“Global growth is shadowed by protectionism and unilateralism.
…key engine driving global growth…however not all are success story…WW2 for instance…..not far from where we are meeting today was a scene of bloody battle….ancient Chinese saying …..one should clean the mirror before looking at the mirror….one must learn from the lessons of the past before embarking on the future… Short Sighed approach of Protectionism and Unilateralism must to overshadow global cooperation in APEC….
Right approach needed….protectionism and unilateralism will not solve our problems. Once who closes his door will cut himself off from rest of the world. We should set our sight on free trade area of APC….NO to protectionism and unilateralism….We should pursue development to benefit ALL people…..No one has the right to stop people from the developing countries to enjoy qualities of life….it is a moral responsibilities of developed countries to share gains to developing countries We developed countries should honor and increase support to developing countries…..
Take an inclusive approach and promote interaction will all members of APEC and rest of the world…This planet we called home is one planet only we have…..it has some 2000 countries and 7 billion people…difference will not solve problem…diversity and integration is the way forward …reject prejudice…embrace diversity….promote coexistence in harmony… we should pursue innovation to growth….green energy…..New business …big data…AI ….in a boat race those who paddle the hardest will win…..we should promote innovation…The sweeping Technology Revolution will change the world forever….
Developed country should not promote profit making took from Scientific and Technological Inventions. Developed countries has a key role and moral duty to play to lower the gap of Technological Divide……fruits of Innovation and technology must reach more people in the developing countries . Developing countries must have more say in the reform in global trade ….
History has shown that confrontation in the form of Cold War or Hot War will produce no winner. China embarked in 1978 on the great Reform. Over the past 40 years China made solid progress….believe in self reliant and turn into a world’s second largest economy….it is the relentless effort of the Chinese people that made China to what you see today. Attract 2 trillion dollars in foreign investment. Guided by people centred development policies.Took 780 million people out of poverty. Established the world largest social safety network. Actively supported other developing countries pursue development agendas and priorities. China Enhance connectivity through the one belt one road initiative (BRI). BRI is a platform for Connectivity and inclusive policy.
It is not a trap as some people as labeled it…it is transparent and inclusive. In April next year China will host the belt and road roadshow in Beijing and invite all international communities to attend.” President of the Republic of China President Xi Jingping. Powerful Speech.
