A hundred years ago, the Communist Party of China (CCP) instilled hope for a better nation and began to lead China on the path of stability and development. Maintaining the same hope and determination, seventy years ago, in the vast Karakoram Mountains, the China-Pakistan Friendship Highway has intimately linked the destinations of China and Pakistan.
The year 2021 will be of great significance for China and Pakistan. In addition to the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan, it also marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. The CPC has achieved significant achievements in these 100 years. Under the leadership of the Party, China took the lead in achieving the integration of the market economy and socialism, which greatly liberated productivity and promoted rapid economic development. China’s experience in poverty reduction is a benchmark for the rest of the world. Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Mr Imran Khan, has also praised China’s poverty reduction policies repeatedly and has repeatedly emphasized the need to learn from China’s poverty reduction experience.
In all governance practices in the country since the 18th CPC National Congress, President Xi Jinping has fully demonstrated the four essential skills of a great leader: confident and determined political will, forward-looking approach, tenacious and fearless posture for change and its strong and inspiring cohesion.
It was also under the dynamic leadership of President Xi Jinping that a number of powerful measures were taken by China during the COVID-19 crisis. Steps also recognized internationally. Facts and statistics prove that China was the only one to respond so quickly to the situation and was able to fight the disease, although it was the first country to be affected by it. This reflects the strength and preparation of the Chinese system.
In recent years, President Xi Jinping has also put forward proposals to promote the development of the common man through international cooperation. Strengthening the new types of international relations, he defended the joint construction of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). BRI has brought benefits to people in participating countries and regions. As President Xi Jinping said at the recent Boao Forum, all interested countries can join the BRI. They are most welcome to participate, cooperate and benefit together. BRI seeks development, defends win-win results for the region and delivers hope to people.
Over the years, the CCP and the Chinese people have been involved in helping countries in need and granting concessional loans to developing countries.
China has achieved remarkable achievements in several fields, such as poverty reduction, economic development and the promotion of global economic prosperity, which has served as an example for Pakistan and other countries in the world.
For the past 100 years, the CCP has focused on its original aspiration and has worked hard to seek the happiness of the Chinese people, to rejuvenate the Chinese nation and to work for greater harmony in the world. He also made notable contributions to the cause of human civilization and progress. We have every reason to believe that, under the leadership of the CCP, with President Xi Jinping at its core, China will continue to be a pillar of world peace and a contributor to global development and prosperity.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan. Keeping the strong relationship in mind, China is expected to rigorously promote practical cooperation with Pakistan in various fields, actively share experiences in poverty reduction, pursue high-quality development of CPEC, focus on supporting industrialization and urbanization in Pakistan and create more industrial partnerships and employment opportunities for Pakistan. China will also vigorously carry out agricultural cooperation to help Pakistan’s agriculture, improve land use and agricultural productivity, thereby increasing farmers’ incomes. China will also continue to cooperate with WHO and other countries in the fight against the pandemic, fulfill its commitment to making vaccines a global public product and provide more aid to Pakistan and other developing countries in the fight against the pandemic. ** *
