There is only one earth in the universe, and human beings share one home.

But the planet on which we live is facing an unprecedented crisis – both known and unknown; There are both predictable and unpredictable. The survival of human civilization is a practical issue that must be faced. More and more people realize that compared with the accumulation of material wealth, it is particularly urgent to find the spiritual guidance for the sustainable development of human civilization with the ultimate concern for the fate of mankind.

Ten years ago, President Xi Jinping put forward the concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind, with the purpose of answering the questions of the world, history and times of "where is mankind going", lighting the way forward for the world of hesitation and search, and contributing Chinese solutions to the bright future of people of all countries working together to protect their homeland and share prosperity.

To build a community with a shared future for mankind, the future and destiny of every nation, every country and every person are closely linked, and we should share hardships and hardships, strive to build the planet where we were born and grew up in Sri Lanka into a big harmonious family, promote the construction of a world of lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, inclusiveness, cleanliness and beauty, and turn the aspirations of the people of all countries for a better life into reality.

The concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind focuses on the well-being of all mankind, with realistic thinking and future prospects; It not only depicts a beautiful vision, but also provides a practical path and action plan; It is not only the future of mankind, but also the destiny of every individual.

Over the past 10 years, the concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind has been continuously enriched and developed. From President Xi Jinping's first proposal at the Moscow Institute of International Relations in 2013, to the general framework of the "five-in-one" at the general debate of the 2015th session of the United Nations General Assembly in 1 (Note 2017), to the overall goal of building "five worlds" at the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva in 2 (Note <>), the ideological connotation of the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind has been continuously deepened and expanded.

Over the past 10 years, the practice of building a community with a shared future for mankind has steadily advanced. From bilateral to multilateral, from regional to global, this concept has achieved all-round and pioneering fruitful results, and the joint construction of the "Belt and Road" initiative, the global development initiative, the global security initiative and the global civilization initiative have taken root, bringing huge dividends of prosperity and stability to the world and creating solid people's livelihood and well-being.

In the past 10 years, the concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind has become increasingly deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. More and more countries and peoples have realized that this concept conforms to the common interests of all mankind, reflects the aspirations of the people of the world in pursuit of peace, justice and progress, and brings together the greatest common denominator of all peoples to build a better world. The international community generally believes that the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind transcends egoism and protectionism, breaks the hegemonic thinking of individual countries and reflects China's unique views on the direction of human development, which is of great significance for promoting unity and cooperation among all countries and creating a better future for mankind.

In order to comprehensively introduce the ideological connotation and vivid practice of building a community with a shared future for mankind, enhance the understanding and understanding of the international community, build broad consensus, and better join hands with other countries to build a community with a shared future for mankind, the Chinese government hereby issues this white paper.

Mankind stands at the crossroads of history

We live in a time of hope and a time of great challenges. Standing at the crossroads of history, is it unity or division, openness or closure, cooperation or confrontation? How to make a choice is related to the overall interests of mankind and tests the wisdom of all countries.

(1) Interdependence is the general trend of history

From the perspective of the history of human social development, human beings have experienced the agricultural revolution, industrial revolution and information revolution all the way from primitive society, but no matter how the productive forces develop and progress, they have not changed one of the most fundamental reality: the earth is the only home on which human beings live. All countries have the responsibility to jointly safeguard the safety of the earth and the future of mankind. If we viciously compete or even fight each other for power, we will only end up on the road of self-destruction.

Since ancient times, the simplest aspiration of mankind has been peace and development. After experiencing the baptism of war and conflict, especially after the catastrophe of two world wars, the awareness of the people of the world to cherish peace, expand cooperation and common development has been significantly enhanced, the concept of the human family has become more deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and people's yearning and pursuit of community have become more ardent.

Globalization has optimized the allocation of production factors such as capital, information, technology, labor, and management on a world scale, connecting isolated small lakes and rivers into vast oceans, breaking the original closed state of self-sufficiency of all nationalities, making the market the world market, and history becoming world history.

