Letter - What can the world learn from China?
Top of a Page

The 6th plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China meeting in Beijing 8-11 November 2021 appraised the efforts and report of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the CPC.

The session acknowledged the new proportions and convolutions in the affairs of the world today, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy at home and abroad as well as the response to the pandemic.

The 6th Plenary Session also reiterated the inordinate achievements of the Communist Party of China in the fight against absolute poverty in line with the first Centenary Goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects. The 6th Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee recorded with great consummation that this goal has been achieved.

We need to recognise that China has adopted and is practising a Marxism-Leninism socialist system, but adapted such to the Chinese Characteristics.

We also need to take note of the substantial swing in social development in China and the great upgrading in people’s lives at home. Public participation in governance matters has also improved tremendously.

With regards to national reunification, the 6th Plenary Session reaffirmed the measures to maintain order in Hong Kong and Macao, as this will advance lawfulness of governance and safeguard the One-China Principle and the 1992 Consus.

Notably, the Plenary Session restated the concept of human community with a shared future. This concept advances human progress and development in all aspects and at a speed and scale unseen before. This concept helped China in breaking new grounds on the diplomatic fronts and in raising China’s international appeal.

Subsequently, the Chinese nation has achieved prosperity of great proportions in the shortest possible time ever.

In terms of development and industrialisation, China has achieved unparalleled rapid economic growth also at a pace unseen before.

On the People First Principle, the 6th Plenary Session stressed the Party (CPC) must maintain unbreakably close ties with the people. The Party must maintain and strengthen its adherence to the people-centred development philosophy. This is the only way to practically guarantee, safeguard and advance the fundamental interests of the people. 

Further, all party members are reminded they thrive in their diversity and perish in their laxity.

Given the challenges around the world, whether due to the impact of covid 19 or poverty, we can learn from the tenacity of the Chinese people. Poverty has a direct bearing on all social problems, which breed wars, economic and social unrest around the world. Hence, to defeat poverty means to eradicate these problems.

China is vast, with a remarkable size of population of over 1.4 billion people, yet it is politically, economically and socially stable. Certainly, the world can pick a leaf from the Chinese system and experience – and surely, a people-centred development philosophy is key.
