当前美国在面临一系列难题之后的又一次战略调整。在当前美国更加关注国内发展并着力打造硬实力的今天,继续强调 “韬光养晦、有所作为” 的战略思维对中国的发展有着重要的现实意义。

从对外关系的角度,中国需要务实、稳健地推进对外战略布局,包括时下热议的 “一带一路” 建设。作为一项合作倡议,“一带一路” 无疑有助于推动中国复兴和世界发展,堪称当前中国特色大国外交最具代表性的理论与实践创新。但在实践中,也存在诸如 “战略冒进”、“好大喜功”、“贪大求全” 等隐忧。

如果低调一点的话,我们完全可以把 “一带一路” 视为中国对外开放的一次全面升级,意在通过互联互通、产能合作、人文交流来推动中国发展的转型升级和中国全面走出去,以及中国与沿线国家的互利共赢和共同发展。
30–

但是,相关部门的高度重视和有关专家的战略解读,极大赋予了 “一带一路” 的大战略色彩。中国政府的多次倡议,有关部门急于拿到 “早期收获”,特别是中巴经济走廊不计成本地全力推进,难免不让他人感到中国在推动 “一带一路” 建设上的迫不及待,有可能进一步坐实国际社会的种种疑虑。

作为一项合作倡议,“一带一路” 建设的推进当然离不开政府的引导,但其主体应该是企业、社会组织和民间力量,且基于充分协商、全面评估基础上循序渐进、审慎稳妥地予以推进。但是,“一带一路” 的实践也存在一些无序和乱象,各部门、各地区、各行业都争先恐后,抢滩掠地,忙着争做 “一带一路” 的桥头堡和排头兵。

中国在委内瑞拉等国巨额投资所陷入的困境,在缅甸、泰国、苏丹等国投资所遇到的问题,以及中资企业在多个国家并不显著的经营业绩,其实早已敲下了警钟。

从经济层面讲,“一带一路” 的看点在于 “走出去”,但难点在于 “走回来”,也即实现资本的增值、回流以及经验、技术的提升。

很多繁荣其实并不真实。仅举一小例,这几年,为配合有关部门的需要,中国多种古典书籍、治国理政的宏论以及学者的著述开始大规模地得到译介并走出国门,其背后是大量的国家财力支持,而非真正的国际市场需要。这种喧嚣和热闹并非基于市场逻辑,因而注定不可能永远持续下去。
35–

“一带一路” 到底是什么?如果我们务实地把它定位为经济合作平台和人文交流纽带,其意义已经很重要,可做的工作已经很多。但如果我们迫不及待地把它定位为一个重大的 “全球治理” 平台,不仅要解决全球面临的发展赤字,还要解决更为复杂的全球和平赤字和治理赤字,至少在目前阶段,显然愿景过大,步伐过快,很可能给我们自己的责任也过多。所谓全球治理,简单地讲,就是协调强者,抚慰弱者,其核心是全球责任和义务的再分配。

中国在若干重大地区冲突中能够发挥什么作用,在全球反恐进程中做出什么样的贡献,在全球难民治理中分担何种责任,在全球环境治理特别是自身环境治理中又有什么承诺,这些都是需要回答的具体问题。如果我们只是泛泛空谈,或者给出具体承诺但却很难兑现,势必难以满足世人不断增长的期望,其结果反而会影响自身的国际信誉。

我们要看到,中国历史上并没有积累多少 “走出去” 的智慧和经验。15世纪郑和七下西洋,虽然宣示了国威,结交了友邦,甚至一度带来万国来朝之盛世景象,但这一耗时三十年之久的航海壮举却极大损耗了国力,此后戛然而止,在世界航海史上没有留下任何痕迹,对中国的发展及海权意识的成长也影响甚微。

20世纪50、60年代新中国走向亚非拉地区,虽然外交成效显著,但由于过于强调政治合作而忽视应有的经济效益,只算政治账而不算经济账,因而在进入1980年代后也出现了政策上的极大调整。在今天中国已经成为资本净输出国之后,我们面临再一次的大规模 “走出去”,如何做到可持续发展,增进自身利益并兼顾各方关切,已经成为必须重视的大课题。“一带一路” 的推进,必须充分汲取历史教训。

中国人历来怀抱 “大同” 愿景和 “天下” 情怀,素有“ 先天下之忧而忧,后天下之乐而乐 ”的道德境界。同时,中国文化也讲求 “中庸之道”,注重内敛而自省,中国人也奉行 “己所不欲勿施于人” 甚至 “己所欲之也慎施于人” 的行事原则。心怀天下本身值得赞誉,但在对外关系中我们必须力求务实和稳重。
40–

