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.

So far, the second volume of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China has been translated and issued in 13 languages, collecting 99 of Xi’s speeches, conversati­ons, instructio­ns and letters from 2014 to 2017.

The third volume collects 92 articles by Xi between Oct 18, 2017 and Jan 13, 2020. The articles are divided into 19 topics and the volume also contains 41 photos of the Chinese leader during the same period.

The third volume records the practices of the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core in uniting and leading the whole Party and Chinese people of all ethnic groups to make new and major progress in various undertakin­gs of the Party and the country since the 19th CPC National Congress.
