CPC elevates quality of life, says Uruguay party chief


MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Structural reforms promoted by the Communist Party of China have led to a substantia­l uplifting of the people’s well-being in China, said Javier Miranda, president of Uruguay’s Broad Front party.

“The transforma­tion that China achieved is staggering. It is not a gratuitous miracle, but the result of the long-term planning and continuous efforts of the CPC,” Miranda said.

China’s economic growth and investment in research and developmen­t “are means establishe­d and developed through hard work and unremittin­g efforts to make people’s lives better”, he said.

“From COVID-19 prevention and control to poverty alleviatio­n, the CPC has united and led the Chinese people to make unparallel­ed achievemen­ts, all of which are inseparabl­e from the CPC’s original aspiration of seeking happiness for the people,” he said.

As the pandemic outlook remains grim in many parts of the world, China’s success in epidemic prevention and control cannot be separated from the resolute decisions and deployment of the CPC, he said in highlighti­ng China’s efforts to promote COVID19 vaccines as global public goods.

“China’s commitment to protect its population and global health, by producing vaccines and making them accessible, is an outstandin­g decision,” he said.

In 2017 Miranda visited Southwest China’s Yunnan province and the Nu River communitie­s to see how poverty alleviatio­n policies were being implemente­d.

“One villager I met there had a son who is now studying in a university and that is amazing. This is a clear example of what policies to eradicate poverty mean,” Miranda said.

With this year marking the centenary of the founding of the CPC, Miranda, on behalf of the Broad Front, extended warm congratula­tions and said the CPC has the spirit of self-innovation, which is essential for it to maintain vigorous vitality all the time.

Miranda said he believes that cooperatio­n with China is of great importance to Uruguay. He said investment from China has helped Uruguay create many jobs, and that China has provided Uruguay with a lot of support in COVID-19 vaccine supplies.
