On March 10, the International Department of the CPC Central Committee held the Annual Meeting of Silk Road Club (online), which was attended by Vice-minister Chen Zhou and near 60 representatives from 6 countries in South and Southeast Asia, including Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Malaysia. Mr. Liu Genfa, Deputy Director-General of Department of International Exchange, was invited to the meeting to deliver a themed lecture on "China's new development pattern".
Mr. Liu introduced in detail to the foreign representatives the guidelines of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and the key points of China's 14th Five-Year Plan. His suggestions on how to promote interconnection and deepen practical cooperation to tackle common challenges for mutual benefits and win-win results won acclaim from both the International Department and other attendants.
