The Communist Party of China (CPC) began a discussion with foreign political figures and academics in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on Friday, covering political party roles in the innovation in global economic governance.

"The CPC in Dialogue with the World 2016" conference attracted over 300 delegates from more than 50 countries, including party leaders, politicians, think-tank members, academics and representatives of business, according to the International Department of the Central Committee of CPC at the opening ceremony of the conference.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said the CPC is willing to take the opportunity to strengthen cooperation and exchange with parties from other countries.

It is the task of all parties around the world to perfect global economic governance. Parties should exert their advantages to guide the direction of global economic governance, Liu said.

Centering on "Innovation in Global Economic Governance: Initiatives and Actions of Political Parties," this year's conference comes after the G20 summit and focuses on parties' characteristics and functions, Liu said, adding that he believes the conference will give considerable impetus to global economic governance.

As the ruling party of China and an important member of the family of political parties worldwide, the CPC hopes to express the Chinese people's expectations for world economic growth and for the construction and reform of a global economic governance system.

The CPC believes the wisdom of different countries and parties at the conference can contribute to a better and more reasonable international economic order.

The CPC is willing and always ready to exchange ideas, share experience and wisdom, and meet challenges together with parties from all over the globe for the peace and prosperity of the world, according to the department.

Some party leaders also expressed their expectations about communication with the CPC.

Miyegombo Enkhbold, chairman of the Mongolian People's Party (MPP) and chairman of the State Great Hural, Mongolia's parliament, said parties that are working for prosperity play an important role in a nation's development and global development. He said that, in accordance with the principles of equality and mutual respect, parties can come up with common wisdom to contribute to global economic governance.

Chynybai Tursunbekov, president of the Kyrgyz Parliament and a leader of the Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan (SDPK), said the event offers a better understanding of China and the CPC.

Gwede Mantashe, Secretary-General of the African National Congress of South Africa, said he admires China's spirit of responsibility and the CPC's efforts in anti-corruption. He said he hopes to learn from the CPC via the dialogue.

The world economy still faces risks. We need to promote the economic recovery via multilateral actions, according to Dominique de Villepin, former Prime Minister of France.

During the three-day event, topics will include cooperation between major countries in global economic governance, mutually beneficial cooperation in the Belt and Road Initiative, the roles of China and Europe in global governance, and Chinese proposals on global governance.

Through dialogue and discussion, the conference will elaborate new ideas, the tasks and requirements for global governance, and China's five development concepts. Parties will play a leading political role, build consensus and contribute to innovation in global economic governance.

Also on Friday, 60 delegates from 15 African ruling parties attended the Second China-Africa Political Parties Theoretical Seminar, which was held within the framework of the dialogue.

Song Tao, minister of the International Department of the Central Committee of the CPC, called on Chinese and African political parties to play a leading role in promoting exchanges on development and enhancing pragmatic cooperation between China and Africa.

This year marks the 60th year since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Africa. The CPC pledged to innovate communication channels, enrich communication, and deepen exchanges with African political parties, Song said.

"The CPC in Dialogue with the World" has been held twice since 2014, aimed at providing a platform for global communication and sharing the policies and views of the CPC.
