The world today is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. Certain countries, amid the global spread of Covid-19, increasingly resort to unilateralism, protectionism, bullying and political smear. Across the globe, there emerges greater deficit of governance, trust, peace and development, resulting in mounting uncertainties and destabilising factors. Yet it should also be noted that peace and development remain the theme of our time, together with mutual respect and win-win cooperation as an unstoppable trend.
Standing on the right side of history, the Communist Party of China (CPC) is committed not only to rallying the Chinese people and leading them in running our own affairs well, but also to building a community with a shared future for mankind to promote world peace and common development.
The year 2020 will mark a historic moment for China as the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects will be completed and the battle against poverty will be won under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core.
More than 39 million Party members fought tirelessly at the frontline. Among the 40,000 plus medical workers sent from around the country to assist Hubei, 56.10 per cent are Party members. Nearly 400 Party members sacrificed their precious lives in protecting people's health and safety. In the words of political parties and their leaders from many countries, China's response under the leadership of the CPC has demonstrated the Party's profound care for its people and the humanitarian spirit.
Political parties of many countries speak highly of the CPC's efforts to promote international cooperation against Covid-19 and to provide anti-epidemic assistance for the rest of the world while certain countries have been busy scapegoating others and wantonly wielding the stick of sanction.
It is also the prevailing view of world political parties that the CPC strives for both the wellbeing of the Chinese people and that of people around the world.
China's reform and opening up, which has changed China's destiny and promoted the development of the region and indeed the world, will continue to deliver benefits to all mankind. Staying committed to an opening-up strategy of win-win cooperation, the CPC actively works for an open world economy. To address unbalanced development which constitutes the biggest imbalance confronting the world today, the CPC initiated and promoted the Belt and Road cooperation on the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, to provide an important platform for all countries to achieve mutual benefits and common development.
Working together with political parties around the world, the CPC will strive for gathering mighty synergy toward building a community with a shared future for mankind, and for creating a better tomorrow for the entire world.
