[The world sees China] Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region focus on the process of the two sessions in China.

  Cctv newsOn the 11th, the first meeting of the 13th National People’s Congress passed the amendment to the Constitution, which is an important milestone in the history of China’s constitutional development and a historic moment in the process of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and will write a new chapter in national governance. People from all walks of life overseas believe that China will take this opportunity to keep pace with the times, which will further ensure the steady and far-reaching development of China in the new era.

  记者 金东:大家好,世界看中国,我现在是在央视亚太中心站所在地香港,这里是香港的金紫荆广场,11日下午,十三届全国人大一次会议第三次全体会议经投票表决,通过了《中华人民共和国宪法修正案》,在这个时候亚太各国的主流媒体对此是予以高度关注,在亚洲地区的《印度时报》,澳大利亚的《悉尼先驱者晨报》,以及新加坡的《联合早报》,都在表决通过之后,第一时间发布相关的文章。

  《联合早报》在网站发表一篇快讯,题目是,中国全国人大高票通过宪法修正案,文章除了叙述表决结果之外,还描述了现场情况。文章说,中外媒体坐在人民大会堂二楼,投票全过程向媒体开放,当中共中央总书记、中国国家主席习近平将表决票投入投票箱时,现场响起热烈掌声。

  除了媒体报道之外,亚太多国的政界人士和专家也发表了积极评论。

  缅甸人民院法案委员会秘书长吴觉梭林认为,对宪法进行修改正是中国共产党、中国政府和人民,基于时代发展要求作出的最新努力,是国家发展迈出的重要步伐,将谱写国家治理新篇章。

  柬埔寨战略研究所副所长强万纳里认为,中国对宪法的修改有利于巩固和加强中国共产党的领导,有利于将改革发展推向深入。

  记者 金东Media, experts and scholars in Asia-Pacific countries also believe that China’s necessary revision and improvement of the current constitution is an important measure to conform to the development of the times, reflect the broad public opinion, and advance the overall rule of law and modernize the national governance system and governance capacity.

  According to observation, another hot spot that Asia-Pacific countries pay attention to the two sessions is the topic of economic development. In his government work report this year, Premier Li Keqiang pointed out that China’s GDP growth target is 6.5% in 2018, which makes the Asia-Pacific countries once again feel that China is sending a positive and stable development signal. To put it more bluntly, everyone feels very practical and at ease.

  Because, in the past two years, China’s economy has made great contributions to the economic growth of the world, the Asia-Pacific region and East Asia. It has contributed more than 30% of the global economic growth, more than 50% to the Asia-Pacific region and more than 70% to East Asia. Therefore, it is very beneficial to the development of the Asia-Pacific region to set the target of 6.5% GDP growth this time.

 

  Thai Deputy Prime Minister Wei Sanou(China’s economic growth) deserves our close attention. It is a very challenging job for the China government to put forward this standard for its own GDP growth rate. The GDP growth problem is also a challenge for the whole world, including Thailand, and we all need to find more specific countermeasures.

  Ruan Rongguang, Senior Consultant, Vietnam Center for Strategic Studies and International DevelopmentI think China will achieve its first century-long goal by 2020, that is, the goal of building a well-off society in an all-round way. It is amazing that China has maintained a growth rate of more than 6.5%.

  记者 金东The expert’s analysis is very thorough and accurate. In the future, China’s GDP will keep growing at more than 6.5%, which shows that China’s economy is growing steadily, which is a good phenomenon. This shows that in the past period, the downward pressure on China’s economy has been alleviated, and even bottomed out. Moreover, in the next few years, the total GDP of China will continue to rise, and the per capita GDP will also rise. We will cross the dilemma of the so-called middle-income trap and realize a well-off society in an all-round way by 2020.

  In addition, countries in the Asia-Pacific region also pay great attention to the current economic situation in China, how to achieve steady growth in China in the future, and how to achieve the goal of economic growth through deepening reform.

  During the two sessions, media from all over the world paid great attention to the "the belt and road initiative" initiative that China is actually promoting. China not only pays attention to its own development, but also hopes to make the whole world a better place.

  Next, I will invite Vice Minister Li Guofeng from China Merchants Overseas Development Business Department.

  记者 金东Hello, Vice Minister Li. I’d like you to talk about the global layout of China Merchants the belt and road initiative, its strategic significance and the benefits it brings to other countries.

 

  Li Guofeng, Vice Minister of Overseas Business Department of China Merchants Group Co., Ltd.:招商局是一家总部在香港的中央企业,我们立足香港,积极践行习主席提出的“一带一路”倡议。目前在境外实体企业约200家,分布于五大洲43个国家和地区,大都位于“一带一路”沿线的重要点位。

  招商局对“一带一路”建设有三方面积极贡献,一是布局全球港口网络,二是贯通中欧物流大通道,三是复制“蛇口模式”,分享“中国经验”。

  习近平主席对“一带一路”建设提出了明确要求,要共商、共建、共享。要把这些理念落到实处,就必须站在东道国角度来考虑问题。招商局融资建设的吉布提多哈雷多功能港口一期去年5月份举行开港仪式,吉布提总统感慨到,西方人来了100多年,我们的国家还是这么穷,中国招商局才来了3年,就让我们国家发生了这么大的变化,让吉布提看到了希望。所以说我们的“一带一路”项目带动沿线国家共同发展,所以受到这些国家的普遍欢迎。

  记者 金东:感谢李副部长精彩的点评。两会还在召开,世界的目光依旧聚焦中国,亚太各国都认为,中国是世界经济发展的重要引擎,两会释放出的一些新的智慧,新的方案不仅对中国未来的发展产生影响,同时也对亚太地区乃至全世界产生非常积极的重要影响。
