"Uncoordinated policies and unconnected infrastructure have kept us apart. And the prejudices and misunderstandings among different peoples, and different groups, pull us even further away. So, to continue the progress of our civilization and move forward together as a community, we must fix these problems. And the treatment China proposes is to build a community of shared destiny and pursue win-win outcomes to cure both the symptoms and root causes of the disease of our time. The key lies in connectivity. Just as blood vessels bring life to the body, if we want to bring prosperity to every corner of the world, we need connectivity."

"We firmly believe that a good China-U.S. relationship benefits both the Chinese and American people, and the world at large. Cooperation is the only right choice for us. To promote mutual understanding and win-win outcome through exchanges is the road we must travel. The problem in today's China-U.S. relations should not be seen as permanent, or insurmountable ones. The way to fix them is to further develop our relations, expand our cooperation, and resolve problems in a sensible and constructive manner through coordination and consultation. "

Storyline


Connectivity is very important for promoting the ties between China and the United States, said Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai Thursday.

Cui gave a keynote speech on the Belt and Road Initiative, bilateral relationship and the meeting between leaders of the two countries at the Awards Gala Dinner of the 2017 Annual Conference of the Committee of 100 (C100), a membership organization of Chinese Americans, held in Washington D.C.

Connectivity proposed by China offers a way to address both the symptoms and root causes of the problems facing today's world, according to Cui. He said problems, like the income gap, spread of poverty, digital divide, the worsening environment, extremism and challenges to globalization, raise concerns as the world is seeing great changes, with more wealth and booming civilization.

"Uncoordinated policies and unconnected infrastructure have kept us apart. And the prejudices and misunderstandings among different peoples, and different groups, pull us even further away. So, to continue the progress of our civilization and move forward together as a community, we must fix these problems. And the treatment China proposes is to build a community of shared destiny and pursue win-win outcomes to cure both the symptoms and root causes of the disease of our time. The key lies in connectivity. Just as blood vessels bring life to the body, if we want to bring prosperity to every corner of the world, we need connectivity," said Cui.

Cui added the Belt and Road Initiative is more than just building roads and railways, and it is more of policy coordination, trade, capital flow and bonds among peoples. China is ready to work with all parties, including particularly the United States, to translate these grand ideas to a reality.

"We firmly believe that a good China-U.S. relationship benefits both the Chinese and American people, and the world at large. Cooperation is the only right choice for us. To promote mutual understanding and win-win outcome through exchanges is the road we must travel. The problem in today's China-U.S. relations should not be seen as permanent, or insurmountable ones. The way to fix them is to further develop our relations, expand our cooperation, and resolve problems in a sensible and constructive manner through coordination and consultation," Cui said.

Cui was honored a C100 award for his contributions to the China-U.S. relations.

Ed Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee of U.S. Congress, and U.S. Representative Judy Chu, C100 Chairman Frank H. Wu, and others from all walks of life including the media attended the dinner.
