peoplesOn the occasion of the  60th anniversary of the National People’s Congress Dr George Tzogopoulos was asked by People’s Daily newspaper to comment on the Chinese political system. In his interview, Tzogopoulos focused on the Beijing speech of President Xi Jinping in which the Chinese leader stressed adherence to China’s political path. Tzogopoulos placed particular emphasis on the policy of reforms in China as well as on President Xi’s phrase: ‘Politicians making boundless promises during elections with no responses to people’s demands after the elections should be avoided’. In his view, the discontinuity between pre-election promises and real policies is a common problem in various countries of the world often leading to significant problems and misunderstandings.
