和平、發展、自主、包容
堅定踐行開放的區域主義
——中國國務委員兼外長王毅在東盟秘書處的演講

(2022年7月11日,雅加達)

Upholding Peace, Development, Independence and Inclusiveness
And Renewing the Firm Commitment to Open Regionalism

Speech by State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi
At the ASEAN Secretariat

Jakarta, 11 July 2022


東盟秘書長拿督林玉輝閣下,
東盟各國常駐代表,
各位使節,各位朋友:

Your Excellency Dato Lim Jock Hoi, Secretary-General of ASEAN,
Permanent Representatives of ASEAN Member States,
Fellow Diplomats and Friends,

很高興來到東盟秘書處,同各位新老朋友通過「雅加達渠道」共話友誼,共謀合作。首先,我謹代表中國政府,對東盟迎來55歲生日表示熱烈祝賀,對關心支持中國東盟合作的朋友們表示衷心感謝!

I am delighted to join so many friends, both old and new, at the ASEAN Secretariat in renewing our friendship and advancing cooperation through the 「Jakarta Channel」. Let me begin by conveying, on behalf of the Chinese government, our warm congratulations on the 55th birthday of ASEAN and a big thank-you to all the friends for your interest in and support for China-ASEAN cooperation.

中國與東盟山水相依、心手相連,始終是命運與共的好鄰居、好朋友、好伙伴。我本人接觸東盟國家事務已有30多年,這些年幾乎每年都要到訪東盟國家,與東盟各國外長經常見面,切身感受到中國東盟關係日新月異、飛速發展。特別是過去十年來,在習近平主席和東盟各國領導人的戰略指引和親自推動下,中國東盟關係更是進入了快車道、跑出了加速度。

Comment by Curation Nation 策展國 on March 18, 2024 at 8:43pm

China and ASEAN are linked by mountains and waters as well as hearts and aspirations. We are always good neighbors, good friends and good partners with a shared future. I have been personally engaging with ASEAN for more than three decades. In recent years, I have visited ASEAN countries almost every year and met with ASEAN foreign ministers frequently. Through my travels and engagements, I am keenly aware of the rapid and phenomenal development of China-ASEAN relations. Over the past 10 years in particular, thanks to the strategic guidance and personal commitment of President Xi Jinping and leaders of ASEAN countries, China-ASEAN relations have entered the 「fast lane」 and made accelerating progress.

回首過往,最令人鼓舞的,是中國東盟關係始終一馬當先。中國率先同東盟建立戰略伙伴關係,率先加入《東南亞友好合作條約》,率先同東盟商談建立自貿區,率先明確支持東盟在區域合作中的中心地位,也是率先公開表示願簽署《東南亞無核武器區條約》議定書的國家。東盟同事告訴我,中國東盟關係在東盟同各對話伙伴關係中最具活力、最富成果。

In retrospect, the most encouraging development was that China-ASEAN relations have stayed ahead in many areas. China was the first to forge a strategic partnership with ASEAN, the first to join the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia, the first to start FTA negotiation with ASEAN, the first to give unequivocal support for ASEAN centrality in regional cooperation, and the first to publicly express its willingness to sign the Protocol to the Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone. My ASEAN colleagues have told me that among ASEAN』s dialogue partners, China has the most vibrant and productive ties with ASEAN.

最令人感動的,是中國和東盟國家同心抗疫,共克時艱。在中國抗疫艱難時刻,東盟國家第一時間關心慰問、捐款捐物,為中國加油鼓勁。在疫情蔓延後,中方對東盟兄弟傾力相助、毫無保留分享抗疫經驗,及時提供疫苗援助,助力東盟打造防疫屏障。雙方抗疫合作生動詮釋了同甘共苦的深厚情誼,樹立了全球抗疫合作的典范。

The most touching event was China and ASEAN countries have been standing together in solidarity to fight COVID-19. When China was hit first by the virus, ASEAN countries immediately expressed solidarity and support and donated in cash and in kind to tide us over the trying time. When ASEAN countries were affected by the pandemic, China did its best to help ASEAN brothers fend off the virus, including sharing COVID response experience without reservation and providing timely vaccine assistance. Our cooperation against COVID-19 was a vivid testament to our deep friendship through thick and thin. Together, we have set a good example of working together to beat the virus.

