The problems facing the world are intricate and complex. What are the solutions?

"We should advocate fair competition, like competing with each other for excellence in a racing field, not beating each other on a wrestling arena," President Xi Jinping said in his speech at the World Economic Forum Virtual Event of the Davos Agenda on Monday.

The metaphor was thought-provoking.

Cooperation is the right way to healthy competition. An outdated Cold War and zero-sum game mentality and the misguided approach of antagonism and confrontation will eventually hurt all countries’ interests and undermine everyone's well-being.

Whether it's fighting COVID-19 or restoring the economy, mankind more than ever needs to call on the concept of mutual benefit and win-win cooperation.

To abandon the "wrestling arena" and do well in "track and field." For a better future for mankind, we must make the right choice.
