Su Changhe, Dean of the School of International Relations and Public Affairs at Fudan University in Shanghai, said the country's institutions and governance system are designed to peacefully coexist with the rest of the world through common development with other countries.

Helal Helal, Deputy General Secretary of the Baath Arab Socialist Party of Syria, said China's development does not copy other countries, but is a creation of the CPC and based on its national conditions.
