China is perceived by an increasing number of foreign people as a global power as a result of the country's wider participation in international affairs with growing confidence and global influence in 2015, according to a Global Times survey of respondents from 20 countries.

Nearly 70 percent of foreign respondents agreed that China is already a global power, 4.7 percentage points higher than in 2014, according to a survey by the Global Times Global Poll Center about China's image and its global influence this year.

The survey also shows some 72 percent of foreign respondents believe China has the economic strength of a global power, far more than those who believe in China's military power and political power - both around 30 percent.

The survey was conducted among 20,811 respondents from 20 countries across six continents. This included Chinese respondents and those from the US, Russia, Japan, the UK, Australia, France, Brazil and South Africa, from October 13 to November 25.

China has seen greater and more substantial achievements in 2015, such as the progress of the "Belt and Road" initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, said Hu Yishan, a senior researcher at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and a former political secretary to the Malaysian prime minister.

This progress has contributed a lot to the growth of the world economy and probably a wider recognition of China as a great power, Hu noted.

However, there is a huge gap between Chinese people and foreigners in seeing China as a global power - only 27.9 percent of Chinese respondents said yes, the survey shows.

There can be little doubt that China has been a world power for a number of years. Its expansion of business ties with the world has further strengthened this position, enabling greater stability and peace. Chinese people may not perceive this, as the domestic market is still emerging and many areas of china remain undeveloped. Now we see increasing involvement in joint military peace-keeping and foreign aid. The acceptance of the Yuan/RMB in the world currency exchange is now inevitable. And all this without war, violence or threat.

So, as a world power it now needs to concentrate on developing its education system to meet global needs as well as its social welfare. Global powers need to set examples.

In AFRICA, China has been perceived as a global power for some time, but only in one way: as an ec ...

Most would've thought you'd focus on your so-called "Party animals" (with a capital "P" if I may recall) than on offering hypocritical advice.

There is no doubt China is a world power.
Why else would its every move be so closely examined by the USA and the rest of the west?
Why else would there be so much negative propaganda drummed up against China by the west?
The west is used to invading and killing people in nations it doesn't like.
China is so powerful the west can only spread lies about China.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
