Leaders of China’s non-CPC parties have met the press in Bejing. At the annual session of China’s top political advisory body, the CPPCC, they called for closer cooperation with the Communist Party of China. Sun Tianyuan reports.
China’s non-CPC political parties have vowed to further the country’s development through multiparty cooperation.
ZHENG JIANBANG, Chairman, Central Committee, Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang “China has maintained long term social stability and economic growth for more than seven decades. I think that our political system has provided an important contribution. In advancing toward Chinese modernization and the goal of achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, we must work together with the CPC and always stand with it.”
Also addressing the press in Beijing at the first session of the 14th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference was the non-governmental organization, the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce.
GAO YUNLONG, Chairman, All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce “We aim to promote further development of the private sector and bring the business community closer to the CPC, and to contribute to the cause of Chinese modernization.”
More than 60 percent of the two thousand-plus members of China’s top political advisory body are not members of the Communist Party of China. They are expected to submit policy proposals on a range of issues at this year’s session.
