Hi, hello. My name is Rita Fatiguso and I am the correspondent of the most important Italian financial paper. This is my daily coffee in the morning, the Italian way. And it’s just right way to lift my spirits in the morning, to start a very busy working day. I’m based in Beijing since 2013, April.
I can say that in 5 years the situation has really really changed a lot. And there are more and more opportunities also from a technical side. I don’t speak Chinese. I love China. I know some I try in 15 years working with China in China to understand some of the culture of the difference, the way we approach people here, so this has helped me a lot just to catch the opportunity I have here, to describe what’s going on in China and all the changes in this country. In 5 years many many changed very dramatically just from the first time I came here, so I can say that really I’m very happy on that.
Yes, this is the Soho by Zaha Hadid, and this is an icon now in this area of Beijing. It’s very new. In China they say that everything is new. So now I think that in this new normal era, everyone is really inside in this kind of new project. Everyone has to take his part on this new way.
This is I’m very proud of that. I’m raising the last last question. It does mean a very, very exciting experience professional side of the experience, important to me. After 5 years, here in China, it has been just the right way to have a look on what’s going on in China.
It has been a very important also for me like a journalist, because I had the big opportunities to be very in touch with some leaders and also some delegation during the Congress, and to understand how China works in this very important decisional moment.
That kind of new vision, a new era. It was very very clear from that speech, so I think that he’s the right person to be considered core leader, and is just very important in this moment to have a very stable leadership. As I told you before, because China is a great country and have a lot of big problems; a lot of also big goals. I think that this is the good starting ground for the next 5 years.
Now is the right strategy for China, because there are still many people living in poverty and Secretary General Xi Jinping has trust a lot that there is a lot to do on that. For this reason, there is a New Era of the socialist. We cannot have the same idea of the past, and we have to focus on this balancing. I think the very thing in this Congress; this has been the focus of all the works because it’s been a very very long process. Just thinking about during the provinces and they shared these thoughts, so there is some kind of democracy in that. It’s a very difficult process for China and this has been very important to guarantee a decent life for everyone. It’s a very big country so I think that it’s a very big effort. We need to do this.
I remember just this word in the report. He told that China has also big problems to solve, so we cannot think about something in few, in very short time. So this is the reason why China needs to go step by step but with a very clear idea on what to do. So I think that this is a strategic point, it’s the right thing to do.
