CPC ex­pe­ri­ence pro­vides mod­els for po­lit­i­cal par­ties

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - Cpc In Dialogue - By LIU XUAN li­ux­uan@chi­nadaily.com.cn

The Com­mu­nist Party of China’s ex­pe­ri­ence in rul­ing the Party and coun­try are worth learn­ing from, said del­e­gates from African po­lit­i­cal par­ties at the Third China-Africa Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties The­o­ret­i­cal Sem­i­nar.

The sem­i­nar, which be­gan on Wed­nes­day in con­junc­tion with the CPC in Di­a­logue with World Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties High-Level Meet­ing, was at­tended by 60 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of po­lit­i­cal par­ties from some 20 African coun­tries.

Ab­dul­rah­man Omari Ki­nana, sec­re­tary-gen­eral of Chama Cha Mapin­duzi, cur­rently Tan­za­nia’s rul­ing party, spoke highly of the eco­nomic and social achieve­ments China has made in the past years and ex­pressed will­ing­ness to co­op­er­ate with China and other coun­tries to build a com­mu­nity with a shared fu­ture.

Ki­nana said African coun­tries have adopted sim­i­lar guid­ing prin­ci­ples and agen­das to work for, rely on and share de­vel­op­ment achieve­ments with peo­ple, as the CPC has done with re­duc­ing poverty. African po­lit­i­cal par­ties have also pro­posed and for­mu­lated plans on de­vel­op­ment and poverty re­duc­tion.

“It’s a huge chal­lenge to im­prove the qual­ity of life of our peo­ple, and we have been work­ing re­ally hard on it in the past decade,” he said. “It is our duty to learn from China and the CPC’s ex­pe­ri­ence as well as suc­cess­ful ex­am­ples.”

Ki­nana said poverty re­duc­tion and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment are the pri­or­ity as Africa is the least de­vel­oped con­ti­nent, with over 60 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion liv­ing in poverty. “Un­der the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion, we must co­op­er­ate with China be­cause we are about to go the way China has passed.”

As sec­re­tary-gen­eral, Ki­nana said his party needs to fol­low the CPC’s ex­am­ple on how to main­tain sta­bil­ity as one gen­er­a­tion passes the torch to the next and how to main­tain po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity and keep solv­ing prob­lems that af­fect peo­ple.

“The key to Africa’s pros­per­ity is to real­ize an or­derly suc­ces­sion of our state lead­ers. We ought to pre­pare the young gen­er­a­tion so that they can take over the coun­try from el­der gen­er­a­tions,” he said.

Ki­nana also said Cham Cha Mapin­duzi should learn from the CPC on fight­ing cor­rup­tion, elim­i­nat­ing con­ceit and self-sat­is­fac­tion, and im­prov­ing work­ing ef­fi­ciency.

Bokary Treta, pres­i­dent of the Rassem­ble­ment de Mali party, cre­ated by a for­mer Malian prime min­is­ter in 2001, agreed to fur­ther pro­mote the train­ing pro­gram for party mem­bers.

“The sem­i­nar said that we need to en­sure dis­ci­pline within the party, en­hance the gov­ern­ing ca­pa­bil­ity, and boost com­mu­ni­ca­tions among party mem­bers. We can bor­row China’s
