Principles of Global Governance
In his report to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping declared, “China will continue to play its part as a major and responsible country, take an active part in reforming and developing the global governance system and keep contributing Chinese wisdom and strength to global governance.” China follows the principle of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration in engaging in global governance. China stands for democracy in international relations and the equality of all countries, big or small, strong or weak, rich or poor. China supports the United Nations in playing an active role in international affairs, and supports the efforts of other developing countries to increase their representation and strengthen their voice in international affairs.
Along with promoting the transformation of the global governance system, China has drawn up its own plans to tackle major issues in global governance. On several diplomatic occasions, Xi stated China’s views and offered China’s solutions for many issues including major country relations, economic globalization, the internet, the environment, the oceans, security, polar regions, outer space, nuclear security, poverty relief, sustainable development and cultural exchange, forming a multi-tiered and multifaceted plan for global governance covering economics, politics, culture, environment and security.
