  • history many times and even this rainy
  • autumn day can't disguise the signs of
  • big changes happening in China
  • the 2000 communist party delegates
  • climbing the stairs to the Great Hall of
  • the People exude a newfound
  • self-confidence they believe they have
  • the respect of the people again and now
  • have little to fear from the exigencies
  • of everyday political life in China the
  • 19th National Congress of the Communist
  • Party of China heralds its return to
  • robust health after years of moral
  • decline
  • it had been eaten up by corruption
  • ideological disorientation and internal
  • power struggles until this man took the
  • reins Xi Jinping
  • [Music]
  • in just five years he has turned the
  • party around with a combination of
  • strategic aptitude and an iron fist
  • [Music]
  • we must support the party leadership in
  • everything the party is the leader in
  • all aspects of national life all members
  • must maintain their political integrity
  • we need to strengthen the ability and
  • determination of the party to draw up
  • clans shape policies and promote reforms
  • to ensure that the party always takes
  • the lead and coordinates the efforts of
  • everyone involved gchem pings
  • most important instrument in securing
  • his power is his anti-corruption
  • campaign which he has used to put
  • corrupt party functionaries behind bars
  • including his rivals the list of those
  • who have been supposedly allowed to make
  • confessions voluntarily is growing by
  • the day written confessions are like
  • trophies made of paper intended as a
  • warning to the people deviation from the
  • regime's course will no longer be
  • tolerated
  • what worries the current leadership most
  • is the collapse of the Soviet Union and
  • this made the Chinese Communist Party
  • very uncomfortable people wondered why
  • not a single hero came forward to save
  • what could still be saved when the
  • Russian party went into crisis today's
  • Chinese leaders want to create a hero
  • like that the Chinese have a tradition
  • of collective culture they can be
  • miserable on their own but can easily be
  • proud of their families or the strength
  • of their own country so it's easy to use
  • this feeling of patriotism and
  • nationalism to captivate the masses
  • China has been accumulating problems
  • with society the economy and corruption
  • for decades and without a strong leader
  • the country would be in real trouble
  • that's why Zi Jing ping has so much
  • power but he is very different from Mao
  • and other leaders of the past because he
  • has a lot of respect for the rule
  • of law and he probably learned that from
  • Europe also farts CD releases own uneasy
  • at Xi Jinping strategy could be called a
  • kind of counter-reformation everything
  • is once more trimmed to fit communism
  • with a large dose of patriotism added to
  • the mix the party's propaganda machine
  • is running at full speed not only during
  • the party conference but capitalism
  • remains untouched at the time of Deng
  • Xiaoping you weren't allowed to talk
  • about capitalism but you could simply
  • apply it China's development model is a
  • capitalist model but it has to be
  • accompanied by socialist texts this
  • discrepancy between reality and the way
  • we talk about it has existed for many
  • years let's put it this way the current
  • Chinese leadership wants both mouths
  • dictatorship as well as the advantages
  • of a market economy yo yo it's you dear
  • child so attuned to you saw that idly
  • this new patriotism has a name the
  • Chinese dream and to make this Chinese
  • dream come true Zhi Jing ping has

  • propaganda department can indeed draw on
  • the full range of resources China's
  • economic development over the last three

  • wah I just got back after spending 15
  • years in Australia I didn't even
  • recognize Beijing ever since the Olympic
  • Games Beijing has become a world-class
  • City but all the glitters is not gold
  • China is also feeling the distortions of

  • leadership on the wrong foot
  • it only managed to neutralize the
  • effects of speculation bubbles to some

  • [Music]

  • the so-called new Silk Road offers one
  • solution using Chinese construction
  • companies in labor
  • China will plan finance and build rail

  • dozens of countries westward it's a
  • tempting offer for some countries
  • especially ones with developing

  • infrastructure investments
  • that's right mobilization is failing
  • think about European integration or the
  • fact that common markets don't work the

