Global Times Provides Some Interesting Excerpts from Xi’s Davos/WEF Speech
Jan. 17, 2022 (EIRNS)—Among half a dozen notable excerpts from President Xi Jinping’s special address to the 2022 World Economic Forum Virtual Session, which Global Times made available today, are the following:
“Amidst the raging torrents of a global crisis, countries are not riding separately in some 190 small boats, but are rather all in a giant ship on which our shared destiny hinges. Small boats may not survive a storm, but a giant ship is strong enough to brave a storm.”
A second excerpt might have been directed to Klaus Schwab personally, to show him the stupidity of contrasting poverty alleviation and better living standards, to “saving the planet”:
“We should never grow the economy at the cost of resource depletion and environmental degradation, which is like draining a pond to get fish; nor should we sacrifice growth to protect the environment, which is like climbing a tree to get fish.” (David Attenborough, think about it.)
And regarding the essential fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“China is a country that delivers on its promises. China has already sent over 2 billion doses of vaccines to more than 120 countries and international organizations. Still, China will provide another 1 billion doses to African countries, including 600 million doses as donation, and will also donate 150 million doses to ASEAN countries.”
The President’s complete speech “Forge Ahead with Confidence and Fortitude To Jointly Create a Better Post-COVID World” is now available on the Foreign Ministry website.
