The event on July 6, 2021 saw the participation of over 10,000 political party members from across the globe.
The Communist Party of China, CPC on July 1, 2021 celebrated its 100th anniversary. The celebration was on July 6, 2021 followed by a World Political Parties’ Summit organised by the CPC through video conference. Amongst the more than 500 political parties from 160 countries that took part was the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement, CPDM. Its 20-strong delegation to the video summit in the Chinese Embassy in Yaounde was led by former minister Jean-Pierre Fogui.
With the theme, “For the people’s wellbeing: The responsibility of political parties,” the event was attended by over 10,000 political party members all over the world. A total of 21 Heads of State and government took the floor Addressing the gathering, Chinese President and General Secretary of the CPC, Xi Jinping, urged world political parties to shoulder the responsibility of the pursuit of their people’s wellbeing and the progress of mankind. He promised that the CPC will pursue the development of China and his country will never seek hegemony.
Xi called for joint opposition to “unilateralism disguised as multilateralism,” saying the CPC was willing to contribute more Chinese solutions and strength to poverty reduction worldwide. He warned that international rules should not be based on what he described as “rules of the few.” The Chinese leader also warned against politicization and stigmatization of COVID-19. He said whether a country is democratic or not should not be judged by “a handful of others.”
Jean-Pierre Fogui lauded “the gigantic achievements of the CPC in 100 years.” He said what struck him most at the summit was the statement by Xi: “To embrace the future, we must first embrace the world.” “The message of the CPDM on the occasion was that in the first 60 years of our independence, we focused on the Western model of governance. China has become the world’s second leading economy today by depending on its culture. African countries develop by undermining an important aspect of their cultures – their languages. Some of our children do not speak our languages. But China has made it to the moon by using its language,” Fogui noted.
Another member of the CPDM delegation, Prof. Elvis Ngolle Ngolle, said most of the world appreciates the principles, methods and policies the Communist Party of China has incarnated for 100 years. “The CPC has succeeded in managing a state with a population of more than 1.4 billion people, made China the world’s second largest economy today, and eradicated extreme poverty amongst almost a billion of its citizens. This is an incredible and exemplary feat every state should emulate,” Prof. Ngolle Ngolle noted. He added that the CPDM has much to copy from the Communist Party of China and the nation China.