In today's rapid development of informatization, the Internet, big data, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence are developing rapidly. The cosmopolitan nature of human interaction is deeper and broader than ever before, and nations are more interconnected and interdependent than ever before. Globalization is not a choice, but a reality, even a way of life. The global village is becoming smaller and smaller, and the farthest distance on Earth is no more than 24 hours of direct flight. The world is also becoming more and more "flat", and with a touch of the mobile phone screen, you can instantly link to the other side of the world. The integrated world is there, and whoever rejects this world, the world will reject him.

Living under the same blue sky, whether close neighbors or distant friends, large or small countries, developed countries or developing countries, a community of interests, a community of responsibility and a community of destiny are increasingly formed. Only when the overall destiny of mankind is taken care of can the good hopes of every country, every nation and every person be realized. Whether the future is sunny or rainy, working together for mutual benefit and win-win results is the only correct choice.

(2) Global challenges require global responses

Today's world is undergoing major changes unprecedented in a century, and various old and new problems and complex contradictions are superimposed and intertwined. Human society is facing unprecedented challenges, and instability, uncertainty and unpredictability have become the norm.

The peace deficit is deepening. Since the end of the Second World War, human society has maintained general peace for more than 70 years, but the factors threatening world peace are still accumulating. War has rekindled in Eurasia, tensions continue to be tense, hot issues are rising one after another, the haze of the arms race is still lingering, the "sword of Damocles" of nuclear war is hanging high, and the world is facing the risk of falling back into confrontation and even war.

The development deficit continues to widen. The global economic recovery is weak, unilateralism and protectionism are rampant, some countries have built "small courtyards and high walls", forcibly promoted "decoupling and broken chains", and advocated "de-risk" in supply chains, and economic globalization has encountered adverse currents. The new crown epidemic has swallowed up global development achievements, and problems such as North-South gaps, development faults, and technological gaps have become more prominent. The Human Development Index fell for the first time in 30 years, with more than 1 million new poor people in the world and nearly 8 million people living in hunger.

The security deficit is becoming increasingly pronounced. International strategic competition is becoming increasingly fierce, trust between major powers is lacking, the Cold War mentality is back, ideological confrontation is repeating the same old rhetoric, hegemonic and hegemonic bullying behaviors such as bullying, cleverness and zero-sum games are deeply harmful, and non-traditional security challenges such as terrorism, cyber attacks, transnational crimes, and biosecurity are on the rise.

The governance deficit is even worse. The world is facing multiple governance crises, including the energy crisis, food crisis, and debt crisis. The urgency of global climate governance is prominent, and the green and low-carbon transformation has a long way to go. The digital divide is widening and AI governance is absent. The new crown epidemic is like a mirror, reflecting that the machine of the global governance system is increasingly lagging behind the times, and even failing on some issues, which needs to be reformed and improved.










































































































China has held more than 30 large-scale cultural and tourism years (festivals) such as the China-Italy Year of Culture and Tourism, the Year of Chinese Greek Culture and Tourism, and the Year of Culture and Tourism of China and Spain, promoted the continuous development of 16 multilateral exchange and cooperation mechanisms such as the BRICS Culture Ministers' Meeting and 25 bilateral cooperation mechanisms, continued to hold main cultural activities such as "Arab Art Festival" and "Meet in Beijing" International Arts Festival, and held "Happy Spring Festival" for more than 2017 consecutive years, and held about 130,2000 activities in more than 3000 countries in <>.

About <>,<> pairs of sister cities (provinces and states) have been established with various countries. Carry out the "Hello! China's "Inbound Tourism Promotion Work.

The international community positively evaluates the "Three Global Initiatives", believing that they reflect China's global vision and increasing international influence, and provide comprehensive solutions to the current problems facing mankind. The Global Development Initiative is highly consistent with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially echoing the aspirations of developing countries in pursuit of development. The Global Security Initiative adheres to the concept of common security, attaches importance to comprehensive policies, adheres to the approach of cooperation, seeks sustainable security, and contributes wisdom to addressing international security challenges. The Global Civilization Initiative advocates respect for the diversity of world civilizations by all countries and helps promote exchanges and mutual learning among civilizations.