  • promote cooperation the New Silk Road
  • can do this bring China Europe Asia
  • Africa and Latin America all together
  • with a common free trade agreement and
  • common solutions so the New Silk Road
  • will be welcome everywhere and ot2
  • DeWine China's foreign spending plans
  • are often compared to the US Marshall
  • Plan after the second world war but this
  • is very misleading the New Silk Road is
  • not a reconstruction project everyone
  • can participate but China dictates the

  • creating new traffic routes but also new
  • dependencies with new markets for its
  • own overproduction as a bonus
  • but China does not want to make the

  • the current world order with its

  • tailor-made for China's plans
  • international institutions guarantee
  • China's trade rights and the US Navy and

  • rich
  • and now ji Jinping wants to make it
  • strong the Chinese people will have no
  • objection to that as long as they have
  • something to gain from it but not all
  • Chinese are benefitting equally from the
  • boom China is home to more billionaires
  • than ever before
  • but the average citizen has to work hard
  • to make ends meet everyone in China
  • still seems to be pulling in the same
  • direction but this could change quickly
  • if the gap between rich and poor
  • continues to widen as yet China's
  • success can still be felt by the
  • population the in family is one of many
  • who have benefitted from China's
  • economic growth in recent decades in
  • Europe they'd be called prosperous
  • middle class they have an apartment in
  • the center of Beijing a car and they
  • take vacations both spouses have good
  • jobs and their daughter zsa zsa has a
  • sheltered childhood five years ago we
  • didn't have this house but thanks to our
  • savings and the fact that our former
  • apartment went up in value we could
  • afford this larger apartment in a very
  • beautiful area we are very satisfied
  • with our living environment which is
  • also a good place to raise our child and
  • because we now own more we can improve
  • our living conditions and the lives of
  • our children the fact that you can
  • improve your lifestyle through hard work
  • makes me very happy and satisfied
  • should I be dull
  • chinese-style capitalism pays well
  • enough for the educated middle classes
  • and politics plays a minor role in
  • everyday life all you hear in nearly
  • every household is the ruling classes
  • are doing a good job and Zhi Jing ping
  • does his job very well that applies even
  • to those households that have benefited
  • less from the economic boom of recent
  • years farther out from the center of
  • Beijing you find people who are doing
  • better than they used to but who still
  • need all their strength to make ends
  • meet working poor also a characteristic
  • of Chinese style capitalism Wong yang
  • lives with his girlfriend
  • mother and stepfather in a few square
  • meters without heating for which they
  • pay about 200 euros per month that money
  • has to be earned and everybody has to
  • pitch in nevertheless Wang still thinks

  • came here iron 2001 about 280 euros per
  • month and life was quite difficult but
  • now things are better maybe in 10 years
  • my life will look quite different in
  • many ways right now I don't earn enough
  • to feed a family and lead a decent life
  • although things have been improving
  • steadily over the past few years I'm
  • still a long way from that goal but I am
  • optimistic stepfather Yu has to make an

  • rise of China
  • every day he crisscross his Beijing on

  • [Music]

