‘CPC wins overwhelming trust among Chinese people’


VIENTIANE: The Communist Party of China (CPC) has won “the Chinese people’s overwhelming trust” and always put the people’s interests first, former Lao Deputy Prime Minister Somsavat Lengsavad has said.
On the centenary of the CPC’s founding, Somsavat, a former politburo member of the Central Committee of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP), expressed confidence that the CPC will “stay true to its founding mission and remember its original aspiration and mission.” “In the early days of Wuhan’s fight against the COVID-19 epidemic, this metropolis with a population of 10 million swiftly calmed down, when every people strictly followed the requirements of self-isolation at home,” Somsavat told Chinese media in a recent interview.
“It was the Spring Festival, but all the Wuhan citizens abandoned their traditional festival customs of visiting relatives and friends, and just followed the party’s guidance, which fully reflects the Chinese people’s overwhelming trust in the Communist Party of China,” Somsavat said. After the COVID-19 outbreak, the global economy was in a downturn, but China bucked the trend and achieved full resumption of production and economic recovery, he said, adding that the wise and strong leadership of the CPC is the decisive factor in this achievement.
Somsavat, aged over 70, once served as the secretary of the former Lao President Kaysone Phomvihane, the foreign minister and head of the LPRP Central Committee’s commission for external relations, and deputy prime minister, and maintained close contacts with China.
“The Communist Party of China is a great political party. There would not be New China without the Communist Party of China, which is an indisputable fact,” Somsavat said, adding that after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the CPC has been leading the Chinese people to striving for the rapid socio-economic development. – Agencies
