Chinese solutions to common global problems, as highlighted in Major Country Diplomacy with Chinese Characteristics, a six-episode documentary made by China Central Television that went on the air on Aug 28, have helped the world to pursue better global governance, promote peace and common development, and build a community of shared destiny.

At the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012, Xi Jinping, CPC Central Committee general secretary, put forward new concepts of global governance, security, development and globalization, which have won China all-round praise, elevated its global status, increased its say in world affairs and widened its influence.

As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China has not only been supporting but also taking part in UN peacekeeping missions. Also, it helped broker the talks to break the deadlock in Iranian nuclear issue and played a leading role in fighting the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Such efforts have helped shape its new outlook on global security: that disputes should be settled through peaceful means.

As the documentary shows, the open, inclusive, reciprocal, balanced and win-win approach China has been promoting will facilitate global economic development. More importantly, China remains committed to maintaining a transparent, fair and liberal trade environment amid the anti-globalization and protectionist trend in some economies.

This approach has also helped China to make greater efforts to prompt the World Trade Organization to abolish subsidies on agricultural exports, the International Monetary Fund to include the yuan into its Special Drawing Rights basket, launch the Belt and Road Initiative and establish the BRICS New Development Bank and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank-as well as to seek the reform of the global financial system.

Such efforts are part of China's commitment to contribute more to global development. An increasing number of Chinese stories and solutions, as well as Chinese wisdom, as the documentary shows, have taken China closer to the center of the world stage and made the rest of the world more attentive to China.
