In his celebrating speech, Ambassador Yue Xiaoyong emphasized China's gigantic achievements over the past 68 years. He happily noted that Chinese economy is sound and dynamic with the successful implementation of the great thirteenth five-year plan under the wise leadership of the Communist Party of China(CPC). With great joy the Chinese people are expecting next month grand opening of the 19th National Congress of the CPC, which will map out our future and usher in a new stage of China's development. China’s success brought opportunities not only to China but also to all in the world. The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, the 9th BRICS Summit and Dialogue of Emerging Market and Developing Countries were held successfully in China this year, sending positive signals to the world for sustainable development.
