Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends!
Since the founding of new China, especially since the reform and opening up, China has come a very unusual experience, we this generation of Chinese people have this experience.
In the late 1960 s, I was a teenager, is from Beijing to China's shaanxi province a small village called Liang Guhe jump the queue when farmers, spent seven years in there. At that time, the folks and I all lived in the kiln and sleep on a heatable adobe sleeping platform, the villagers lived a very poor, often eat less than a piece of meat is a few months. I know what is most needed in folks! Later, I became a party branch secretary of the village, led the villagers to develop production. I know what the people want. I'm looking forward to a thing, is to make folks meal of meat, and often eat meat. However, this desire is difficult to achieve at the time.
The Spring Festival this year, I went back to the village. Liang Guhe fix up the asphalt, folks living in the house, using the Internet, the old people enjoy the basic pension, the villagers have health insurance, children can get a good education, have no problem, of course, eating meat. It made me more profoundly aware that the Chinese dream is the dream of the people, must be combined with the Chinese people is yearning for a better life to be successful.
Liang Guhe the change of the small village, is the development and progress of Chinese society since the reform and opening up a microcosm. We use for 30 years, Chinese economy the world's second place with more than 1.3 billion people out of the material shortage, overall well-off level, unprecedented dignity and rights. This is not only the great changes in people's life in China, is also a great progress of human civilization, is China's important contribution to the cause of world peace and development.
At the same time, we are well aware that China remains the biggest developing country in the world. China's per capita GDP is only equivalent to one 7 of the two-thirds of the global average, the United States, ranked 80 in the world. According to our own standard, China has more than 7000 people living in poverty. If in accordance with the standards of the world bank, China there are more than two hundred million people live below the poverty line. China has a population of more than 7000 low-income urban and rural areas, there are more than 8500 people with disabilities. These two years, I went to many poor areas in China, visited many poor families, they are eager to the eyes of a happy life deeply imprinted on my mind.
These cases show that the Chinese people to live a good life, continue to pay hard work. Development is still the top priority of the contemporary China, China's rulers's primary mission is to focus on improving people's living level, gradually achieve common prosperity. To this end, we put forward "two" one hundred goals, implementation is to 2020 gross domestic product (GDP) and urban and rural residents per capita income than doubled in 2010, to build a well-off society in an all-round way; By the middle of this century built prosperous, democratic, civilized and harmonious modern socialist country to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Everything we do now, is to achieve this goal. To build a well-off society in an all-round way, must deepen the reform, the rule of law, the overall governing party. This is our strategy of "four comprehensive" put forward by the layout.
Everyone is concerned about China's development direction, concerned about China's policy orientation, here, I speak several opinions on some major issues.
China's economy will maintain steady and rapid development. China's economy remains within a reasonable range, in the first half of this year, 7% of China's economic growth, growth is still ranked among the top of the world. The complex environment in the world economic situation as a whole, this is hard-won. At present, the countries' economies are faced with difficulties, China's economy faces downward pressure, but this is the problem in progress. We will be steady growth as a whole, promoting the reform, restructuring, livelihood, prevent risks, strengthen macro-control and innovation, promoting economic growth remains in high level. Now, China's new industrialization, informationization, urbanization and agricultural modernization continues to advance, residents' high savings rate and huge consumption potential, people's hard work, the proportion of middle-income earners in improving, service industry development space is very large, large market space and potential. In the future, China will pay more attention to improve the quality and efficiency of economic development, accelerate transformation of the mode of economic development, adjusting economic structure, more emphasis on innovation drive, pay more attention to consumption, and pay more attention to solve the existing in the economic development of unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable problem, make China's economy the phoenix nirvana, ashes, maintained a strong momentum.
