In his New Year's Message in 2020, Chinese President Xi Jinping said:'We are ready to join hands with the people of the rest of the world to actively build the Belt and Road, promote the construction of a community of human destiny and make unremitting efforts to create a better future for mankind.
The year 2020 comes as leaders deliver New Year's addresses. Looking at these speeches, it is not difficult to see how the current world is experiencing a century of unprecedented change, and how that change is viewed is key to affecting global governance.
U.S. President Donald Trump has put a \"Happy New Year\" on social media. For many countries, whether the new year can be happy, face the test, full of uncertainty. The \"anti-globalization\" trend of thought in the United States spread, populism gained momentum, xenophobia, unilateralism and trade protectionism prevailed. With the start of another round of elections in the United States, the election campaigners, in order to pull the vote, the international issues, may increase the uncertainty of the international situation.
In Asia, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in his New Year's speech, advocated \"moving forward with major reforms of the national form\" and reintroducing amendments to the Constitution. Such a statement is reminiscent of previous years, when japan pushed for constitutional amendments and a change in its security policy led to tensions with its asian neighbours. The ups and downs of Japan's relations with China and South Korea in recent years show that facing history and facing the future is the political basis of cooperation between Japan and its neighboring countries, especially with China.
In Europe, British Prime Minister John Johnson vowed in his New Year's address to \"go all out and make a successful exit this month,\" expressing hope that people will say goodbye to \"uncertainties that divide, resent and hinder the country for too long \"and bring the country together in 2020. It is only time that \"Brexit \"to stir up British politics and continental Europe will end up as a self-brewed \"beau \"that supporters expect, or a \"bitter \"that opponents have to swallow. In her New Year's speech, German Chancellor Angela Merkel referred to the rise of far-right forces at home. In fact, populism and far-right forces are gaining ground in a number of countries, particularly in Europe and Latin America, where right-wing populism is shaping up to have an impact on national politics and the international situation.
Every family has its own scriptures. A peaceful and stable international environment will help countries concentrate their efforts on advancing their respective development processes. From an international point of view, it is the only way to meet all kinds of global challenges and risks by adhering to openness and win-win cooperation. In a world of chaos, unilateralism, protectionism, and populism will only add chaos to the world.
Where human society is headed will depend on the choices made by countries on such important issues as opening and closing, cooperation and confrontation, multilateralism and unilateralism. As a leader, it is the responsibility of leaders of all countries, especially leaders of major powers, to jump out of their own domestic political \"small world \", bravely shoulder the mission of contributing to world development and human progress, lead in the right direction in changing situations and chaos, overcome difficulties in risks and challenges, actively talk and coordinate, promote openness and cooperation and achieve common development. In this regard, a China that is constantly opening up and seeking win-win cooperation demonstrates to the world the responsibility of a responsible power.
