Mr. Wang Chen, Member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Deputy Chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, President of the China Law Society, delivered a keynote speech to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Renmin University of China Law School on October 2nd.
Mr. Wang Chen delivered a speech online.
Wang stressed that, President Xi Jinping and the Chinese government attached great importance to the rule of law. Law-based governance in all fields had been prioritized and the rule of law had been advanced with unprecedented resolve and intensity in China. As a result, the socialist legal and rule of law systems with Chinese characteristics had been steadily improved. Though COVID-19 struck suddenly, China managed to balance pandemic control with economic and social development in accordance with laws and regulations, and had made great achievements in battling the coronavirus, which epitomized Chinese spirit and responsibility and highlighted China's contribution to global public health security.
Wang also pointed out that, China would not close its door; she would open it only wider. We were fully committed to promoting socialist rule of law with Chinese characteristics and we also stood ready to work with legal professionals around the world for mutual learning, broader cooperation channels, new cooperation models, and wider exchanges in fields such as legal education, studies and practices. On key issues such as strengthening legal protection for public health, global technological governance, the reform of global governance system and the training of legal professionals, our in-depth study and discussions would help us share best practices and build more common understandings. Such efforts would contribute to the exchanges between civilizations on the rule of law and the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
