Public lecture by His Excellency Ambassador Liu Xiaoming

Public lecture by His Excellency Ambassador Liu Xiaoming

刘晓明大使在布斯演讲大厅发表了题为《开放包容,永争一流,共创更加美好的世界》演讲。苏格兰商会主席蒂姆·阿兰及全校200余名师生聆听了大使演讲。 刘大使以圣安德鲁斯大学校训“永争一流”(Ever to Excel)为切入点,以开放包容为主题,分享对中国的发展、对中英关系以及对未来世界的看法。 刘大使指出,今年是中国改革开放40周年。40年来,开放包容始终是中国发展的主旋律,也是中国发展成功的秘诀。回顾过去,开放包容也是中英关系发展的主旋律,同时也是两国合作深入推进的强大动力。主要体现在三个方面:一是开拓思路,创新模式,开创解决历史问题新范例。二是相互尊重,平等相待,开启中英关系新时代。三是携手并进,共谋发展,开辟合作共赢新境界。 刘大使表示当今世界正处于一个大发展大变革大调整的时代,和平与发展仍是时代主题,但世界面临的不稳定性不确定性突出。没有哪个国家能够独自应对当今人类面临的各种挑战。在这样的形势下,中国倡导以开放包容的胸襟推动构建相互尊重、公平正义、合作共赢的新型国际关系,推动构建持久和平、普遍安全、共同繁荣、开放包容、清洁美丽的人类命运共同体。希望各国秉持开放包容理念,加强互利共赢合作,共同开创世界更加美好的未来。 随后,刘大使还回答了现场听众关于南海、朝核、“脸谱”、“一带一路”、中美关系、中英经贸合作等提问,现场互动气氛热烈,笑声和掌声不断。刘大使的演讲和答问获得全场师生长时间热烈掌声。他们纷纷表示,刘大使的演讲高屋建瓴、思想深邃、深入浅出,特别是对“开放包容”的中国理念有了更深入的了解。刘大使有问必答,既坦诚谦和,又妙趣横生,使师生们意犹未尽。 演讲结束后,刘晓明大使参观了圣大医学院及物理学院,并饶有兴致地了解了两院在相关领域的最新发展及对华科研合作情况。在参观中,刘大使与多位中国公派博士生、学者交流畅谈,询问他们的学习、工作情况,并鼓励他们珍惜韶华,发愤图强,早日学成归国。   文章部分改编自中国驻英国大使馆 公众号