  • billion Chinese China has great
  • ambitions that's not only in evidence at
  • party conferences you just have to take
  • a look at the sort of maps that are
  • common here you can see at a glance
  • which place China prefers to occupy in
  • the world the center on this map Europe
  • in the US are on the world's margins
  • decent cotton
  • as China builds up its presence on the
  • world political stage as a host
  • intermediary or investor its foreign
  • policy has also become dynamic quite
  • incredibly dynamic in fact in the
  • interests of the Chinese and also of the
  • Americans and all other people in the
  • world Xi Jinping said that we must shape
  • the future together there is a great
  • deal that can be done and in detail
  • there are three directors that Xi
  • Jinping also mentioned firstly the
  • leadership of the international
  • community secondly the creation of a new
  • international order including the
  • economic political and military order I
  • believe that the military order must
  • also be included and thirdly the
  • leadership of the international
  • community to create common economic
  • political and territorial security etc
  • as well as the management of a fair
  • economic globalization process ITA about
  • waybad those that founds there do you
  • wait when we speak of a superpower it's
  • not only about power but also about a
  • way of thinking and behaving that tends
  • to focus only on one's own interest
  • when interfering in other country's
  • affairs thoughtlessly without allowing
  • them to participate in the process
  • without equality and that's why we hate
  • the idea of superpowers China is
  • probably already an economic superpower
  • but we are not an ideological superpower
  • we don't interfere in the internal
  • affairs of other countries we value
  • diversity in the rule of law we have a
  • different ideology unlike the American
  • Christian mentality which is always
  • seeking to convert everyone else
  • nevertheless China is upgrading its
  • Armed Forces rapidly Zhi Jing ping says
  • the military is his responsibility and
  • he intends to take China's to the top in
  • pursuit of this goal Beijing is
  • investing huge sums of money in
  • armaments military training and public
  • relations work China is the world leader
  • on the electronic battlefield the party
  • has transformed the Internet in China
  • into the world's largest intranet a
  • solid electronic wall surrounds the
  • country and sets limits on the
  • electronic freedom of China's seven
  • hundred and fifty million Internet users
  • foreign Internet Giants who refused to
  • accept China's terms and conditions are
  • shut out not only that but social media
  • the very epitome of borderless global
  • communication has been turned into an
  • instrument of surveillance you can't do
  • anything in China without a smartphone
  • much to the delight of the companies
  • that harvest data and sell it on to
  • other businesses and also much to the
  • delight of the state's eyes and ears
  • which gain an ever greater insight into
  • what people think with every click they
  • make the Orwellian surveillance state is
  • being built right here in China in
  • reality the current leadership session
  • is of a red empire rather than the
  • so-called Chinese dream she has switched
  • from the Maoist imperative of revolution
  • to the imperative of capital he has
  • launched the new Silk Road and pushed
  • the Chinese currency into the financial
  • markets to establish it globally he has
  • also promoted the acquisition of a lot
  • of foreign companies and technology and
  • the development of numerous
  • infrastructure projects and now China is
  • building up its Armed Forces with the
  • aim of becoming a naval power
  • I think that could be a risk to the rest
  • of the world where is your dad a chance
  • either way she because her friendly
  • dragon is nonetheless still a dragon and
  • the current global situation isn't
  • facilitating China's pretensions to
  • leadership on the world stage the
  • biggest risk factor lies just behind its
  • border to the east
  • North Korea's game of nuclear poker with
  • the US has also left China on the brink
  • of diplomatic despair lesson number one
  • formulating foreign policy is easy but
  • actually solving conflicts is much more
  • difficult harmony in China alone will
  • evidently not suffice
  • China's unpredictable neighbor may be a
  • formal ally but behind the scenes their
  • relationship is anything but harmonious
  • China is becoming impatient with North
  • Korea's grandstanding or Beijing once is
  • peace and quiet on its borders just how
  • unharmonious the relationship with China
  • can be is particularly noticeable in
  • neighboring countries Beijing is
  • building our artificial islands in the
  • South China Sea to further its
  • territorial claims there
  • Hong Kong which has been a special
  • administrative zone since 1997 is also
  • feeling the pressure the former British
  • Crown Colony was granted special
  • democratic rights until 2047 rights that
  • do not exist on the mainland
