BBC Chinese published a report that discussed the statements that two Chinese leaders made during the recent National People’s Congress. Wang Yang, Member of the Politburo of the Communist Party of China, attended the meeting held by the delegates of the National People’s Congress from An Hui Province. Wang praised the development China has made in recent years and attributed China’s success to the system and path that it has adopted. Wang said that China is developing rapidly and peacefully; he said the Western world is concerned about it and has used a number of methods in an attempt to slow down China’s growth. On March 8, Wu Bangguo, the departing Chairman and Party Secretary of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, asserted that China will consistently adopt the system that is represented by its people and will not follow the political model of the Western world. In 2009, Wu also denied the possibility that China would ever allow multiple parties.
