The Tao Te Ching has an important influence on people's ideological realm. As a classic of Lao Tzu's thought, Tao Te Ching has a complex content. It covers philosophy, management, politics, theory, military affairs, health preservation and other thoughts, which can have a positive impact on China's development. Laozi’s thought has been extended since the pre-Qin period and has effectively promoted the development of China.

Based on the analysis of the universal value of Laozi's thought in modern society, this paper puts forward the modern social development strategy and enhances China's competitiveness in the international arena.
