The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) provides invaluable insight into China’s future path, Moroccan Ambassador to China Aziz Mekouar told Xinhua.

Mekouar described China’s development over the past 10 years as “unprecedented” and said he is inspired by the sheer speed, ingenuity and dedication, with which Chinese people have built modern China under the leadership of the CPC.

He applauded the diverse age, ethnicity and gender of the delegates to the congress, saying the diversity shines a bright light on the entire spectrum of society.

Mekouar said he is deeply touched by China’s great achievements in the past 10 years.

“I have been very fortunate to travel across the vast and beautiful Chinese land, and I have witnessed firsthand the vitality of its people, maturity of its infrastructure and openness of its cities, be they big or small, to the outside world,” said Mekouar.

It is indeed unprecedented for a developing nation to modernize and prosper on such a scale and at such a pace, he said.

The Chinese people have discovered a formula that best suits their country’s characteristics, capabilities and goals. And yet it is one that other countries may wish to learn from and adapt to their realities and conditions, according to Mekouar.

Separately, Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin ul Haque said the ongoing congress will promote the high-quality development of China and bring it one step closer to achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, China has made remarkable accomplishments in all fields of human endeavors, he said.

He was impressed by the transformation of the education, health and social security sectors, as well as China’s role in leading global efforts for the mitigation of climate change and exploring new frontiers in space technology, quantum computing, AI and medicinal research.

“Of all these accomplishments, achieving the first centenary goal of establishing a moderately prosperous society by eradicating absolute poverty is indeed one of the crowning achievements of the last decade,” the ambassador said.

Haque called China’s success in people-centered development and economic growth “an inspiration for the developing countries,” saying Pakistan appreciates China’s success story and desires to learn from it in the areas of rural revitalization, industrialization, socioeconomic development and progress in science and technology.
