The advancement of Chinese culture worldwide and protecting Chinese interests will remain priorities.
“The 19th NCCPC will draw a roadmap for China’s future development. It will lead its society and economy to an even better path of growth,” said Song Guo, president of the Roundtable of Chinese American Organizations.
China has made great strides over the past five years, and economic growth has remained steadfast, said Guipeng Wen, president of the Great Los Angeles Chinese American Forum.
