The First Ses­sion of the 13th Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress con­cluded on March 20. Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jinping de­liv­ered a speech at the clos­ing meet­ing. Edited ex­cerpts of a Xin­hua News Agency re­port on the speech fol­low: ward this great spirit of pur­su­ing dreams, China can and will re­al­ize the great re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Chi­nese na­tion.

“It is a coun­try where all power of the state be­longs to the peo­ple. We must base our ef­forts on the in­ter­ests of the peo­ple, en­sure the prin­ci­pal sta­tus of the peo­ple, humbly learn from the peo­ple, and heed their needs and draw on their wis­dom,” he said.

Ex­press­ing his full con­fi­dence in China’s fu­ture, Xi urged ev­ery­one to adapt to the new his­toric junc­ture for the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try and act in re­sponse to the evo­lu­tion of the prin­ci­pal con­tra­dic­tion in Chi­nese so­ci­ety.

The Chi­nese peo­ple have al­ways had the sense of jus­tice and com­pas­sion and tied their des­tiny closely to that of the peo­ple around the world, he said.

“The Chi­nese peo­ple are al­ways ready to do their ut­most to con­trib­ute to the peace and de­vel­op­ment of hu­man­ity,” he said.

Xi stressed that the lead­er­ship of the Com­mu­nist Party of China is the defin­ing fea­ture of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics and the Party is the high­est force for po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship and the fun­da­men­tal guar­an­tee of the great re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Chi­nese na­tion.
