Distinguished guests, dear friends. Good morning!
I'm Li Zice, from LWW Lingding Technology. First of all I would like to thank Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon and President Xi Jinping for supporting the people all the way.
When I arrived in the United States, the first place I went was Los Angeles, where I attended the Sino-US economic, trade and cultural summit held by the U.S. Congress, officials of Ministry of Commerce and local leaders of overseas Chinese. I felt the Chinese and American people's ardent expectation of President Xi's visit, and Sino-US friendship is responsible for the world as both of them are permanent members of the United Nations.
When I visited Hollywood, I stopped at Bruce Lee's name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in memory of this big star who promoted the friendship between the Chinese and local people with confidence and strength. He came to the U.S. with a dream, and Hollywood told us with the Walk of Fame that each person deserves the right to have their own dream. And this dream is the world we want.
Every morning we wake up, our children go to school joyfully, but there are still those struggling for food, for health, and for survival. Today we are commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the United Nations and the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II, yet terrorist attacks still happen from time to time. We need to reflect on it: what kind of world do we want? It's peace and win-win. It's mutual respect and development.
My family and I are grateful for our country. In China, there is care and protection for the aged until their last days, there is high employment, and there is food and education for children and young people. As a matter of fact, with China's increasing strength and peace concept, not only has China seen an unprecdented improvement in the standard of living, but also the world has shared the benefits from the development of China. The iPhone in your hands, the Christmas tree in your house, and probably the high-speed train you take, they all have a common element, Made in China! This is the power of peace and development. It is the choice of our country that makes Chinese entrepreneurs face the new challenges with confidence.
The Dream belongs to the future. Lincoln once said, the best way to predict the future is to create it. We can see from the development of China and other developed countries that it has a huge significance for promoting social development and improving the livelihoods of the people if government and enterprises attach great importance to technological progress. It is a guidance and reference for the creation of the future.
Germany came up with "Industry 4.0", the U.S. introduced "Back to Made in America", and China has proposed the "Made in China 2025 Plan". The future world must be an age of new technology, and all technologies are in bloom and hundreds of thoughts contend. It's also an age of making progress hand in hand.
September 1, 2015, several mainstream media reported that LWW customized a "Beautiful World" handbag created by a seven year old Chinese girl. This event shows in the relatively difficult time of economic development, people's desire for a life with hope. Science and technology progress has brought us hope.
Nowadays, there are ups and downs in the world economy - to identify, meet and accomplish the change and to seize and create opportunities is the right way to go. Entrepreneurs with responsibility and foresight should be active in understanding, following and using the trend to boost sustainable growth of the world economy, and achieve a win-win global development. We need to pay attention to the historical opportunities from two aspects:
One, the broad market opportunity for advanced technology of Europe and America in China and other developing countries. At present Europe and America are facing economic difficulty, and developing an economy only by financial strategies is like quenching a thirst with poison, which is the worst strategy. Europe and America should cooperate with developing countries and regions such as China and Africa in high-tech as early as possible in order to revive in the development of global resource redistribution. It has nothing to do with the system, but scientific rule. Otherwise the ending will be exclusive: to postpone the recovery of the global economy, resulting in a larger financial crisis.
Secondly, the "One Belt And One Road" raised by China is conducive to the development of the global economy, including China's own technological innovation. It attaches a great importance to the Internet and Internet of Things and propels cross-border trade borderless docking, and a new type of international trade relationship would be formed and the development of related industries such as cross-border e-commerce modern logistics would be driven: this is the product of technology development, a typical model of reshaping the value system and creating new economy.
The above technical revolutions and the changes in the consumption habits of the middle class in every country provide the objective base for sustainable consumption. It's a necessary step for each government and enterprise to stimulate consumption through creating new needs, pushing forward consumption progress, promoting sustainable consumption and completing the second revolutionary production layout. LWW has established the FCF model of factory resource integration based on individual customization technology in the world for the first time. While the borderless feature of the Internet will assist in buying from the world, selling to the world and customizing in the world, and beat any closed or regional thoughts. This change will benefit people all over the world, and this kind of dream of China is the dream of the world.
You will fall behind with hesitation, while getting a win-win with initiative, while any country can not make it by itself. It's a common goal to give full play to the economic performance of each country and enterprise. Getting united is inevitable. Combine technology, combine talents, combine funds, combine resources.
We are bound to achieve new cooperation and win-win relationships in a wider world. The world belongs to people with a broad mind. Welcome to China. As an ancient Chinese saying goes, "Ten thousand years is too long, seize every minute", let us open our arms and meet in the beautiful world: enterprises embracing each other, and people loving each other.
