In this episode of Gen Z's Words, Sherif Abdelsamie joins us to express his thoughts on the recent 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. Sherif, who was born in Egypt, is an MBA student at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing who has lived in China for 24 years.

In recent years China and Egypt have had greater economic ties as China has made significant contributions to Egypt's economy. Egypt, as part of the Belt and Road Initiative, initiated in 2013, has benefited from the increased business with China.

As an Egyptian student and businessman, Sherif is excited to see what the future holds for his country and China. Sherif says he has witnessed many great changes in China in the past 24 years, including a significant decrease in environmental pollution, especially after the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum meeting in Beijing in 2014 that adopted polices aimed at reducing the country's carbon emissions.

Another notable change Sherif says he has observed is a stronger sense of identity among Chinese over the past 10 years. "They are very, very confident with who they are," he says.
