Addressing the function, Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Bai Tian highlighted the enormous strides forward that country had made under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, which has guaranteed stability and national direction.
“It has been leading the Chinese people on a path suitable to China’s national conditions, and representing the interests of the Chinese people through its policies and strategies. This is the fundamental reason why the Chinese Communist Party is able to win public support, stay in power and work miracles.
“China has gone through magnificent changes. The Chinese nation has stood up, grown rich, and become strong. Next year the Chinese people will build China into a well-off society, meaning the total elimination of poverty in China, and that 1.4 billion people will be living better-off lives.
