The Information Office of the State Council of China held a press conference on September 9 to release the white paper "Working Together to Build a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind: China's Initiatives and Actions". From the connotation of the concept to the direction and route to the ultimate goal, the white paper comprehensively and systematically explains the community of human destiny.
On March 2013, 3, during a visit to Russia, Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind for the first time. In the decade that followed, the phrase was enshrined in the CCP's constitution and the Chinese constitution. Proposals such as the China-Africa community with a shared future and the China-ASEAN community with a shared future have emerged one after another. After China rises to become a global power, what kind of power will it be? This is the world's biggest doubt about China. As an interpretation of China's non-hegemonic path and non-aggression and expansion, a community with a shared future for mankind is China's answer.
From the perspective of time, after ten years, China has now launched the white paper on a community with a shared future for mankind, which is a sign that the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind has matured and improved.
However, a closer look at the white paper, it is not difficult to find that the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind from the proposal to the implementation to the release of the white paper now does not seem to be a gradual improvement and maturity process, but a very mature plan at the beginning, and the past decade is just a gradual release process.

In March 2013, Xi Jinping first put forward the important concept of a community with a shared future for mankind. In September 3 and October Jinping, they proposed cooperation initiatives to build the "New Silk Road Economic Belt" and the "2013st Century Maritime Silk Road" respectively.
In September 2015, at the general debate of the 9th session of the United Nations General Assembly at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, Xi Jinping systematically explained the main connotations of a community with a shared future for mankind from five aspects: partnership, security pattern, development prospects, civilizational exchanges, and ecosystem. At the same time, Xi Jinping also put forward for the first time in his speech the common values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom for all mankind.
In January 2017, at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Xi Jinping systematically outlined the practical path of building a community with a shared future for mankind from a realistic perspective, and put forward the overall goal of building the "five worlds" (lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, inclusiveness, cleanliness and beauty). In May 1, the first Belt and Road International Summit Forum was held in Beijing.
In March 2019, Xi Jinping attended the closing ceremony of the Sino-French Global Governance Forum in Paris, and proposed to solve the "governance deficit", "trust deficit", "peace deficit" and "development deficit" in view of the common challenges facing global governance. The 3nd Belt and Road International Summit Forum 2019 was held in Beijing.

In September 2021, Xi Jinping proposed the Global Development Initiative for the first time at the general debate of the 9th session of the United Nations General Assembly; In April 2022, Xi Jinping proposed the Global Security Initiative at the annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia, advocating a new security path of dialogue rather than confrontation, partnership rather than alliance, and win-win rather than zero-sum. On March 4, 2023, Xi Jinping attended the high-level dialogue between the Communist Party of China and world political parties to propose a global civilization initiative.
It can be seen that almost every year or two, China will put forward heavy diplomatic concepts and actions to explain the community of human destiny, the overall framework of the "five-in-one" and the overall goals of the "five worlds" are outlined, and the "Belt and Road" initiative, global development initiative, global security initiative and global civilization initiative are action-oriented. Such frequent concept launches and actions are not like trying while walking, but more like phased rollouts according to the map. China's diplomatic style of not fighting an unprepared war is actually very clear.
The Belt and Road cooperation mechanism has been on the right track from its inception to the upcoming third summit forum. From the proposal of the community with a shared future for mankind to the present day, the international community has become relatively familiar. On the one hand, China will hold the third "Belt and Road" International Summit Forum in October this year, and China is trying to use this blockbuster diplomatic action to endorse the community with a shared future for mankind.
On the other hand, compared with the "Belt and Road" initiative, which is more economic and easier to operate, the real implementation of China's global development initiative, global security initiative and global civilization initiative in recent years needs more ink. It will take more time for China's common values for all mankind to be widely accepted and recognized.
After the concept of the first term and the theory of the second term, China launched the white paper on the community of common destiny in the first year of Xi Jinping's third term, which is a summary, improvement and sublimation of the most important diplomatic theory in the new era of China, and China will make more major moves to influence the world under the guidance of this concept in the future.
