Rising China, a source of stability

71

 

Beaming with excitement and confidence, the Chinese people celebrated 73rd anniversary of the founding of their country on Saturday with zeal and fervour.

As part of celebrations, series of events and activities will continue for full one week. Given the successes and progress achieved by China in every field be it economy or technology, the Chinese people have every reason to rejoice this occasion.

During last seven decades, China continued the forward march that in fact is a source of inspiration for many.

The credit definitely goes to hard work, commitment and honesty of the Chinese people and their leadership who positively pursued their goals without any deviation.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in his congratulatory message also alluded to the work ethic and national discipline of Chinese people.

Regardless of all the challenges both internal and external, it was sheer dedication that China managed to achieve an unprecedented feat of lifting eight hundred million people out of poverty.

This year’s celebrations are also momentous for the Chinese people as just a day before the National Day, Chinese first homegrown project of C 919 jetliner obtained type certification, a milestone on its journey to market operation.

In addition, China’s space station lab module Wentian successfully completed in-orbit transposition.

This was the first time that Chinese astronauts sent anniversary messages to motherland from space.

The advancement being achieved by China should not be a matter of concern for anybody in view of its peaceful foreign policy.

Chinese President Xi Jinping’s vision of a common prosperity has given hope to developing countries especially those in neighbourhood.

PM Shehbaz Sharif rightly pointed out that Chinese template of inter-state relations prioritises cooperation over confrontation and that peaceful rise of China as the second largest economy and paramount global power is a source of stability in a perpetually changing world.

China is a reality and other global powers should accept it. Rather they should join hands with Beijing to cope with the challenges such as climate change, which pose risk to humanity’s existence.

While people of Pakistan extend their heartiest felicitations to the Chinese friends on their National Day, we are confident that both Pakistan and China together will achieve new milestones in their bilateral relationship in months and years ahead. The CPEC provides them the platform to take their relationship to new heights.
