The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China will influence the world's future, and the CPC has the ability to face challenges and lead China to a bright future, says an article on Russian news portal New Continent. Excerpts:
Chinese people firmly believe that China's comprehensive national power will be No 2 in the world before 2021. By 2049, the 100th anniversary of the People's Republic of China, the country will be a strong power in science and technology, and its military will occupy a dominating position in the world.
The Chinese government phased out the agricultural tax for farmers, which had been levied in China for centuries. China is building the largest social security network in the world and trying its best to let more people enjoy the fruits of development.
China also undertakes its international responsibilities in various fields seriously. China's economic growth has been regarded as the most important power to pull the world economy out of the quagmire of global recessions. And it has increasingly become an indispensable part of the current international order.
Certainly, China is also confronted with a series of serious problems. The US' containment policies make China uncomfortable. Chinese people clearly see the US threat to their country as they pursue a peaceful rise. As a result, the islands and sea disputes have become the main topics of domestic debate among Chinese people before the 18th CPC National Congress.
These issues are likely to cause some changes in the Party's strategy to defend national interests and maintain stability at home.
The CPC will review its experience of running the country and make plans and targets for its development. To realize the targets, China needs a peaceful international environment and a stable domestic situation.
Therefore, it is easier to understand why China is trying its best to maintain regional peace, with considerable restraint, and domestic stability by continually improving people's life and promoting sustainable development.
