The Communiqué of the Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China has stressed out on the (cohesion of the Communist Party, people and government), with the China’s insistence on the “territorial integrity” of mainland China and its dependent regions of (Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan).  And China is determined to push forward the path of peaceful development and common prosperity for mankind.

This is in addition to the statement’s confirmation of China’s achievements, which astonished the world, through China’s development initiatives around the world, especially after Chinese President Comrade “Xi Jinping” launched the “Belt and Road Initiative” in 2013, and China’s assistance to the world during the pandemic (Covid-19). China’s provision of all medical aid to the world to combat the epidemic, and the promotion of the “Healthy Silk Road” in accordance with the principle of a common future for humanity launched by Chinese President Comrade “Xi Jinping”.

The statement of the plenary session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China is a document of great importance for China and the world, in that it coincides with the “seventy-second anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China”, and in the same year as the “anniversary of the celebration of the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party” in its first centenary.

The session conducted an in-depth summary and appraisal of the decisive achievements made by China in (building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way), and confirmed the breakthroughs and great progress made by the country during the period of the (Fourteenth of the Five-Year Plan) in comprehensively deepening reforms and laws on strengthening rule-based governance.

The closing statement session of the plenum has confirmed the words of Comrade (Xi Jinping), in his capacity as the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and his constant affirmation that:

“The Chinese nation will continue to press ahead in breaking through strong winds and strong waves, after working hard and overcoming difficulties since the “18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China”, the country is closer to realizing the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history”

The most important achievements of the Communist Party of China come in the ability of its leaders to achieve rapid economic developments and long-term social stability in the past seventy years, and its ability to (build modern China).

Emphasis on the statement that according to practice, (the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and the system of governance of China), which are two systems with strong vitality and enormous strength, and that these (two systems are capable of supporting the continuous progress of the country), which has a population of about one billion four hundred million people. With ensuring the achievements of the two centenary goals of the (great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation) with a civilization spanning five thousand years.

A careful reading of the statement of the plenary session of the CPC Central Committee reveals the most important observations that the issued statement affirms (the continuity of thought, leadership, and orientations of the ruling party in China). It calls for consolidating and improving the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and pushing forward the “modernization of China’s governance system” and capacity under the guidance of  from (Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory), as they are “Three Important Represents Ideas”, with the “Scientific Development Concept”, that has been developed by the Chinese Comrade President “Xi Jinping’s Thoughts on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era”.

The session comprehensively analyzed the international and domestic opportunities and challenges facing China at present, formulated (the guiding ideology and the main principles to be followed for economic and social development in mainland China), and the achievements of the Party’s recent “Five-Year Plan”, and set the main objectives of development to emphasize the most important achievements of the Communist Party of China and the state under the leadership of Comrade “Xi Jinping”, by (reviewing all the results achieved during his era), such as: the economic development sector, new steps in reform and openness, the most prominent new improvements in social stability, making new progress in building environmental civilization, and raising  People’s standard of living and welfare to new levels, and the stress on the “new upgrades in the efficiency of the China’s national governance”.

Also, according to the statement of the Communist Party, it has pledged to improve systems in all fields, to advance fundamentally modernize China’s system and capacity for governance, and to fully realize it as “New China celebrates its centenary in 2049”.

The session’s closing statement emphasized the need to (deepen reforms comprehensively as a fundamental strategic issue related to the general situation of the party and the state). It is the same as what Comrade “Xi Jinping” has repeatedly, by his emphasis on:  

 “It is necessary to carry out comprehensive research and planning, cooperate in promoting reform, development and stability work, plan first and then act, first gather the accumulated strength and then release it gradually, so that we can gain the initiative to achieve  our business better”

The most prominent task of the full issued communiqué was to emphasize (the continuation of the Communist Party’s path), regardless of the complexity of the international environment, or how difficult and difficult the tasks of reform and local development are, but it is necessary to maintain strategic planning, and insist on (deepening reforms in a comprehensive way), with a well management of the internal affairs.  Only in this way can the leaders of the Party and the Chinese state be able to seize opportunities wisely and deal with challenges.

The statement stressed that (adhering to and improving the institutional system of the party leadership), in order to raise the party’s levels of exercising power in a scientific, democratic and in accordance with the law, as one of the most important tasks and measures that ensure the achievement of the desired goals of the Communist Party of China.

Adhering to and improving the (institutional system of the people being masters of the state, to develop socialist democratic politics), which should be fully in the both sides at the internal and external levels, by raising the “Party’s ability to rule the state and exercise power in accordance with the law”, ensure and improve the Chinese people’s livelihood in urban and rural areas, to meet the people’s growing need to a better life, adhere to the guarantee of the Communist Party of the “People’s Liberation Army” to carry out its mission in the new era to defend the security of mainland China internally and externally. As well as fully affirming adherence to and improvement of the institutional system of “one country, two systems”, and the peaceful reunification of the motherland, while adhering to and improving the independent peaceful foreign policy, advancing the building of the community with a common future for mankind, upholding and improving the supervision system of the Communist Party and the Chinese state, to strengthen the “restriction and supervision of the exercise of power”.

