President Xi Jinping on China’s Development Concepts, Thoughts, and Strategies for the New Era


Today, everybody is talking about the Chinese Dream. I believe to achieve national rejuvenation has been the greatest dream of the Chinese people since modern times began.


—  Xi Jinping commented while attending the exhibition “The Road of Rejuvenation” on November 29, 2012.


Reform and opening-up is an ongoing process that we will never stop. Without reform and opening-up, China would not have come this far, and nor will we have a bright future. Issues that emerge in the course of reform and opening-up can only be resolved by pressing ahead with reform and opening-up. 


 —  Xi Jinping stressed when chairing the second group study session of members of the Political Bureau of the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on December 31, 2012.


A socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics, with the Constitution as the “commander,” has taken shape in the country, and on the whole, there are laws to follow in every respect of society. This is a significant achievement that we have scored. Laws are based on practice, and should evolve in keeping with the evolution of practice.


—  Xi Jinping pointed out when chairing the fourth group study session of members of the Political Bureau of the 18th CPC Central Committee on February 23, 2013


Efforts should be made to develop an advanced socialist culture, deepen structural reform of the cultural sector, promote the development and prosperity of the socialist culture, enhance cultural creations, and promote the development of cultural programs and industries, so to provide people with rich intellectual nourishment and a powerful source of strength. We should increase the overall strength and competitiveness of our cultural sector to move toward the goal of developing a great socialist culture in China.


—  Xi Jinping remarked when chairing the 12th group study session of members of the Political Bureau of the 18th CPC Central Committee on December 30, 2013.


China will always follow a path of peaceful development and an opening-up policy featuring mutual benefit and win-win cooperation. China will enhance friendly exchanges with other countries around the world, and work with them to advance the great cause of promoting peace and development of all humankind.


—  Xi Jinping said in a speech that marked the 95th anniversary of the founding of the CPC on July 1, 2016.


To achieve the two Centenary Goals and national rejuvenation, build a moderately prosperous society in all respects, deepen reform in all areas, advance law-based governance, and ensure full and strict governance over the Party constitute an unprecedentedly great cause and also a demanding program that requires centralized and unified leadership of the Central Committee of the CPC, so as to create a strong synergy of the whole society to move toward the right direction.


—  Xi Jinping said when listening to work reports from the Party organizations of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the State Council, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the Supreme People’s Court, and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate on January 16, 2015.  


We should adhere to the new development concept with the vision of innovative, coordinated, green, and open development that is for everyone. This new concept comes from practice and experience in China’s economic development, and we should use it to guide and promote our country’s economic development, unravel difficult problems in the course, and break new ground in economic development.


—  Xi Jinping said when presiding over the 28th group study session of members of the Political Bureau of the 18th CPC Central Committee on November 23, 2015.


The modernization that we pursue is one characterized by harmonious coexistence between man and nature. In addition to creating more material and cultural wealth to meet our people’s ever-increasing needs for a better life, we need also to provide more quality ecological goods to meet the people’s ever-growing demands for a beautiful environment.


We call on the people of all countries to work together to build a community with a shared future for mankind, to build an open, inclusive, clean, and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity.


—  Xi Jinping pointed out in the report delivered at the 19th National Congress of the CPC on October 18, 2017.
