BEIJING, April 17 (Xinhua) -- The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Sunday sent a congratulatory message to Cuba's Communist Party (CCP) for the opening of its Sixth National Congress on Saturday.

On behalf of the CPC and the Chinese people, the committee hailed the event and extended via the congress the most cordial greetings to all CCP members and the Cuban people.

Under the CCP's leadership, the Cuban people work arduously and persistently to develop their economy and improve their livelihood, winning wide support from the international community. The CPC is overjoyed by their achievements since the previous national congress, the message said.

The ongoing congress is of great significance for Cuba as the country is entering a critical period. It will have a momentous and far-reaching impact on the sustained development of Cuba's socialist cause, the message added.

China-Cuba relations have weathered the vicissitudes of the international arena. The CPC and the Chinese government have always viewed bilateral ties from a strategic and a long-term perspective and remain committed to consolidating and developing the traditional friendship between the two countries.

The CPC is willing to work together with the CCP to push forward the development of the friendly partnership of cooperation between the two countries, the message said.

The four-day congress, the first in 14 years, opened Saturday with a five-year economic reform plan being the main topic of discussion.