Recently, China's stock market abnormal fluctuation, caused the attention. Equity markets have their own rules. The government's responsibility is to maintain the market order of openness, fairness and justice, prevent widespread panic. This time, the Chinese government has taken some measures to stabilize the market, contain the stock market panic, to avoid the systemic risk at a time. The mature market also to take a similar approach. China's stock market has entered a stage of self-repair and the self-adjustment. On August 11, China improved median price quotation of RMB exchange rate mechanism, increase the market exchange rate. At present, the RMB exchange rate deviation correction has paid off. From the international and domestic economic and financial situation, the RMB exchange rate does not exist the foundation of the continuing decline. We will adhere to the market supply and demand determine the reform direction of the exchange rate, allowing the yuan to two-way floating, we are opposed to make competitive devaluations, against a currency war, also won't hold down the yuan to boost exports. Develop capital market, perfecting the market pricing mechanism of RMB exchange rate is one of China's reform direction, will not change because of the stock market, currency fluctuations.liuxue86.com
The fundamental way out for China's development lies in the reform. The goal of our reform, is promoting the modernization of national management system and management ability, make the market plays a decisive role in the allocation of resources, better give play to the role of government, accelerate the development of the socialist market economy, democratic politics, the advanced culture and harmonious society, ecological civilization. In 2013, the third plenary session of the communist party of China (18 identified comprehensively deepen the reform of the top-level design, more than 330 reform measures are put forward. In 2014, we determined 80 key reform tasks completed. In the first half of this year, we have introduced more than 70 key reforms, its effect will gradually appear. Reform moment brave wins, we will be dare to face tough, dare to wade rapids determination, without reform. We unswervingly adhere to the direction of reform of market economy, will continue to be in the market, the fiscal and taxation, finance, investment and financing, price, opening to the outside world, the people's livelihood, and other fields, rolled out some strength big, the measures of reform.
China's open door will never be closed. The basic state policy of opening to the outside world is China, China's utilization of foreign capital policy will not change, will not change the lawful rights and interests of foreign investment enterprise security, provide better service for national enterprises to invest in China's direction will not change. China respects non-discriminatory rules of the international business practices, adhere to the principle of national treatment and so on the world trade organization (wto), fair treatment of all market subjects including enterprises with foreign investment, welcome multinational enterprises to carry out various forms of cooperation with China. We will promptly solve the reasonable concerns of foreign investors, protect their legitimate rights and interests, efforts to create a transparent legal policy environment, efficient administrative environment, fair competition market environment, especially to protect the intellectual property rights, with countries around the world, including the United States for us open up broader space for cooperation.
The basic strategies for China sticks to the rule of law. "Legislators, conquer side also." Comprehensive the rule of law is to uphold the rule of law, administration, administration according to law in accordance with the common propulsion, adhere to the country under the rule of law and the rule of law government, rule of law society construction, promote the judicial credibility to improve and get respect and safeguard human rights. China will be in the areas of legislation, law enforcement and the judicial fair to foreign institutions and enterprises. We would like to work with the us exchanges on the rule of law problems and learn from each other, improve together.
China is a defender of network security. China is also victims of hackers. The Chinese government will not to participate in, encourage or support any form of anyone engaged in commercial secrets act. Whether network commercial espionage or to hacker attack by government networks, are illegal and criminal behavior, should according to laws and relevant international conventions to be hit. The international community should be based on the principle of mutual respect and mutual trust, mutual construction of peace, security, open and cooperative network space. China is willing to work with the United States to establish bilateral common cybercrime high-level dialogue mechanism.
Outside China must be the positive role of non-profit organizations, as long as the organization's activities are good for the Chinese people, we will not limit and prohibit their activities, and to ensure their activities through law, safeguard their legitimate rights and interests in China. Overseas non-profit organizations in China activities should comply with Chinese law, in accordance with the law.