或许更加重要的是,我们还需要努力解决好国内发展问题。中国过去几十年实现了经济的快速发展,也积累了许多值得总结的经验和思考。国内学者大多在总结中国发展模式的成功之道,忙着阐释中国的治国理政经验,但我们有意无意地忽视了这样的事实,迄今为止成功跨越 “中等收入陷阱” 的,要么是在发展过程中成功实现了政治转型的国家(如韩国),要么是成功实现了良好治理的国家(如新加坡)。

在中国尚未成功跨越 “中等收入陷阱” 之时,国人切莫盲目乐观自信,还需要认真、务实地思考并解决发展进程中面临的若干挑战和难题。其实,我们完全可以批驳所谓的 “中国崩溃论”,也可以力求证明中国不是一个 “脆弱的超级大国”(Fragile Superpower),但冷静想来,国内严重的贫富分化、社会矛盾、环境污染,以及经济结构调整的缓慢和政治改革进程的异常艰难,都说明国内问题始终是中国必须予以重点关注、全力解决的重心之所在。

中国老百姓的愿望大多很朴实,就是有更加和谐的社会、更加公正的秩序,更加幸福的生活。我们必须更加积极地回应并帮助他们实现这些愿望,这是决定我们内政外交的基础和前提。

想起平日里年轻网民们热议的话题:中国的敌人究竟是谁?是美国、日本,还是俄罗斯?

其实冷静想来,它们或许都不是,中国的敌人是中国自己。
45–

如果中国经济持续发展,民众生活不断改善,吏治变得更加清明,社会变得更加和谐,环境变得更加美好,在此基础上整体国力不断增长,中国的国家形象必然会大为改善,在世界的声望必将大幅增长,中华民族伟大复兴的中国梦终将会实现。对于这一天的到来,我充满期待。

Text | Eliminate prejudice with common sense

[Abstract] The “One Belt, One Road” summit forum was held. Some people began to be fascinated by China’s “world leader” status, and even articles threatened that China has become a “savior”.

Whether in the Hangzhou International Expo Center or on the shores of Yanqi Lake in Beijing, foreign politicians have walked through the 50-meter red carpet to shake hands with Chinese leaders, and many of us are excited. The mentality of the big country, which is “premature” but “immature”, seems to be expanding rapidly.

We will not forget. Just a few years ago, people were still discussing how to understand or even practice the policy of “keeping a low profile and making a difference”, but today, this topic has long been a thing of the past.

Think of the hot topic of young netizens on weekdays: Who is the enemy of China? Is it the United States, Japan, or Russia? In fact, if you want to come calmly, they may not be. The enemy of China is China itself.

The original title of this article is “China’s savior’s mentality must not be”, the original FT Chinese network. Author Luo Jianbo, Director of the China Diplomatic Research Office of the International Strategy Institute of the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. Doctor of Law, School of International Relations, Peking University.

The “One Belt, One Road” international cooperation summit forum held by China has come to a successful conclusion. Since modern times, it has been the first time that China has initiated initiatives and received such wide international attention. The Chinese have reason to feel excited and proud. However, the overwhelming praise of domestic media and scholars, as well as some kind of self-esteem expressed on the Internet, is deeply worrying.

I still remember that on the occasion of the G20 summit in Hangzhou in 2016, both the official and the scholars claimed that China has opened a “prescription” for the long-suffering global economy. There are people who are drunk and I am sober, and all countries are fading.

And this “Belt and Road” summit forum, some people seem to go further, began to be divorced by China’s “world leader” status, and even articles threatened that China has become a “savior.”

Whether in the Hangzhou International Expo Center or on the shores of Yanqi Lake in Beijing, foreign politicians have walked through the 50-meter red carpet to shake hands with Chinese leaders, and many of us are excited. The mentality of the big country, which is “premature” but “immature”, seems to be expanding rapidly.

This immature big country mentality is not only manifested in the development of a “super-English-American” leap forward and some kind of blind optimism and complacency in its own development achievements, but also in the face of diplomatic dissatisfaction or even diplomatic setbacks. The narrow nationalist sentiment and the almost fanatical xenophobia in the short term, as well as the disdain, contempt and some condescending tone of some small and medium-sized countries. In fact, this kind of superficial self-confidence reflects the lack of self-confidence of the Chinese people and the immaturity of the mentality of the big country.
10–

The purpose of this article is not to derogate China itself, but to explain that in the process of moving toward a world power, the Chinese should promptly cultivate a mature and stable big country mentality and a big country.

The Chinese must confidently see that China is a developing country, but it is also naturally a big country. Even in the era when China’s national strength was not good, the leaders of the older generation of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping were never seen as small and weak.

The Chinese also want to see that the national spirit with patriotism as the core is the need to realize national development and national rejuvenation. A certain degree of national pride, self-confidence and responsibility are also the basic premise for realizing national unity and stimulating the country’s development potential. .

Therefore, it is necessary to cultivate a mature state of the country, to be confident and not arrogant, proud and not conceited.

