“The modernization of China‘s 1.4 billion population will be an unprecedented event in the history of human development.”
On November 17, President Xi Jinping delivered a written speech at the APEC Business Leaders Summit held in Bangkok, Thailand, explaining in depth the rich connotations of Chinese-style modernization.
Once the major thesis of “Chinese-style modernization” was put forward, it aroused widespread attention at home and abroad. From the Fifth Plenary Session of the Nineteenth Central Committee to the party’s centennial celebration meeting, to the party’s 20th National Congress and a series of important occasions, General Secretary Xi Jinping expounded on this, constantly enriching and developing its connotation. This time, the written speech delivered at the APEC Business Leaders Summit gave an in-depth elaboration on issues of concern to the international community.
The huge population is an important feature of Chinese-style modernization.
So far, no more than 30 countries have achieved industrialization in the world, with a total population of no more than 1 billion. China has a population of more than 1.4 billion, which exceeds the total population of the existing developed countries. It is unprecedentedly difficult and complex to enter a modern society as a whole, and it will also profoundly rewrite the modern world map.
President Xi Jinping pointed out in his speech: “In the final analysis, the better development of China‘s economy and society must inspire the power of more than 1.4 billion people.”
Increase residents’ income by developing the economy and expanding employment; encourage hard work and innovation to get rich; create more inclusive and fair conditions for the people to improve their education and enhance their development capabilities; promote social fairness and justice, smooth upward mobility channels, and form everyone’s participation development environment… China has always insisted on putting the people at the center, giving full play to the advantages of the socialist system, and motivating more than 1.4 billion people to work together and march toward modernization.
The common prosperity of all the people is the inherent meaning of the Chinese-style modernization.
“Insist on the combination of the market and the government, the unity of efficiency and fairness, divide the cake well while making the cake bigger, and create an olive-shaped distribution structure”… President Xi Jinping in his speech It declares China‘s firm determination to focus on increasing residents’ income and satisfying people’s yearning for a better life.
In the speech, a piece of data caught people’s attention – “Make the middle-income group exceed 800 million in the next 15 years”.
my country is actively building a new development pattern with the domestic cycle as the main body and the domestic and international dual cycles promoting each other, and promoting Chinese-style modernization with high-quality development. In the next 15 years, there will be more than 800 million middle-income groups, and the huge market size brought about by their strong consumption power is immeasurable. It will not only provide a strong driving force for the domestic cycle and lay a solid foundation for the realization of Chinese-style modernization, but also provide a huge Chinese opportunity for the development of the world economy.
In the process of promoting Chinese-style modernization, it is necessary to realize the prosperity of the people’s material life and spiritual life as well.
“When high-rise buildings are everywhere in China, the building of the spirit of the Chinese nation should also stand majestically.” In his speech, President Xi Jinping vividly explained that Chinese-style modernization is material civilization Modernization in harmony with spiritual civilization has depicted to the world a beautiful future picture of “every family has enough food and clothing” and “everyone knows etiquette, honor and disgrace”.
Chinese-style modernization is a double wealth of material and spiritual, and it is a harmonious coexistence between man and nature.
“We adhere to the concept that green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains, promote the comprehensive green transformation of economic and social development, and strive to build a beautiful China with blue sky, green land and clear water.” In the speech , President Xi Jinping declared to the world that China will unswervingly follow the path of civilized development with production development, affluent life, and a good ecology, and the firm determination to realize the sustainable development of the Chinese nation.
Play an important role in the conclusion, entry into force and implementation of the Paris Agreement, support multilateral agendas such as the Convention on Biological Diversity and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and firmly implement the “Paris Agreement” Strive to achieve the goal of carbon peaking by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060″… Along the way, China has always fulfilled its responsibility as a responsible major country.
As President Xi Jinping pointed out in his speech: “This is responsible to ourselves and the world.”
Chinese style Modernization is a modernization that takes the path of peaceful development.
In his speech, President Xi Jinping once again emphasized: “We firmly stand on the right side of history, hold high the banner of peace, development, cooperation, and win-win results, and in firmly safeguarding world peace and development Seek self-development, and use self-development to better safeguard world peace and development.”
This is based on the fundamental interests of the Chinese people and the common aspiration of people of all countries.
A big country with a civilization history of more than 5,000 years is striding forward towards modernization, which can be called the most exciting story of struggle and the most eye-catching epic of civilization on this blue planet. For the world, the modernization of a major country with nearly 20% of the world’s population will not only greatly promote the process of world modernization, but also contribute Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions to the cause of human peace and development.
