CGTN published this video item, entitled “The Communist Party of China: From founding to ruling” – below is their description.
July 1, 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Over the past century, the Party has influenced China’s policies and development profoundly. In 1921 when the CPC was founded, the country was experiencing threats both foreign and domestic. Through 28 years of arduous struggle, the CPC led the Chinese people to defeat the Japanese invaders and found the People’s Republic of China in 1949. The country then spent nearly 30 years establishing a relatively complete and self-sufficient industrial and economic system. After that, it took more than 40 years of economic development to significantly improve people’s livelihoods. China is now the second-largest economy in the world. From the founding in 1921 to becoming independent in 1949 and becoming rich and strong today, these are the 100 years of the CPC. To learn more about the history of the CPC, CGTN anchor Tian Wei sat down with Zhang Baijia, former deputy director of the Party History Research Center of the CPC Central Committee.
