"We're committed to exploring the global significance of Chinese stories, sharing with the world China's experience, wisdom and solutions to push forward the common development of the whole world," Zhou said.

Robert Kuhn, who has studied China for nearly 30 years, said that China's new era is full of changes, opportunities and challenges, and under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, China has set the trajectory, in all vital areas, of the country's domestic development and international engagement for the next 30-plus years, to midcentury.

"When future historians reconstruct the long history of China, they will likely circle our years as an epochal period of transition and transformation," Kuhn said.

Andrew Moody discussed his understanding of the new era's influence in the echoes he hears from other countries.

"China's entering into a new era could be a momentous turning point in world history. … China's new era is a new and confident China striding forward into a world that it itself would play a large part in shaping," Moody said.

Liu Xin shared her work experience and talked about a reporter's mission in the new era.

China's entering into the new era proves the validity and rationality of its development path, showing its confidence in its path, theories, institutions and culture. It consolidates reporters' confidence in telling fantastic Chinese stories based on China's successful practices, she said.

Jiang Qingzhe told the media in an interview after the event that the Vision China format is creative and original. The three speakers showed different angles and perspectives on the same topic, which is a meaningful way to help college students better understand China and the world in the new era.

The Vision China talks will continue focusing on Chinese topics that have global significance and invite distinguished speakers for speeches and interaction with audiences, according to its organizers.
