  China and China-Rwanda Relations Usher in a New Era  

     

  Respected Deputy Vice-Chancellor Amb. Charles Murigande, Dr Faustin Gasheja, acting principal of College of Business and EconomicsDear teachers and students, Good Afternoon!  

  On November 23rd, I was at your College of Education, to address the teachers and students who were about to visit China. On that seeing-off meeting, I told the members of delegation that the 19th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC) just concluded one month ago in Beijing. They would be deeply impressed by China’s inclusive development, vigorous society and innovation inspiration during their upcoming trip. Some of those present said they already read my article “New Era, New Opportunity: the 19th National Congress of CPC and its Meaning for China-Rwandan Relations”, which was published on November 13th by The New Times. I was told many faculties and students are interested in this landmark Congress and are eager to learn more about it, its impact on Chinas development and China-Rwanda Relations.    

     As Chinese Ambassador to Rwanda, its my responsibility to let more Rwandan people know the significance of this Congress to China and Rwanda. Therefore, I accepted the invitation from Deputy Vice-Chancellor Tengera, and come to your University again within one month.   

  Today, Ill share with you my thoughts and observations about the 19th National Congress of the CPC. The topic of my speech is China and China-Rwanda Relations Usher in a New Era.  

     

  Teachers and Students,     

  The key message of the Congress is that socialism with Chinese characteristics enters a new era and is marked by new developments.  

  What does the new era mean?  

  1. New principal contradiction facing the Chinese society   

  After nearly four decades of reform, opening-up and rapid growth, the principal contradiction facing Chinese society has evolved. It used to be the contradiction between the ever-growing material and cultural needs of people and the backwardness of social production. Now, it becomes the contradiction between the unbalanced and inadequate development and the peoples ever-growing needs for a better life. Though the principal contradiction changes, China remains a developing country.  

  Recognizing these changed and unchanged is highly significant. That will determine the overall strategies and policies China will adopt in the future.  

     

  2. New targets for Chinas development  

  By the middle of this century, China will become a great modern socialist country.   

  (1) Now---2020, China will secure a decisive success in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.  

  Poverty will be eradicated from the 1.3 billion population   

  Per capita GDP of Chinese people will reach more than $10,000   

  (2) 2020---2050, a two-stage development plan with 15 years for each step, namely:  

  The first stage (2020---2035): China will realize socialist modernization and become a moderately developed country.   

  GDP estimates at $43.6 trillion    

  Per capita GDP reaches $30,000  

   The second stage (2036---2050), China will develop into a great modern socialist country.  

  prosperous  

  strong  

  democratic  

  culturally advanced  

  harmonious  

  beautiful  

  The new targets demonstrate the Chinese people's strong confidence in the country's future development.  

     

  3. New theories to lead the way  

  The new theoretical guidance of the CPC is Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era. It was established at the 19th Congress. Xi Jinping Thought  

  is a system of scientific and comprehensive theory. Its the political and ideological guarantee for building socialism with Chinese characteristics.  

  answers the fundamental question of how to uphold and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.  

  consists of strategic plans for work in 17 areas, including economy, politics, rule of law, science and technology, culture, education, people's welfare, ecology, national defense, diplomacy, party building, etc.   

     

  4. A new central leadership of the CPC  

  The great cause needs a strong and firm leadership. The 19th Congress elected a new generation of the CPC central leadership with General Secretary Xi Jinping at its core.  

  The newly-elected leadership is strong and vigorous with political integrity and professional competence. Under its strong and firm leadership, the1.3 billion Chinese people are on the way to achieve the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.  

     

  5. New major diplomatic visions of China  

  The Congress lays out China's two major diplomatic visions.   

  (1) Build a new type of international relations   

  mutual respect ------ respect each other's independent right to choose their own social system and development path.    

  fairness and justice ------ all countries are equal regardless of size. Any country could take position on an issue based on its own merits.   

  win-win cooperation ------ "zero-sum game" or "winner takes it all" are outdated and should be abandoned. Make the pie bigger so that everyone gets a larger share.  

