Lu Cairong, vice president of CIPG, said that English and French editions of the book were oriented towards readers in African and other developing countries.

"Despite being an old book, the thoughts it contains are still suitable for present needs," Lu said.

Bah Thierno Maadjou, the charge d'affairs and cultural counselor of the Guinea embassy in China, noted that, last year, when Guinean President Alpha Conde visited China, President Xi presented him with a copy of the French edition, which had provided great support to Guinea in erasing poverty and seeking economic progress.

Before the launching in China, the English and French editions of the book were available in several poverty reduction forums and think tank events in Africa, arousing great interest from participants.

The launching ceremony was held at the sideline of the 24th Beijing International Book Fair. Xu Bu, president and editor-in-chief of the Foreign Language Press, Lin Bin, deputy general manager of the Straits Publishing & Distributing Group, and Xu Mingqiang, chief editor of the book and former editor-in-chief of the Foreign Language Press, were also present at the event.

The book "Xi Jinping: The Governance of China," also published by the Foreign Language Press, has been translated into 21 languages and sold in 6.42 million copies in over 160 countries and regions so far.
