China Today,October 19, 2017 Adjust font size:

The 19th CPC National Congress is crucial to the country as it embarks on the decisive final stage of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, and enters a vital period in the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The congress concerns the fundamental interests of Chinese people, and also exerts profound influence on the future of the entire world in this era of globalization. What, then, are the main focal points of the international community regarding the congress? What significance does China's experience in running the country hold for the world as a whole? To gain insight into these questions, China Today interviewed two ambassadors to China, as well as various visiting foreign officials, party leaders, and organizational heads during the thematic briefing on green development organized by the  by the International Department of the CPC Central Committee. 

Strong Leadership

Many of the people interviewed expressed admiration for the CPC Central Committee with General Secretary Xi Jinping at the core, and Xi's sagacity and ability. They generally attributed China's great development to its strong leadership.

"The leadership of the Communist Party of China is clearly excellent, because in recent times much has happened in China, especially since General Secretary Xi Jinping took office, further opening up and reforming the economy. Such progress is unprecedented as far as I can see. As more people rise from poverty, we're also seeing many initiatives proposed in different areas of the international community on the economic, diplomatic, and political fronts. Relations between China and Africa have also been upgraded. China's relations with my country, Rwanda, have expanded to greater dimensions than ever before to reach a higher stage in political and economic cooperation. So people in Rwanda and many other countries are most impressed and look up to the leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the Communist Party of China," Ambassador of Rwanda to China Charles Kayonga told China Today.

Kamal Ismail Saeed, State Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Sudan, said,"We have learned much about the leadership of the Party and General Secretary Xi Jinping, and know that he has accomplished a lot over the last five years. He was dynamic even before this. Xi has an excellent vision of the future of both China and the world, and is a wise leader. He has successfully led his nation and fixed problems in China and the world. We hope and wish he will continue his wise policies internally and contribute to world peace and security."

Viorel Neaga, director of a business incubator in Northern Moldova, told China Today,"I hope General Secretary Xi Jinping will be selected for a second term. This will make possible the implementation of plans and polices for the future that have already been put forward. The Party is strong and the best for the country, so we wish them best, and good luck. We appreciate what they've already done, and believe that they'll do more good things, for the people, and for all humankind."
