President Xi Jinping’s speech at BFA echoes oft-repeated mantra

2021 is full of anniversaries. Certainly, the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China tops the list for its leadership in making China the global success story it is today. But also important is the Boao Forum for Asia in south China’s Hainan Province which celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Global movers and shakers consider it a not-to-be-missed networking event. So it’s no surprise that Apple’s Tim Cook and Tesla’s Elon Musk were among many participating global icons.

The thread that ran through President Xi Jinping’s keynote echoed his oft-repeated mantra that we must build a community of shared future for humanity and that we should strengthen our participation in global governance since we’re all involved in the shared challenges and opportunities the world faces.

He called for global cooperation and respect, as opposed to hegemony, which is leadership or dominance, especially by one state or social group over others.
