Beijing Review is a venerable journal in Beijing, China. “It is part of Beijing Review’s mission to promote a wider knowledge of the rationale underlying China’s phenomenal transformation. President Xi Jinping’s ideas on development and international cooperation, such as a targeted approach to poverty alleviation, through which China has eradicated absolute poverty, and the Belt and Road Initiative that aims to enhance connectivity along and beyond the ancient Silk Road routes are our focus,” Li Yafang, President of CICG Americas, Beijing Review’s publisher, elaborated.

The book discusses critical issues regarding China’s development over the past decade. Among these are its political system and democratic model, the challenges the Communist Party of China faces and its achievements, and the country’s role in promoting global peace and cooperation in the post-pandemic world.
