The Malay-language edition of the first volume of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China has been released and promoted in Malaysia.
At an event on Tuesday to release the book in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, Xu Lin, director of the State Council Information Office, said in a video speech that the historic achievements and reforms made by the Communist Party of China and the country since the 18th National Congress of the CPC were realized under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
The "code" of China's development in the new era and the "key" to understand China and the CPC all lie in the first, second and third volumes of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China, said Xu, who is also deputy head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee.
Azhar Azizan Harun, the speaker of Malaysia's House of Representatives, said in his speech at the event that China has made admirable achievements by lifting nearly 100 million people in rural areas out of poverty in less than a decade.
The book will help more Malay readers learn about Xi's policies and views regarding the governance of China and the achievement of prosperity and development, he said.
The Malay edition was jointly translated and published by China's Foreign Languages Press and the Malaysian Institute of Language and Literature.
So far, the first volume of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China has been translated and issued in 36 languages. It comprises 79 of Xi's speeches, talks, interviews, instructions and correspondence in 18 chapters from 2012 to 2014.