最令人振奮的,是中國與東盟經貿合作風生水起。如今,中國與東盟已互為最大貿易伙伴,雙邊貿易額較30年前翻了100倍,雙方直接投資額已累計超過3100億美元。中老鐵路順利通車,雅萬高鐵、中泰鐵路、中馬和中印尼「兩國雙園」等一批「一帶一路」共建項目喜報頻傳。

The most heartening progress was the thriving economic cooperation and trade between China and ASEAN. We are each other』s largest trading partner. Our trade volume has soared 100 times from 30 years before. Our two-way direct investment has exceeded US$310 billion. The China-Laos railway is up and running. Good progress has been made in the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway, the China-Thailand railway, the China-Malaysia and China-Indonesia 「twin industrial parks」, and a number of other Belt and Road projects.

最令人欣慰的,是中國與東盟安全合作穩步前行。《南海各方行為宣言》全面落實,「南海行為准則」磋商積極推進,分歧爭議得到有效管控,海上局勢保持總體穩定,航行與飛越自由從未發生問題。軍事安全交流走向深入,反恐、應對氣變、網絡安全、打擊跨國犯罪、防災減災等非傳統安全領域合作成果豐碩。

The most gratifying achievement was that China-ASEAN security cooperation has been making steady progress. With full implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC), and positive progress in the consultations of a code of conduct in the South China Sea (COC), differences and disputes are being effectively managed. The situation on the sea has remained stable on the whole, and there has been no problem with the freedom of navigation and overflight. Military and security exchanges have deepened, and fruitful cooperation has been carried out in non-traditional security areas such as counter-terrorism, climate response, cybersecurity, combating transnational crime, and disaster preparedness and reduction.

在中國東盟建立對話關係30周年之際,習近平主席與東盟各國領導人共同宣布建立中國東盟全面戰略伙伴關係,提出共建「五大家園」藍圖,為雙方關係的未來發展明確了前進方向。今年是建設中國東盟全面戰略伙伴關係的開局之年。我們要開好局、起好步,帶好頭,團結一心,攜手前行。讓中國東盟合作繼續走在時代前列,讓和平進步的力量越聚越強。

In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of China-ASEAN dialogue relations, President Xi Jinping made five proposals on building our home together, and announced together with ASEAN leaders the establishment of a China-ASEAN Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, pointing the way forward for the growth of China-ASEAN relations. With this year being the first year for building the China-ASEAN comprehensive strategic partnership, we should get off to a good start, make solid steps, and lead the way forward. We should get united, and join hands together to keep China-ASEAN cooperation at the forefront of the times and galvanize stronger force for peace and progress.

各位朋友,

Friends,

今年是東盟成立55周年。這55年,東盟經歷了從無到有、從小到大、從弱到強,走出了一條不平凡的發展道路。同時,這55年,也是亞洲騰飛崛起的黃金年代。

This year marks the 55th anniversary of ASEAN. Over the past 55 years, ASEAN has embarked on an extraordinary development path from early inception to steady growth in size and strength. Meanwhile, the past 55 years was also a golden era of Asia』s rise and take-off.

和平、發展、自主、包容:堅定踐行開放的區域主義——王毅國務委員兼外長在東盟秘書處的演講,2022年7月11日,雅加達)2022-07-13

Comment by Curation Nation 策展國 on March 13, 2024 at 6:54pm
在地區各國共同努力下,今天的亞洲已躍升為發展的高地、合作的熱土。前不久,博鰲亞洲論壇發布的《亞洲經濟前景及一體化進程》報告指出,2021年亞洲在全球疫情下率先實現復蘇,成為全球經濟增長的重要引擎。今年初,《區域全面經濟伙伴關係協定》(RCEP)——這一世界上規模最大的自貿區正式生效實施,給地區發展注入了強勁動力。 

With concerted efforts of all countries in the region, Asia has become a highland of development and promising land for cooperation. Recently, the Boao Forum for Asia published the Asian Economic Outlook and Integration Progress Annual Report, which pointed out that in 2021, Asia was the first to recover amid the global pandemic, and that Asia became an important engine for global economic growth. Early this year, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement, the world』s largest free trade area, officially went into effect, injecting strong impetus to regional development.

