— GDP growth
Over the past 40 years, China's GDP has averaged an annual growth rate of around 9.5% in comparable prices and its foreign trade has registered an annual growth of 14.5% in US dollar.
— Poverty relief
The Chinese people have emerged from a life of shortages and poverty and are now enjoying abundant supply and a moderately prosperous life.
According to current UN standards, more than 700 million Chinese people have been lifted out of poverty, accounting for more than 70% of the global total over the same period.
— Peace and development
In a world aspiring for peace and development, the cold-war and zero-sum mentality looks even more out of place.
Putting oneself on a pedestal or trying to immune oneself from adverse developments will get nowhere.
No matter how much progress China has made in development, China will not threaten anyone else, attempt to overturn the existing international system, or seek spheres of influence.
China will stay as determined as ever to build world peace, contribute to global prosperity and uphold the international order.
