Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the 2022 World Economic Forum video conference in Beijing on the 17th and delivered a speech entitled "Forward with Firm Confidence and Perseverance to Create a Better World in the Post-epidemic Era".

Xi Jinping first pointed out that in two weeks, the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Tiger will arrive. In Chinese culture, the tiger is a symbol of bravery and strength. Chinese people often say that the tiger is alive and kicking. In the face of the severe challenges facing human beings, we must be more powerful and stronger, bravely overcome all obstacles on the way forward, do our best to remove the haze of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, and do our best to promote economic and social recovery and development, and let the sunshine of hope shine on mankind!

Xi Jinping stressed that the world today is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century. This change is not limited to a momentary event, a country or a region, but a profound and grand change of the times. The changes of the times and the epidemic of the century are superimposed on each other, and the world has entered a new period of turbulence and change. How to beat the epidemic? How to build a post-pandemic world? This is a major issue of common concern to people all over the world, and it is also an urgent major issue that we must answer.

Xi Jinping emphasized, "If the power of the world does not flourish, it will decline, and if the governance of the world does not advance, it will retreat." The world always develops in the movement of contradictions, and without contradictions, there is no world. Throughout history, human beings have grown by overcoming trials and crises. We must move forward in the logic of historical progress and develop in the trend of the times. We must be good at thinking from the comparative analysis of historical long-term cycles, and we must also be good at seeing changes in things from subtle points, nurturing new opportunities in crises, opening new situations in changing situations, and condensing powerful forces to overcome difficulties and challenges.

First, work together to overcome the epidemic. Facts once again show that in the turbulent waves of the global crisis, countries are not riding on more than 190 small boats, but on a big boat with a shared destiny. Small boats can't stand the wind and waves, only the giant ships can withstand the stormy waves. Strengthening confidence and helping each other is the only correct way to defeat the epidemic. Any mutual restraint, any unprovoked "throwing the pot" will delay the fighter opportunities and interfere with the overall situation. Countries around the world should strengthen international anti-epidemic cooperation, actively carry out drug research and development cooperation, build multiple anti-epidemic defense lines, and accelerate the building of a community of human health. In particular, we must make good use of vaccines as a powerful weapon to ensure fair distribution of vaccines, accelerate the speed of vaccination, bridge the international "immunization gap", and protect life and health and people's lives.

Second, resolve various risks and promote the stable recovery of the world economy. The world economy is coming out of the trough, but it also faces many constraints. We must explore new drivers of economic growth, new models of social life, and new paths for personnel exchanges under the conditions of normalized epidemic prevention and control, promote cross-border trade facilitation, ensure the safety and smoothness of industrial and supply chains, and promote the steady and solid progress of the world economic recovery. . All countries in the world must adhere to genuine multilateralism, insist on dismantling walls without building walls, opening up without isolation, integration without decoupling, promoting the building of an open world economy, and promoting economic globalization towards a more open, inclusive, inclusive, balanced, and The development in the direction of win-win will make the world economic vitality fully burst out. To push the world economy out of the crisis and achieve recovery, we must strengthen macro policy coordination. Major economies should establish a sense of community, strengthen the concept of system, strengthen the transparency and sharing of policy information, and coordinate the goals, intensity and pace of fiscal and monetary policies. Major developed countries should adopt responsible economic policies, control policy spillover effects, and avoid serious impacts on developing countries. International economic and financial institutions should play a constructive role, build international consensus, strengthen policy coordination, and prevent systemic risks.

Third, bridge the development gap and revive the cause of global development. The global development process is being severely impacted. The Human Development Index has dropped for the first time in 30 years. Some developing countries have returned to poverty and chaos due to the epidemic, and many people in developed countries have fallen into difficult living conditions. No matter what difficulties we encounter, we must adhere to the people-centered development philosophy, put the promotion of development and the protection of people's livelihood in a prominent position in global macro policies, implement the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and promote the synergistic growth of existing development cooperation mechanisms. to promote balanced global development. We must adhere to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, advance international cooperation on climate change within the development framework, and implement the outcomes of the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Developed economies should take the lead in fulfilling their emission reduction responsibilities, implement their commitments on financial and technical support, and create necessary conditions for developing countries to tackle climate change and achieve sustainable development. Global development initiatives are public goods open to the world. China is willing to work with all parties to jointly promote the implementation of the initiative and strive to not leave any country behind.

