How will the XX National Party Congress, a major event in the political life of the Party and the State, affect the country and the world?
A Pakistani media outlet Pakistan Observer wrote on Saturday that the CCP has played a “constructive” role in promoting dialogue among civilizations around the world with an inclusive Chinese vision, in line with the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind. . .

The chaos of the world and the governance of China – this is the great contrast between the international and national contexts of the congress. In this context, the certainty that should be brought by the congress, adherence to the path of peaceful development and pursuit of reform and opening up will bring more stability to China and the world, Chinese experts said. .
While details of the upcoming congress have yet to be released, there is no doubt that the congress will be the start of a new journey for China’s development and its role in international affairs, analysts said.
China has made outstanding achievements for the world in the past decade, and in the next decade the country will continue to adhere to the principle of peaceful coexistence, to be committed to the concept of a community with a shared future for humanity and to closely link its development with the development of the whole world, Yang Xuedong, professor of political science at Tsinghua University, told the Global Times.
Over the past decade, China has shared its achievements and experience of peaceful development with other countries, especially with a large number of developing countries, Yang said. The observer cited the Belt and Road Initiative and building the China-Africa community as examples, noting that these are the practices of China’s commitment to development and peaceful cooperation.
Considering China’s achievements, the CCP has always kept its commitments to its people and the world, which is why all parts of the world expect a lot from the congress, and why the congress will bring certainty to China and around the world as the international community undergoes profound changes not seen in a century, Yang said.
“We talked about the chaos of the world and the governance of China. This is actually the great contrast between the international and domestic contexts of the 20th CPC National Congress,” said Zhang Shuhua, director of the Institute of Science. policies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
“The upcoming congress will strengthen the stability of Chinese society, and it will also act as a pillar against the backdrop of a chaotic and confusing world, because the Chinese path has always been one of continuity,” Zhang said.
Faced with some Western media’s slander on China and the big political event, Zhang replied that the groundless stigmatization of some Western countries, led by the United States, revealed that they still refused to accept the fact that China is growing so well. “The more anxious and unconfident the West becomes, the more it will assess a gentleman’s heart with its own petty measure,” Zhang said.
But these countries are not representative of the world, and the majority of countries and regions in the world are looking forward to China’s development, as it can bring them lasting help, Zhang said.