  (2) Build a community of shared future for mankind  

  lasting peace  

  universal security   

  common prosperity  

  Open & inclusive  

  Clean & beautiful   

  As China moves closer to the center stage, we will be able to share with the world more of China's wisdom, China's solution and China's experience. China will bring more positive energy into the world and create new development opportunities for other countries.  

     

  Teachers and Students,  

  China and Rwanda are intimate brothers, good friends, and close partners. We are proud of the progress in our bilateral ties, and feel heartened by the prospects of our future relations. Last March, H. E. President Paul Kagame paid a successful visit to China and had a fruitful meeting with President Xi Jinping. The two heads of state reached important consensus in deepening bilateral relations.   

  The 19th National Congress of the CPC will bring new opportunities to China-Rwanda relations.  

  1. New opportunities come from China's inclusive development  

  China is the world's second largest economy and contributes more than 30% to world economic growth. A stronger China will certainly make greater contribution to the world. China welcomes Rwanda aboard the "express train" of China's rapid growth.  

  In the next five years, China will import $10 trillion goods, attract $600 billion foreign direct investment, and invest $750 billion around the world. Chinese tourists will make more than 700 million overseas visits. New opportunities for China-Rwanda cooperation already unfold.  

  China has invited Rwanda to attend China International Import Expo held next year in Shanghai. We expect more Made in Rwanda products on Chinese markets.  

  China will strongly support the poverty reduction and development career in Rwanda.  

  China will promote more investment and productivity collaboration between our two countries, inject new energy into the national building of Rwanda.  

     

  2. New opportunities come from China's pursuit of major country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics   

  China stands for democracy in international relations and uphold international fairness and justice. By doing so, China will create an international environment beneficial to Rwanda and other African countries as well.  

  China never imposes its own will onto other countries.  We respect the right of the Rwandan people to choose your own social system and development path. Chinese people are willing to share our insights and achievements with you.   

  Both China and Rwanda call for new state-to-state relations based on communication and partnership. We can make joint efforts to promote free trade, improve global governance etc.  

     

  3. New opportunities come from Chinas Africa Policy  

  (1) Build a community with a shared future for China and Africa. Chinas Africa policy   

  is guided by the principle of upholding justice and pursuing shared interests.   

  insists in the principle of sincerity, honesty, affinity, and good faith.  

  (2) China will increase assistance to Rwanda and continue to strengthen solidarity and cooperation between our two countries. China will  

  Fully implement the outcomes of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) Johannesburg Summit.  

  Continually implement the consensus reached by our two heads of state.   

  Join hands with Rwanda, the rotating presidency of the AU next year, to contribute more to Africas peace and development.   

     

  Teachers and Students,  

  Lastly, I would like to say a few more words to the young people present today, and through you, to all the Rwandan youth.  

  On the 19th Congress of the CPC, President XI Jinping told Chinese youth that   

  A nation will prosper only when its young people thrive; a country will be full of hope and have a great tomorrow only when its younger generations have ideals, ability, and a strong sense of responsibility.   

  The Chinese Dream is a dream about history, present, and future. It is a dream of our generation, but even more so, a dream of the younger generations. The Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation will be realized ultimately through the endeavors of young people, generation by generation.   

  The CPC should care about young people and set the stage for them to excel.   

  Young people should have firm ideals and convictions, aim high, and have your feet firmly on the ground. You should ride the waves of your day; and in the course of realizing the Chinese Dream, fulfill your youthful dreams, and write a vivid chapter in your tireless endeavors to serve the interests of the people.  

     

  Boys and girls, youre born in an exciting and great era. The Rwanda government attaches great importance to engage, educate and empower the youth. Last week, H.E. Ms. Kagame attended Rwanda Youth Forum Series and encouraged young people to play a positive and leading role in Rwandan national building. Youre the future of Rwanda and China-Rwanda relations. I do wish you become the backbones of Rwanda and good-will ambassadors of China-Rwanda friendship.   

  As the Chinese Ambassador to Rwanda, I will try my best to provide more chances for Rwandan students to study in China, encourage more Rwandan people to learn Chinese language, and establish more people-to-people exchange programs.   

  Thank you all.
