|Wang Qishan Attends and Addresses the Opening Ceremony of the Eighth World Peace Forum|
On July 8, 2019, the Eighth World Peace Forum, under the theme of "Stabilizing the World Order: Common Responsibilities, Joint Management and Shared Benefits", was held at Tsinghua University. Vice President Wang Qishan attended and addressed the opening ceremony.
Wang Qishan said, with the founding of New China, the Chinese people, through their extraordinary efforts, have achieved the historic progress from struggling for subsistence to a moderately prosperous society in all respects, heralding bright prospects for the great renewal of the Chinese nation. China cannot develop by shutting itself from the world, nor can the world develop by shutting out China. Committed to the path of peaceful development, China will never seek hegemony, expansion or sphere of influence. In the face of transformation and adjustment of the current international order, China has come up with the proposition to build a new type of international relations and a community with a shared future for mankind, consolidate multilateralism as a cornerstone, explore more avenues to achieve development for all, promote mutual learning among civilizations and jointly respond to new challenges facing humanity. China calls on all countries to stay committed to peaceful development, unswervingly advance economic globalization and jointly build an international order that is more fair, equitable, stable and effective.
