China's experiences have pepped up the world, especially developing countries
China's achievements in reducing poverty and building a moderately prosperous society in all respects have manifested the outstanding leadership of the Communist Party of China, foreign experts, scholars and overseas Chinese have said.
On July 1, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, announced that China has realized its first centenary goal — building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.
"This means that we have brought about a historic resolution to the problem of absolute poverty in China, and we are now marching in confident strides toward the second centenary goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects," Xi, also the Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, said at a ceremony marking the CPC centenary.
China's confidence-boosting stories have pepped up the world, especially developing countries, in their cause of poverty reduction, and its experience is worth learning from, according to the experts, who also expressed their full confidence that China will undoubtedly realize its second centenary goal.
Hamed Vafaei, head of the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Tehran, said China has realized the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, which has demonstrated the wisdom of the CPC.
The expert said China's extraordinary progress led by the CPC deserves in-depth study by international scholars, and is especially worth learning for some developing countries.
Carla Oliva, an international relations expert at the National University of Rosario in Argentina, said that during the 100 years since its founding, the CPC has attained unparalleled achievements, led the Chinese people to score a victory against poverty and accomplished the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects, which are the result of the whole Party's hard work and tenacity.
Oliva said she believes that under the strong leadership of the CPC, China will for sure accomplish its second centenary goal.
Tursunali Kuziev, a professor at Uzbek University of Journalism and Mass Communications, said the CPC has fulfilled its solemn promises to the Chinese people by building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, casting off absolute poverty in a historic development.
This is an unprecedented great leap in Chinese history, injecting confidence and momentum of development into a world shrouded in the COVID-19 pandemic, said Kuziev, who firmly believes that under the CPC's leadership, China's second centenary goal will definitely be fulfilled.
Zhu Yuke, an official in the Federation of Overseas Chinese and Chinese Youth in Russia, said the world had witnessed the great growth of China from poverty to prosperity under the leadership of the CPC.
Zhu noted that the CPC led the Chinese people to overcome challenges and difficulties last year, from the flooding disaster to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
"Facing the challenges, China led the world in curbing the spread of the epidemic, becoming the first major economy in the world to achieve positive economic growth, and achieved the successful conclusion of its 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20)," Zhu said.
"All the fruitful achievement would not have been achieved without the leadership of the CPC as well as the sacrifice of over 95 million CPC members."
Deng Changwu, vice-president of the Kenya Overseas Chinese Association, said the CPC has led the Chinese people in turning an impoverished country into a strong and prosperous nation over a century's arduous efforts. This is a great, hard-won achievement, Deng said.
"Although China faces various challenges in its development, including some anti-China forces from Western nations, we are firmly confident that the 100-year-old CPC will renew its past glory and lead the Chinese people to overcome all difficulties and challenges and realize the dream of national revival," Deng said.
