The Shanghai Cooperation Organization has existed ten years. Over this decade, the SCO has taken remarkable steps to resolve border disputes among member states, combating “three evil forces,” developing the regional economy, and establishing “harmonious” relations. As the SCO enters its second decade, it also faces issues such as strengthening regional stability, consolidating foundations for economic cooperation, and responding to non-traditional security challenges. Under the guidance of the “Shanghai Spirit,” the SCO will seize on new development opportunities, turn challenges into grounds for cooperation, and play a greater role in promoting regional prosperity and stability.
