Over 40 netizens invited by People's Daily Online, Xinhua Net and participated in the Open Day activities.

Later, netizens observed the meeting between Li Jinjun, Vice Minister of the IDCPC and guests from Germany who came with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle for the three-day visit in China.

Lucrezia Jochimsen from the Left Party in Germany said she is happy to have face-to-face interaction with Chinese online users and the netizens' visit is really a big surprise to them. She said although the German guests here came from different parties, they have one belief in common that they would enhance communications and cooperation with China.

Netizens invited by People's Daily Online used microblog to broadcast the Open Day live, instantly share what they saw, heard and how they felt.

Since its founding in 1951, the International Department, under the direct care and leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has seen a continuous expansion of its international exchanges and communications serving the key tasks of the Party.

Its mission is to serve China's reform and opening up and its modernization drive, safeguard world peace, seek common development and propel progress of mankind by taking an active part in multi-forms of new-type inter-party exchanges and cooperation.

The CPC associates with not only the communist parties and other left-wing parties of the world as it originally did but also national democratic parties of the developing countries and political parties and statesmen of various ideologies and natures, such as socialist, labor and conservative parties in the developed countries as well as their international organizations, as it expands.

Up till now, the CPC has established contacts and exchanges with more than 400 political parties and organizations in more than 140 countries, most of which are either parties in office or parties participating in government.
