The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China marks a historic point for the country and means a lot to the world, foreign reporters said on Friday when more than 50 of them visited an exhibition showcasing China's progress in the past five years.

Zubair Qureshi, a senior correspondent from the Daily Pakistan Observer, said the exhibition shows the commitment and resolve of China to develop itself into a modern economy.

"I was impressed, particularly by Chinese models of nuclear submarines and other military equipment, since they looked to me quite effective," he said.

The congress is a historic moment for China to develop into a moderately prosperous country, he said.

Many global issues can be resolved with China's wisdom and experience, since the country is taking on a role as a global leader, he added.

Ronald Kato, a journalist from New Vision newspaper in Uganda, said it is amazing that China has made such remarkable progress in science and technology as well as in agriculture.

He said the report delivered by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, at the congress on Wednesday recognized the challenges that China is going through and gives an idea of the direction that China wants to take.

"It would be interesting to see what China will be like according to his vision by 2050," he said, adding that he thinks it will be a better place, and if China is a better place, the world will be a better place, too.

China is playing an increasingly important role in the international community, and the country is leading the way in global governance, he added.

Zaw Ye Aung, a journalist from Skynet Up to Date media in Myanmar, said the development of China over the past five years has been outstanding.

"The achievement in technology impresses me most. The C919 jet (the first large passenger aircraft produced in China) is one of the milestones of China," he said.

Journalists around the world are interested in the congress, he said, adding that they can learn more about China from the congress.
