While addressing the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly on Sept 28, 2015, President Xi Jinping, in his state
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信ment titled “Working together to forge a new partnership of win-win cooperation and create a community of shared future for ma
nkind”, emphasized that, “In today’s world, all countries are interdependent and share a common future.”
Based on this judgment, he urged all countries to build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, and create a commu亚博体育yb贵族宝贝
nity with a shared future for mankind based on five principles: building partnerships in which countries treat each other as eq
uals, engage in mutual consultation and show mutual understanding; creating a security architecture featuring fa
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝irness, justice, joint contribution and shared benefits; promoting open, innovative and inclusive development th
at benefits all; increasing inter-civilization exchanges to promote harmony, inclusiveness and respect for dif
ferences; and building an ecosystem that puts Mother Nature and green development first.亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
Given the nature of the current international community and the inertia of internationa
l politics, characterized by the law of the jungle and zero-sum games, there is reason enough to doubt th
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝e enforceability of Xi’s beautiful ideas. It seems humankind is in a dilemma, the dilemma of choosing between a c
ommunity with a shared future or a community with no future. But there is only one correct choice.
To transform the current international community into a community with a shared future for mankind, countries acr亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
oss the world have to take a variety of measures, including political, economic, security and environmental measures. F
or instance, Xi proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013 with the aim of improving infrastructure connectivity bet
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝ween Asia and Europe and Africa, and thus help build a community with a shared future for mankind.
Equally important, intercultural communication can play an
irreplaceable role in this historical undertaking. On the one hand, it can foster awareness of shar亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
ed economic, security and environmental interests among citizens of different countries and, as a result, the gro
wing awareness among people of shared interests will constantly expand the foundation of a community with a shar
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝ed future for mankind. On the other hand, intercultural communication can accumulatively foster common core values
such as peace, development, harmony in diversity, equity, justice, democracy and freed
om, all of which are fundamental to the survival of a community of shared future.

Firms ramping up innovation efforts in new sectors like high-quality drugs and biologics
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝As China moves forward from being the world’s manufacturing powerhouse t
o an innovation-driven economy focusing on high-quality development, the innovation capa
bilities of Chinese pharmaceutical companies have been growing steadily, reflected by t亚博体育yb贵族宝贝女神会所
he rapid development of domestic biologics and innovative medicine sector, industry people said.
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝According to the Center for Drug Evaluation under China’s Natio
nal Medical Products Administration, it granted approvals for 91 drugs with prio
rity review status in the first half of this year, among which, 65 were domestic drugs while 26 were imported.亚博体育yb贵族宝贝女神会所
In fact, clinical trial and market approval application

The European Council nominates the new European Commission presid
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝ent, who then has to win an absolute majority of votes in the European Parliament to be ele
cted to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU adop
ted a le亚博体育yb贵族宝贝ad-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is des
igned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.
The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. W
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝hile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con
flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans h亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
ave made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.
Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member state亚博体育yb贵族宝贝
s are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU institutions. In particular, the n
omination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Europ亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
ean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten proc
ess, and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eu
ropean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the Euro亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信
pean Free Alliance to support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.
亚博体育yb贵族宝贝品茶微信As for von der Leyen’s policy focus, it is apparent she would intensify European security cooperation and military construc
tion, as well as try to consolidate the union in order to increase the EU’s influence in the international arena.
