The development of globalization, today’s economic environment, brings light to common challenges in a pursuit of common prosperity.  Leaders from around the world, people from all countries, are encouraged to jointly build a community with a shared future.

Summary

World economic growth slowed in the first three quarters of 2018.  The U.S. dollar appreciated.  The China-U.S. trade friction brings uncertainty to global governance.  The international community is waiting for the leaders of all countries to abandon prejudice and egoism in order to undertake responsibilities and make contributions to coping with challenges.  Guided by the principles of peace, sovereignty, inclusiveness and shared governance, the world should turn the deep seas, the polar regions, outer space and the Internet into new frontiers for cooperation rather than a wrestling ground.

“Humankind has reached an age of great progress, great transformation and profound changes from historical perspective.”  Chinese President Xi Jinping.  (The Economist.  At a Crossroads.  Nov. 10, 2018.  Page 20.)
