Chinese president Xi Jinping is calling on Asian countries to build a community of common destiny and welcomed all countries to join the Silk Road initiative and the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

XI Jinping made these remarks in his keynote speech delivered at the opening plenary of the annual conference of the Boao Forum for Asia on Saturday.

CRI's Niu Honglin has more.


"We have only one planet, and countries share one world," said Chinese President Xi Jingping, who concentrated on the concept of an "Asian community of common destiny" in his keynote at the Boao Forum.

He has tabled a four-point proposal, urging all Asian countries to enhance cooperation to promote common regional interests.

"Only through win-win cooperation can we make big and sustainable achievements that are beneficial to all. The old mindset of zero-sum game should give away to a new approach of win-win and all-win cooperation. The interests of others must be accommodated while pursuing one's own interests, and common development must be promoted while seeking one's own development."

President Xi's proposal calls for countries to communicate and collaborate in aspects of accelerating economic development, promoting national and regional security and deepening mutual understanding between countries.

He points out that, as a part of the "Asian community of common destiny", China itself has always been actively pushing forward regional development. Despite adjusting its growth to the new normal, China's economy is still highly resilient and will do its part to contribute to the Asian and world economy.

"This new normal of Chinese economy will continue to bring more opportunities of trade, growth, investment and cooperation for other countries in Asia and beyond. In the coming five years, China will import more than ten trillion dollars of goods, Chinese investment abroad will exceed 500 billion dollars, and more than 500 million outbound visits will be made by Chinese tourists."

Moreover, President Xi stresses that the Chinese initiatives of building a Silk Road economic belt and a 21st century maritime Silk Road not only met the development needs of China, but also of countries along the routes and the region at large.

"In promoting this initiative, China will follow the principle of wide consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits. The programs of development will be open and inclusive, not exclusive. They will be a real chorus comprising all countries along the routes, not a solo for China itself."

He stresses that the "One Belt One Road" initiative and the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank are both open initiatives, saying all countries along the routes in Asia, as well as China's friends and partners around the world, are invited to take an active part in these endeavors.

The AIIB initiative aims to make complementary use of participating countries' unique resource advantages through multilateral mechanisms and multilevel platforms.

On Saturday, Russia and Brazil became the latest countries to apply to join the AIIB as founding members of the China-proposed Bank. Before that, 37 countries have already expressed their willingness to join the group.