 

在地區各國的共同努力下,今天的亞洲也正在成為全球治理的樣板。特別是今年多邊議程齊聚亞洲,中國成功舉辦金磚國家領導人會晤,柬埔寨、印尼、泰國將分別主辦東亞合作領導人系列會議、二十國集團領導人峰會、亞太經合組織領導人非正式會議。各方目光轉向「亞洲地區」,全球治理迎來「亞洲時刻」,國際社會需要傾聽「亞洲聲音」。

With concerted efforts of all countries in the region, Asia is also becoming a fine example of global governance. Most notably, a number of key multilateral events will be held in Asia this year. China has successfully hosted the BRICS Summit, and Cambodia, Indonesia and Thailand will host the leaders』 meetings on East Asia cooperation, the G20 Summit, and the APEC Economic Leaders』 Meeting respectively. The world』s attention is turning to the Asian region, global governance has ushered in the moment of Asia, and the international community needs to listen attentively to the voice of Asia. 


我們這個地區之所以能取得如此輝煌的發展成就,能創造世人矚目的成長奇跡,關鍵在於地區各國始終堅持開放的區域主義。我們尊重並欣賞成員的多樣性,堅持並踐行自主自願的原則,以自由貿易推動地區經濟一體化,以平等協商推進區域和次區域合作,以開放心態構建起遍布全球的朋友圈。

Our region has secured such remarkable achievements in development and created exceptional miracles in growth, most fundamentally because countries in the region have adhered to open regionalism, respected and appreciated the diversities among members, and upheld and practiced the principle of voluntarism. We have advanced regional economic integration through free trade, promoted regional and sub-regional cooperation via equal consultation, and developed networks of friends worldwide with an open mindset.


當前,亞洲正站在新的歷史起點上,面臨著前所未有的發展機遇。同時,我們也要看到,當今世界並不太平,圍繞亞洲的前途,出現了兩種截然不同的走向。一種是堅持開放的區域主義,維護真正的多邊主義,堅持發展優先,致力互利合作,推動地區國家盡早走出疫情實現全面發展。另一種是重拾冷戰式舊思維,再搞封閉式集團政治,把地區國家按價值觀分類,將區域經濟陣營化,甚至將亞太安全北約化。

Asia is standing at a new historical starting point and facing unprecedented development opportunities. But we must also be aware that the world today is not peaceful, and there are two completely different trends concerning the future of Asia. One advocates open regionalism, true multilateralism, a development-first approach and mutually beneficial cooperation; it aims to help countries in the region emerge from the pandemic and achieve all-round development as soon as possible. The other pursues a relapse into the obsolete Cold War mentality and closed group politics, and classifies countries in the region based on their values; it attempts to divide the regional economy into different blocs and even apply the NATO approach to Asia-Pacific security.

Comment by Curation Nation 策展國 on March 8, 2024 at 8:46pm

我們今天的選擇,將決定今後的道路通向何方,開放還是封閉,合作還是對抗,團結還是分裂,進步還是倒退,將從根本和長遠上影響地區各國未來的前途與命運。

The choice we make today determines where the path will take us from now on — openness or isolation, cooperation or confrontation, solidarity or division, progress or regression. It will have a fundamental and far-reaching impact on the future of all countries in the region.

「與時偕行天地寬」,歷史和現實告訴我們,無論是一個國家,還是一個地區,只有順應時代潮流,才能與時代同行。習近平主席多次指出,開放是亞太合作的生命線,要堅持開放的區域主義。因此,中國的選擇是,同包括東盟在內的地區各國一道,秉持和平、發展、自主、包容的理念,堅定不移地踐行開放的區域主義,同時從亞洲的文明和實踐中汲取經驗智慧,不斷為開放的區域主義注入新的時代內涵。

As a Chinese saying goes, 「Advancing with the times opens up new horizons.」 Both history and reality show that a country, or a region for that matter, can only make progress when it follows the trend of the times. President Xi Jinping has pointed out on multiple occasions that openness is the lifeline of Asia-Pacific cooperation and that we need to uphold open regionalism. Therefore, China chooses to join hands with ASEAN members and other regional countries to adhere to the vision of peace, development, independence and inclusiveness, firmly uphold open regionalism and, by drawing experience and wisdom from Asian civilizations and practices, constantly add new dimensions to open regionalism.

