Coming in the wake of September's Hangzhou G20 summit and with the theme of "Innovation in Global Economic Governance: Initiatives and Actions of Political Parties," the dialogue is set to trigger a new round of brainstorming regarding global cooperation for, and solutions to, world economic hardships.

Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), urged parties in various countries to beef up their roles in promoting global economic governance by translating public wisdom into the theory and guidelines for national development. Liu made these remarks in his speech at the opening ceremony of the Dialogue.

While reiterating the significance of innovation and reform, many participants at the Dialogue also called for attention to global sustainable development – including issues of environment protection, ecology preservation and green development – as the world faces more and more non-traditional challenges.

During the three-day dialogue, participants will seek to contribute their understanding and vision of world economic governance through discussing the new concepts, tasks and requirements in global governance set forth by Chinese President Xi Jinping and China's five development concepts.

The annual dialogue, sponsored by the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, has served as an exchange platform between the CPC, China's ruling Party, and the rest of the world since it was launched in 2014.

The world, which is a big village, needs diversity, and we can only learn from one another by talking to different types of people, said Jean Chretien, former prime minister of Canada, who is also in Chongqing for the dialogue. He praised the role of this Dialogue and believed it will generate positive effects on global economic recovery in the wake of the G20 Hangzhou summit.

"The Dialogue helps us get a close look at China and its ruling Party CPC as well as the country's important initiatives," said Chynybai Tursunbekov, president of the parliament of Kyrkyzstan at the opening ceremony.

Song Tao, minister of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, presided over the opening ceremony. Dominique de Villepin, former prime minister of France, Miyegombo Enkhbold, chairman of the Mongolian People's Party, Gwede Mantashe, secretary-general of the African National Congress, and Sun Zhengcai, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Party chief of Chongqing Municipality, attended the Dialogue and delivered the keynote speeches at the opening ceremony.
