A delegation of representatives from ethnic groups across the country visited the Museum of the Communist Party of China in Beijing on Wednesday, one day ahead of the celebration of the CPC's 100th founding anniversary.
The delegation, organized by the National Ethnic Affairs Commission, consists of 516 representatives from a variety of ethnic groups in 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, as well as Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, the People's Liberation Army and the People's Armed Police. Many of them are national role models who have made contributions to national unity, poverty alleviation and the fight against COVID-19.
The museum, devoted to permanent exhibitions of the Party's history, recently opened in Beijing to celebrate the centenary. It displays more than 4,000 original pieces of relics with over 400 national first-class objects, such as the first national flag raised at the founding ceremony of New China in 1949 and the first full Chinese translation of "The Communist Manifesto".
Rabten, who is a member of the Tibetan ethnic group from Southwest China's Sichuan province, shed tears when he toured the exhibitions. He said after seeing the history of the CPC's development, he felt very moved that he now lives a good life that was not easy to come by.
