Xi Jinping: I visited most of the poorest regions in China

Recalling the course of poverty reduction in China for decades, I have a profound experience. In the late 1960s, when I was under the age of 16, I came from Beijing to a small village in northern Shaanxi as a peasant. I worked for 7 years. At that time, poverty in rural China left me with unforgettable memories. I worked hard with the villagers to make life better, but it was harder than it was in the past. For more than 40 years, I have worked in China’s counties, cities, provinces, and the central government. Poverty alleviation has always been an important part of my work. I have spent the most energy. I have visited most of the most impoverished areas in China, including Shaanxi, Gansu, Ningxia, Guizhou, Yunnan, Guangxi, Tibet and Xinjiang. In these two years, I went to more than a dozen impoverished areas and went to the villagers to chat with them. Their lives are difficult, and I feel embarrassed. I feel happy every time they live better.

Twenty-five years ago, I worked in the Ningde region of Fujian Province, China. I remembered the saying of the ancient Chinese: “If you are a good person, if you meet the people like your parents, you will love your child and your brother’s brother. His labor is sad. “So far, this sentence is still in my heart.

Since the establishment of the BRIC mechanism in 2006, 10 years have passed so far. “The people who want to work together are not far from the mountains and seas.” With the joint efforts of the “BRIC Five Countries,” the cooperation has yielded fruitful results.

All countries develop together

★ Our common desires and responsibilities

Comrades, not far from the sea. Our five countries from four continents of the world have come together to build a partnership and realize the grand goal of common development. We have come together to promote the democratization of international relations and promote the noble cause of human peace and development. To seek peace, seek development, promote cooperation, and achieve win-win results are our common aspirations and responsibilities.

– On March 27, 2013, a speech was given at the fifth meeting of BRICS leaders in Durban, South Africa

★ Committed to common development with all countries in the world

The cooperation of the BRICS countries is not independent, but is committed to common development with all countries in the world.

As long as the BRICS countries enhance political mutual trust, pool strategic consensus, issue more voices, and propose more proposals, they can contribute more to promoting world economic growth, improving global economic governance, and promoting world peace and development.

They are committed to promoting world economic growth, improving global economic governance, and promoting the democratization of international relations. They have become an important force in international relations and an active builder of the international system.

The BRICS countries are fair and impartial, and they are committed to building a fair and fair world. This is a positive energy in international relations. We should amplify this positive energy and work out plans in international affairs to achieve justice and practice equality.

– On July 15, 2014, a speech was given at the sixth meeting of BRICS leaders in Fortaleza, Brazil

★ BRIC countries’ opportunities and challenges coexist

The more difficult it is, the more confident it is. It should be noted that any progress is not linear, and there are twists and turns. Despite these difficulties, the BRICS countries have abundant natural and human resources, a vast domestic market, great potential for development, and abundant policy space. The rising trend will not change.

At present, the international situation is complicated and the BRIC countries have both opportunities and challenges. We should strengthen cooperation and go hand in hand, and continue to be leaders in promoting global development.

– On July 9, 2015, a speech was made at the 7th meeting of leaders of the BRICS countries in Ufa, Russia

★ BRIC cooperation is an innovation

Under the current chaotic international situation, BRICS countries face common tasks. They must safeguard the stability and development of their respective countries, create a favorable international environment, and promote the international order to develop in a more just and reasonable direction. The BRICS cooperation is an innovation that transcends the old routines of political and military alliances, establishes new relations with partners and alliances, transcends the old thinking lined with ideology, and embarks on a new path of mutual respect and common progress; You lose the old concept of winning and winning, and practice new ideas of mutual benefit, cooperation and mutual benefit. The BRIC cooperation mechanism meets the objective needs of the five countries and also conforms to the historical trend.

— On June 19, 2017, the collective meeting with the head of the foreign delegation of the foreign ministers of the BRICS countries pointed out

Multi-field cooperation

★ Big country cooperation win-win and benign interaction

We should adhere to an open spirit, give play to our comparative advantages, strengthen mutual economic cooperation, nurture a global market, improve the global value chain, and be an open world economic builder. We should adhere to the spirit of tolerance, promote the mutual acceptance of different social systems, recognize different cultures and civilizations, and reciprocate different development models, and be the practitioners of democratization in international relations. We should adhere to the spirit of cooperation, continue to strengthen unity, take care of each other’s concerns, deepen pragmatic cooperation, work together for the economic growth of all countries, and provide impetus for the improvement of global governance. We should adhere to the spirit of win-win, and take into account the interests of other countries while pursuing our own interests, so as to benefit our country and the world and promote a way to win a mutually beneficial and beneficial interaction with a big country.

In response to the shared public health challenge, the BRICS countries have established a high-level dialogue mechanism to promote health cooperation among BRICS countries. I believe that this session will promote mutual exchange of experience and consensus among BRICS countries and all countries concerned and work together to meet global health challenges.

Chinese medicine is an outstanding representative among them, and its unique advantages in the aspects of disease prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation are widely recognized by people in many countries.

I believe that as long as we uphold the open, inclusive, cooperative, and win-win spirit of the BRICS, we will not be disturbed by the wind and rain, disturbed by noises, and will not be hindered by difficulties. We will continue to strengthen our partnership and the BRICS will surely achieve greater development.

★ Cooperation maintains good development momentum

Since the beginning of this year, cooperation among BRICS countries has maintained a good momentum of development, and the fields have been further expanded and the results have been further demonstrated. The BRICS countries are the leaders of emerging market countries and developing countries and are also important members of the G20. We must follow the trend of history, grasp the international trend, strengthen coordination and cooperation, and work together to build, maintain, and develop the two important platforms of the BRICS and the G20, and promote emerging market countries and developing countries in international affairs. Play a greater role.

At present, the world economy is undergoing transitions between old and new kinetic energy, and the recovery is slow and sluggish. The international environment in which the BRICS countries are located has generally remained stable, but it has also been frequent. Faced with the new situation, we must strengthen our confidence and maintain our determination to see the volume and potential of the BRICS countries and to see the vitality of emerging market countries represented by the BRICS countries and developing countries. As long as we consolidate our strengths and strengths, solve the current problems and challenges, strengthen solidarity and deepen mutual trust and cooperation, we will certainly be able to usher in a new situation of BRIC cooperation.
