The 16th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party and China’s Foreign Policy
The 16th Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Congress held on November 2003 in the arena of foreign policy is significant for China in the new century. The Party Congress did make a major or rather a fundamental change. The fundamental position and attitude of the Chinese foreign policy is moving from “opposing hegemony” in the past decade to “maintaining international peace and promoting common development,” in a more positive direction.

Therefore, the change is real.
