China will play a bigger role in promoting fair global governance, said an article in People's Daily (excerpts below).
China has just signed a free-trade pact with Switzerland, yet another indication that China is an active participant and constructive partner in global affairs.
China is actively integrating into the world. From the Asian financial storm to current global financial crisis, China has never shirked its responsibilities.
Some Western pundits do not understand the essence of China's peaceful development path.
China respects the cultural diversity of the world and insists that every nation has the right to pursue their own development path.
But it is a two-way process. China will create more opportunity for the world but it expects more understanding, recognition and support.
