Storyline


President Xi Jinping, on behalf of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council, extended Spring Festival greetings to all Chinese people Wednesday.

Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered a speech to a festival reception at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, greeting all Chinese on the mainland, in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan and abroad.

"As China's most important traditional festival, the Spring Festival is coming, we are delighted to gather here to usher in the New Year. First of all, on behalf of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, I'm extending our best festival wishes to you, and extending Chinese Lunar New Year greetings to the Chinese people of all ethnic groups, to compatriots in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan and to overseas Chinese. I wish you all good luck in the New Year," said Xi.

When reviewing the achievements made by the Chinese people over the last year, Xi said time is the most objective witness.

Citing the achievements in developing the economy, deepening reform, advancing law-based governance, improving people's lives and fighting poverty, as well as the progress in national defense and armed forces construction, diplomacy on all fronts, and full and strict governance over the CPC, Xi said these progresses have propelled the vessel of China toward new waters.

"The great achievements of China were created by the Chinese people with their own hands after generations of continuous hard work. Let us pay the highest respect to the old generations of heroes and role models, veterans and comrades who had made contributions to the development and progress of our great motherland, as well as to the independence and prosperity of the Chinese nation," said Xi.

Xi said the 19th CPC National Congress held last year outlined the direction for developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era and charted the new journey toward the goal of building a modern socialist China.

Facing a complicated international environment and the arduous missions of reform, development and stability in 2018, Xi called on the whole Party, military and Chinese people of all ethnic groups to rally closely around the CPC Central Committee, and work to turn the guidelines, strategies and arrangements into reality with concrete and down-to-earth efforts.

Xi stressed the importance of family reunion and unity of the people in achieving national prosperity and rejuvenation during his Spring Festival speech.

The happiest thing for the Spring Festival is that family members will get together for family reunion. As the saying goes, a peaceful family will prosper and harmony is strength, Xi said, adding that family has always been valued by the Chinese people.

Chinese people should respect the traditional virtues of the Chinese nation, nurture and practice the core socialist values, and love both family and the country, Xi said.

Xi urged the people to integrate their personal and family dreams with the Chinese Dream.

China should pool the wisdom and strength of more than 1.3 billion Chinese people in more than 400 million households to strive for the great success of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era and realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation, he said.

Xi also encouraged Chinese people to work hard in the new era.

The new era belongs to those who work hard, and happiness can only be earned by filling one's life with endeavors, said Xi.

There will be difficulties in the endeavor, but battling them will also purify the souls and strengthen the faith, said Xi.

Xi stressed that the great endeavor of upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics will take generations, even dozens of generations, of hard work.

Those making such efforts will be richest in spirit, and will have the most profound understanding of happiness, according to Xi.

Xi called on CPC members to always focus their work on the aspirations of the people for a better life, and to always fight for the people and with the people.

There should be both competition and solidarity in the endeavor, said Xi.

"As an ancient poem goes, 'Young leaves replace the old ones in spring and the waves behind drive on those ahead.' During the past 40 years of reform and opening-up, we acted with courage and self-renewal, broke a new path -- a good path, and took a great leap from 'catching up with the times' to 'leading the times'. Today, we should remain true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind, carry forward the pioneering spirit of cutting paths through mountains, and building bridges across rivers, break a new ground in the great social revolution, strengthen ourselves in the great self-reform, and open a new chapter on our vast land in the great struggle of more than 1.3 billion Chinese people," said Xi.

"Finally, I wish you good health, happy family, and all the best for the New Year," he added.

The reception was presided over by Premier Li Keqiang. Other senior leaders, including Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Zhang Gaoli, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji and Han Zheng, were also present.

The Spring Festival, or the Lunar New Year, is regarded as the most important traditional festival for those of Chinese origin, characterized by family reunions, feasts and performances.
