Guide­lines for ac­tion plan

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - COMMENT - — XIN­HUA NEWS AGENCY

In a re­cent speech at a meet­ing of pro­vin­cial and min­is­te­rial-level of­fi­cials, Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping elab­o­rated on how China should press ahead with its de­vel­op­ment. Xi’s in-depth analy­ses of the global sit­u­a­tion, China’s de­vel­op­ment and the state of the Com­mu­nist Party of China serve as the guide­lines for an ac­tion plan for the fu­ture. Af­ter nearly a cen­tury of strug­gle un­der the lead­er­ship of the CPC, Chi­nese peo­ple have never been so close to achiev­ing the great re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Chi­nese na­tion or more con­fi­dent that this dream will be re­al­ized. How­ever, the nearer we get to our long-cher­ished dream, the more cool-headed we should be, in or­der to stay true to our orig­i­nal com­mit­ment and ad­vance our de­vel­op­ment.

We should re­al­ize that China is in a new stage of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics and a se­ries of his­tor­i­cal changes to the na­tion and the Party since the 18th Na­tional Congress of the CPC means China is now at a new start­ing point. How­ever, China’s per capita GDP just ex­ceeds $8,000 de­spite it be­ing the world’s sec­ond­largest econ­omy, and its de­vel­op­ment is still un­even among re­gions as well as there be­ing more than 43 mil­lion peo­ple still to be lifted out of poverty. Only by rec­og­niz­ing th­ese con­di­tions can the var­i­ous prob­lems that have emerged be solved and the right poli­cies be im­ple­mented to ad­vance the so­cial­ist cause with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics and pro­mote the all-round de­vel­op­ment and progress of so­ci­ety.

As Xi said at the meet­ing, peo­ple’s pur­suit of a bet­ter life is what we have been strug­gling for. We should con­tin­u­ously strive to im­prove peo­ple’s liveli­hoods, up­hold so­cial fair­ness and jus­tice, and seek to en­sure all cit­i­zens can share the gains ac­cru­ing from the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment so all feel a sense of well-be­ing.

China un­der the lead­er­ship of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Xi as the core can look for­ward to a brighter fu­ture.