(3) Acting together with more and more countries and regions

China has put forward a series of initiatives to build a community of common destiny at the regional and bilateral levels, and has worked with relevant parties to build consensus, expand cooperation, and play a constructive role in regional peace and development.

The China-Africa Community of Shared Future is the earliest proposed regional community of common destiny, adhering to sincere friendship, equal treatment, righteousness and benefit, putting righteousness first, development for the people, pragmatic and efficient, openness, inclusiveness and inclusiveness, and has become a model for China and regional countries to build a community of common destiny. The construction of a community of common destiny between China, Argentina, China and Latin America and the Pacific island countries has become a vivid portrayal of the solidarity, cooperation and joint progress of developing countries.

The construction of a China-ASEAN community with a shared future continues to take root, the China-ASEAN community of common destiny continues to advance, China-ASEAN cooperation is the most fruitful, dynamic and substantive in East Asian regional cooperation, political mutual trust between the two sides has been continuously improved, high-level exchanges are frequent, and a dialogue and cooperation mechanism in nearly 50 fields and institutions has been established. New progress has been made in building a community with a shared future in the Lancang-Mekong countries. The SCO has achieved fruitful results in building a community with a shared future between China and Central Asia, successfully held the first China-Central Asia Summit and established the China-Central Asia Summit mechanism, making positive contributions to lasting peace and common prosperity in the region and the world.

At the bilateral level, China is building different forms of community of common destiny with more and more friendly partners. China, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Mongolia, Cuba, South Africa and other countries have issued action plans, joint statements or reached important consensus on building a bilateral community with a shared future.

The community with a shared future for mankind is a vibrant, open and inclusive system. As long as countries with different geographical regions, history and culture, social systems, economic size and development stages agree with the core concept of a community with a shared future for mankind, they can seek common ground while reserving differences, reconcile differences, strengthen cooperation and seek win-win results. China will join hands with more and more regions and countries to promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind and make due contributions to the development of all countries and the progress of human civilization.

(4) Inject strong impetus into international cooperation in various fields

The concept of a community with a shared future for mankind directly points to the peace, development, security and governance deficits facing the world today, and puts forward rich propositions in the fields of health, climate change and cybersecurity, which have been translated into concrete actions, making China's unique contribution to solving world problems.

In the face of the raging new crown epidemic, China proposed to build a community of human health and health. Standing in the "first square" of international anti-epidemic cooperation, China has carried out global emergency humanitarian relief and provided assistance and support to more than 150 countries and international organizations within its capacity. Adhering to the "first attribute" of vaccine public goods, we were the first to commit to the new crown vaccine as a global public good, the first to support the exemption of intellectual property rights in vaccine research and development, and the first to carry out vaccine cooperative production with developing countries. As the "first echelon" of fair distribution of vaccines, we will contribute to the cause of human health with our firm commitment and practical actions.

In the face of chaotic and disorderly cyberspace governance, China proposes to build a community with a shared future in cyberspace. Actively participate in the UN cybersecurity process and support the UN in playing a central role in the global governance of cyberspace. Hold the World Internet Conference, establish the World Internet Conference international organization, and build a platform for global Internet sharing and co-governance. Launched the Global Data Security Initiative, and issued the China-Arab Data Security Cooperation Initiative and the China + Central Asian Five Data Security Cooperation Initiative with the League of Arab States and the five Central Asian countries respectively to promote the formulation of global digital governance rules. Promote the improvement of governance rules for new areas such as the deep sea, polar regions, and outer space, and ensure that all countries share rights and responsibilities. When formulating new rules for new governance, the interests and demands of emerging market countries and developing countries are fully reflected.

In the face of the fundamental issue of global governance of nuclear security, China proposes to build a community with a shared future for nuclear security, firmly uphold the international nuclear non-proliferation regime, promote the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and uphold the concept of rational, coordinated and progressive nuclear security. In response to the rising risk of nuclear conflict, China urged the leaders of the five nuclear-weapon states to jointly issue a joint statement, reiterating that "a nuclear war cannot be won and cannot be fought." It actively advocates the complete prohibition and thorough destruction of nuclear weapons and is the only nuclear State that has publicly committed itself not to be the first to use nuclear weapons and not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear-weapon States and nuclear-weapon-free zones.