The spirit of the statement kept pace with the spirit of the times, by emphasizing (integrating modern technology and the global innovation network and insisting on scientific and technological innovation by self-reliance). Innovation comes at the top of the party’s new development concept, and occupies an essential place in the general situation of “building up the Modernization”. Which is the first driving force to the social development since the beginning of China’s reform and opening up, China has always adhered to the concept that “technology is the primary productive force in guiding social development”. The “technological progress” that the Communist Party aims at in the final analysis is targeting the (technological innovation).

The statement emphasized the achievements of the Chinese state by emphasizing China’s commitment to self-reliance, for example (China is committed to self-reliance in technological innovation), because this (in line with the historical trend of active integration in the world, openness and mutual benefit).  Hence, China can continue its journey to build a modern socialist force by encouraging innovation, and deepen high-level reform and opening up with the integration of innovation, so as to achieve high-quality economic development and provide a high-quality life for its people.

The statement affirmed the achievements of comrade (Xi Jinping), and his constant emphasis on reform and Chinese openness, which we emphasize during one of his speeches by making a deep presentation on the implementation of reform, as he said:

 “The key to reform is implementation, and the difficulty of reform also lies in implementation, at present, there are more favorable conditions for implementing and consolidating reform, the basic elements of ideology, practice, system and popular support for carrying out reforms have become more solid.There is a need to invest more efforts in implementation, strengthen leadership, develop comprehensive scientific plans, and pay close attention to implementation and focus reform on solving problems.  the operation”

Here, we find that the statement of the plenum stressed that upholding and improving the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and moving forward in (modernizing China’s system and capacity for governance is a very important strategic task for the Party), and stressed that all the goals and tasks set by the session should be fully accomplished under the leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

The statement continues the approach of the (Nineteenth National Congress of the Party), of emphasizing the leadership of the Communist Party of the country, by emphasizing that:

  “Party committees, governments and senior officials at all levels should sincerely enhance their awareness of the system and take the lead in protecting the authority of the system.  He set an example in implementing the system for the whole party and society as a whole”

The statement also emphasized (the principle of national unity of the Chinese people), emphasizing the need for the entire Communist Party of China and the Chinese people of all nationalities to rally closely around the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, with Comrade “Xi Jinping” at the core.

This statement came as an opportunity to emphasize the “CPC’s ideological prejudice against China by US policies towards it”, which China strongly opposes.

The statement emphasized (unifying and planting the seeds of solidarity between the Chinese people and the Chinese Communist Party and not paying attention to attempts to drive a wedge between them).  Considering that the Communist Party always expresses and preserves the interests of the people, and has won their deep trust and sincere support.  This was confirmed by Comrade “Xi Jinping”:

 “Attempts to drive a wedge between the people and the Communist Party are a provocation directed against the entire Chinese people and will fail”

   Based on our understanding of the communiqué of the Sixth Plenary Central Committee session of the Communist Party of China, we conclude that we can understand and analyze the most important points of agreement among all, as a result of the extremely sensitive timing of this meeting, due to the interaction between many variables and the repercussions, resulting from the unprecedented challenges with the Corona Virus pandemic “Covid-19”, that is why the calls of China and the leaders of the Communist Party and its General Secretary, Comrade “Xi Jinping”, came in determination to lead China’s international development initiatives around the world, barrelling with the (China’s refusal to follow the old colonial path to control others).  This is in line with China’s launch of the “Belt and Road initiative” in 2013, as a major platform for the international cooperation with its popular and global humanity benefit.

   Therefore, from my point of view, the Chinese insistence on the opening of the “Belt and Road – The Great Wall of China International Festival of Folk Culture and Arts” for three days, which began on September 15, 2021, in the cities of (Langfang, Qinhuangdao) with the participation of more than 600 international figures from UNESCO representatives, Diplomats and all national folk cultural institutions related to the “Belt and Road”, and this confirms China’s keenness to exchange benefits with everyone around the world through its international initiative of the Belt and Road, with full commitment to the path of peaceful development expressly stipulated in the Chinese Constitution, by following (a new path  for Chinese development). These are the same points that were agreed upon during the meeting of the Sixth Plenary Session of the Communist Party Central Committee, by emphasizing the (China’s role internally and externally in supporting the development path), especially in light of those global challenges after the Corona Virus pandemic, and in light of as well those American pressures to interfere in China’s internal affairs.
