Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, will address a high-level dialogue meeting at which leaders of political parties and organizations from around the world will gather on Dec 1 in Beijing.

Delegates from more than 120 countries and more than 200 leaders have confirmed their plans to attend the meeting, Guo Yezhou, vice-minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, told a news conference on Friday.

This is the first major multilateral diplomacy event hosted by Beijing after the recently concluded 19th CPC National Congress, said Guo, a major official of the Party department in charge of party-to-party exchanges.

The upcoming high-end gathering, the first of its kind, is scheduled to convene through Dec 3 for political parties to collect wisdom for tackling global challenges, to boost exchanges on governance experiences and to learn from one another.

At the meeting, the CPC's leaders and major officials of departments concerned will brief guests on the Party congress as well as Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, Guo said.

In addition, the meeting will present the Party's idea about building a community with a shared future for mankind and jointly building a beautiful world, Guo added.

In addition to the first plenary session of the meeting on Dec 1 and the second plenary session on Dec 3, seminars will be held on Dec 2 on such topics as the new thoughts introduced by the 19th CPC National Congress.

Four seminars will convene to discuss boosting party building, promoting governance, jointly building the Belt and Road and advancing the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.

China aims to address concerns of the global community by building such a global, high-level dialogue platform for political parties, Guo said.

Su Ge, president of the China Institute of International Studies, said the gathering will be one of the most important diplomatic moves taken by Beijing following the Party congress and will highlight the new features of China's diplomacy in the new era.

By hosting the gathering, China is honoring its commitment to contributing to global prosperity and development at a time when the world faces challenges to peace, development and governance, Su said.

"The world is looking forward to China's voice and experiences," Su said, adding that China has played a major role in boosting exchanges.
