(A closer look at China) During the "Expo" in a special period, Xi Jinping upgraded China's opening road map

  China News Service, Shanghai, November 5 (Reporter Zhang Ziyang) announced four opening measures and proposed three "joint openings" to make the Chinese market a world market, a shared market, and everyone’s market... the world’s economy is experiencing a cold winter Against the background, the keynote speech delivered by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the opening ceremony of the Third China International Import Expo and Hongqiao International Economic Forum on the evening of the 4th provided a new cut for the world to observe how China will increase its opening up in the next step. The world of "mouth" solves problems, puts forward China's propositions, and injects confidence into cooperation.

  Observing the "time" of Xi Jinping's CIIE for three years, he used a larger length to emphasize the importance of opening up to China and to the world every time at this important external "window".

Just like Xi Jinping's explanation of why the China International Import Expo was held at the time, it was a major decision made by China focusing on promoting a new round of high-level opening up to the outside world and a major move by China to actively open its market to the world.

  Gao Fei, Vice Dean of China Foreign Affairs University analyzed that China has repeatedly emphasized opening up and continuously increased its opening up. It intends to release beneficial dividends to the world through deployment, implementation, deployment and implementation again and again, and the results will be within reach of the outside world.

  For example, at the opening ceremony of the second CIIE, Xi Jinping emphasized that China will continue to improve the market-oriented, legalized, and internationalized business environment, relax market access for foreign capital, continue to reduce the negative list, and improve investment promotion and protection, information Reporting and other systems.

  At the beginning of the following year, the Foreign Investment Law and the Regulations on Optimizing the Business Environment were officially implemented, and the negative list of foreign investment access has been reduced from 40 in 2019 to 33.

  For another example, China has continued to expand imports since last year, and the growth rate of imports of goods and services has been significantly higher than the global average.

The number of pilot free trade zones has increased from 18 to 21. Positive progress has been made in the negotiation and signing of high-standard free trade agreements, fostering import trade promotion innovation demonstration zones, and protecting intellectual property rights...

  Today, in a year when the world is undergoing major changes and the new crown pneumonia epidemic is superimposed, China has not only not reduced its opening to the outside world, but has further upgraded, increased, and expanded on the existing basis.

  "In the next step, China will uphold the belief in openness, cooperation, unity, and win-win, and will unswervingly expand its opening up in an all-round way." Xi Jinping emphasized.

  The four measures he announced for the comprehensive expansion of opening up include "building a new highland of opening up", "promoting the innovative development of foreign trade", "continuously optimizing the business environment", and "deepening bilateral, multilateral and regional cooperation."

Among them, Xi Jinping specifically mentioned, "China will compress the "China's Catalog of Technologies Prohibited and Restricted from Imports" and create a good environment for the free flow of technological elements across borders."

  Gao Fei believes that China has taken the initiative to upgrade the "new version" of the opening roadmap, sending three signals to the outside world: First, the Chinese keep their promises and do what they say.

The second is to dispel external concerns. The goal of opening up is to win-win, not China's own win.

Third, the world economy is "weak", and China is exporting "power" in a timely manner.

As the second largest economy, the world needs China to "do something" and "take responsibility" at this moment.

  In fact, observing the logical dimension of China's opening to the outside world requires not only capturing information through external platforms such as the “Belt and Road” and the China International Import Expo, but also researching, judging and grasping based on the formulation of domestic policies.

  On the 3rd of this month, the "Recommendations of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Formulating the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development and the Long-Term Goals for 2035", which was officially released Win a new situation".

  Ma Liang, a researcher at the National Institute of Development and Strategy at Renmin University of China, believes that including "implementing a high-level opening to the outside world" into an important political agenda can be regarded as a policy announcement by the whole party and the country.

The three "more" words "persist in implementing wider, wider and deeper opening up" not only quantify the depth of opening up, but also clarify how to implement opening up in the next 5 to 15 years Roadmap, update the "commitment letter".

  Now, through the CIIE (globally shared international public product) platform that has been given a new role and positioning, Xi Jinping proposed that China will more efficiently realize the interconnection of internal and external markets and the sharing of factor resources, so that the Chinese market will become a world market and shared The market, everyone's market, injects more positive energy into the international community.

  Wang Yiwei, deputy dean of the Institute of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era of the People’s University of China, told reporters from China News Agency that from the world factory to the world market, the shared market, and everyone’s market, the role change will activate the pulse of the world economy. Provide support.

In a sense, striving to form three "markets" is not only related to China's own development needs, but also related to the well-being of the people of all countries.

  "Of course, in addition to actively upgrading the open version, how to deal with a world full of uncertainties also requires the concerted efforts of all parties." Ma Liang believes that from the perspective of a community with a shared future for mankind, what kind of world mankind needs, from From history to reality, it has profoundly verified the law of "connected to advance together, and closed to retreat".

  "This epidemic warns us that all countries are a community of shared destiny, and no one can stand alone in the face of major crises. Unity and cooperation are the inevitable choice to deal with challenges." Xi Jinping said, we must adhere to the concept of win-win cooperation, trust instead of suspicion, and join hands. Rather than throwing a fist, negotiating instead of verbally, focusing on the common interests of all countries, promote economic globalization toward a more open, inclusive, inclusive, balanced, and win-win direction.

  As a result, Xi Jinping appealed to the world, "We must be committed to promoting common openness for win-win cooperation," "We must be committed to promoting common openness for cooperation and shared responsibility," and "We must be committed to promoting common openness for cooperation and governance."

  Wang Yiwei believes that Xi Jinping's mention of the three sets of "common openness" keywords of "win-win cooperation," "cooperation and shared responsibility," and "cooperation and co-governance," itself condenses the thinking that hopes that all countries will put common interests first.

For the current world, we need to listen to the voice of reason and justice, and we need to seek cooperation to relieve the greatest common divisor.
