BEIJING - The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), the country's top think tank, published its eighth annual report on Monday and introduced a new international strategy.
The report - "China's Modernization 2008" - proposed a brand new concept, the so-called "Peace Dove Strategy".
The strategy, with the principle of "Follow the UN Charter and Promote World Peace", calls for the building of a favorable international environment for China's modernization.
The "Peace Dove Strategy" makes the United Nations the head of the Dove.
Asian nations are the foreside; the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation is the eastern wing, and the proposed "Asia-Europe Economic Cooperation", which is upgraded from the existing Asia-Europe Meeting, is the western wing.
South America, Oceania and Africa bring up the rear.
The strategy, which centers on Asia and faces the world, calls for cooperation of all member nations on an equal, mutually beneficial basis.
Under the strategy, China will optimize the structure of its international modernization strategy, increase its national capacity in international modernization, and improve the international environment for the country, according to He Chuanqi, head of the CASS Center on the Study of China's Modernization.
The strategy was created drawing upon international experience of the past 300 years and the history and realities of China's international modernization, the official said.
The report has been published and distributed as a single volume by the Beijing University Publishing House.
