Beijing, November 2019
DOC CEO Jean-Christophe Bas was invited to give a keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the Institute for a Community with Shared Future, hosted by the Communication University of China (CUC), in Beijing. The vision of Community with Shared Future has been developed by President Xi in the past few years and is paving the way forward for our world. In this speech, Bas stressed that the creation of the Institute was a timely initiative indeed, with the world finding itself in profound reconfiguration and in need of engaging in a global conversation about common views and what keeps humanity together. The year 2020 will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and will be a unique moment to discuss the role of international cooperation. There Bas signed with Liao Xiangzhong, president of the CUC, a Memorandum of Understanding with an ambitious cooperation agenda.
Bas also took part in the Dialogue on Exchanges and Mutual Learning among Civilizations, held in the Forbidden City in Beijing, China, and organised by the Chinese Association for International Understanding. Bas spoke in a panel discussion titled “Mutual Learning among Civilizations and Reform in the Global Governance System”, with participants from China and across the world.
