Peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit are trends of the times.
The world today is undergoing profound and complicated changes. Peace and development remain the main themes, and peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit have become irresistible trends of the times. With the collapse of old colonial systems and the end of the bloc confrontation of the Cold War era, no individual state or group of states can dominate world affairs alone. A large number of emerging-markets and developing countries are on the fast track of development, with billions of people speeding toward modernization. As multiple development centers spring up across the world, the balance of international forces is tipping in favor of world peace and development.
At the same time, the world is far from being peaceful, and human society still faces various problems and challenges. With growing trends toward multi-polarity, deepening economic globalization, increasing cultural diversity and an emerging information society, the world today enjoys better conditions than ever before to realize peace and development and develop a new model of international relations characterized by win-win cooperation.
