French writer lauds Xi's book on governance of China

(Xinhua)    19:25, March 10, 2015

PARIS, March 10 -- Chinese President Xi Jinping's new book "The Governance of China" marks a milestone for the country and the Communist Party of China (CPC), said French writer Sonia Bressler in an article.

As one of the symbols of Xi's new policies, the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiatives, which involves land, sea, even air routes, will enable China to further broaden international collaboration, friendship and partnerships, according to the article posted on the Senscritique.com website on March 2.

And the Belt and Road Initiatives will also bring the world broader imagination space in economic, ecological and intellectual areas.

Numerous details of the policy deserve deeper review and discussion, said Bressler.

Xi's book, which is currently distributed worldwide in multiple languages including Chinese, English, French, Russian, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Japanese, is "showing surprising principles of simplicity and authenticity," she noted.

At a time when Western policies lean more towards virtual spaces, it is pleasant to read a real book like this one that sounds like a work on general policies and whose content invites you to dream, develop your interest and open up to humanity, she wrote.

The book is a compilation of Xi Jinping's major works from Nov. 15, 2012, to June 13, 2014. It comprises 79 speeches, talks, interviews, instructions and correspondences across 18 chapters. Each item is accompanied by relevant notes about China's social system, history and culture for readers' reference.

In the West, people don't know much about the new president of China, noted the French writer. However, after being elected head of state, Xi has established an intelligent power in China and has led the country toward deeper essential reforms.

From the first chapter to the last, the book has always been emphasizing the importance of political stability.

"Stick to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics" and "Improve the CPC leadership," both of which ensure the party's political primacy and thus assure social stability, wrote Bressler.

Through his speeches, Xi outlines the Chinese Dream, based on a "political stability" enabling far-reaching reform, which in turn promotes economic development, the article said.

The chapter on the Chinese Dream unveils the great mission of contemporary China: national rejuvenation and personal well-being, it said.

After the chapter on the Chinese Dream, readers see some chapters on deepening reform and enhancing economic development, which lead to chapters on rule of law, advanced culture, social undertakings and ecological progress.

In his book, Xi affirms very clearly that the fight against corruption is fundamental to China's future, Bressler wrote.

On China's development path, Xi emphasized peaceful development as it constitutes a strategic choice made by the CPC taking into account the trends of the times and the vital interests of China, she wrote.
