China is learning to be taken seriously. It also wants the world to know how it conceives of the outside world.Today, the Chinese Government says in a whitepaper that it is seeking peaceful, open and cooperative development.

The Whitepaper says it is no easy job to quell international worries about China since speculations on the country's energy consumption, environmental decline, currency policy and cheap exports have generated so much uncertainty about a rising and confident giant in northeast Asia.

The Whitepaper says that China is aware of the dual challenge of both traditional and non-traditional threats in the post-cold-war era. The Chinese leadership, it says, wants to join hand with the rest of the world in boosting common prosperity and maintaining world peace.
