CPC Party Building Forum Held in Beijing

With the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC) approaching, foreign scholars are being invited to China to share their views about the future development of the party.

One of these events, a forum centered on building upon the CPC, was held in Beijing on June 7-8.

Wang Jiarui, head of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, said at the opening ceremony that CPC has enjoyed many benefits from party-to-party exchanges with political parties around the world.

The CPC is looking forward to seeing more new forms of cooperation as well as the broadening of existing channels to further build upon cooperation and dialogues with foreign political parties.

Participating scholars from foreign countries hailed achievements by the CPC, stating that as the ruling party, CPC played an important role in the development of China.

Kerry Brown, an expert on the Asian program at the Royal Institute of International Affairs said that he hadn't expected that China would be able to achieve this level of development this quickly. Having seen the economic achievements of China, he said that the CPC is good at learning from both international society and its own practices, which meant that it successfully adapted to rapidly changing situations.

Experts also indicated that China's experience could be valuable to the whole world.

Professor Zheng Yongnian, director of the East Asian Institute of the National University of Singapore, said that for further development, China needs to learn from both other countries and its own experiences. If China can successfully combine both these elements, China's mode of development will make a great contribution to the world.

Zheng Yongnian added that in the past, the world had provided opportunities for China, but now, as the second largest economy of the world, China will be able to create more opportunities for other countries.

Zheng said that during his recent visit to south China's Guangdong Province, he had noticed that local governments were willing to enact reforms. He said that actually, they have begun innovating their institutions, and that the challenge is to figure out how to combine the regional innovations with the reform plan of the central government.

The forum is being organized by the China Center for Contemporary World Studies and the George Washington University of the United States. Delegates from the United States, Singapore and Europe attended the two-day forum.
