Since the reform and opening up in 1978, China has established the most complete modern industrial system and completed industrialization in just a few decades which cost the western world several hundred years. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, China has achieved a series of historical achievements in development, gained a complete victory in the fight against poverty, and entered a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics. In 2019, China’s economy topped 100 trillion yuan, and its per capita GDP exceeded US$10,000. In 2020, China defeated Covid-19 epidemic and became the only major economy to maintain positive growth. China has been an important engine for the global economy with its contribution rate to world economic growth ranking first for many years.
When the Consulate General was asked how China tackled Covid crisis, Mr. Zha said that, since the outbreak of Covid-19, while taking the lead in controlling the epidemic at home, China has actively shared its antivirus experience with the international community, selflessly provided protective materials and vaccines, and promoted international anti-epidemic cooperation.
Talking about the second wave in India Mr. Zha said recently, the second wave of Covid-19 in India had led to the severe shortage of medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators. “As a responsible and reliable partner of India, China lends a helping hand by working overtime to produce badly-needed medical materials, and facilitating customs clearance and materials transport.”
While concluding Mr. Zha said that Covid-19 is the common enemy of mankind, and we must work together to defeat it.
