Greater contribution. Xi Jinping made five suggestions.
First, take the road of unity and cooperation. It is necessary to strengthen policy dialogue and communication and coordination, respect each other’s reasonable concerns, resolve problems in cooperation in a timely manner, and jointly stabilize the development direction of the SCO. We must strengthen our self-confidence in our system, never accept the preaching of the “teacher”, firmly support countries in exploring development paths and governance models suitable for their own national conditions, and never allow external forces to interfere in the internal affairs of regional countries under any pretext, so as to advance the future of their own countries. Fate is firmly in his own hands.
We must uphold the concept of people first and life first, promote the spirit of science, carry out in-depth international anti-epidemic cooperation, promote the fair and reasonable distribution of vaccines, and resolutely resist the politicization of virus traceability. So far, China has provided nearly 1.2 billion doses of vaccines and stock solutions to more than 100 countries and international organizations. It will step up to provide 2 billion doses of vaccines to the world throughout the year, deepen cooperation with developing countries in the fight against the epidemic, and make good use of China’s direction of “new crown vaccine implementation.” The 100 million U.S. dollars donated by the “Plan” has made due contributions to mankind’s complete victory over the epidemic.
Second, take the road of sharing safety and security. We must adhere to a common, comprehensive, cooperative, and sustainable security concept, severely crack down on the “three forces” such as the “Eastern Iranian Movement”, deepen cooperation in drug control, border defense, and security for large-scale events, improve the organization’s security cooperation mechanism as soon as possible, and strengthen the competent authorities of various countries to maintain stability Ability to deal with emergencies. All member states should strengthen coordination to promote a smooth transition of the situation in Afghanistan and truly embark on the path of peace, stability and development.

Promote the in-depth integration of the “Belt and Road” initiative with the development strategies of various countries and regional cooperation initiatives such as the Eurasian Economic Union, maintain the stability and smooth flow of the industrial chain and supply chain, and promote economic integration, development linkage, and sharing of results in various countries.
China is willing to continue to share market opportunities and strive to achieve the goal of US$2.3 trillion in accumulated trade volume with countries of this organization in the next five years. China will set up the China-Shanghai Cooperation Organization School of Economics and Trade, launch the second phase of special loans for the joint construction of the “Belt and Road” cooperation, focusing on supporting projects such as modern interconnection, infrastructure construction, and green, low-carbon sustainable development.
Fourth, take the road of mutual learning and mutual learning. It is necessary to advocate exchanges and dialogues between different civilizations, harmonious coexistence, and create more ground-to-earth and heart-to-heart projects in the fields of science and technology, education, culture, health, and poverty alleviation. In the next three years, China will provide 1,000 poverty alleviation training places to Shanghai Cooperation Organization countries, build 10 Luban workshops, and carry out 30 cooperation projects in the fields of health, poverty alleviation, culture and education within the framework of the “Silk Road One Family” action. .

All parties are welcome to participate in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and the Paralympic Winter Games, and jointly present a simple, safe and exciting Olympic Games.
Fifth, take the road of fairness and justice. “For a while, strength lies in strength, and success in the future depends on reason.” To resolve international affairs, we cannot proceed from the so-called “power position” and promote hegemony, hegemony, and bullying. We should follow the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and insist on mutual consultation. Build and share together, practice true multilateralism, and oppose acts that undermine the international order, create confrontation, and divide under the banner of so-called “rules.” It is necessary to abide by the mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation concept and create an inclusive and inclusive development prospect.
Xi Jinping pointed out that he believes that the ever-growing “SCO family” will advance hand in hand with all progressive forces in the world to jointly be a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, and a defender of international order.
In conclusion, Xi Jinping said, let us hold high the banner of “Shanghai Spirit”, keep our original aspirations and move forward, and start a new journey for the development of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization along the right path of building a community with a shared future for mankind!
