3月22日,在對澳大利亞進行正式訪問并舉行第五輪中澳總理年度會晤之際,國務院總理李克強在澳大利亞《澳大利亞人報》發表題為《推動中澳關系向前走》的署名文章。文章如下:

推動中澳關系向前走
中國國務院總理 李克強

當前的世界不確定性增多,方向感缺失。世界經濟復蘇低迷,全球化遭遇挫折,保護主義傾向抬頭,地緣和局部沖突加劇,既有國際秩序和體系遭到質疑。在此背景下,中澳各自何去何從?如何合作應對?這是外界期待獲得的答案,也是我此次訪問澳大利亞雙方要探討的話題。

我聽說,澳大利亞選擇了兩種澳特有的動物——袋鼠和鴯鹋作為自己的國徽圖案,因為它們一般只會向前走,不輕易后退,象征著一個永遠邁步向前、充滿活力的國家。歷史進程中的每一段都會是讓我們向未來前進的動力。我們贊賞澳大利亞這種勇往直前、不斷奮進的民族精神。

回顧中國漫長的歷史,我們經歷過戰火,也沐浴過和平,我們選擇過開放,也固守過封閉。正是閉關鎖國、夜郎自大的錯誤導致了我們近代的慘痛經歷;也正是改革開放、和平發展的道路讓中國在合作共贏中成為全球化的受益者和推動者。實踐告訴我們,全球化、和平、發展、合作是多位一體、不可分割的。自我孤立、閉關自守絕不是伊甸園,既辦不好自己的事情,也無助于世界的和平發展。貿易戰帶不來貿易公平,保護主義不是真正的保護。

歷史不能倒退,潮流不能逆轉。要在前進中克服困難,解決問題,繼續前進。因此,中國堅決致力于維護和平穩定的地區和國際環境,堅定地打開開放的大門,熱忱地向外伸出合作的雙臂。我們愿同各國一道維護經濟全球化,支持自由貿易,改善全球治理體系,推動人類社會的進步。

前進,也是我從中澳兩國國歌中聽到的關鍵詞。我堅信,中澳會以各自的邁步奮進與合作前行,以彼此發展與合作的穩定性熨平世界的不穩定性。

建交45年以來,中澳關系與合作不斷超越國情與制度差異,秉持相互尊重、平等相待,逐漸累積信任,妥處分歧,行穩致遠。中澳務實合作顯著的特征就是互補性強。正因如此,雙方互利合作取得了豐碩的成果,繼續深入對接發展戰略有著廣闊的前景。中澳自貿協定實施以來,紅利不斷釋放,澳奶粉、紅酒、保健品等對華出口同比增長超過50%,成為中國民眾“海淘”的明星產品。雙方可進一步擴大雙向開放,拓展“自貿繁榮”,打造多元持續的經貿合作,開辟產能和三方市場、能礦技術、基礎設施建設、農牧業等合作新領域,惠及兩國民眾福祉,助力世界經濟增長。

中澳也是雙方民眾彼此向往的出境旅游勝地。瑰麗的大堡礁,壯麗的艾爾斯巖石,嬌憨的考拉都是中國游客的“心頭好”,就像澳大利亞友人常常向我夸贊雄偉的萬里長城、可愛的熊貓、美味的中國菜。今年是“中澳旅游年”,希望雙方以此為契機,進一步提升人員往來便利化程度。相信兩國人文、教育和青年等領域的交流合作會讓中澳友好深入人心,代代相傳。

亞太是中國安身立命之所,也是中澳共同所在的家園,維護亞太地區的穩定與秩序,促進地區的發展繁榮,推進區域一體化進程是包括中澳在內的地區國家的共同愿望。當前形勢下,中方愿同澳方順應地區求和平、謀發展、促合作的大勢,以實際行動共同發出積極信號,穩定市場預期,為地區乃至世界傳遞中澳信心,做出中澳貢獻。

未來,希望我們回憶起中澳關系的這一刻時會說,我們化時代挑戰為歷史機遇,以無私的共享和無畏的勇氣,在一個充滿不確定性和缺乏方向感的時代,為中澳關系乃至世界貢獻了向前走的動力。

On March 22, 2017, a signed article titled “We want to work with you for progress and peace” by Premier Li Keqiang, was published in Australian newspaper The Australian. The full text is as follows:

WE WANT TO WORK WITH YOU FOR PROGRESS AND PEACE
LI KEQIANG

We live in a world with growing uncertainties and a sense of disorientation.

