(ECNS) -- China's State Council Information Office released a white paper titled "A Global Community of Shared Future: China's Proposals and Actions," on Tuesday.
President Xi Jinping first raised the vision of a global community of shared future when addressing the Moscow State Institute of International Relations in 2013. It answers a question raised by the world, by history, and by the times: “Where is humanity headed?”
Xi's proposal lights the path forward as the world fumbles for solutions, and represents China’s contribution to global efforts to protect our shared home and create a better future of prosperity for all, said the white paper.
To build a global community of shared future, all peoples, all countries, and all individuals must stand together in adversity and through thick and thin, navigating towards greater harmony on this planet that we call home, according to the white paper.
It called for efforts to build an open, inclusive, clean and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity, turning people’s longing for a better life into reality.
Over the past decade, the vision of a global community of shared future has seen steady progress and gained broader support, the white paper noted.
It is now widely recognized in the international community that the vision has nothing to do with self-interest and protectionism. Instead, by presenting China's vision of the course of human development, it confronts the hegemonic thinking of certain countries that seek supremacy, according to the white paper.
Looking to the future, the vision is bound to shine as a pioneering thought with the power of truth that transcends time and space, opening up a beautiful prospect of common development, long-term stability, and sustained prosperity for human society, the white paper said.
