美中战略与经济对话开幕式上希拉里的讲话

2010-05-26 09:57新浪博客

  导读:5月24日,第二轮美中战略与经济对话在北京开幕,美国总统奥巴马的特别代表、国务卿希拉里·克林顿出席开幕式并讲话。以下是希拉里讲话全文的中英文对照。

  SECRETARY CLINTON: Good morning. I want to thank State Councilor Dai and Vice-Premier Wang for their very warm hospitality. It is a pleasure for our entire delegation to be here in Beijing. And it is an honor to join my colleague, Secretary Geithner, and the many officials from across our government in representing the United States at this second round of the strategic and economic dialogue.

  国务卿克林顿:早上好。感谢国务委员戴秉国和副总理王岐山非常热情的接待。我国代表团的全体成员十分高兴来到北京。我与我的同事盖特纳(Geithner)部长及我国政府各部门的众多官员一起代表美国出席第二轮美中战略与经济对话,为此感到十分荣幸。

  I first visited China in 1995, and I have been privileged to return since then. Every trip to China offers fresh insights and images of the dynamism of this country and its people, the pace of change, and the possibilities for the future. Back in 1995, trade between our two nations was measured in the tens of billions of dollars. Today it is counted in the hundreds of billions. Few people back then had cell phones, and almost no one had access to the Internet. Today China has the world's largest mobile phone network, and more Internet users than any other country on earth.

  我于1995年初次访问中国,此后又很荣幸地多次前来访问。每次来到中国都使我对这个国家,对中国人民旺盛的活力,对中国的变化之快及中国未来的发展前途产生新的了解和新的印象。早在1995年,我们两国间的贸易额仅有数百亿美元,如今两国贸易额已达数千亿美元。那时,极少有人拥有手机,几乎没有人使用因特网。今天,中国拥有全世界最大的移动电话网络,使用因特网的人数高于全世界任何国家。

  In 1995, both our countries signed on to the Beijing platform for action to advance equality and opportunity for women. And while there is still much to do in both of our countries, I know that Chinese women have made real progress in education, health care, and employment. Hundreds of millions of men, women, and children have been lifted out of poverty. And China has flourished in so many ways. Freer trade and open markets have created jobs in both our countries, and given Chinese consumers access to new goods and to higher standards of living.

  1995年,我们两国政府签署了北京行动纲领,要求采取行动促进妇女的平等权利与机会。虽然我们两国仍有很多工作要做,但我知道中国妇女在教育、卫生保健和就业领域都取得了切实的进步。千百万男女老少摆脱了贫困。中国在很多方面都获得了蓬勃的发展。促进自由贸易和开放市场为我们两国创造了就业岗位,并使中国消费者获得新的商品和更高的生活水平。

  The United States welcomes China's progress and its accomplishments. And by establishing patterns of cooperation, rather than competition between our two countries, we see the opportunity, as we have just heard from Vice-Premier Wang, for win-win solutions, rather than zero-sum rivalries, for we know that few global problems can be solved by the United States or China acting alone. And few can be solved without the United States and China working together.

  美国欢迎中国取得的进步和成就。通过建立两国间的合作模式,而非相互竞争,我们看到了王副总理刚才所说的实现互利共赢的机会,而非互不相容的对抗,因为我们知道,全球性问题无法仅靠美国或者中国得到解决。但没有美国和中国的共同参与,有关问题也不可能得到解决。

  With this in mind, I would like to read a few lines of a letter from President Obama that I will be personally handing to President Hu Jintao. President Obama wrote: “Our relationship with China is guided by the recognition that we live in an inter-connected world. One country's success need not come at the expense of another. Our progress can be shared. Indeed, the United States welcomes China as a strong, prosperous, and successful member of the community of nations.”

  考虑到这种情况,我在此宣读我将亲自向胡锦涛主席转交的奥巴马总统信中的几句话。奥巴马总统写道:“我们生活在一个相互联系的世界上,我们与中国的关系正是以这样一种认识为指导。一个国家的成功不必以另一个国家的利益为代价。我们可以共享进步。美国真诚地欢迎中国成为国际大家庭中一个强大、繁荣和成功的成员。”

  Over the past 16 months, we have worked together to lay the foundation for that positive, cooperative, and comprehensive relationship that President Obama and President Hu have committed our nations to pursuing. We launched the strategic and economic dialogue last year in Washington, as the premier convening mechanism in our relationship. And this year we have assembled an even broader and deeper team, here in China, to address our growing agenda. We have built avenues of cooperation and identified areas of mutual interest.

  奥巴马总统和胡锦涛主席要求两国建立积极、合作和全面的关系,过去16个月来我们共同努力,为双方的关系奠定了基础。去年,我们在华盛顿启动了战略与经济对话,为两国关系建立了主要的对话机制。今年,我们派出代表性更广泛和更深入的团队,前来中国讨论日益增多的议程。我们构建了合作的平台,确定了拥有共同利益的领域。

  Our job, moving forward, is to translate that common interest into common action and, in turn, to translate that action into results that improve the lives of our people, and contribute to global progress. Over the long term, these results are how our relationship will be measured.

  着眼未来,我们的工作是把我们的共同利益转变成共同行动,进而将这种行动转化为改善两国人民生活,促进全球进步的结果。从长远来看,这些结果是衡量我们关系的标准。

  We are conscious that meaningful progress against great global challenges is the work of years, not days. We know that this gathering, in and of itself, is a foundation for ongoing cooperation that has to take place every day at every level of our government. And so, we will blend urgency and persistence in pursuit of shared goals.

  我们认识到,应对全球性的挑战取得有意义的进展需要经过多年的努力,并非指日可待。我们知道,这次会议本身为我们政府各级日常必须进行的持续合作奠定了基础。因此,为了实现共同的目标,我们既需要有紧迫性又需要有持久性。

  We have already begun to see progress on some of the key areas of common concern that we laid out in our first dialogue last year. But there is much work to be done.

  我们已经开始看到,对于去年双方第一轮对话期间确定的共同关心的问题,在主要领域的某些方面取得了进展。但还有许多工作需要做。
