International Forum on Democracy Held in Beijing




The third "International Forum on Democracy: Shared Human Values" was held this Wednesday in Beijing.


Li Shulei, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and head of the Department of Communication of the Central Committee of the CPC, attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech.


More than 200 guests from various countries, regions, and international organizations participated in discussions on topics such as "Democracy and Modern Governance," "Democracy and Rule of Law in the Digital Age," "AI and the Future of Democracy," and "Democracy and Global Governance in a Multipolar World."


They agreed that democracy is a significant sign of the progress of human civilization and is what the CPC and the Chinese people have consistently pursued.


After lengthy studies, China has built a path of democratic development with Chinese characteristics, which safeguards the democratic rights of over 1.4 billion Chinese people and provides strong support for promoting the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization, according to the guests.


Noting that democracy is a common value of all humanity, the guests called for full respect for the efforts of developing countries to pursue, develop, and realize democracy and expressed their opposition to acts aimed at triggering division, spreading prejudices, and undermining peace in the name of democracy.


The forum was organized by the Department of Communication of the Central Committee of the CPC and the Information Office of the State Council and co-organized by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the China Media Group, and the China International Publishing Group.
