[外文]Mr chairman,ladies and gentlemen ,
I heartily appreciate Mr Mosi′s hospitality and invitation.
Today, I′m very glad to be here on Havard University‘s speech platform to communicate with all of you face to face.
There is a long distance from China to America,and also a big difference in the economic development level and the cultural background between two countries.
If you want to know a real , developing , changing , hopeful China, you need to know something about what happened past,happening now and will happen in China.
China used to be an ancient country with great civilization.
China has a broad and profound traditional culture of long standing.
As early as in two thousand years ago, Confucianism represented by Confucius ,Taoist represented by Laozi and Zhuangzi , and other schools of thoughts that are playing prominent roles in Chinese ideologies has already appeared, which was known as ‘various schools of thoughts and exponents during the pre-Qin times to the early years of the Han Dynasty′.
From Confucius to Sun Yat-sen,Chinese traditional cultures own a lot of valuable,people-affinitied ,democratic things,
For example, Chinese nation emphasizes kindheartedness ,groups, harmoniousness with individualism,and the whole world as a community.
And especially the patriotic sentiment like /which can be expounded by the Chinese saying ‘Every man alive has a duty to his country.′;the people-first ideology like ‘The people are the foundation of the state′ and ‘The people are more important than the ruler′;way of getting along with people like ‘Don′t do to others what you don′t want others to do to you.′ ; the traditional great virtues′ passing-on from generation to generation, like ‘bear/endure hardships and be capable of hard work′ and ‘manage the household industriously and thriftily′ and ‘show respect to teachers and attach great importance to education ‘.
All these ideology play an important role in maintaining and regulating our families ,nation and society.
China today is great country benefiting from reform and open ,stressing peace,and rising .
China has a population of 1.3 billion. A small problem multiplying 1.3 billion will become a very big one; and no matter how considerable financial capacity or material resources dividing 1.3 billion will result in very low level per capita.
We can only depend on ourselves to solve our own problem/choose our development methods rather than on others.
Since the implement of reform and open policy in 1978, we have found a proper way developing our own society ultimately,
Which refers to that Chinese people construct a chinese-characteristic socialism independently and on our own initiative.
During the past 30 years ,China has created an enormous property ,which enables Chinese people to have adequate food and clothing,live relatively comfortable life,and also make contributions to the development of the world.
Of course ,China is still a developing country,
With an obvious development gap between cities and countryside ,the east area and the west area.
China will achieve the developed level only by the several generations′ perseveringly hard working .
China tomorrow /in the future will be a great country loving peace and full of hope.
China has formulated the ‘three-step stratagem′ aming to achieve modernization.
From now to 2000, China need to achieve overall well-off society.
And by 2000,the 100 anniversary of the foundation of People′s Republic of China, China will achieve the middle-developed level.
We have clearly estimated that we have to overcome so much foreseeable and unpredictable difficulties and meet various kinds of challenges in the progressional way.
Of course Chinese government and Chinese people has great confidence in achieving our ambitions by perseveringly hard work and eliminating various difficulties.
Now human beings are living in an era whose society is changing rapidly.
I appeal that let′s push forward the improvement and development of human being′s civilization by our intelligence and power together,.
Our success will do credit to our forebears and bring benefit to our posterity.
So our children and grandchildren will live in a more peaceful ,stable and prosperous world.
I believe that such a brilliant and glorious day will certainly come.
Thank you !