In the face of increasingly complex maritime issues, China has proposed to build a community with a shared maritime future and has always been committed to peacefully resolving disputes over territorial sovereignty and maritime rights and interests through dialogue and consultation. We will sign and fully and effectively implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea with ASEAN countries, and continue to promote consultations on the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea. It is proposed to jointly build a blue economy partnership and strengthen the construction of maritime connectivity. Adhere to the road of cooperation between shelving disputes and joint development, and actively explore the joint development of resources with maritime neighbors.

In the face of increasingly severe global climate challenges, China has successively put forward important concepts such as building a community of human and natural life and a community of life on earth. China has actively promoted the transformation of economic development, promised to strive to achieve carbon peak before 2030, strive to achieve carbon neutrality before 2060, and build a "1+N" policy system for carbon peaking and carbon neutrality. China has built the world's largest clean power generation network, contributed 25% of the world's new green area since this century, supported an average annual economic growth rate of more than 3% with an average annual energy consumption growth rate of 6%, and has become the country with the largest installed capacity of hydropower, wind power and solar power generation in the world. Actively participate in global environmental governance, advocate the international community to fully and effectively implement the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Paris Agreement, and adhere to the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities". It has signed 39 memorandums of understanding on South-South cooperation on climate change with 46 developing countries, and trained about 120,2300 officials and technicians in the field of climate change for more than 15 developing countries. As the President of the fifteenth Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP<>), it has made every effort to promote the success of the meeting, took the lead in funding the establishment of the Kunming Biodiversity Fund, and promoted the achievement of the "Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework".

Whether it is to cope with the current crisis or to create a better future, all countries need to work together, in solidarity and cooperation. In the face of profound and grand changes in the past century, China has proposed to build a community with a shared future for mankind, calling on all countries to uphold the concept of common destiny, fully communicate and consult, share governance responsibilities, form broad consensus and concerted action to deal with global issues, and inject confidence and impetus into mankind's bright future.


Whatever is beneficial, walk with the times. The proposal and practice of the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind has gathered a broad consensus on solidarity and cooperation in the international community, and gathered a strong joint force to cope with challenges. Looking forward to the future, this concept will surely shine with more and more distinct truth power, more prominent leading role and ideological greatness beyond time and space, and open up a beautiful vision of common development, long-term stability and sustained prosperity for human society. The future of humanity is bright, but a bright future does not come automatically. Building a community with a shared future for mankind is both a beautiful vision and a historical process, which requires generation after generation to relay to achieve.

To realize this beautiful vision, confidence and determination are paramount. The trend of the times of peace, development, cooperation and win-win results is unstoppable, and building a community with a shared future for mankind is the future of the peoples of the world. At the same time, building a community with a shared future for mankind cannot be achieved overnight, nor can it be smooth sailing, it requires long-term and arduous efforts, perseverance and unremitting efforts. You can't give up your dreams because of the complexity of reality, nor can you give up your pursuit because your ideals are far away.

To realize this beautiful vision, pattern and mind are the foundation. Big times need big patterns, and big patterns call for big hearts. In the face of common challenges, no one or country can be left alone, and mankind can only live in harmony and coexistence. Only by strengthening coordination and cooperation and unifying the interests of their own people with the interests of the peoples of the world can all countries move forward together in the direction of building a community with a shared future for mankind.

To realize this beautiful vision, responsibility and action are the key. The road is simple, and practical work is essential. Building a community with a shared future for mankind depends on the joint action of all countries. All countries should have the spirit of taking the world as their own responsibility, actively act as a doer, not a spectator, strengthen dialogue, build consensus, promote peace, promote development, improve governance, and carry out global actions, global responses and global cooperation.

The road is blocked and long, and the line will come; The future can be expected. The road ahead is winding, but it is also full of hope. As long as all countries in the world unite together, walk the road of the world together, plan together, practice together, persist in efforts bit by bit, and make unremitting efforts day by day, we will certainly be able to build a world of lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, inclusiveness, cleanliness and beauty, and jointly create a better future for mankind!
