According to Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, Communist China will likely serve as a “role model” for many countries as the global community embarks on a “systemic transformation of the world.”
Klaus Schwab, chairman and founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), praised the communist government in Beijing in an interview with the Chinese state-run television network CGTN for being a leading figure in his vision of a Great Reset of capitalism to usher in the “world of tomorrow.”
“I respect China’s achievements, which are tremendous over the last over 40 years, I think it’s a role model for many countries,” the Davos chief said, adding that while he believes countries should be able to choose the system they prefer to live under, the “Chinese model is certainly a very attractive model for quite a number of countries.”
“I look very much forward to having a strong Chinese voice in Davos to explain even better to the world what it means to see the party Congress which laid down the principles of the policy [and] what it really means for global collaboration and for global development,” Schwab added.
He concluded by saying that he has taken “great satisfaction” in seeing the European Union’s thinking become more “unified” in the aftermath of the Chinese virus and the war in Ukraine, and that this could lead to closer ties between Brussels and Beijing.
“I’m very pleased that we speak not only about Chinese-U.S. relations but also again about European-Chinese relations, and I feel despite all the question marks and to a certain extent cautious approach which we see in Europe, I think that very close ties can be established again between China and Europe because there’s such an interwoven economy.”
