First of all let me take this opportunity in congratulating the committee members of the China Aid Alumni Association Malaysia for their inaugural publication of the CAAAM Magazine. It is indeed a very constructive and paramount effort in enhancing and distributing information amongst the alumni members and related stakeholders. Under the advice and guidance of the Economic and Commercial office of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Malaysia, I am very confident that this magazine will be able to be successful and meet its objectives.
The new Central Leadership of the Communist Party of China with Xi Jinping as the General Secretary and President of the PRC has led the Party and the people of China in confronting the problems and challenges they face, to drive reform and opening up to a deeper level, to modernize the national governance system, and to marshal their enormous strength behind the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation.
China is attracting growing attention worldwide. The world wants to know what changes are in progress in China and what impact they will have on the rest of the world. This magazine through the contribution of Alumni members who will have direct excess and experience in China can contribute to better understand in their own words the thoughts, views and direction of the CPC Central Committee and the President.
This magazine will definitely be very useful in responding to the rising international interest and to enhance the rest of the world’s understanding of the Chinese Government’s philosophy and its domestic and foreign policies.
We are very confident and positive that the Chinese Dream will benefit not only the people of China but also of other countries. The One Belt One Road initiative will not only bring prosperity to China but also along the 21st century maritime silk route. To achieve this goal we will need to share accurate information. We need to build the trust and good neighborly ties. Trust is the very foundation of both interpersonal and state to state relations. This magazine indeed will be one of the building blocks in disseminating the real, true and accurate information in creating and building the trust.
