Luo said President Xi’s “Four Comprehensives” have added new content to the concepts of development and human rights and provided strength and long-term systematic protection. China has always considered the right to subsistence and the right to development as priorities of human rights because it is impossible to talk about other human rights without them. With the expanding and deepening of human rights studies, we have built our own human rights theory with Chinese characteristics featuring views like “people-oriented and people’s livelihood-oriented”. As a result, we have promoted China’s human rights protection and increased its international presence.
