Hu also met with senior officials including Reem Al-Hashimy, the UAE minister of state for international cooperation, to introduce Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and innovative practices of Xi during his earlier years of work in southeast China's Fujian Province.
The UAE side hailed China's historical achievements under the leadership of Xi, and appraised the significance of the party congress, saying the UAE stands ready to promote development of bilateral relations.
