Nepali edition of Xi’s book ready
President’s latest work described as key publication to learn about governance
The Nepali edition of the second volume of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China and the English version of its third volume have been released and promoted in Nepal.
At an event to release the books in Kathmandu, the Nepali capital, on Thursday, Nepali President Bidya Devi Bhandari said that China’s unprecedented success in governance and the economy had become a matter of common interest in today’s world.
A study of President Xi’s works will give readers an insight into his ideological and political views, policies, programs and governance arrangements, and their successful implementation in the past nearly one decade, she said, adding that China’s success in the field of poverty alleviation and political governance also inspires Nepal and other developing nations.
Huang Kunming, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, delivered a video address at the event.
Huang described Xi’s book as an important publication for Chinese and foreign readers to learn about Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
He said that the Thought is a theoretical result of combining the basic principles of Marxism with China’s specific conditions and fine traditions, which provides an action plan for realizing the Chinese people’s aspirations for a better life, a scientific guide for building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects, and Chinese wisdom for building a community with a shared future for mankind.
Huang pledged efforts to thoroughly implement the important consensus reached by the heads of state of both countries, steadily deepen cultural and people-to-people exchanges, advance the traditional friendship and make positive contributions to the China-Nepal strategic partnership of cooperation featuring everlasting friendship for development and prosperity.
Hou Yanqi, the Chinese ambassador to Nepal, and Sundar Nath Bhattarai, officiating chairman of the China Study Center in Nepal, were present at the event co-organized by China’s State Council Information Office, the Office of the President of Nepal, China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration and the Chinese Embassy in Nepal.
The Nepali edition was jointly translated and published by China’s Foreign Languages Press and Nepal’s China Study Center.
