Chen Li


This study is guided by the International Ecosophy of “diversity and harmony, interaction and co-existence” proposed by He Wei and Wei Rong, and draw on the analytical model of transitivity for international ecological discourse to analyze China’s President Xi Jinping’s Remarks at the APEC Informal Economic Leaders’ Retreat. The study finds that: first, in this speech, the action process plays a dominant role in the transitivity process, which explains that China not only plays more roles in the international community, but also attaches importance to and advocates starting from all aspects of action to establish an image of actively participating in international affairs and being responsible in the international community; second, in this speech, most of the speech discourse is beneficial discourse, few neutral discourse and no destructive discourse, which shows that China is committed to establishing a good international social ecological discourse system, so as to promote the benign development of the international social ecosystem.
