Philippine Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio said that under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), China has gained global recognition as an economic powerhouse, and a modern center for research and development, technological advances and manufacturing.

Because of China's contribution, Asia is now the fastest growing economic region in the world, she said. "We look forward to forging more partnerships and collaborations with you as we journey together towards achieving our sustainable development goals."

Zoran Tegeltija, chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), said China under the leadership of the CPC and the hard work of the Chinese people has done a lot for its development and achieved extraordinary successes in various areas.

Venezuelan Minister of Communication and Information Freddy Nanez said the CPC has led the Chinese people through arduous exploration and great practice to achieve the goal of eradicating absolute poverty and create a miracle of long-term social stability and rapid economic development.

Venezuela firmly believes that the CPC will lead the Chinese people toward a bright future of national prosperity and rejuvenation, and is ready to work with China to promote the building of a new multipolar international order featuring equity and justice and jointly usher in a better future, he said.
