Words of Xi bring fortitude to people
President Xi Jinping’s speech at a high-level workshop has inspired confidence for the nation to create a moderately prosperous society and achieve the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.
The workshop for provincial- and ministerial-level officials on Wednesday and Thursday was held in preparation for the 19th Communist Party of China National Congress later this year. The congress will elect the leadership for the next five-year term.
Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, outlined a blueprint for the Party and the state, showing the direction for development.
“Building a moderately prosperous society by 2020 is a promise the CPC has made to the people and to history,” Xi said.
The speech resonated with grassroots officials, who agreed with Xi that the five years since the 18th CPC National Congress have seen extraordinary development.
