However, the vibrant & dynamic thought of visionary President Xi and its nationalist policy brought out the nation from their repercussions and aligned it on the rail of development. Now, it is to be forecasted that China would easily attain the proposed goal of becoming high volume economy by 2035, but for this, the country will endure a 5% growth in labour productivity volume which can only be attained by mounting urbanization and enhancing technology within the country.

Emerging new markets, growing completion, rising labour costs and slowing economic growth are the key challenges for China’s manufacturing sectors- a key driver of the Chinese economy for the past three decades. To cope up these challenges, China established 15 manufacturing innovation centres in various sectors including information technology, robotics, aerospace, railways, and electric vehicles. It is being forecasted that the innovation centres would be expanded to 40 by 2025. the Chinese government under the leadership of President Jinping is also engaged to explore the new possibilities of free trade-ports in a designated location within the county and Eurasian region to authorities more free-trade zones for the implementation of China’s policies to open up further markets for trade and foreign direct investment in the spare of China’s Belt and Road Initiative- an ongoing massive infrastructure project designed for the smooth flow of capital, goods, services and cultural exchange between Asia and Rest of the world.

The interpretation of the Chinese dream by the outside world is the principal challenge for Chinese President Jinping. The world is interpreting this new narrative into diverse domains stretching from the opportunities to challenges due to minimal knowledge of Chinese history. Contemporary, The West is interpreting it as a principal challenge for its long-standing hegemony in the global world since after the disintegration of Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. Over the years, China’s proposed its diverse peace narratives like ‘China-a peace-loving country’, ‘China- an advocate of peaceful development’ and ‘China- a promoter of Harmonious world’, to defend its position in the internal community. Today, China has made practical examples of all its development model and addressed all the queries related to China’s rapid growth like “either China’s rise will upset the balance of power in the global world?” or “Is China a revisionist power or a status quo country?”. In the recent decade, China got tremendous benefit from the globalization in term of free trade as well as peace and stability because she always believes in absolute gain while strengthening ties with other nation to enhance cooperation and development. The inclusion of 129 states in China’s Belt and Road initiative (BRI) is the protuberant hallmark for its prodigious approach, the inclusion is not limited to the relish economic benefit, but it also aims to enhance the cooperation between the member states for regional and international harmony, peace and stability. Through BRI, Chinese President Jinping, is spreading the message of development, peace and harmony. It is also establishing a beneficial tie among nations by promoting people to people contact through trade and tourism.

Contemporary, with the rise of global power, China is also contributing its due role for international peace and harmony. Due to the intentions of spreading peace in the world, the country did not be a party in any war for the last four decades. It always focuses on peaceful resolution and takes rational decision through its policy of ‘Soft Diplomacy’. The act of dealing with the recent tensions in Hong Kong is evidence of a nation’s idyllic thoughts.
