Belt and Road Initiative to benefit all

By Zhou Li | China Daily | Updated: 2018-10-17 07:07

Over the past four decades since reform and opening-up was launched, China has made brilliant achievements in both economic construction and opening-up; its social productivity and comprehensive national strength have risen significantly, and its status and influence in regional and world affairs have increased remarkably.

All these achievements are based on its long-cherished philosophy of peaceful development. China has a profound historical and cultural foundation for its path of peaceful development. Adhering to peaceful development and opening-up for mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation has been written into China's Constitution and an established national development principle.

Since the founding of new China, especially since the introduction of reform and opening-up, Chinese leaders have solemnly declared on many occasions that China will never seek hegemony no matter how developed it becomes. China has never asked other countries to follow or "copy" its development model or other specific practices. It is China's belief that world peace and common development can only be based on mutual respect, mutual cooperation, mutual learning and mutual trust.