我們要始終堅持和平共處的理念。歷史上,中國與東南亞等周邊國家保持和睦相處,留下了親仁善鄰、永世修好的佳話。上世紀50年代,我們共同倡導和平共處五項原則,使國家不分大小強弱都有了享受和平的權力。過去半個世紀,本地區探索形成了以相互尊重、協商一致、照顧各方舒適度等為重要原則的東盟方式,也就是亞洲方式,建立起多元化多層次的安全架構,培育出共同安全、合作安全、綜合安全的正向思維,為亞洲持久和平的大廈打牢了樁基。

We need to always uphold the concept of peaceful coexistence. In history, China lived in harmony with Southeast Asian countries and other neighbors, leaving touching stories of good neighborliness and enduring friendship. In the 1950s, we together advocated the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, under which all countries enjoy rights to peace regardless of their size and strength. Over the past half century, the region has developed the ASEAN way, namely, the Asian way, underpinned by major principles such as mutual respect, consensus-building, and accommodating the comfort levels of all parties. It has established a diversified and multi-layered security architecture, and fostered a proactive thinking of pursuing common, cooperative and comprehensive security. All this has laid a solid foundation for lasting peace in Asia.

當前,國際安全危機頻發給世人敲響警鐘,告誡我們和平絕非一勞永逸,需要悉心呵護,備加珍惜。我們絕不允許把地緣衝突、集團對抗引入亞洲,絕不希望制裁封鎖、人道危機發生在亞洲。不久前,習近平主席提出了全球安全倡議,為彌補全球和平赤字、破解全球安全困境提供了中國方案。我們有必要旗幟鮮明地堅持共同、綜合、合作、可持續的安全觀。堅持維護各國主權和領土完整,堅持重視各國的合理安全關切,堅持通過對話協商以和平方式解決分歧和爭端,守護好我們的共同家園,守護住和平穩定的底線。

At present, frequent international security crises are sounding the alarm for mankind. It is a stark reminder that peace should never be taken for granted and must be carefully preserved and cherished. We should never allow any attempt to extend geopolitical conflicts or bloc confrontation to Asia, nor do we want to see any sanction, blockade or humanitarian crisis in this part of the world. Not long ago, President Xi Jinping put forward the Global Security Initiative (GSI), offering China』s solution to global peace deficit and global security dilemma. It is necessary that we unequivocally champion the vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security. We need to stay committed to safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries, taking seriously the legitimate security concerns of all countries, and resolving differences and disputes in a peaceful way through dialogue and consultation, in a bid to protect our shared home and defend our fundamental interest in peace and stability.

我們要始終堅持發展振興的目標。歷史上亞洲經濟總量曾長期佔世界一半以上,但近代以來亞洲停滯落後了。今天,亞洲發展進步的閘門已完全打開,亞洲復興繁榮的洪流正奔湧而出。亞洲僅用一代人的時間就實現了經濟總量佔世界比重的翻倍,實現了從低收入到中等收入的躍進。亞洲的發展,是亞洲各國人民勤勤懇懇干出來的,我們沒有搞過對外殖民掠奪,沒有動過域外國家的奶酪,更沒有想要取代誰趕走誰,我們只想讓我們的人民過上更加幸福的生活。

We need to always uphold the goal of development and rejuvenation. For a long period of time in history, the Asian economy accounted for over half of the world』s total. In modern times however, its development stagnated and fell behind. Today, the valve to Asia』s development and progress is fully open, unleashing a strong momentum of rejuvenation and prosperity in the region. In only one generation』s time, Asia doubled its share of global GDP and transformed itself from a low-income region to a middle-income one. Asia』s development is attributed to the hard work of people of all Asian countries. We never committed colonial plunder or moved the 「cheese」 of any country outside the region, still less trying to replace or drive away anyone. All we want is to bring a better life to our peoples.

