Chinese Vice-President Wang Qishan Addresses the Second Dialogue on Exchanges and Mutual Learning among Civilisations
Vice-President Wang Qishan made a video address at the Second Dialogue on Exchanges and Mutual Learning among Civilisations.
Wang stressed that promoting exchanges and mutual learning among civilisations represents a major issue for peaceful development of the world and for the betterment of people¡¯s lives. It is imperative to keep on developing a deeper and better understanding of both our own and other civilisations, to look for the key to inter-civilisational exchanges and connectivity from the perspective of the entire mankind and to gain confidence out of historical, cultural and philosophical considerations, so that consensus on the building of a global community with a shared future will grow steadily. Wang pointed out that, in its history of over 5,000 years, the Chinese nation had fostered a splendid civilisation and made major contributions to the progress of human civilisation. The Communist Party of China has led the Chinese people in upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics, and in pioneering the Chinese-style modernisation, and creating a new model for human advancement. With a strong sense of responsibility for the future of the human race, President Xi Jingping made the call to champion the shared human values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom. These values represent the broadest common ground among civilisations and the most basic and the most sublime values the human race holds dear.
Wang said, on the new journey, China will continue to strengthen solidarity and coordination with all other countries in gathering strength for the progress of civilisations and jointly chart a course toward a brighter future. China is ready to share development opportunities with the rest of the world and work together to expedite the materialisation of the Global Development Initiative and deepen and substantiate Belt and Road cooperation so that human civilisation will advance on an even more solid material base. China is willing to work with all countries to stand for true multilateralism and to build a new type of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness and justice and win-win cooperation. The realisation of democracy and freedom is the common mission of the entire human race. The judgement of the myriad political civilisations of the world cannot be made with a single yardstick. China is ready to work with all parties to explore a new path of mankind in developing democracy on the basis of mutual respect, mutual trust and mutual learning.
The Dialogue was hosted by CAFIU, in which around 260 guests from home and abroad participated. Mr. Ji Bingxuan, Vice-Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People¡¯s Congress as well as CAFIU¡¯s President delivered a keynote speech at the opening ceremony.
