Jin Canrong, a professor at the School of International Studies at Renmin University of China, said that modernization is the development path that all countries in the world are constantly pursuing, and it is also the inevitable way to achieve a leap in civilization. China must take the road of modernization in line with its own national conditions. According to Wang Wen, Executive Dean of Chongyang Financial Research Institute of Renmin University of China, compared with western modernization, Chinese modernization has unique advantages in population size, balance and coordination of development, ecological protection and external behavior, and has made important contributions to the road of human modernization, development theory and system exploration.
