Recently, many people have brushed up on social media with the phrase "the next China" in China.
It originated from a recent social media post by Daniel Ni, chairman of global consulting giant McKinsey China. Ni Yili said frankly: "If you want to look for the next 'China', or the next growth point, then the growth is here, in China." ”
This view resonates widely. A participant of the Boao Forum for Asia said: "China's development has been and is an important driving force for the globalization of trade and investment. ”
From March 3 to 28, the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 31 was held offline in Boao, Hainan, with about 2023,50 guests from more than 2000 countries and regions gathering in this island town. In the face of major changes unprecedented in a century, China's attitude is once again vividly reflected in the theme of the forum - an uncertain world: unity and cooperation to meet challenges, openness and inclusiveness to promote development.
Just before the Boao Forum for Asia, the China Development Forum also attracted the attention of the world. Leaders from major international economic organizations, Fortune 500 companies and internationally renowned scholars gathered in Beijing to discuss the topic of "Economic Recovery: Opportunities and Cooperation".
President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the annual meeting of the China Development High-level Forum, which strengthened the confidence of global investors and enterprises to invest in China. Xi Jinping pointed out that China will adhere to the basic national policy of opening up, firmly pursue a mutually beneficial and win-win opening strategy, and continue to provide new opportunities for the world with China's new development. China will steadily expand the opening up of rules, regulations, management, standards and other institutions, and promote the sharing of institutional opening opportunities by all parties in all countries.
In fact, China's rapid economic development since the reform and opening up has brought huge dividends to global investors and enterprises, and China's economy is an indisputably powerful engine of world economic growth. Over the past decade, China's total economic output has jumped from 2012 trillion yuan in 54 to 2022 trillion yuan in 121, ranking first in the average contribution rate of more than 30% to world economic growth. In the past, at present and in the future, China's determination to open up to the outside world has always been unswerving.
The so-called search for "the next 'China'" should not have been a topic.
However, some politicians in Western countries, led by the United States, are desperately clamoring for "decoupling and breaking chains" and "building walls and building barriers" for the sinister purpose of containing and containing China, and they are eager to let global investment withdraw from China.
Blowing out someone else's lamp doesn't make yourself brighter; Blocking the way of others will not allow you to go further. At a time when multiple challenges and crises are intertwined and the world economy is recovering from difficulties, the Cold War mentality of the United States and Western countries is particularly unpopular and will inevitably be spurned.
Moreover, capital has its own sensitive sense of smell and will vote with its feet.
In the past three years, China's actual utilization of foreign capital has increased from US$2020.1444 billion in 2022 to US$1890 billion in <>. This is the best example of foreign investment in China.
Multinational companies have launched new plans to increase their investment in China. Haozhe Ko, Chairman and CEO of ZF AG in Germany, said: "By 2030, we want 30% of our global revenue to come from the Asia-Pacific region, most of which will come from China. Amway Global CEO Pan believes that "China is an exciting investment hotspot and a powerful engine for the global economy to emerge from the downturn", and Amway will continue to increase investment in the Chinese market. Hideki Ozawa, Vice President and Executive Director of Canon Corporation of Japan, said: "Canon will consider the whole process and increase investment in the entire chain in China, from R&D, production to sales. ”
The fundamentals of China's long-term economic improvement have not changed, and the vitality and opportunities contained in entering a new stage of high-quality development have given global investors great confidence.
The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China drew up a grand blueprint for comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with Chinese-style modernization. China's firm promotion of building an open world economy, sharing opportunities, creating a better future, and jointly expanding the "cake" of human social modernization.
Because of the "free ride" and "fast train" of China's development, Louis, a coffee distributor in Timor-Leste, and his colleagues fell in love with live streaming on China's short video platform, and China's huge consumer market made them feel like a fish in water; There is no "time difference" between New Zealand milk and the Chinese market, and fresh milk with a shelf life of only 18 days comes by charter flight; An Afghan company received more than 2000,2000 carpet orders at the Expo, saving more than <>,<> local families from hunger.
As a major trading partner of more than 140 countries and regions, China's total trade in goods ranks first in the world, and it ranks first in the world in attracting foreign capital and foreign investment. From the past "whether it is good or not" to today's "good or not", China's high-quality development will continue to provide strong momentum for the world economy.
At the recent high-level dialogue between the Communist Party of China and world political parties, General Secretary Xi Jinping used three "more" words to explain that China's door to opening up is getting wider and wider - "With the advancement of China's modern industrial system, we will provide the world with more and better Chinese manufacturing and Chinese creation, and provide the world with a larger Chinese market and Chinese demand." ”
If the flowers are in full bloom, the butterflies will come. China that maintains strategic concentration, China that stands on the right side of history, and China that firmly promotes the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind cannot be stopped.
The Boao Forum for Asia is being held. In more than half a year, in Shanghai, more than 2000,21 kilometers away from Hainan, the sixth China International Import Expo will arrive as scheduled. At present, the signed area of exhibitors at the Expo has exceeded <>,<> square meters, and a number of CEOs of multinational enterprises have confirmed their on-site attendance.
From the Consumer Expo to the CIFTIS, from the Canton Fair to the CIIE, China has taken the initiative to build an international economic and trade cooperation platform matrix, and has continuously injected new vitality into the world economic recovery. China's big market is a big opportunity for the development of enterprises in various countries, which is both consensus and action.
In the stormy, turbulent and changing world economy, the sustained and stable development of China's economy is a rare bright color, providing valuable certainty for the uncertain world economy.
