Instead of embroiling in useless blame game, it is incumbent upon all nations to rise to the occasion and meet this challenge with solidarity and closer cooperation.
Question：In your opinion, what is the greatest achievement China has made in the development of recent years?
Umar A.Shah: China’s biggest achievement in national development has been its poverty alleviation programme. Year 2020 is set to be the timeline when China plans to eradicate poverty in the country and becomes a moderately prosperous society in all respects. If China achieves this goal, it would be 10 years ahead of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal aiming to end global poverty by 2030. China's confidence in ending poverty on schedule owes to its strong leadership and people-centered development.

The NPC and CPPCC are two such fantastic forums which bring delegates from all over China to share their ideas and contribute in national decision making process.
Fernando Gorraez Alejandre: China's “two sessions” will confirm its commitment to improving the global governance system with a liberal vision and multilateral actions that allow all developed or developing nations to live together equitably with a win-win vision, in order to build a community of shared future for mankind.
