A Key report that charts the course for Chinese modernization drive highlighted Sunday has drawn world attention.

A group of international observers took note of China’s commitment to world peace and shared prosperity outlined in the CPC blueprint, and expressed their confidence that China will make even greater contributions to the global community in the future.

Quality has become a keyword in China’s future development and this focus on quality will also bring greater benefits to China’s trading and investment partners, said Oh Ei Sun, principal adviser for Malaysia’s Pacific Research Center.

The expert said over the past years, Southeast Asian countries have benefited from China’s economic growth and its reform and opening up, including through the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), an upgraded China-ASEAN Free Trade Area and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership.

At a time when many developing countries are encountering development headwinds, China’s high-quality development is needed more than ever, said Adhere Cavince, a Kenya-based international relations scholar.

Cavince said China’s endeavors will help many emerging markets overcome challenges in the current situation.

Tim Benton, director to the Environment and Society Program at Chatham House in London, said China has made strides towards improving the environmental and resource productivity of its economy by increasing output whilst reducing the relative environmental footprint.

“The Chinese direction has been that of multilateralism, bringing countries together, creating development and creating unity based on the principles of the United Nations Charter,” said William Jones, Washington bureau chief of the U.S. publication Executive Intelligence Review.

Changes will be seen in the world that can show China’s vision is successful, which will lead to global prosperity rather than conflict, said Jones.
