the year by which the Com­mu­nist Party of China has vowed to build a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety

Yang Long­wen, Party chief of Dahua Yao au­tonomous county in the Guangxi Zhuang au­tonomous re­gion, said that though the county suf­fered de­ser­ti­fi­ca­tion, it had seen re­mark­able changes due to the gov­ern­ment drive to elim­i­nate ru­ral poverty. High­ways have been built and res­i­dents moved from old thatched and mud-brick cot­tages into new build­ings, Yang said.

“We’ ll im­ple­ment Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Xi’s re­quire­ments and de­ci­sions by the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with solid de­ter­mi­na­tion and un­tir­ing en­ergy,” Yang said.

Progress has also been seen in a small vil­lage in Hei­long - jiang prov­ince.

“The per capita in­come dou­bled in the past five years and vil­lagers feel much hap­pier,” said Fu Hu­at­ing, Party chief of Xing­shisi, a vil­lage in Gan­nan county. “We will roll up our sleeves and work harder, staunchly fol­low­ing the Party.”

Xi said that once China had a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety, by 2020, the Party and peo­ple across the coun­try would be mo­ti­vated to build a mod­ern­ized so­cial­ist coun­try by 2049, the cen­te­nary of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China.

The re­marks have in­spired the na­tion to be con­fi­dent in re­al­iz­ing the Chi­nese dream of na­tional re­ju­ve­na­tion.

“Af­ter study­ing the speech, we’re all fully con­fi­dent that a good life lies ahead,” said Chen Yi­fan, deputy head of Du­tang, a town in Heze, in Shan­dong prov­ince.

The 11th Panchen Lama Bain­qen Er­dini Qoigy­i­jabu per­forms a head-touch­ing rit­ual to bless be­liev­ers in Lhasa, Ti­bet au­tonomous re­gion, on Sun­day. Qoigy­i­jabu, a mem­ber of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Na­tional Com­mit­tee of the Chi­nese Peo­ple’s Po­lit­i­cal Con­sul­ta­tive Con­fer­ence and vice-pres­i­dent of the Bud­dhist As­so­ci­a­tion of China, has per­formed a se­ries of Bud­dhist ser­vices in Lhasa in re­cent days.
