China News Service, Beijing, March 1 (Chen Tianhao and Feng Shuang) As the world's second largest economy, China's economic development trend is related to the overall global pattern. Judging from the data and trends currently available, according to the exchange rate method, the GDP of the United States in 2023 Its share in the world's total will rise again after 2022, while China's share of GDP will decline. Based on this, some foreign media believe that China's development prospects are "bleak" and that the evolution of the world economic pattern, which has been rising in the east and falling in the west, has "stopped."

  In response, Chinese state media recently published an article by Zhang Yongjun, deputy chief economist of the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, retorting that such an analysis is not comprehensive and lacks both historical perspective and foresight.

Zhang Yongjun pointed out in the article that the increase in the proportion of the United States in the world economy is mainly affected by short-term factors such as rising price levels in the United States and a large appreciation of the U.S. dollar exchange rate.

Taken together, the proportion of developed economies led by the United States in the world economy will rise after a short-term increase and then will be corrected. The share of developing economies led by China in the world economy will rebound after a short-term decline. The rise in the east and the fall in the west are still major changes in the world economic pattern. trend.

  In response to this issue, Josef Mahoney, an American professor at East China Normal University, told China News Service that countries around the world are in a difficult period and are also facing a new era full of challenges. As a rising power, China , we must consider our own responsibilities and responsibilities. In the face of domestic and foreign risks and opportunities, it is normal for its development process to be full of twists and turns.

Overall, he still maintains confidence in the positive trend of China's development.

  Mahoney said, "China is standing out as an advanced 'technical society'. In many technological fields, China has kept pace with the United States, and even surpassed the United States in some fields." He also said, "The establishment of a high-level technological society in China This is reflected in its world-leading national industrial system and outstanding achievements in green innovation and development. It is precisely because of the gradual development of technological society that China has successfully lifted approximately 800 million people out of poverty, completely eliminated absolute poverty, and has more than 400 million people. People's middle-income group. China's "whole-process people's democracy" political system promotes national rejuvenation and modernization through high-level coordination of politics, society, and economy, enabling China to emerge as a technological power and become a global leader in the production of scientific and technological products. At the same time, it has developed into the most advanced technological society in the world.”

  Warwick Powell, a visiting professor at the University of Queensland and a senior researcher at Taihe Think Tank, said that China's economic growth rate currently exceeds the overall growth rate of Western countries, and as China's technological level continues to advance and the education level of the population continues to improve, China's In some areas it has surpassed some Western countries.

  He said that whether it is a vertical comparison with its own level or a horizontal comparison with other countries, China is undoubtedly on an upward trend.

Relative to the West as a whole, China's status is also rising.

At the same time, China has demonstrated strong capabilities in anticipating challenges and responding to them.

Therefore, Bao Shaoshan believes that the current discussion on whether China's development prospects should be "optimistic" or "pessimistic" is no longer necessary. What is more important is how much confidence we have in China's success.

He fully believes that China can overcome many challenges and continue to maintain its development momentum in the next ten to twenty years.
