The Chinese Communist Party celebrates 90 years

The inauguration of the high-speed train between Beijing and Shanghai, the bridge opening on the world's longest sea and other great pomp this week will mark the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which governs the formation second world economy for 61 years.

CCP founded on July 1, 1921 in the French Concession in Shanghai, in a clandestine meeting to evade the pursuit of the Kuomintang Nationalist Party.

Although not a particularly round number for the West in traditional Chinese culture the number nine is associated with eternity, so the celebrations have a higher profile than in previous anniversaries. The Chinese regime also wanted to use this date as an excuse to publicly the achievements of the system in a difficult year for Beijing in international context.
