  This year’s SCO Summit’s "Moscow Declaration" included this passage:

  More than two months ago, President Xi emphasized at the UN’s 75th Anniversary Summit: “Practicing multilateralism, you cannot sit down and talk about the truth. Instead, you must start doing things. You can’t just prescribe prescriptions without seeing the effects.”

  This is what China says, and it does so.

Fighting the epidemic and restoring the economy are two top priorities for all countries.

How to cooperate in response to the crisis test?

President Xi put forward a series of tangible initiatives and measures.

On March 2, Xi Jinping inspected scientific research work on the prevention and control of new coronary pneumonia in Beijing.

In the face of headwinds and currents, China has not only gained a firm foothold and stayed true to its original aspirations, but also faced difficulties and faced difficulties, actively building a platform for exchanges and cooperation for countries around the world.

Next year, China’s diplomatic agenda has been included in the 15th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the China-Shanghai Cooperation Organization Digital Economy Industry Forum. , Shanghai Cooperation Organization Non-governmental Friendship Forum, Digital Poverty Reduction Seminar and a series of activities.

  What kind of cooperation and win-win story China will write with other countries is very exciting.

  Multilateral conferences are not only a platform for the international community to discuss "everyone's affairs", but also a platform for each country to interpret "its own affairs."

  The Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China held not long ago drew a grand blueprint for China's development in the future.
