|Wang Yi: The Path of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics Is a Path to Development, to Success, to Peace and to Win-win Results|
On the evening of December 16, 2019 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi delivered a speech at the "Sixty-Minute Briefing" Event of the European Policy Center.
Wang Yi said, this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China. In the past several decades, we have completed a journey that took developed countries one hundred years or even centuries to accomplish. We have made it because we have found a path of socialism with Chinese characteristics under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. It is a path to development, to success, to peace and to win-win results. While accelerating our own development, we have also contributed to the common development of our cooperation partners. As President Herman Van Rompuy aptly put it, "Direction is more important than speed." Since the direction is right, why should China change course? Since it serves everyone's interests, why should China be remolded?
