  Your Excellency Yang Jiechi, Member of the Political Bureau of the CPC
Central Committee and State Councilor, and Madame Le Aimei,
          Your Excellencies Ambassadors, Members of the Diplomatic Corps,
Representatives of International Organizations and Your Spouses,
          Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends,
          Good evening!
          Let me begin by warmly welcoming all of you to the 2018 New Year Reception
of the Chinese Foreign Ministry. It is a real delight to see so many friends,
both old and new, on this joyful occasion where we will together look back at
the past year and look forward to the new one.
          Over the past year, Your Excellencies have contributed enormously to
China’s growing friendship and cooperation with the rest of the world, while
other Chinese government departments and local authorities have also given us
valuable support for China’s diplomatic activities. On behalf of the Foreign
Ministry, I wish to salute and thank all of you for your good efforts.
          The year 2017 saw a renewed hope for world peace and growth amid volatility
and transformation. There is a growing call for a world of greater security and
stability achieved through cooperation and development.
          The year 2017 also witnessed the 19th National Congress of the Communist
Party of China, which marked a new era in socialism with Chinese
characteristics. At this Congress, a general goal was set for China’s diplomacy
- to foster a new type of international relations and to build a community with
a shared future for mankind; a two-stage blueprint for a modern socialist China
was drawn up; and China’s commitment to working with other countries for a
bright future was fully demonstrated.
          Over the last year, under the strong leadership of the CPC Central
Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, China has made new progress on
the diplomatic front. We have adapted to new development challenges at home and
to an evolving global landscape. With a strong sense of mission, we have served
the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation. In a pioneering spirit, we have
contributed to the world dream of lasting peace and shared prosperity.
          We have forged greater synergy for the Belt and Road Initiative. The first
Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation yielded over 270 outcomes and
facilitated a number of major cooperation projects, creating a strong momentum
of extensive participation from around the world. Today, the Belt and Road has
become the biggest platform for international cooperation and a most welcomed
international public good.
          We have made great efforts to steer globalization in the right direction.
On various occasions from Davos to Geneva, and from Hamburg to Da Nang,
President Xi Jinping presented to the world China’s vision of greater balance in
economic globalization and of a community with a shared future for mankind. He
also elaborated on China’s proposals for an open world economy and for greater
economic integration in the Asia Pacific. Those remarks instilled confidence and
positive energy into the international community.
          We have explored more avenues to advance our mutually beneficial relations
with other countries. New progress has been made in our coordination and
cooperation with other major countries like the United States and Russia and
with the European Union. Our mutual trust and cooperation with our neighbors has
been strengthened, and more substance has been added to our partnerships with
other developing countries. China’s preference for dialogue and partnership over
confrontation and alliance has created greater resonance, which opens up
exciting possibilities for this new approach to state-to-state relations.
          We have initiated a new model for BRICS cooperation. At their Summit in
Xiamen, BRICS leaders decided to forge a closer, broader and more comprehensive
strategic partnership and to further upgrade BRICS cooperation. The new "BRICS
plus" approach adopted at the Summit will turn BRICS into a new platform for
South-South cooperation with global influence.
          Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends,
          One hundred and twenty years ago, in a China that was poor and weak from
domestic turmoil and foreign aggression, some dedicated patriots pushed for a
"Hundred Days’ Reform". They tried but eventually failed to find a way to
national rejuvenation and prosperity. Today, 120 years on, China has not only
found its path of socialism with Chinese characteristics but also achieved a
remarkable transformation - it has stood up, grown rich and is becoming strong.
A sea change has taken place in China, which represents new opportunities for
the peace and development of the world.
          The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening-up
policy and the first year following the 19th CPC National Congress. We will
follow the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese
Characteristics for a New Era, stay committed to peaceful development and make
new progress in major country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics.
          In 2018, we look forward to a world of greater openness and less isolation.
The green shoots in the new round of global growth must be nurtured by all
countries. What China has learnt in its 40 years of reform and opening up is
that prosperity only comes to those who embrace the world with open arms. China
will remain committed to opening up as a fundamental policy to a mutually
beneficial strategy. We will stay actively engaged in reforming and developing
the global governance system to make economic globalization more open, inclusive
and balanced so that its benefits can be shared by all. We will work on the Belt
and Road Initiative by implementing deliverables of the first Forum and starting
preparations for the second one. This way, we can break new ground in opening
up. We will host a number of events like the annual conference of the Boao Forum
for Asia, the Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Summit of the
Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, and the China International Import Expo to
add momentum to the trend of openness and development.
          In 2018, we look forward to a world of more cooperation and less friction.
China will expand its global network of partnerships and build a framework for
major country relations featuring overall stability and balanced development.
With regard to our relations with neighbors, we will follow the principles of
amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness. We will broaden cooperation
and narrow differences with them to jointly build a community of shared future
in Asia. We will uphold justice while pursuing shared interests for greater
solidarity and cooperation with other developing countries. We will add new
dimensions to our cooperation mechanisms with Africa, Latin America and the
Caribbean, and Arab countries to keep the mechanisms vibrant in changing
circumstances. Such efforts will enable us to set an example for a new type of
international relations.
          In 2018, we look forward to a world of more trust and less estrangement. To
navigate the complicated international landscape, countries need to have more
mutual trust and less suspicion. Efforts must be made to find political
solutions to long-running hotspots and thorny issues and bring about outcomes
that will benefit all parties. The current momentum of easing tensions on the
Korean Peninsula presents all parties with an opportunity to demonstrate greater
sincerity for dialogue and negotiation and to facilitate more good interactions.
To put it more broadly, as a partner that all sides can count on, China will
continue to uphold the equality of countries, regardless of their size, strength
and wealth, stand for dialogue and consultation as the only approach to disputes
and differences, support political settlement to regional hotspots and act
constructively to that end. It is our sincere hope that dialogue and cooperation
will prevail in our world.
          Given the fact that China is still the world’s largest developing country,
serving development at home has therefore remained the top priority in China’s
diplomatic agenda. We will act upon the new development philosophy, present
Chinese provinces, regions and cities to the world under the theme of "China in
the New Era", and serve the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei
region, the planning and development of the Xiongan New Area and the 2022 Winter
Olympics. We will explore a mechanism for protecting the safety and security of
Chinese nationals abroad to effectively safeguard our legitimate rights and
          Ladies and gentlemen, Friends,
          To celebrate the arrival of spring is a tradition shared by people of many
ethnicities around the world. As we celebrate the forthcoming spring, we want to
express our hope for a bright future of greater happiness and prosperity. In the
new year, we look forward to continued communication and cooperation with you
and to mutual support and coordination with other departments and local
governments. Let us work together to take China’s friendship and cooperation
with other countries to a new level and bring more benefits to the Chinese and
other peoples.
          Now, please join me in a toast:
          To the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation,
          To the peace and development of the world,
          To the friendship between the Chinese and other peoples, and
          To the health and happiness of all the distinguished guests present.
