na­tional or­der, con­trib­ute to the con­struc­tion of a multi-po­lar world, pro­mote demo­cratic in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions, as well as cre­ate a fair and just in­ter­na­tional or­der and sys­tem. BRICS is com­mit­ted to es­tab­lish­ing a com­mu­nity of shared fu­ture for hu­mankind by con­tribut­ing cre­ative thoughts and plans to­wards the com­mon pros­per­ity of hu­man so­ci­ety.

Un­der the global cir­cum­stances de­fined by, more than any­thing else, changes and sna­fus, the pri­or­ity of all BRICS mem­bers is to main­tain do­mes­tic sta­bil­ity and devel­op­ment, and thereby fos­ter a whole­some in­ter­na­tional en­vi­ron­ment, and nudge the in­ter­na­tional or­der to­wards greater jus­tice and fair­ness. BRICS is a fledg­ing but promis­ing mech­a­nism, and BRICS co­op­er­a­tion re­flects the shared wish of emerg­ing economies as well as the new de­mands of in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions. It stands in sharp con­trast to the Cold War men­tal­ity.

The BRICS coun­tries have sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ences in his­tory, the same devel­op­ment sta­tus, and shared goals for the fu­ture. Fol­low­ing the spirit of open­ness, in­clu­sive­ness, and win-win re­sults, their co­op­er­a­tion has shown great vi­tal­ity, press­ing ahead stead­fastly.

Work­ing for New In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions

The year 2017 is another mile­stone in the devel­op­ment of BRICS. In its ca­pac­ity as the ro­tat­ing pres­i­dent, China will, to­gether with the other four coun­tries, usher BRICS co­op­er­a­tion into its sec­ond decade. To pur­sue greater suc­cess for this pe­riod, the group will, among other mea­sures, strengthen the three cooperative pil­lars – po­lit­i­cal se­cu­rity, econ­omy and fi­nance, and peo­ple-to-peo­ple and cul­tural ex­changes – open up more ar­eas of co­op­er­a­tion, ex­pand the “BRICS Plus” di­a­logue, and build ex­ten­sive part­ner­ships.

Po­lit­i­cally, China stands by the prin­ci­ple of “di­a­logue rather than con­fronta­tion, and part­ner­ship rather than al­liance,” es­pous­ing the pol­icy of amity, sin­cer­ity, mu­tual ben­e­fit, and in­clu­sive­ness in de­vel­op­ing re­la­tions with neigh­bor­ing coun­tries. It will work with other Asian coun­tries to forge a com­mu­nity of a shared fu­ture, and con­duct co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous ar­eas and at var­i­ous lev­els to pro­mote a con­flu­ence of in­ter­ests. Up­hold­ing friend­ship and jus­tice and pur­su­ing the greater good, China will em­pha­size unity and co­op­er­a­tion with other de­vel­op­ing coun­tries in Asia, Africa, and Latin Amer­ica, build­ing a cooperative frame­work with all de­vel­op­ing coun­tries and re­gions and thereby el­e­vat­ing the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween de­vel­op­ing coun­tries to a new level.

Eco­nom­i­cally, China will ad­vance in­clu­sive devel­op­ment. It al­ready con­trib­uted to the world econ­omy through its sta­bled, sus­tained growth in the “new nor­mal” stage. It helped set and im­ple­ment the 2030 Agenda for Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment through its across-the­board par­tic­i­pa­tion in the ne­go­ti­a­tions and co­op­er­a­tion on a range of global is­sues un­der the UN frame­work.
