Foreign envoys have hailed the great achievements the Communist Party of China has made over the past century, saying the recently concluded sixth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the CPC will chart a path for the country's future.

They also commended the CPC's governance philosophy and expressed hope to develop more exchanges of governance experience between China and their countries.

Russian Ambassador to China Andrey Denisov said that the plenum systematically reviewed the 100 years of history of the CPC, and also provided solutions to the problems the country is facing both internally and externally.

Denisov highlighted the CPC's people-centered development philosophy, saying he was deeply impressed by the Party's approaches of "putting people first" and "serving the people wholeheartedly" in poverty elimination and in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CPC pays great attention to not only individual development, but also the growth of the whole society, he said.

The key Party meeting, which was held Nov 8 to Nov 11, adopted a landmark resolution on the major achievements and historical experience of the CPC's endeavors in the 100 years of its glorious journey, urging all Party members to stay true to the Party's founding mission to better uphold and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.

Speaking at the sixth plenary session, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said that the review of the major achievements and historical experience of the Party over the past century "will help build a broader consensus and stronger unity in will, and action among all members and rally and lead Chinese people of all ethnic groups in achieving new and great success in building socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era".

Lao Ambassador to China Khamphao Ernthavanh said the resolution adopted by the Party meeting fully demonstrates the CPC's strong commitment to upholding socialism, its adherence to seeking the truth from practice, and its consistent efforts to serve the people.

She praised Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, saying it steers the right course for the cause of the Party and the State in the new era.

Egyptian Ambassador to China Mohamed Elbadri said he believes the resolution is "unprecedented". It reflects the CPC's position on the country's future development path as well as its views about the development of the whole of human society, Elbadri said.

The CPC played a critical role in helping China achieve national independence, stability and prosperity, he said, and it overcame various difficulties and triumphed over setbacks in its 100-year history, and now it is making continued efforts to improve the lives of the Chinese people.

Many countries are looking to China to learn from the CPC's governance experience, Elbadri said, adding that he was impressed by the CPC's strong leadership in eliminating absolute poverty across the country as well as in containing the pandemic, and Egypt wants to learn more about the CPC's governance experience.

Madagascar's Ambassador to China Jean-Louis Robinson said that over the past century, the CPC has led the Chinese people on a glorious journey of making development miracles.

He particularly commended the accomplishments China has made since 2012 under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core, saying he is confident the country will make greater achievements in the next 100 years.
