Xi's trip to promote win-win cooperation

2013-08-29 08:33 Xinhua Web Editor: Gu Liping

With President Xi Jinping scheduled to visit Central Asia and attend two major summits in the coming weeks, China is making another stride forward in promoting win-win interaction with the world.

The trip, said international relations experts, bears both regional and global significance, and will contribute greatly to realizing the "Chinese dream" of national rejuvenation and the world dream of lasting peace and common prosperity.


Xi's attendance at the Group of 20 (G20) summit in St. Petersburg sends a message to the international community that China attaches great importance to the significant role the group plays in solving global economic problems.

China values and supports the G20 mechanism, and follows "a progressive and coherent policy" in boosting the global economy and enhancing economic governance, said Zhang Yuyan, director of the Institute of World Economics and Politics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

As a slow recovery continues in developed countries and a slowdown bites into the emerging markets, Xi and his counterparts will discuss strategies on global coordination and economic governance in efforts to achieve a robust, sustainable and balanced economic growth.

Meanwhile, Xi will present China's current economic situation as well as its great economic potential to the international community, giving the lie to those mongering gloom on China's economic outlook.

With other heads of state, the Chinese president will also discuss how to improve global governance and build a fairer and more effective international economic order, including reforms of such organizations as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

As the largest developing country, China will actively take part in global governance, as well as the setting and amending of international economic rules on investment, trade, finance and bulk commodity trades, said Chen Fengying, a senior director of China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations.


Xi's attendance at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit on Sept. 13 will enhance cooperation among SCO members in politics, security, economy and society.

Firstly, cooperation on security is important and urgent against the backdrop of the fast-changing global situation and complex relations between major countries.

The enduring turbulence in West Asia and North Africa has exerted negative influence on neighboring regions. Meanwhile, the SCO is facing severe cyber security threats, rampant international organized crime and the restless "three evil forces" of terrorism, extremism and separatism.

"Cooperation on security is always the SCO's core function and priority," Pan Guang, director of Shanghai Cooperation Organization Studies Center at Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, told Xinhua.

Cooperation in this regard is fruitful, added Pan, noting that China conducted joint anti-terrorism drills with Russia and Kyrgyzstan respectively in July and August.

The upcoming summit will strengthen regional anti-terrorism forces and promote more practical and effective development of the border defense cooperation mechanism.

Secondly, SCO member countries should take advantage of their economic complementarity to deepen cooperation and revitalize their economies.

Backdropped by an unstable world economy in recent years, the SCO has calibrated its policies to deepen regional economic cooperation, safeguard security in finance, energy and food, improve the livelihood of the people and reduce poverty.

Pan suggested that the SCO prioritize the building of infrastructure networks and cooperation mechanisms for development finance.
