Over 100 diplomatic envoys of foreign countries and representatives of international
organizations to China visited an exhibition on the history of the Communist Party of
China (CPC) at the Museum of the CPC in Beijing on June 24.
Through the exhibition under the theme “staying true to the founding mission,” they
got a better understanding of the extraordinary journey of the CPC over the past
At the exhibition hall for the site of the first National Congress of the CPC, they saw
photos and manuscripts that bring back memories of the revolutionary practice of the
CPC in its early days and felt the original aspiration of the CPC members.
“I saw how the CPC has struggled for its goals at the exhibition. The founding of the
New China helped the Chinese people ‘stand up’,” said Ahcene Boukhelfa, Algerian
Ambassador to China, who noted that every Chinese has the opportunities to realize
his/her dreams today.
Through art forms including paintings, sculptures, music and videos, as well as
technological means related to sound and lighting, the exhibition aims to bring
immersive experience to visitors.
A glasses-free 3D animated film at the exhibition showed envoys and representatives
vividly the Long March military retreat in the CPC history. They recorded the film
with their mobile phones, then gave a big round of applause after hearing the
interpretation of the narrator’s words: “Every generation has its own long march, and
every generation must see that march through.”
Sudanese Ambassador to China Gafar Karar Ahmed pointed out that the CPC has led
its people out of poverty and backwardness, and developed China into the world’s
second-largest economy, sincerely keeping its promise to the Chinese people.
China’s experience in development belongs to both the country itself and the entire
world, the Sudanese ambassador said.
At a simulated high-speed train cab, foreign envoys and representatives tried driving
trains and experienced the speed of China’s railways.
Jose Luis Bernal, Mexican Ambassador to China, has been in China for over 4 years,
and marveled at China’s rapid development. “I have witnessed changes in China with
my own eyes. From my trips to many Chinese cities and villages, I find that China’s
transportation is getting more convenient, and its technologies have continuously
advanced,” he said.
More and more people in China have enjoyed modern life, said the Mexican
ambassador, adding that smartphones and computers are widely used even in remote mountainous areas in China.
The CPC has strived to leave no region or individual behind on the road to realizing
common prosperity, according to him.
Through the exhibits from different stages in the CPC history, envoys and
representatives got to learn about the stories behind the development miracles the
Chinese people have achieved under the leadership of the CPC.
After visiting the exhibition, they took selfies and posed for group photographs in
front of a huge CPC flag sculpture at the west square of the Museum of the CPC.
It’s really necessary to build such a museum for permanent and comprehensive
exhibitions of the CPC history, said Carlos Miguel Pereira, Cuban Ambassador to
China, who considers understanding the CPC history a necessity for learning about
