Le Yucheng: Why This Path Has Worked for China

2019/10/22

At the ninth Beijing Xiangshan Forum held on 22 October 2019, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said that in the last seven decades, the Chinese people have found, through painstaking exploration and persistent experiments, a path of development that suits China's national conditions. That is the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The Chinese believe that "among the thousand different paths in existence, what has worked for one is the one that matters." The Chinese miracle is more than the renewal of a big, ancient country in the East. It is also, and more important, about the success of a new trail in quest of development. One may wonder where lies the strength of this path that has worked for China. The strength lies in its independence, taking control of one's own destiny rather than copying others or living on handouts. The strength lies in the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) whereby the Party plays an overarching role to bring together the strongest possible resources of the whole nation. The strength lies in the philosophy of governing for the people and by the people which orients toward the people's wish for a better life and relies on the people for big undertakings. The strength lies in the policy of reform and opening-up, enabling China to keep abreast of the times and progress with the rest of the world through openness and cooperation.