當前,亞洲經濟中的風險因素上升,地區產業鏈供應鏈穩定受到沖擊,「脫鉤」、「斷鏈」的雜音不斷。習近平主席提出全球發展倡議,為國際社會合力應對挑戰,促進世界經濟復蘇,加快落實聯合國2030年可持續發展議程凝聚了共識,提供了助力。我們有必要繼續堅持發展導向,正確看待彼此發展,共享發展機遇,共同維護以世界貿易組織為基石的多邊貿易體制,確保全球市場自由開放,促進經濟融合發展。

At present, the Asian economy is facing growing risks, with disruptions to the stability of regional industrial and supply chains and unabated noises of 「decoupling」 and 「severing supply chains」. The Global Development Initiative (GDI) put forth by President Xi Jinping has pooled consensus and strength for the collective efforts of the international community to meet challenges, drive global economic recovery and accelerate the implementation of UN』s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is necessary that we continue to be development-oriented, form a right perception of each other』s development and share development opportunities. We should together defend the multilateral trading regime with the WTO as the cornerstone, ensure a free and open global market, and promote integrated economic development.

(續上)東盟方面多次強調,東盟印太展望是獨立自主的倡議,堅持開放包容、強調對話合作,聚焦經濟發展,不依附也不針對任何一方。中方贊賞這一立場,願與東盟就落實展望加強對接合作,使對接成果早日落地。

ASEAN has stressed on many occasions that its Outlook on the Indo-Pacific is an independent initiative that commits to openness and inclusiveness and focuses on dialogue, cooperation and economic development, and that it is not subservient to or targeted against any party. China appreciates this position. We would like to increase synergy and cooperation with ASEAN on the implementation of the Outlook to produce cooperation outcomes at an early date.

中國將繼續推動以亞洲方式解決分歧矛盾,維護地區和平穩定。我們願與地區各國攜手落實全球安全倡議,繼續深化防務、反恐、海上聯合搜救和演練,打擊跨國犯罪、災害管理等領域合作,走出對話而不對立、結伴而不結盟,共贏而非零和的新型安全之路,踐行以信為本、以義為先、以誠相待的鄰裡相處之道。

China will continue to call for settling differences in the Asian way and uphold regional peace and stability. We will work with other countries in the region to implement the Global Security Initiative, and deepen cooperation in such areas as defense, counterterrorism, joint maritime search and rescue and exercise, combating transnational crimes, and disaster management. We hope to blaze a new path of security that chooses dialogue over confrontation, partnerships over alliances, and win-win over zero-sum game, and put into practice principles for how neighbors may get along: trust as the basis, the greater good as priority, and sincerity in interaction.

中國和東盟國家正在加快推進「南海行為准則」磋商,這將為更有效管控南海分歧、更有力推進合作、更積極共同治理提供堅實規則保障。我們還將繼續支持東盟建設無核武器區的努力,重申中國隨時願簽署《東南亞無核武器區條約》議定書。

China and ASEAN countries are expediting the COC consultations, which will serve as solid institutional safeguards for more effective management of differences in the South China Sea, more vigorous advancement of cooperation and more active joint governance. We will continue to support ASEAN』s efforts in building a nuclear-weapon-free zone, and reaffirm that China is ready to sign the protocol to the Treaty of Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone at any time.

中國將繼續堅定奉行開放發展戰略,推進地區經濟一體化。我們願加快落實自東盟進口1500億美元農產品,也願進口更多東盟國家的優質產品,鼓勵更多中國企業把東盟作為投資首選目的地。繼續著力促進疫後復蘇,推動建設「一帶一路」中國東盟國際產能合作示范區,推升區域產供鏈韌性,確保跨境貿易暢通。

China will continue to pursue firmly its open strategy for development and promote regional economic integration. We will speed up the importing of US$150 billion worth of ASEAN agricultural goods, bring in more high-quality products from ASEAN countries, and encourage more Chinese companies to make ASEAN their top investment destination. We will continue to promote post-COVID recovery, advance the development of demonstration zones for Belt and Road international industrial capacity cooperation, enhance the resilience of industrial and supply chains in the region, and ensure smooth trade flows across borders.

我們願盡早啟動中國東盟自貿區3.0版建設,全面實施並適時推動升級RCEP。中國加入「全面與進步跨太平洋伙伴關係」和「數字經濟伙伴關係協定」的決心堅定不移,也願與更多國家商簽高標准自貿協定。中國期待將海南自貿港和粵港澳大灣區建設與中國東盟合作有機結合,支持香港、澳門同東盟國家開展更廣泛更緊密的交流合作。


We are ready to launch a new round of upgrade of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area as soon as possible, and implement the RCEP across the board and promote its upgrade in due course. China remains firm in its resolve to join the CPTPP and DEPA, and is ready to sign high-standard free trade agreements with more countries. China looks forward to closely integrating the development of the Hainan Free Trade Port and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and China-ASEAN cooperation, and supports Hong Kong and Macao in engaging in more extensive and closer exchanges and cooperation with ASEAN countries.

