Abstract: When considering China's role in promoting contemporary world order, we should take seriously the positive aspects of ancient Chinese world system. Relevant studies have shown that the tributary system makes a peaceful world order, and it, in the analytical sense, actually functions as a substitute for the sup-pressive hegemony model in international relations. Some constituent elements of the tributary system are still valuable, for instance, attractiveness of civilization, standards formulating of legitimacy, principle of non-aggression and voluntariness, political order promoted and sustained by economic power.Modern inter-national system, like ancient tributary system, also bears characteristics of hierarchical power, economic and security dependence, however, it does not imply contradiction with principles of sovereign equality.
