On the Occasion CPC of 100th Anniversary celebrations organized by Karachi Editors Club (KEC) on July 1st, 2021, at Karachi, Pakistan

Thank you very much for inviting me to join in KEC. I am very honored to be a guest of honour of the event of Karachi Editors Club (KEC) celebrating CPC on the 100th anniversary.
On July 1st 2021, Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered an important speech at the 100th anniversary celebrations. I am very impressive that President Xi has stated, “The state is the people and the people are the state”, the Communist Party has deeply changed the direction and process of the development of the Chinese nation since recent modern times, profoundly changed the future and destiny of the Chinese people and Chinese nation, and profoundly changed the trend and pattern of world development.
As we know,my parent’s generation experienced the Chinese People’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, the War of Liberation, they also suffered the hunger and starvation. Only after the reform and opening up did they gradually live a good life.
Comparing with my parent’s generation, I am very fortunate to be able to live in a peaceful age in my 40 years of life. As a generation born in the period of reform and opening up, I am happy to see the huge changes in China: China transform from a highly centralized planned economic system to a vibrant socialist market economic system, the reasonable economic policies help China become the world’s second largest economy and the world’s second largest consumer market; After the restoration of the college entrance examination system in 1977, China’s education popularization level has been greatly improved, and the overall quality of the people has been comprehensive upgraded;the contribution rate of technological progress to economic growth reaches 57.5%; except the higher quality and full employment, China comprehensively establishes a multi-level social security system; the rural development is changing with each passing day, the targeted poverty alleviation policies helped 770 million people get rid of poverty; Today, Chinese average life expectancy exceeds 76.7 years; As of November 2020, China has signed 201 cooperation documents for jointly building the “Belt and Road” with 138 countries and 31 international organizations. These earth-shaking changes that have taken place in Chinese society under the wise leadership of CPC, made indelible contributions to the progress of human civilization.
China and Pakistan are all-weather strategic cooperative partnership; such world-renowned achievements are inseparable from the support and help of the people and government of Pakistan, as well as from the people of the world.
As a Chinese, I am extremely proud of the achievements in China. On this important day, I want to wish China under the leadership of CPC more prosperity and the people’s life happier! I also send this blessing to friends in Pakistan and the people of all countries in the world. I wish everyone a better and better life, and wish our earth home a better and more prosperous.
