At 100, the Chinese Communist Party transformed China, the world – Ambassador

By Ifeanyi Nwoko

Chinese Ambassador-designate to Nigeria Cui Jianchun said that under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) currently led by Xi Jinping, China has been very developed.

Nigeria’s news agency reports that Jianchun was speaking in Abuja on Thursday on the 100th anniversary of the party’s existence.

The envoy said the party not only improved China, but contributed immensely to the development of the world.

Giving an overview of the party’s history, he said that the CCP, which started with just 57 members, now has over 90 million members, making it the largest political party in the world.

He said that although the party was formed in 1921, it took about 28 years of struggle to gain power in 1949, when it began the central development of the nation.

The Ambassador-designate stressed that the party has paved the way in the field of industrial development, poverty reduction, economic growth and development as well as infrastructure development.

“The CCP was created with only 57 members in 1921, at a time when China experienced lasting impoverishment, a long-standing debility.

“After 28 years of revolution and against the local warlords, foreign invaders and the Kuomi government, this led the Chinese people to independence from imperialism and finally established the People’s Republic.

“In terms of infrastructure, China’s high-speed rail lines have covered 37,900 kilometers by the end of 2020, making China a country with the longest tracks for high-speed trains.

“On poverty reduction, Chinese President Xi Jinping said earlier this year that 98.99 million poor rural residents living below the current poverty line have all been lifted out of poverty,” he said. -he declares.

He noted that around 80% of the Chinese population was illiterate in 1949 but that the situation had improved.

“Fast forward to today and the net enrollment rate of children in primary school is 99.95%, while the gross enrollment rate in lower secondary education is over 100%.

“In 2018, there were more than 210,000 compulsory education schools in China, serving nearly 150 million students.

“All of these achievements must be attributed to the stubborn struggles led by the CCP and the Chinese people,” he said.

He said the country has also built the largest social security system in the world, with nearly a billion people covered by the basic pension system, with a life expectancy of 77 years compared to 35 years in 1949.

“Economically, China is now the world’s second-largest economy, with a GDP of around $ 15.42 billion and a GDP per capita above $ 10,000 in 2020,” he said.

He added that China’s development has affected the world as well, as China is a major export center for many countries around the world.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that the Ambassador-designate has yet to submit his letter of credentials to President Muhammadu Buhari.

In her goodwill message, Dr Ifeoma Anyanwutaku, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Information and Culture, highlighted the long-standing bilateral relations between Nigeria and China which she said were flourishing.

She said that over the past 50 years, relations between Nigeria and China have gradually developed, adding that the signing of the Cultural and Educational Cooperation Agreement in March 1990 was important.

“The flourishing relationship was also crowned with high-level reciprocal visits by political office holders and administrative level experts at various times.

“Let me take this opportunity to congratulate the People’s Republic of China as we remember its giant leaps in all fields of human endeavor and note the enormous prosperity, well-being and development of the human capital of its citizens and allies around the world.

“These successes could not have been achieved without the excellence and instrumentality of the Chinese Communist Party.

“This seminar on the new CPC plan and the new China-Nigerian journey certainly provides a platform to take stock and celebrate the lasting relationship of our two countries,” she said.

On behalf of the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, she welcomed the new Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Nigeria, HE Mr. Cui Jianchun. (NOPE)
