Guidance for development
Speaking at a recent meeting of provincial and ministeriallevel officials, President Xi Jinping highlighted the significant achievements accomplished by the nation, which have been attained even though it has had to endure numerous hardships and sufferings in modern times. Socialism with Chinese characteristics embodies the ideals and explorations of generations of Communist Party of China members and contains the fruits of their arduous struggles and huge sacrifices over decades.
Xi pointed out the internal logic of the country’s development, and made the significant strategic judgment that socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new development stage.
Xi’s vision and judgment is based on his acute understanding of the country’s actual conditions and is thus of great significance to the country’s adherence to and continuous efforts to advance its development cause.
Over the past five years, the country has resolved a number of deep-rooted and previously unaddressed problems, and brought new vitality to the development cause of the nation.
Rallying Chinese people of all ethnic groups, China’s leadership with Xi as the core has worked out a series of strategic layouts and measures that have helped the country score new achievements in advancing reforms and economic development, and strengthening the nation’s defense capabilities and its diplomatic capabilities.
The Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions offered by China to the rest of the world and the receptive welcome they have received have also enhanced Chinese people’s confidence in the country’s socialist development path, theories, system and culture.
Xi’s remarks at the meeting should encourage the Chinese people to keep a sober vision and more accurately take hold of the general development trends of China and the world today.
The thoughts embodied in his remarks offer Chinese people a better understanding of the achievements made by socialism with Chinese characteristics and guidance on how to make further achievements in the context of new circumstances.