Fourth, abandon the Cold War mentality and achieve peaceful coexistence, mutual benefit and win-win results. Today's world is not peaceful, and there are endless remarks that incite hatred and prejudice. The resulting containment, suppression, and even confrontation are harmful to world peace and security. History has repeatedly proven that confrontation is not only ineffective, but has disastrous consequences. By engaging in protectionism and unilateralism, no one can protect anyone, and in the end, it will only harm others. To engage in hegemony and bullying is to move against the trend of history. It is inevitable that there will be contradictions and differences between countries, but it is useless to play a zero-sum game where you lose and I win. Peaceful development and win-win cooperation are the right path in the world. Different countries and civilizations should develop together while respecting each other, and seek common ground while reserving differences for win-win cooperation. We must conform to the general trend of history, devote ourselves to stabilizing the international order, carry forward the common values ​​of all mankind, and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind. We must adhere to dialogue rather than confrontation, inclusiveness rather than exclusion, and oppose all forms of unilateralism, protectionism, and all forms of hegemonism and power politics.

Xi Jinping emphasized that last year marked the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. The Communist Party of China has united and led the Chinese people to work hard for a long time, and achieved world-renowned achievements in national construction and development and improvement of people's lives. It has achieved the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way as scheduled, won the battle against poverty as scheduled, and solved the problem of absolute poverty historically. Now we have embarked on a new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way.

——China will unswervingly promote high-quality development. The overall development momentum of China's economy is good. Last year, China's GDP grew by about 8%, achieving the dual goals of higher growth and lower inflation. Despite the enormous pressure brought about by changes in the domestic and foreign economic environment, the fundamentals of China's economy with strong resilience, ample potential and long-term improvement have not changed. We are full of confidence in the future of China's economic development. China has clearly proposed to promote the all-round development of human beings and achieve more obvious and substantive progress in the common prosperity of all people, and will make efforts in all aspects to this end.

——China will unswervingly push forward reform and opening up. China's reform and opening up is always on the way. No matter what changes in the international situation, China will hold high the banner of reform and opening up. China will continue to make the market play a decisive role in resource allocation, unswervingly consolidate and develop the public sector of the economy, and unswervingly encourage, support and guide the development of the non-public sector of the economy. China will build a unified, open, competitive and orderly market system to ensure that all enterprises have equal status before the law and equal opportunities before the market. China welcomes all kinds of capital to operate legally in China and play an active role in China's development. China will continue to expand high-level opening to the outside world, steadily expand institutional openings such as rules, management, and standards, implement national treatment for foreign-funded enterprises, and promote the high-quality development of the Belt and Road Initiative.

——China will unswervingly promote the construction of ecological civilization. The development of the economy cannot deplete the resources and the ecological environment, and the ecological protection is not to give up economic development in order to seek fish. China adheres to the concept that lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets, promotes the integrated protection and systematic management of mountains, rivers, forests, fields, lakes, grass and sand, spares no effort to promote the construction of ecological civilization, goes all out to strengthen pollution prevention and control, and goes all out to improve the production and living environment of the people. Achieving peak carbon neutrality is an inherent requirement for China's high-quality development, and it is also China's solemn commitment to the international community. China will keep its promises and move forward firmly. Achieving peak carbon neutrality cannot be accomplished in one fell swoop. China will make a breakthrough and make steady progress, gradually reduce traditional energy sources in an orderly manner in the process of promoting reliable replacement of new energy sources, and ensure stable economic and social development. China will actively carry out international cooperation in addressing climate change and jointly promote a comprehensive green transformation of economic and social development.
