中国以嫦娥3号成功着陆月球来送别蛇年,迎接马年。去年,中国干的不错,经济平稳发展,尤其是在打击贪腐和奢侈浪费方面毫不手软,颇得民心。但污染问题日益严重,高房价问题毫无解决希望。这就是真实的中国,希望与挑战并存。

寄希望新的一年里中国继续以稳健的步伐前进。如果让我选两个词来寄望新年,我会选steady和moderate。也就是汉语的“稳健”和“中庸”。中国文化历来追求“适可而止”,凡事“过犹不及”。过于急于求成和贪得无厌是一切罪恶之源。

Expect a steadier, cleaner new year

 

Wu Guangqiang 

CHINA bid farewell to 2013 and embraced 2014 with its first unmanned soft-landing on the moon. Chang’e-3 lunar probe mission was considered a “complete success” on Dec. 15 after its moon rover, “Jade Rabbit,” and its mission mate lander took photos of each other on the lunar surface. 

The Chinese flag’s appearance on the moon has greatly heartened the people of China, further boosting their confidence in realizing the Chinese Dream: to let every Chinese person live a well-off and civilized life, safely, in a clean environment and with dignity. 

The realization of the Chinese Dream, however, is by no means an easy job; it will require persistent and effective endeavors from the whole society. Seeking steadier and more fruitful progress with a down-to-earth style should replace the hectic pursuit of higher economic growth goals. A good job has been done in this regard during the outgoing year. 

Amid domestic and global anxieties over a possible hard landing of the Chinese economy and its consequent social fallouts, China sailed through rough waters, eventually achieving a smooth transition in such key areas as political leadership handover, crackdowns on corruption and social stability. 

The successful convening in November of the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee marked China’s entry into a new stage of development. The meeting communiqué unveiledChina’s key policies to guide the country’s direction in political, economical and social development. 

The key theme of the historic meeting was reform and the purpose of all the reforms is to let markets play “a decisive role in allocating resources.” 

Data show that China will achieve all its economic goals the government set for 2013. GDP will grow by 7.6 percent and the inflation rates will be within the target range. Exports and imports were stronger than expectations. 

For me, the more remarkable achievements in 2013 came from political and social spheres, as the determinant factor in sustainable economic growth is the successful reform of the superstructure. Encouraging achievements included the firm crackdown on rampant official corruption and extravagance, the open and transparent trial of Bo Xilai, the abolishment of the education-through-labor system, and the easing of the one child policy by allowing more couples to have a second child. 

But bad news never fails to come uninvited. Prices for the breakneck development in the last decades are getting dearer, the worst of which is the severe pollution. Much of China was blanketed by thick smog throughout the entire year, particularly around the end of the year. The tension over the DiaoyuIslands between China and Japan is also posing a constant threat to China’s security and regional stability. 

The whole world as well saw tepid economic performance and an initial geopolitical change in 2013. Developments, such as Snowden’s whistleblowing on the U.S. global spying scandal, Russia’s defusing of U.S. military intervention in Syria and its holding back Ukraine’s swinging to the EU, seemed to augur the advent of a more multipolarized world order. China’s proactive diplomatic efforts and global economic maneuvers will contribute to accelerating the formation of the new world pattern. 

There are reasons for us to look to the new year with much optimism. The recently concluded annual Central Economic Work Conference outlined policies and measures for 2014. With the balance between growth and reform as the key note, China should have more positive drivers than negative drags on robust growth. New motivational factors include surging domestic consumption generated by massive urbanization, rural land reform, health reform and population-related reform. 

Negative factors include the persistent property bubble, the building up of local debts, a cash crunch, inflationary pressures, and deteriorating environmental pollution. 

If asked to choose two words to describe my anticipation for the coming new year, I’d like to pick “steady” and “moderate.” Both at home and abroad, many problems stem from too much eagerness for quick success and insatiable avarice. 

It’s time to redefine a happy, content life with our reason and wisdom instead of impulse and instinct.
