Hot Interpretation | Xi Jinping put forward this concept for the first time in a speech at the UN General Assembly

  On September 21, President Xi Jinping attended the General Debate of the 76th UN General Assembly by video and delivered an important speech entitled "Strengthening Confidence, Overcoming the Difficulties and Building a Better World Together".

  In his speech, President Xi emphasized the need to revive the economy and promote global development, and clearly proposed to build a community with a shared future for global development.

This is the first time that President Xi has proposed the concept of a "community with a shared future for global development" in important foreign affairs activities.

  Just a week ago, a report issued by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development predicted that the global economy will grow by 5.3% in 2021, the fastest growth rate in the past 50 years.

This is undoubtedly good news for the people of all countries in the global pandemic.

  At the same time, we must clearly realize that the global economic recovery is not balanced among different regions, different industries, and different income groups.

Many developing economies are affected by the epidemic more severely than the international financial crisis that broke out in 2008, and the gap with developed economies is widening.

In addition, the global economic growth rate in 2022 will have a clear slowdown.

  In this context, President Xi Jinping put forward a six-point initiative on global development at the United Nations General Assembly, aiming to promote a stronger, greener and healthy global development, and promote global development to a new stage of balance, coordination and inclusiveness. .

  This year marks the 50th anniversary of the restoration of the People’s Republic of China in the United Nations.

For many years, China has always been a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, a defender of international order, and a provider of public goods.

  Especially in recent years, China's contribution to world economic growth has continued to maintain at around 30%, ranking first in the world for years.

At the same time, the average growth rate of China's imports of goods and service trade is also much higher than the world average, providing a broad market for global development.

  In addition, since President Xi Jinping put forward the “Belt and Road” initiative in 2013, China has signed cooperation agreements with more than 170 countries and international organizations, jointly carried out more than 2,000 projects, and provided hundreds of thousands of local jobs.

  In the first half of this year, China's economy grew by 12.7% year-on-year. The strong growth momentum gave a "reassurance" to the global economic recovery under the epidemic.

  The President of the International Monetary Fund said that China's economic recovery has brought positive spillover effects, especially for those economies that have close economic and trade ties with China.

  "China's determination to promote common development will not change." In January 2017, President Xi's speech at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva remained extremely important.

  Since 2015, President Xi has repeatedly voiced China on the important multilateral stage of the United Nations, put forward China's plans, and clarified China's position.

  Attending the general debate of the 76th United Nations General Assembly on September 21, President Xi proposed for the first time to build a community with a shared future for global development, which is precisely the enrichment and development of the important concept of "a community with a shared future for mankind."

  Development is the "key" to solving current global problems. It can help mankind deal with numerous challenges and overcome difficulties. Only development can satisfy the ardent yearning of people of all countries for a better life.

  We should make good use of this "key" to jointly build a community with a shared future for global development, improve global governance, practice multilateralism, and open the door for people of all countries to build a better world.