We will continue to combat corruption in China. I have said that while the iron is hot still need their own hard. Here said that while the iron is hot, is the communist party of China. The fundamental purpose is to serve the people heart and soul of the communist party of China. The communist party of China has more than 8700 party members, the party must also exist problems. If we can't solve the existing problems and its development, the people will not trust and support us. So, we emphasize governance will first party, the party must strictly. For some time, we investigate corruption cases, adhere to the "tiger", "fly" to play, is to conform to people's requirements. There is no power struggle, there is no "house of CARDS. China is willing to work with the international community to actively carry out cooperation anti-corruption pursuit. The Chinese people hope that U.S. support and cooperation in this respect, keeping the corrupt overseas "paradise".
China adheres to the path of peaceful development. We just mark to the victory of war of resistance against Japanese aggression the Chinese people and the world anti-fascist war, the 70 anniversary of the victory of the history is an important enlightenment to us, is the path of peaceful development, and all attempts to seek power and hegemony of aggression by force are inverse historical trend, is to fail. The Chinese have recognized more than 2000 years ago "country is big, militant death" of the truth. China always pursues a defensive national defense policy and military strategy of active defense. I wish in this reiterated that no matter to which step, China will never seek hegemony and never go in for expansion. To show that China's determination to adhere to peaceful development, I recently announced that China will disarmament in 300000. We hopes to join hands with other countries to build win-win cooperation as the core of the new international relations, with cooperation instead of confrontation and win-win instead an exclusive, set up the construction of a new partnership idea, create a common development of new prospects, build new security situation.
China is a participant, builder and contributor of current international system. We firmly uphold the purposes and principles of the UN charter as the core of the international order and international system. Many countries especially developing countries in the world all hope that the international system towards a more just and reasonable direction, but this is not to come over, not the stove, but keep pace with The Times, reform and perfect. This conforms to the countries all over the world and the common interests of all mankind.
China's development benefits from the international community, China will contribute to the global development. We push to build "area", set up the fund of the silk road, initiative to set up the Asian infrastructure investment bank, etc., the purpose is to support the common development of all countries, rather than to seek a political sphere. "Area" is open inclusive, we welcome all countries in the world, including the United States and international organizations involved in the cooperation. We actively promote the asia-pacific regional economic integration, and promote achieving the asia-pacific free trade area, is to promote formation of free and open, convenient and quick, dynamic asia-pacific development space. We advocate, integration, cooperation, sustainable security concept, is to work together with regional countries and the international community, safeguard regional peace and security.
Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends!
In 2013, my meeting with President Obama in indiana's manor, reached important consensus of a concerted effort to build a new China and the United States the relations between big powers. This is the two sides on the basis of summarizing historical experience, proceeding from national conditions between the two countries and the world trend, common to make important strategic choice.
For more than two years, according to the consensus reached by both sides, and constantly promote the coordination and cooperation in various fields, important progress has been made. We work together to meet the international financial crisis, joint efforts to promote world economic recovery. We deepen pragmatic cooperation in every field, bring tangible benefits to the two peoples. Last year, bilateral trade volume between the two countries, two-way investment stock hit a record high, the total number of personnel exchanges. We over Iran's nuclear, north Korea, south Sudan, Afghanistan, the Middle East and other international and regional hotspot issues, and the fight against global problems such as the ebola virus, the fight against terrorism maintain close communication and coordination. "A, XiaZiChengQi." These fruitful "cooperation across the Pacific", strongly shows the vitality and the huge potential in the development of china-us relations.
How to promote the new starting point new power relationships? How China and the United States should cooperate to promote world peace and development? The answer is to insist on the right direction of construction of new China and the United States the relations between big powers, one step at a time. Chinese ancients said: "of the past, check to minister, and the departure, but is definitely." Among these, there are a few things especially to do well.
First, the correct judgment strategic intention to each other. Construction of new power relations with the us, the realization of the two sides do not conflict is not confrontation, mutual respect, win-win cooperation, China's foreign policy priority. We would like to work with the us side to deepen understanding of each other's strategic direction, development road, more understanding, less estrangement, more trust, a less suspicion, prevent strategic miscalculation misunderstanding. We will adhere to the facts as the basis, to prevent, three into a tiger, nor suspected stolen axe, not wearing tinted glasses watch each other. There is no "thucydides trap" in the world, but avoided strategic miscalculation, between big countries could give themselves "thucydides trap".
