The enormous changes taking place in the world have made a profound impact on country-to-country relations that would determine the norms for international relations and adjustments, which are necessary to adapt to changing times.

Economic globalization, multi-polarization and social informatization are playing significant roles in today’s world. The old norms of international relations must be altered.

Economic Globalization

Since the 1990s, economic globalization has accelerated. Foreign trade has become the most active link for global communications and economic development.

The rapid growth of international investment brings capital internationalization. International financial transactions are more vital for production and commodities exchange. Service trade is more crucial than ever before, along with international economic cooperation.

In recent years, under the catalysis of modern information technology, the flow of production, such as capital, labor and technology, has been widely developed in a global context.

The level of regional and bilateral cooperation continues to improve.  National economies are more inter-connected with the world market system.

The emergence of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and regional free trade areas has enhanced country-to-country relations.

People from all over the world are opening their doors to more advanced science and technology and production patterns, exchange needs in allocation of resources, to realize peace and common development through equal exchanges.

Accordingly, Beijing's proposal for cooperation and win-win philosophy is based on the latest grasp trends in world economic development.

Multi-Polar World

Multi-polarization is the main feature of our current world situation. Economic globalization, information technology and capital, population and liberalization of factors of production can deepen the basic political interdependence as well.

The world economy and governance systems have been largely developed under the control of the developed countries after World War II (WWII).  Due to the unjust and irrational factors of the current international economic order, the globalization has being hindered.

The North-South gap is widening, the economic security and sovereignty of developing countries are now threatened by developed countries.

The healthy development of the world economy should not be set up just to benefit wealthy nations but to help poor countries too. A large number of emerging countries collectively are calling for a world powers transformation.

China has hence put forward recommendations, which directly impact regional interests that can make the world a better place to reflect on an international vision of responsible major powers, strategic initiatives and mission responsibility.

Social Information

The rapid development of information technology (IT) is changing people's traditional ways of thinking.

The timeliness of information is breaking through the traditional means of information transmission. Interconnection is changing production, lifestyle, technology transference, and resource allocation patterns of society.

People have a more convenient and wider range of sources to get information. Methods of communication have gotten more smooth and efficient with more channels to express different points of views. People's awareness to safeguard national sovereignty is the responsibility of the host government.

Yet, what new international relations norms do we really need? Stay tuned for the next issue: The Origin of Win-Win Cooperation Concepts.