Given the less than desirable global economic recovery, the pushback against globalization, rising protectionism, heightened geopolitical rivalry and local conflicts, the existing international order and system is being called into question.

Against such a backdrop, where are China and Australia headed respectively? What can China and Australia do together to cope with such a situation?

People are looking for answers to these questions. They are also topics for discussion during my upcoming visit to Australia.

I was told that for its national emblem, Australia picks a kangaroo and an emu, two native Australian species. Neither of the two likes moving backward but only forward, symbolizing a dynamic country that always moves forward in progress.

As the Australian national anthem puts it, let every stage in history’s page advance Australia fair.

We in China truly admire the Australian people for your perseverance and the courage to forge ahead.

In the long course of history, we Chinese have seen the flames of war and the sunshine of peace; we had periods of great openness and yet also opted to cut ourselves off from the world. While isolation and complacency brought upon us untold sufferings in modern times, reform, opening up and the path of peaceful development have enabled China to benefit from and contribute to globalization through win-win cooperation.

We have seen in practice how the trend of economic globalization has become closely interconnected with, even inseparable from, peace, development and cooperation. Self-isolation will never lead one to the land of happiness. Cutting oneself off could neither ensure success of one’s own endeavor nor peace and development of the world at large. A trade war will not make trade fairer. Protectionism offers no genuine protection.

History cannot be turned back, just as the trend of the times cannot be reversed. We must overcome difficulties and solve problems in the course of moving forward and keep on advancing. In this spirit, China firmly commits to building a peaceful and stable environment regionally and globally, opening the door to the outside world and warmly stretching out our hands for cooperation. We stand ready to work with other countries to support economic globalization and free trade, improve the global governance system and facilitate progress of mankind.

“Advance” is a key word in both the Chinese and Australian national anthems. I am fully confident that China and Australia will continue to move forward in our own way while working with each other, and jointly help to counter global instability with the stability that is created through our steady development and cooperation.

Over the past 45 years of our diplomatic ties, rising above differences in national conditions and systems, China and Australia have gradually built up trust and properly managed disagreements in the spirit of equality and mutual respect. Bilateral relations and cooperation, as a result, have made substantial and steady progress. Defined by strong complementarity, our practical cooperation has delivered fruitful outcomes and promises bright prospect for greater synergy between our development strategies.

Since coming into effect, the China-Australia free trade agreement has yielded continuous dividends, as evidenced by the more than 50 percent year-on-year growth in Australian exports of milk powder, red wine and dietary supplements to China, which are among the most sought-after overseas products for Chinese consumers. Building on that, we may further open up our markets to each other to generate greater FTA-driven prosperity and make our economic cooperation and trade more diverse and sustainable. More cooperation can be explored in new areas such as industrial capacity and third-party markets, energy and mining technologies, infrastructure, agriculture and animal husbandry, which will bring more benefits to our peoples and help boost world economic growth.

Both China and Australia are fascinating lands for each other’s people. Just like Australian friends often speak to me fondly about the majestic Great Wall, cute giant pandas and delicious Chinese cuisine, the breathtaking Great Barrier Reef, magnificent Uluru and adorable koalas are some of the favorites among Chinese tourists. I hope our two sides will take the China-Australia Year of Tourism as an opportunity to further facilitate two-way flows of people. I am confident that with more cultural, educational and youth exchanges, China-Australia friendship will strike deep roots among our peoples and be passed on from generation to generation.

The Asia-Pacific is where China survives and thrives. It is also the common home of China and Australia. It is the shared desire of China, Australia and our neighbors to see the Asia-Pacific enjoy stability and order, development and prosperity and continued regional integration. Under the current circumstances, China and Australia should follow the region’s trend of peace, development and cooperation, join hands to take concrete actions and send positive signals to stabilize market expectations, convey confidence and contribute our share to the region and beyond.

Hopefully, when we look back at this particular moment in China-Australia relations, we can say proudly that we have, with selfless sharing and enormous courage, turned challenges of our time into historic opportunities; and we have, in a disoriented era beset by uncertainties, contributed the impetus needed for China-Australia relations and the world to move forward.
