On January 24, 2023, Mme. Guo Haiyan, Chinese Ambassador to Guyana, published an article entitled "Join Hands to Build a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind and Realize Modernization" in the Guyana Chronicle newspaper. Below is the full article:

At the beginning of the new year, I was invited to attend several sod-turning or ribbon-cutting ceremonies of different projects. Through the media, I also learned of ambitious development plans of the Government of Guyana. I am excited about the strong momentum of Guyana’s economic and social transformation and pleased with the fruitful results of China’s participation and cooperation. As the world’s largest and fastest-growing developing country respectively, China and Guyana’s common goal is to realize modernization. Therefore, our common task ahead is to foster a favorable international circumstance for modernization. 

Last month, the Central Conference on Work Relating to Foreign Affairs was held in Beijing. President Xi Jinping attended the conference and delivered an important address. It was pointed out at the conference that building a community with a shared future for mankind is the lofty goal of China’s diplomacy in the new era, and which is also China’s solution to complete the above-mentioned task. In 2013, President Xi Jinping proposed the idea of building a community with a shared future for mankind. Over the past decade, the initiative has developed from a conceptual proposition to a scientific system.

In summary, in building a community with a shared future for mankind, the goal is to build an open, inclusive, clean and beautiful world of lasting peace, universal security and shared prosperity, the pathway is promoting global governance that features extensive consultation and joint contribution for shared benefit, the guiding principle is to apply the common values of humanity, the basic underpinning lies in building a new type of international relations, the strategic guidance comes from the implementation of the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative, and the platform for action is high-quality Belt and Road cooperation. On this basis, we seek to bring countries together to confront challenges and achieve prosperity for all, and usher in a bright future of peace, security, prosperity and progress for our world.

Building a community with a shared future for mankind advocates an equal and orderly multipolar world, in which all countries, regardless of size, are treated as equals, hegemonism and power politics are rejected, and democracy is truly promoted in international relations. To keep the progress toward greater multipolarity generally stable and constructive, the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter must be observed by all, the universally recognized, basic norms governing international relations must be upheld by all, and true multilateralism must be practiced. 

Building a community with a shared future for mankind advocates a universally beneficial and inclusive economic globalization, which meets the common needs of all countries, especially the developing countries, and properly addresses the development imbalances between and within countries resulting from the global allocation of resources. It is important to resolutely oppose the attempt to roll back globalization and abuse the concept of security, oppose all forms of unilateralism and protectionism, firmly promote trade and investment liberalization and facilitation, overcome the structural problems hindering the healthy development of the world economy, and make economic globalization more open, inclusive, balanced and beneficial to all.

Building a community with a shared future for mankind serves as principal guidance for China to develop relations with Guyana. Guyana is China’s good friend and important partner. The development of the two countries is highly complementary and offers each other development opportunities. China is willing to take the high-quality Belt and Road cooperation as a platform, to seek greater complementarity between our development strategies, expand win-win cooperation in areas such as infrastructure, industrial development and green development, and build a more close-knit China-Guyana community with a shared future. China supports Guyana in playing a greater role in international and regional affairs, and stands ready to work with Guyana to jointly promote genuine multilateralism, safeguard the overall interests of developing countries, strive for a favourable international circumstance for the modernization of developing countries, and contribute to  world peace, security, prosperity and progress.