We will not forget. Just a few years ago, people were still discussing how to understand or even practice the policy of “keeping a low profile and making a difference”, but today, this topic has long been a thing of the past. For the historical achievements of China’s development of diplomacy, including the great powers with Chinese characteristics, many people are already dissatisfied with “doing something” or “making more difference”, but tend to use “work hard.” However, the author still believes that we still need a clearer understanding of our own development and its status in the world.

What is a world power?

The world’s great powers not only have a huge economic and market scale, but also need strong technological innovation and knowledge production capacity, a considerable global military presence and cultural influence, and a significant voice in the major international system.

As a world power, it is naturally important to contribute to world economic growth, but it also needs to have an important influence in solving a number of major global issues, including hot and difficult issues, and to promote the formation of world consensus and even lead the world. Play a unique role.

China is having more and more big countries “existing”, but it still lacks international influence and international discourse power in a comprehensive sense. Some foreign scholars call China “Partial Power”, although it is not very interesting, but it is not without reason.

Accurate understanding of China’s basic national conditions and development stage requires us to seriously understand the dialectical relationship between the three “no change” and the three “unprecedented”.
20–

The “18th National Congress” report emphasizes that “the basic national conditions that China is still in and will be in the primary stage of socialism have not changed. The contradiction between the people’s growing material and cultural needs and backward social production has not changed. China is the world’s largest development. The international status of China has not changed.”

On this basis, the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee stated that “we are closer to the center of the world stage than ever before, and we are close to achieving the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation as never before, and have the unprecedented ability and confidence to achieve this goal.”

The three “no change” require us to see our own shortcomings, maintain strategic strength and historical patience. The three “unprecedented” encourage us to maintain optimism and self-confidence, focus on pioneering and enterprising, and strive for more positive and promising.

China has not yet achieved the great rejuvenation of the nation and has not yet become a world power in a comprehensive sense. At this critical stage, maintaining a moderate “low-key” has obvious significance for realizing the long-term goal of national development.

The essence of the “hiding and keeping a low profile” was to avoid the main contradiction of the world and avoid becoming the focus of world contradictions. In the current era, the essence is to require the Chinese to always be modest and cautious, to guard against arrogance and arrogance, to solve their own problems and to gather the core competitiveness of the country’s development, while actively planning the relationship with the outside world and maintaining and extending China’s development strategy. Opportunity period.
25–

We have repeatedly and sincerely warned the Americans that the decline of the empire stems from the excessive expansion of power, but we must constantly remind ourselves that for the big powers that have not yet risen, it is necessary to keep a low profile and build up strength. The recklessness and impulsiveness of Germany, Japan, and the Soviet Union in the 20th century. It is a typical case of failure.

If we follow the attitude of seeking truth from facts, we will find that the calmness and calmness that the United States has shown on the road to the rise of the great powers may be worth learning.

The US economy exceeded the UK in 1900, but it did not take over the world leader’s baton until half a century later. In the midst of several major crises in the United States in the 20th century, including the Great Depression of the 1930s and the Vietnam War of the 1960s, the United States reinvigorated the country’s strength through strategic adjustments and contractions. Starting with Obama, the “American style” that was significantly strengthened by Trump is actually another strategic adjustment after the current US confrontation. Today, the United States is paying more attention to domestic development and is striving to build hard power. Today, the strategic thinking of “keeping a low profile and making a difference” has important practical significance for China’s development.

From the perspective of foreign relations, China needs to pragmatically and steadily promote the external strategic layout, including the “Belt and Road” construction that is now hotly debated. As a cooperative initiative, the “Belt and Road Initiative” will undoubtedly help to promote China’s rejuvenation and world development. It is the most representative theoretical and practical innovation of the current diplomacy of big countries with Chinese characteristics. However, in practice, there are also hidden worries such as “strategic advancement”, “good big success”, and “greatness and perfection”.

If we are low-key, we can completely regard the “Belt and Road” as a comprehensive upgrade of China’s opening up to the outside world. It aims to promote the transformation and upgrading of China’s development and China’s comprehensive outbound through interconnection, capacity cooperation and humanities exchange, as well as China and China. Mutual benefit and common development of countries along the line.
30–

However, the high attention of relevant departments and the strategic interpretation of relevant experts have greatly endowed the great strategic color of the “Belt and Road”. The Chinese government has repeatedly advocated that the relevant departments are eager to get “early harvests”. In particular, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor will do its best to promote the “One Belt, One Road” initiative. Real doubts about the international community.

As a cooperative initiative, the promotion of the “Belt and Road” construction is of course inseparable from the guidance of the government, but its main body should be enterprises, social organizations and non-government forces, and based on full consultation and comprehensive evaluation, it should be promoted step by step, prudently and steadily. . However, the practice of “One Belt, One Road” also has some disorder and chaos. All departments, regions and industries are scrambling to rush to the ground and busy fighting for the “Belt and Road” bridgehead and vanguard.