Comment by Curation Nation 策展國 on March 1, 2024 at 8:40am

中國將繼續堅定推動科技創新合作,激發地區新的發展動能。中國東盟已完成制定《數字經濟合作伙伴關系行動計劃2021-2025》。中方將認真落實,重點加大對本地區數字基礎設施和數字化轉型的投入,深化電子商務等務實合作,積極推動數字治理對話和數字規則協調銜接,加強數字互聯互通。

China will continue to resolutely advance cooperation in science, technology and innovation to stimulate new drivers of development in the region. China and ASEAN have formulated the Action Plan for Implementing the China-ASEAN Partnership on Digital Economy Cooperation (2021-2025). China will earnestly implement this plan of action with a focus on increasing input in digital infrastructure and digital transformation in this region, deepening practical cooperation in e-commerce, actively facilitating dialogue on digital governance and coordination and harmonization of rules in the digital arena, and strengthening digital connectivity.

我們願通過「一帶一路」綠色發展伙伴關係和生物、循環與綠色經濟發展(BCG)新模式,探討開展低碳、循環和綠色經濟合作,共同建設好清潔能源科技合作平台。推進無國界、無障礙、無歧視的科技創新,落實好中國東盟科技創新提升計劃,加快人才培養和技術轉移,為經濟高質量發展提供不竭動力,加快地區轉型發展。

We are ready to, through the Belt and Road partnership on green development and the Bio-Circular-Green Economy (BCG) model, explore cooperation on low-carbon, circular and green economy, and jointly build platforms for cooperation in clean energy science and technology. We will advance barrier- and discrimination-free scientific and technological innovation that transcends borders. We will implement well the China-ASEAN Science, Technology and Innovation Enhancing Program, and speed up talent cultivation and technology transfer, to provide a constant source of strength for high-quality economic growth, and accelerate regional transformation and development.

中國將繼續弘揚亞洲價值觀,加深地區人民友好感情。東盟國家老一代領導人對於亞洲價值觀有過深入總結,強調家庭、集體、共識、道德,中方對此深有同感。中國願與東盟共同弘揚與踐行亞洲價值,超越你輸我贏的零和思維,加深同甘共苦、同舟共濟的兄弟親情。中方將采取更多便利人員往來的舉措,同各方適時探討啟動旅游復蘇計劃,支持東盟旅行走廊建設。我們將在疫後時代大力推進文化、青年、地方、媒體、婦女等領域交流,推動雙方人員相知相親相融。

China will continue to carry forward Asian values and deepen the bonds of friendship among peoples in the region. The older generation of leaders of ASEAN countries insightfully summarized Asian values as cherishing family, community, consensus and morality. China feels the same way. We are ready to work with ASEAN to carry forward and practice Asian values, rise above the zero-sum mentality, and deepen our brotherly bond of sharing weal and woe in the spirit of solidarity and partnership. China will adopt more measures to facilitate the flow of people and discuss the launch of tourism recovery plans with all sides at the proper time. We support the development of an ASEAN travel corridor. In a post-COVID era, we will proactively step up exchanges in culture and between the youth, subnational entities, media and women, to promote mutual understanding, amity and affinity between our peoples.

各位朋友

Friends,

「同一個願景、同一個認可,同一個共同體」,是東盟的格言,也是地區團結自強的精神寫照。在新的時代背景下,中方願同東盟等地區各國一道,秉持和平、自主、發展、包容,堅定踐行開放的區域主義,攜手建設和平、安寧、繁榮、美麗、友好的共同家園,共同譜寫地區合作與亞洲復興的嶄新篇章!

ASEAN』s motto, 「One Vision, One Identity, One Community」, is also a portrayal of the region』s spirit of seeking strength through unity. In the new era, China is ready to work with ASEAN member states and other countries in the region to uphold peace, independence, development and inclusiveness, and resolutely practice open regionalism. Together, we will build a common homeland that enjoys peace, tranquility, prosperity, beautiful environment and friendship, and write a new chapter of regional cooperation and Asian vitalization!

謝謝!
