Hosted by the International Department of the CPC Central Committee, the meeting is expected to last until Monday.

The meeting aims at sharing experience on management, conducting communication to enhance strategic trust and building a community with a shared future for mankind, the Guangzhou-based media reported.

Meanwhile on the same day in Shenzhen, the first Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) political parties forum was also held, with attendees having agreed on more exchanges and cooperation to promote regional development and peace, the Xinhua News Agency reported.

The forum invited about 200 representatives of more than 30 political parties from 18 SCO member states, observer states and dialogue partners.

Representatives agreed to advocate the Shanghai spirit of "mutual trust, mutual benefit, equality, mutual consultations, respect for cultural diversity, and pursuit of common development" and work to inject new impetus into the common prosperity of the region, Xinhua said.
