The newly published English version of a book on communication between President Xi Jinping and college students between December 1983 and July 2019 has received a warm welcome from many young foreigners.

Named Xi Jinping and College Students, the book offers a vivid description of Xi's insights into youth work through 25 interviews with young people who had communicated with him. The original Chinese version of the book was published in November 2020.

Participants at a book launch ceremony held in Beijing on Friday said that the English edition of the book will help young foreigners better understand the Chinese leader and inspire those who want to learn from China's development experience.

Victoria Khu, from Russia, said that after reading the book, she was impressed by Xi's empathetic approach toward students and people in general.

"We could see this from his letters," she said.

Sarah Marjorey, from Uganda, who is currently studying in China for a doctorate, said that as she is interested in rural revitalization and poverty alleviation, she was glad that the book deals with Xi's communication with students on his visit to rural communities.

"My favorite quote from the book is that the young people should look for hardships. This really was an encouragement to me," she said.

The English version of the book was published by Pakistan's Beyond The Horizon Publications, and is now available in bookstores in Pakistan.

The book will soon also be published in a series of other languages, including Russian, French, Spanish and Arabic.
