CHONGQING, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- 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 evolution of 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.
Since 2014, The CPC in Dialogue with the World conference has been held twice, aiming to provide a platform to let the world know the policies of the Party and to communicate them more widely.
