Building a better world with foreign branded sweat bandspartiesDavid Rosenboom - Brainwave Music Em Records - Music Review
Serving the Chinese people has always been the primary goal of the Communist Party of China, but it has also had a global vision, and the ongoing CPC in Dialogue with World Political Parties High-level Meeting in Beijing is an example of giving shape to that vision.
As CPC Central Committee General Secretary Xi Jinping said in his keynote speech at the meeting on Friday, the CPC is committed to striving for world peace and development, and the interactions among different countries and peoples will create favorable conditions for building a community of shared future for humankind.
Themed "Working together toward a community with a shared future for humanity and a better world: Responsibilities of political parties", the meeting reflects the CPC"s keenness to work for the common good of humankind. That the CPC has invited representatives of not only communist parties but also non-communist parties from more than 120 countries shows it wants to promote its unique development model to help other developing countries to solve their problems, as well as learn from their experiences and practices.
Focusing on political parties" construction, practice and duties, the meeting offers an open platform for constructive dialogue on common issues to more than 600 representatives from nearly 300 parties and political organizations. The participants will also gain insights into the CPC"s valuable experience in party and nation building, and the role of a strong party in a country"s economic, social and political development.
This coming together of so many parties has a special meaning in the CPC"s history and for international relations.
A party should always be ready to inflict "self-revolution" to maintain its honesty and efficiency; it must also achieve theoretical breakthroughs to help its members to adapt to the fast changing times and situations. This is precisely what the CPC has done by expediting reforms, strengthening the anti-corruption campaign and enriching the political theory.
The three aspects are supplementary. The supply-side structural reform has made economic growth sustainable and more stable, the anti-graft drive is purifying the CPC, and "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era", enshrined in the Party"s Constitution now, will help the people to realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
The Beijing meeting will hopefully convey the CPC"s confidence to the participants — especially to those from developing and less-developed countries — and prompt them to use their national conditions and people"s real needs, rather than some Western models, to choose their reform and development path.