Second, unswervingly promote win-win cooperation. Cooperation is the only correct choice. Seek cooperation will take care of each other's interests and concerns, the greatest common divisor of cooperation. Both kaohsiung: well, can become the world's stable YaCangShi, the promoter of peace in the world. The conflict and confrontation, the two countries and the world is a disaster for sure. China should and can cooperation is very broad. We should promote global governance mechanism, promote world economic stability growth, jointly maintain the global financial market stability. We should talk about at an early date into a two-way balance, a high level of bilateral investment treaties, deepen the construction for the new military relations between China and the United States, expand pragmatic cooperation in the areas of clean energy, environmental protection, strengthen the law enforcement and anti-corruption, health and local cooperation in areas such as communication, mining potential for cooperation in infrastructure construction. We should deepen at the United Nations, apec, the g20 and other multilateral mechanisms and major international and regional issues, communication and cooperation on global challenges, in order to safeguard and promote world peace, stability and prosperity to make greater contributions.
Third, proper and effective control. "The moon and different light, day and night with appropriate." It is because of the differences, the world is colorful, Also it is because of the differences, just need to gather assimilation. Contradiction is common, pure and pure world does not exist. There are different views on some issues in China and the United States, there is a divergence is inevitable, the key is how to control. The key is that both sides should respect each other, seek common ground while putting aside differences, constructive ways to enhance understanding, expand consensus, trying to do a contradictory points into cooperation.
Fourth, the friendship between people widely cultivated. In the final analysis is the relationship between the people of the national relations. Although long distance between China and the United States, but the two peoples enjoy a long history of friendly exchanges. More than 230 years ago, American merchant ship "empress of China" transatlantic sea maiden voyage to China. 150 years ago, tens of thousands of Chinese workers, together with the people of the United States laid the east Pacific railway. 70 years ago, China and the United States as the world war ii Allies to fight shoulder to shoulder, together to defend the world peace and justice. Thousands of American soldiers in the war, for the righteous cause of the Chinese people sacrificed their lives. We won't forget the people of the United States won freedom and independence for the Chinese people's fight against aggression, to give moral support and valuable assistance.
The Chinese people have always admired the American people's enterprising spirit and creative spirit. My youth attended "the federalist papers", Thomas paine's "common sense" and other books, also like to know Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt and politicians in the United States, life and thoughts, I also read Thoreau, Whitman, Mark Twain, jack London, etc. Ernest Hemingway the old man and the sea of high winds and torrential rain, waves and description of the boat, the old man and the sharks left a deep impression on me. My first visit to Cuba, made a special trip to the Hemingway when writing the old man and the sea side of pier. Second to Cuba, I went to the Hemingway often go to the bar and ordered a Hemingway love drinking rum and mint on the rocks. I want to experience that Hemingway wrote the story of the spirit world and atmosphere on the spot. I think, for different cultures and civilizations, we need to understand.
In Chinese characters, the word "people" is the shape of a mutual support. Sino-us friendship, roots in people, in the hope that in the youth. I wish in this announced that China's support of the next three years the United States and China sent 50000 students to study in other countries, China and the United States will hold "sino-american tourism year" in 2016. China will create more conveniences for people's friendly exchanges between the two countries.
Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends!
Dr Kissinger in his book "the world order," said: "when judging each generation, to see whether they face up to the human society the most ambitious and important problem." Martin Luther King jr. King also said: "do the right thing, any time is a good time." Today, we once again came to the key time of history. Let us join hands and jointly create a better future for china-us relations, for our two peoples happiness, for the people all over the world to make a greater contribution!
Thank you very much.
