Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia, the 1.4 billion Chinese people have been united in joint effort to prevent and control the epidemic under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee. The effectiveness and efficiency of the state governance system and government institutions have enabled the people across China to combat the epidemic in coordination, demonstrating China's institutional advantage in gathering strength and resources to address major challenges. The Chinese people have also displayed their unity, tenacity and unyielding spirit to the world.


The virus is merciless, but love and friendship will prevail. Members of Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce from 82 countries have donated money and medical supplies to China, which shows the great strength shared by people connected by the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Through BRI international cooperation, more and more Silk Road related countries and social communities have rallied as a community of shared interests, and as a community of shared responsibility and future.


The final victory belongs to people united with one heart and one mind. The impact of the epidemic is temporary. We firmly believe under the leadership of CPC Central Committee, we will win the war against the novel coronavirus epidemic with concerted national effort and great support from international community.