  • but the Hong Kong democracy movement the
  • so-called umbrella revolution is slowly
  • running out of steam Beijing is taking
  • an increasingly direct role in Hong
  • Kong's affairs and activists there fear
  • the one country two systems' principle
  • could become one of one country one
  • system sooner rather than later
  • Beijing meanwhile is still dreaming and
  • would like everyone else to share the
  • dream the dream of the Chinese people is
  • closely linked to the dreams of the
  • peoples of the rest of the world it can
  • only be achieved in a peaceful stable
  • international order we must take account
  • of both the domestic and the
  • international situation and continue to
  • pursue a mutually beneficial strategy of
  • openness on her way to work
  • Xiao Jing hua is also dreaming of
  • prosperity but her job as a nanny will
  • never bring that and the gap between
  • relative and real prosperity continues
  • to widen when Chao looks after the
  • children of foreigners she sees what a
  • better life could really be like she
  • wants that for herself too that is her
  • Chinese dream I think our lives will get
  • even better in the next five or ten
  • years I don't have a lot of
  • opportunities but my son's life will get
  • better and better if he knuckles down
  • and that will relieve me of some of my
  • burden
  • he works hard and his life will
  • certainly improve and then mine will be
  • easier to shouting quoi can only dream
  • of a secure job in a company or even as
  • a civil servant Chinese capitalism means
  • employment is always precarious this
  • placement agency gives her the odd
  • short-term work assignment and she is
  • not the only one in China who is in that
  • position
  • oh yeah some drug you know Alejandro
  • heartful I think the national reforms
  • have done a lot of good for my home city
  • since G gene pink came to power the
  • country has been doing very well and his
  • policies are very good for the people
  • for the poor he has introduced a minimum
  • wage and social housing and there are
  • subsidies for people who can't work or
  • who don't earn enough to sustain
  • themselves
  • Eugene ping is a really good guy
  • everybody in China loves him different
  • drummer I'm in Tokyo and haba as long as
  • they also benefit from China's growth
  • into a world power the people will
  • continue to support G Jinping's policies
  • China's annual economic growth is still
  • big enough to be felt in Beijing's less
  • prosperous districts but what if growth
  • stalls one day the Communist Party's
  • second Centennial goal is set for 20 49
  • a hundred years after the founding of
  • the People's Republic of China by then
  • Beijing is seeking to have modernized
  • all sectors of society and achieved the
  • level of prosperity of an emerging
  • economy sounds like one yeah I think
  • we'll be able to move to a bigger house
  • within the next five years and I expect
  • my life to improve a lot in five years
  • time my daughter will be seven she'll be
  • a primary school and we'll probably move
  • to another place closer to her school or
  • maybe we'll still be here and we'll
  • drive her there whatever happens I'm
  • very optimistic about the future then
  • draw it sounds insane drunken know where
  • you're going aha the tremendous public
  • optimism is striking everyone is doing
  • better than their parents did in their
  • day and people are convinced their
  • children will be even better off in the
  • future than they are now what do yer
  • Appiah n-- say when they are asked
  • whether their children's lives will
  • better than their own
  • [Music]
  • hundred year goals the Chinese dream
  • state-led capitalism whatever you want
  • to call it one thing is certain this man
  • knows where he wants to go and has the
  • power to get there so what does the West
  • half the West is also powerful but on
  • the retreat in Asia and the consequences
  • are unforeseeable and what about Europe
  • Europe doesn't have just one strategy it
  • has dozens of them ranging from currying
  • favor to erecting barriers which is not
  • something that is likely to hinder China
  • on its way to becoming a global power

China is on its way to becoming a socialist world power. After a time of revolution and reform, the country is entering a new era.

As President Xi Jinping forges the path forward, a question remains: will the Chinese people continue to support him? At the Chinese Communist Party’s convention in fall of 2017, President Xi Jinping sent a clear message to the world: China is entering a new era. Many believe President Xi Jinping has brought the party back on track and has secured the support of the Chinese people. Speaking to delegates in October, Xi said it was time for the nation to be a global leader that could set an example on economic, political and environmental matters. Part of his plan for economic growth is Made in China 2025, an initiative that draws from Germany’s Industry 4.0 plan and aims to make advancements across many industries, including automotive, aircraft, pharmaceutical, and artificial intelligence.