China’s huge investment in countries such as Venezuela, the problems encountered in investment in Myanmar, Thailand, Sudan and other countries, as well as the insignificant business performance of Chinese-funded enterprises in many countries, have already sounded the alarm.

From the economic point of view, the “One Belt, One Road” point of view is “going out”, but the difficulty lies in “going back”, that is, achieving capital appreciation, reflow, and upgrading of experience and technology.

A lot of prosperity is actually not true. To give a small example, in the past few years, in order to meet the needs of relevant departments, China’s various classical books, the macro theory of governing the country, and the writings of scholars have begun to be translated and exported on a large scale, behind which there is a large amount of national financial resources. Support, not the real international market needs. This kind of jealousy and excitement is not based on market logic and is therefore doomed to last forever.
35–

What is the “Belt and Road”? If we pragmatically position it as an economic cooperation platform and a humanistic communication link, its significance is already very important, and there is already a lot of work to be done. But if we can’t wait to position it as a major “global governance” platform, we must not only solve the global development deficit, but also solve the more complex global peace deficit and governance deficit, at least at this stage, obviously the vision is too big. The pace is too fast, it is likely to give us too much responsibility. The so-called global governance, simply speaking, is to coordinate the strong and comfort the weak, and its core is the redistribution of global responsibilities and obligations.

What role can China play in a number of major regional conflicts, what contribution it can make in the global counter-terrorism process, what responsibilities are shared among global refugee governance, and what commitments are in global environmental governance, especially its own environmental governance? They are all specific questions that need to be answered. If we only talk about it in general, or give specific promises, but it is difficult to fulfill, it will be difficult to meet the growing expectations of the world, and the result will affect its international reputation.

We must see that there has not been much wisdom and experience in the history of China. In the 15th century, Zheng He went to the Western Seas seven times. Although he declared the national prestige, made friends with the country, and even brought the world to the world, the 30-year-long maritime feats greatly depleted the national strength. However, there are no traces left in the history of world navigation, and little impact on China’s development and the growth of sea power awareness.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the new China moved to the Asia-Africa region. Although the diplomatic achievements were remarkable, due to the overemphasis on political cooperation and neglecting the economic benefits, only the political accounts were not counted as economic accounts, so after entering the 1980s, There have been major adjustments in policy. After China has become a net exporter of capital today, we are faced with another large-scale “going out”. How to achieve sustainable development, enhance our own interests and take into account the concerns of all parties has become a major issue that must be taken seriously. The advancement of the “Belt and Road” must fully draw lessons from history.

Chinese people have always embraced the “Datong” vision and the “world” feelings, and they are known as the moral realm of “the worries of the world before and the joys of the world.” At the same time, Chinese culture also emphasizes the “moderation of the mean”, paying attention to introversion and introspection. The Chinese also pursue the principle of “doing nothing to others” or even “doing it to others with care.” It is worthy of praise for the world itself, but in external relations we must strive for pragmatism and stability.
40–

Perhaps more importantly, we still need to work hard to solve domestic development problems. China has achieved rapid economic development in the past few decades and has accumulated many experiences and thoughts worthy of summing up. Most domestic scholars are summing up the success of China’s development model and are busy explaining China’s experience in governing the country. However, we have intentionally or unintentionally ignored the fact that the successful success of the “middle income trap” has been in the development process. Countries that have successfully achieved political transition (such as South Korea) or countries that have successfully achieved good governance (such as Singapore).

At a time when China has not successfully crossed the “middle income trap”, the Chinese must not blindly be optimistic and confident. They also need to seriously and pragmatically think about and solve some of the challenges and problems facing the development process. In fact, we can completely refute the so-called “China collapse theory”, and we can also try to prove that China is not a “fragile superpower” (Fragile Superpower), but calmly think about it, the country’s serious polarization between the rich and the poor, social contradictions, environmental pollution, and The slow pace of economic restructuring and the extremely difficult political reform process indicate that domestic issues have always been the focus of China’s focus and efforts.

Most of the wishes of the Chinese people are very simple, that is, there is a more harmonious society, a more just order, and a happier life. We must respond more actively and help them achieve these aspirations. This is the basis and premise for determining our internal and external diplomacy.

Think of the hot topic of young netizens on weekdays: Who is the enemy of China? Is it the United States, Japan, or Russia?

In fact, if you want to come calmly, they may not be. The enemy of China is China itself.
45–

If China’s economy continues to develop, people’s lives continue to improve, governance becomes clearer, society becomes more harmonious, and the environment becomes better. On this basis, the overall national strength continues to grow, and China’s national image will inevitably be greatly improved. The prestige will surely increase dramatically, and the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will eventually be realized. I am full of expectations for the arrival of this day.
