The Chinese Dream, a dream of peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit
The Chinese Dream is a dream of peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit. It is a dream devoted to the world and connected with the dreams of other peoples around the world.
The Chinese nation is a peace-loving nation. The Chinese people have the hardships of war ingrained in their memories, and they pursue peace tirelessly. The Chinese people abhor upheaval, demand stability and yearn for peace.
Without peace, neither China nor the world can develop smoothly, and without development, neither China nor the world can have lasting peace.
We hope that different countries and different civilizations will carry out exchanges on an equal footing, learn from each other and achieve common progress; that the people of all countries can share in the fruits of global economic, scientific and technological advances and have their wishes respected; and that all countries can make concerted efforts to promote the building of a harmonious world of enduring peace and shared prosperity.
China has time and again pledged to the international community that it will never seek hegemony and expansion.
China does not seek selfish development at the expense of other countries. On the contrary, it is firmly committed to win-win cooperation, and more and more countries are benefitting from its development.
In March 2014, China was already the biggest trading partner of more than 120 countries and territories.. Today the whole world enjoys using fairly priced quality goods from China.
In this new century China has provided foreign aid worth more than RMB 170 billion and written off about RMB 30 billion worth of foreign debt.
In 2013 China's economic growth contributed nearly 30 percent to the world's economic growth.
Over the next five years China is expected to import goods worth more than US$ 10 trillion and invest $500 billion overseas, while the number of Chinese tourists going overseas will reach 500 million.
All this will present the world with considerable business opportunities.
