March 4, 2024 (EIRNS)—The second session of the 14th National People’s Congress (NPC) will open in Beijing today. The second session of the 14th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) began yesterday, also in Beijing. During what is collectively known as the two sessions, Chinese policymakers are set to release social and economic development goals for this year, including the annual GDP growth target, and the policies to achieve them. These sessions are the most important political events of the country, all the more important as this year marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

On March 1, China’s leading English-language daily, Global Times, quoted international personalities on the two sessions. The first among them was Helga Zepp-LaRouche: “I expect that this most important Chinese meeting will address the strategic challenges based on President Xi Jinping’s conception of a community with a shared future for humanity, which could be a specification of the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative,” Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of Germany-based political and economic think tank the Schiller Institute, told the Global Times.

“Zepp-LaRouche said that she is hopeful the two sessions, as one of China’s most important political events, will show the world the way forward in terms of how to overcome the mistaken view that a country or a group of countries must defend its interests against another group by any means necessary,” wrote the daily.
