Reviewing China's history of past 10 years, we could see two distinctive characters. First, China has achieved a great development. Its GDP had increased by about six times from 1.12 trillion U.S. dollars in 2001 to 7.2 trillion U.S. dollars in 2011. Such a growth rate has surprised the world.

The great development of China is definitely not an isolated phenomenon. The second character is that as China is rising, it is encountering increasing troubles internationally. In this case, how should we regard and deal with these troubles?

First, it must be seen that these troubles are outcomes of China's development and progress. It is natural that changes bring uneasiness, anxiety and even fear. A country, like an individual, meets troubles when it goes backward, stands still or goes forwards. Essentially, the various troubles faced by China are brought by the progress of China and are "growing pains."

In addition, it must also be seen that the troubles faced by China are closely connected with the changing times. The times have changed and peace and development are mainstreams of the current world. However, many people still have not changed their mentalities and are still using the Cold War mentality to regard China's development.

How should China deal with these troubles? While dealing with any issue, the changes of the overall situation must be taken into consideration.
