Helga Zepp-LaRouche on China’s Future
Oct. 16 (EIRNS)People’s Daily on line features Schiller Institute Founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche in its fast-moving four-minute video segment on China, on the eve of the upcoming 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China which convenes on Oct. 18 in Beijing.
The video pointedly features the answers of 60 young Americans "on American streets" what they think of China and its future prospects, and all are impressed and optimistic.
People’s Daily writes it wanted its readers to know "How Americans felt about what China has done in the last five years, and any thoughts they may have about what China will be like in the years to come?", and that "To do this we interviewed Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of an international think tank as well as over 60 Americans we approached on the streets of the United States. We hope you will find the following video as interesting as we did, and that it provides you with a better understanding of China and its future." The video is full of people in motion, and everyone interviewed is clearly impressed and intrigued, with Helga’s comments featured in particular.
The video presents Helga LaRouche as the authority among those interviewed, most of whom are young adults. Helga says that President Xi Jin Ping has a "new concept of governance for the whole world," and that "not only China, but the whole world is luucky to have a leader like Xi Jin Ping. He has developed a dream not only for China, but I think the New Silk road is a dream for all humanity."
Helga identifies "the Belt and Road" of President Xi as China’s most important initiative, which he announced in Kazakhstan in 2013 as "the beginning of a new era of because it establishes the interests of all of humanity first, and after that, the national interest ... I think this is the most important strategic initiative on the planet."
Helga reports that she has been in China several times and seen its progress; the building of more than 20,000 km of fast trains, making China the leader in that field, and China’s transformation of the living standard of its people. The announced intention to connect all its cities through fast train systems will, Helga LaRouche says, "revolutionize the lives of the people living in China."
Helga says she was impressed when she heard President Xi Jing Ping announce that he will use e-commerce to enable farmers in poor areas to sell their produce elsewhere, as a very "creative, and very good" initiative. She concludes, "I am very certain and optimistic that the lives of all people in China will be very much imporoved in the next five years. I think this would put the world on a very steady basis for peace."
