BEIJING, September 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attends the general debate of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly of September 18 to 25. In the margins of the general debate, Wang organizes meetings with various officials from other countries and UN leaders to discuss their relations with China and the challenges facing the world.
In the second part of the 10-part series “The China Path: A Panoramic Decoding” published by CGTN, the article titled “Major-country diplomacy benefits the world-at-large” describes how China could contribute to solving global issues. The article argues that multilateralism can help soften the impact of difficult issues and is therefore an important vehicle for a new type of international relations characterized by win-win cooperation.
Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres once said that “China has become the main pillar of multilateralism and an indispensable and reliable force for world peace and development.” Since the 18th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC), China has organized a succession of diplomatic events. And China has embraced the outside world with unprecedented openness by, among others, the BRI.
in 2021, China’s cross-border trade with countries between BRI member states shows a growth of 23.6 percent, 2.2 percentage points higher than the overall growth rate of China’s foreign trade in the same period. Export between China and BRI members have increased to an estimated 6.59 trillion yuan, an increase of 21.5 percent; while imports increased by 26.4 percent to 5.01 trillion yuan. China has signed more than 200 documents on BRI cooperation with 149 countries and 32 international organizations.
As humanity faces a growing governance deficit, a trust deficit, a development deficit, and a peace deficit, today’s world is witnessing changes on a scale unseen in a century. The international community is looking at China for more and better global public goods. In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2021President Xi proposed a Global Development Initiative to improve the well-being of all people and achieve overall human development.
Development must be sustainable and shared by all. By renewing the commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, reviving global partnerships and reviving international development cooperation, China has developed a roadmap for narrowing the North-South divide and addressing development imbalances to fulfill the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
