Leaders from more than 200 parties and political organizations in more than 120 countries have registered for the meeting, which is scheduled to last from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3.
"The dialogue is held in response to the request from parties around the world for in-depth knowledge of the 19th CPC National Congress, Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and the concept of building a community of shared future for mankind and a better world," Guo said.
"It is aimed at providing an opportunity for equal communication between global parties and pooling their wisdom to deal with development difficulties and challenges the human society is facing," Guo noted. "It is hoped that parties can learn from each other about the experience of party and state governance, and reach consensus on major issues concerning the future of mankind."
"It will be the first high-level dialogue the CPC holds with the world's parties and is of great significance for both the CPC and other parties," Guo said.
During the dialogue, the CPC will also hold routine discussions with political parties from Africa, Central Asia and the United States.
