"peaceful Hasaiyo" means "Hello" in Korean. During the autumn season, when reporters interviewed their neighbor South Korea, which was separated by a strip of water, they often heard the greetings of the South Korean people to the Chinese people and felt their expectations for the continuous development of Sino-South Korean relations.
Sino-ROK relations have historical accumulation, realistic foundation, and potential for development. The poem by Xu Yun, an ancient Korean poet, "every picture of the liver and gallbladder, curling reflects the cold moon," describes the traditional friendship between the two peoples, and is also a portrayal of mutual learning and win-win cooperation between the two sides.
Friendly Cooperation: a New expectation of broadening the path
43 times, 100 times.
These are two "symbolic" figures mentioned by Cui Xide, reviewer of the Northeast Asia Bureau of the South Korean Foreign Ministry, during an exchange with the Chinese Foreign Ministry news delegation. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and South Korea in 1992, bilateral trade volume has increased 43 times and personnel exchanges have increased 100 times.
This remarkable achievement is not only a peak of the rapid development of relations between the two countries, but also a starting point for the future. In another three years, China and South Korea will usher in the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. "stand at 30", the two sides look forward to a more mature relationship.
"this year, there have been continuous high-level exchanges between the two countries. The two sides jointly explore new developments in bilateral relations, and new cooperation is good for China and South Korea. " Cui Xide said.
New situation, new path, new space. China and the ROK are among the top three important trading partners, import sources and export targets, and China-ROK cooperation is moving to a new level.
The leaders of China and South Korea have reached a series of important consensus on strengthening third-party market cooperation. Enterprises of the two countries have focused on complementary advantages and achieved a lot of practical results. Deepening pragmatic cooperation in third-party markets will become a new growth point for China-ROK economic and trade relations. Such cooperation will open a broad path to the future.
According to Choi Sid, senior South Korean foreign policy officials are also thinking deeply about discussing the "new model" of South Korea-China cooperation. For example, the aging population in South Korea appeared earlier, the recycling of materials also has advanced experience, and the relevant cooperation has entered the field of vision of the initial discussion of the "new model".
As Dai Lan, head of the press delegation and counselor of the Information Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said: "China and South Korea will foster friendship and strengthen cooperation, which will bring more mutual benefit and win-win results and make new contributions to building an open world economy."
Clean-up Action: "developed cities" enlightening
On October 25, the ROK government formally decided to give up its status as a "developing country." Although this has caused heated discussion and even controversy in South Korea, it also reflects the path and characteristics of entering clubs in developed countries.
Walking in the streets of Korea, often feel "developed city"exquisite", an external performance is "clean". The reform of urban material recycling and waste disposal in South Korea is quite enlightening.
In Seoul, the capital, behind cleaning the streets, there are strict waste classification of "paper", "glass", "plastic" and "metal" and strict restrictions on domestic waste and kitchen waste.
Classification, supervision, fines and other mechanisms are designed to add coordinates to the rules and circles of urban cleanliness. Cui Guidong, head of the natural circulation section in Seoul, said that the price of garbage bags is four times that of ordinary bags, accounting for about 2/3 of the waste disposal fee, and the price will be raised in the future.
In Jizhou, 36 recycling bins, with a total value of about 6.48 billion won (39.25 million yuan), and a large amount of operating expenses each year, give the city such makeup. "Jeju is the most perfect city for waste separation and disposal in South Korea," said Fu Kezhe, chief of the living environment section of Jeju, and will try out a "iContainer natural store" garbage disposal system that uses credit cards.
Walking in Korean cities, it is not easy to find trash cans, and garbage classification is complex and meticulous. However, a clean environment and the comfort it brings can be inconvenient, but it is "well worth it".
Administrative Capital: balanced Development
In the process of development of emerging countries, they will always encounter growth troubles related to balanced development. An important solution for South Korea is to build Sejong City, the "administrative capital".
At present, in addition to the presidential palace, parliament, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a few other institutions in Seoul, 42 central government departments, including the Office of the President and the Ministry of Education, and 15 national policy research institutions, including the Korea Development Research Institute, are all in Sejong City.
Sejong City, which has developed through the "executive dividend", has become South Korea's "model city for leading the balanced development of the country" and a veritable "center" of South Korea, which is only two hours' drive from the major cities in the country.
Sejong City officials said that South Korea's largest planned city leaves green space in the center of the city, plans residential areas around it, and introduces advanced technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, and block chains to build a smart city. In order to make it more humanistic, the government will take the lead in the construction and expansion of cultural facilities.
Sejong City officials said that both China and South Korea face the problem of balanced development, there are also ways to evacuate the city function, the construction of urban sub-centers, exchanges and mutual learning between the two sides will contribute to better development.
China and South Korea have the same culture and interests. In the blending of tradition and modernity, in the convergence of their respective development and destiny, the two countries will certainly expand more common interests, gain more spring and autumn fruits, and create a better tomorrow in the course of learning and learning from each other.
