With the increasing awareness about the conditions of environment and development, concepts of peace, equity and harmony are being thought to be essential. These can be achieved through proper conservation of resources and equal distribution of benefits among masses.
Through the long process of economic development it is experienced that only the powerful and strong people exploited most of the environmental resources even at the cost of migration of poor people already using these resources.
In the modern model of economic development, maximum stress is being put on natural resources and on the poor and inefficient. This condition has caused many disputes and agitations from time to time. In fact, the model of economic development should be based on the principles of peace, harmony and equity. Such type of development is called as sustainable development. Thus sustainable development incorporates both the social development (based on peace and equity) and economic development.
A conference of Asian Political Parties was inaugurated in Nanning (China) on September 4, 2011. It was an International Conference on the Theme Focus on Economic and Social Development.
Zhen Yongkang, a member of the Central Committee of the Political Bureau of Communist Party of China reportedly told in his keynote address that striking a balance between economic and social development and ensuring that the fruits of development went to all the people was essential for sustainable development. In his opinion economic reforms must take into account the stability of society. In case stability of society is not taken into account during steps of economic reforms, the development achieved is feared to be lost.. In the conference delegates from the governments and political parties across Asia took part.
Mr. Zhou Yongkang noted that Asia occupied an important position in the global political and economic landscape. Hence, it was essential for the region to narrow the gap between the rich and the poor and to establish social equity and justice.
The chairman of the organising committee and Minister of the International Development of the CPCCC (Communist Party of China Central Committee) Wang Jiarui read the speech Xi Jinping, Vice President of China. The speech said that sharing the fruits of development was “not only the common aspiration of the people of Asian Countries, but also a historical responsibility of Asian Political Parties”. The speech stressed that “development must be for the people and by the people and its fruits shared among the people.
The Hindu (Kolkata) in its issue of September 5, 2011 reports – Asian, had become a life Jacket of the global economy, growing at 7 to 10 per cent for sustained periods. Asia can and should, lead the world, but to do so it must inspire. It would have to form partnership with Brazil, South Africa, and also the U.S., and the European Union.
It is reported that the conference was also attended by Ban Ki Moon, the Secretary General of United Nations who said investing in people and social protection programmes were the mainstay of national development. The International Development of the CPCCC had also invited the journalists from different parts of Asia.
