China will never close its door to outside world: white paper


15:54, September 06, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- China will never close its door to the outside world, and will open itself increasingly wider, says the white paper on China's development issued Tuesday by the Information Office of the State Council.

China has learned from its development course that it cannot develop itself with its door closed, says the white paper.

"Taking reform and opening-up as a basic policy, China both carries out domestic reform and opens itself to the outside world, both pursues independent development and takes part in economic globalization and both carries forward the fine traditions of the Chinese nation and draws on all the fine achievements of other civilizations," it says.

The country combines both the domestic market and foreign markets and uses both domestic resources and foreign resources, according to the white paper.

China integrates itself with the rest of the world with an open attitude, expands and deepens the opening-up strategy, and strengthens exchanges and cooperation with other countries, it says.

The country strives to build an open economic system which ensures better linkages with the global economy, mutually beneficial cooperation as well as security and efficiency, it says.

The white paper introduced the path, objective and foreign policy of the peaceful development and elaborated on what China's peaceful development means to the rest of the world.

Stressing China will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development, the white paper says this is "a path of scientific, independent, open, peaceful, cooperative and common development."

"Viewed in the broader, global and historical context, the path of peaceful development may be defined as follows: China should develop itself through upholding world peace and contribute to world peace through its own development," says the white paper.

The country should achieve development with its own efforts and by carrying out reform and innovation. At the same time, it should open itself to the outside and learn from other countries, it says.

China should seek mutual benefit and common development with other countries in keeping with the trend of economic globalization, and it should work together with other countries to build a harmonious world of durable peace and common prosperity, it says.

The white paper reiterated that peaceful development is a strategic choice made by China to realize modernization, make itself strong and prosperous, and make more contribution to the progress of human civilization.

China will unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development, it says.
