– Remember the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee Xi Jinping
Xi Jinping’s Atlas
On December 7, 2012, Xi Jinping, the 23-year-old general secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee, left Beijing for the first time to visit other places and came to the forefront of reform and opening up in Guangdong Province. Shenzhen was selected as the first stop. On this trip all the way, he skidded lightly and directly contacted the masses and exchanged cordially.
On December 8, he came to Lianhua Mountain in Shenzhen. Under the watchful eyes of many tourists, he offered a flower basket to the statue of Deng Xiaoping. Afterwards, Xi Jinping walked to the crowd and shook hands with the crowd to wave to everyone.
During his inspection tour in Guangdong, he emphasized that the entire party and people of all ethnic groups throughout the country must unswervingly follow the road to a strong country with reform and opening up and pay more attention to the systematic nature, integrity, and coordination of reforms so that the reforms do not stop and the opening does not stop.
Xi Jinping’s route to inspect in Guangdong was passed by Deng Xiaoping when he inspected the South 20 years ago, which has profound implications. Some media commented: This is a leader who brings a fresh culture of governance, unswervingly promotes reform and opening up, and leads the Chinese nation to realize the Chinese dream.
Xi Jinping, 59, was elected as the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee at the First Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on November 15, 2012, becoming the first top CPC leader born after the founding of New China. After experiencing the three generations of the central leadership collective with Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Jiang Zemin as the core, and the collective leadership of the Party Central Committee with Hu Jintao as the general secretary, the Chinese Communist Party, which has gone through 91 years of history, ushered in a new leader.
As China entered a decisive phase of building a well-to-do society in an all-round way, Xi Jinping walked to the center of China’s political stage and took over the historic baton. At the same time, as the leader of the world’s second-largest economy, he also stands at the forefront of the world stage.
All China and the world have turned their gaze to Xi Jinping:
How to lead the world’s largest political party with more than 82 million party members to better serve the people?
How to lead the 1.3 billion Chinese people in their struggle to achieve the goals of “building a well-to-do society in the 100 years since the founding of the Communist Party of China and establishing a prosperous, strong, democratic, civilized and harmonious socialist modern country 100 years after the founding of the People’s Republic of China?”
– How to lead China to make its due contribution to world peace and development?
At noon on the day after the end of the First Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, Xi Jinping met with more than 500 Chinese and foreign reporters. He confessed that he shouldered heavy burdens and summed up the mission of the new central leadership collective into three responsibilities: responsibilities to the nation, and People’s responsibilities and responsibilities to the party.
This solemn promise shows that Xi Jinping will take on the historical responsibility of the Chinese nation as his belief and pursuit of governing the country.

“The people’s yearning for a better life is our goal.”
“The people’s yearning for a better life is our goal.” The first public speech after Xi Jinping was elected general secretary clearly demonstrated his firm determination to lead the Communist Party in power for the people.
After he took up the new post, he was visiting the “Road to Revival” exhibition with other members of the Politburo Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee. He said: “Now, everyone is discussing the Chinese dream. I believe that achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest achievement of the Chinese nation in modern times. dream.”
Xi Jinping always regards the people’s dream as his dream. 43 years ago, he worked as an educated youth to jump into the countryside in northern Shaanxi for seven years. His first “official title” is the party branch secretary of the brigade (administrative village) that constitutes the “cell” of the CCP’s organizational system. In 2007, Xi Jinping, who had been working for many years at the grassroots and local levels, was elected member of the Politburo Standing Committee, served as secretary of the Central Secretariat, and served as principal of the Central Party School. He then served as vice chairman of the People’s Republic of China and vice chairman of the Central Military Commission. For the past five years, he has directly participated in the research and formulation of the party and the state’s major policies, and has participated in the organization of the major decision-making and deployment of the central government.
From Xi’an to Beijing, from Hebei to Fujian, from Zhejiang to Shanghai, from poor areas in the west to the political and cultural centers of the country, from underdeveloped areas in the east to developed coastal areas, Xi Jinping’s political experience spans villages, counties, cities, and provinces ( The municipality) and the main positions of the Party, the government, and the military. He often said that for the “official” to serve one term, we must benefit the other party, and we must “constantly worry about worrying and often read the people’s care.” In order to realize the dream of a strong national and rich people, he pondered and practiced repeatedly in his long political career. He put forward a series of discussions and proposals on the overall layout of the five-in-one socialist cause with Chinese characteristics:
——In economic construction, insisting on development is the hard truth, but it does not encourage blind and brutal development; it must adhere to scientific development, and cannot engage in the development of resources, the development of exhausting fish, and the development of bricks moving in and out ;
In terms of political construction, we must adhere to the idea that all state power belongs to the people, actively and steadily push forward the reform of the political system, and unswervingly follow the political development path of socialism with Chinese characteristics; we must abide by constitutional principles, promote constitutional spirit, and fulfill the constitutional mission. Governing the country according to law and governing according to the constitution;
——In cultural construction, we must pay attention to personnel training, pay attention to nurturing the national spirit, and in particular promote the national anthem spirit of “building our new Great Wall with our flesh and blood”;
——In social construction, we must base ourselves on the basic national condition of the primary stage of socialism, continuously guarantee and improve people’s livelihood on the basis of economic development, establish a correct outlook on well-being, strengthen the concept of creating a happy life through hard work, and make concerted efforts to build harmony. society;
– In the construction of an ecological civilization, we must adhere to the basic national policy of resource conservation and environmental protection, take the road of sustainable development, and make due contributions to the sustainable development of humankind.
The Communist Party of China is the core of leadership in leading the Chinese people to realize the Chinese dream. Before becoming the party’s supreme leader, Xi Jinping long served as a local party and government official. After working at the central government, he also presided over the daily work of the Central Secretariat, in charge of the party affairs, and was fully aware of the importance of party building. He attached importance to strengthening the construction of the party’s laws and regulations, and guided the formulation of many targeted party documents.
He repeatedly stressed the need to insist that the party must manage the party and strictly administer the party. On November 17th, during his first collective study at the 18th CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, he pointed out incisively, “‘The object must be rotted first, and then the insects are born.’ A lot of facts tell us: The problem of corruption is getting more and more intense, and ultimately it will surely be The party is dead! We must wake up!”
He vigorously advocated that investigation and research be “implemented in the entire process of decision-making,” stressing that it is necessary to persist from the masses to the masses, and to listen to the opinions of the masses, especially to the masses’ “most hopeful, most urgent, most worrying, most resentful” questions. It is even more important to grasp and hold the initiative to investigate.
Since 2008, the Chinese Communist Party has carried out an in-depth study and practice of the scientific concept of development in the whole party. Xi Jinping has served as the head of the Central Leading Group. He made several special trips to the local and central departments to inspect the work. He often chose some typical examples and provided specific opinions for specific guidance. The activities that lasted for the past two years have further made the scientific concept of development a consensus among the entire party and the country and become a powerful force for economic and social development.
Xi Jinping is the head of the report drafting group of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and the revision team of the Chinese Communist Party Constitution. After the two documents with far-reaching influence were submitted to the CCP for adoption at the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, they became the guiding documents for guiding China’s future development.
Xi Jinping has an indissoluble bond with the military. In his early years, he worked in the General Office of the Central Military Commission for 3 years, and formed profound feelings with the army; when he worked at a local level, he served as the first political commissar of the county People’s Armed Forces, the first secretary of the Party Committee of the municipal (district) army, and the province. The first political commissar of the anti-aircraft artillery reserve division, the first secretary of the party committee of the provincial military region, and the leader of the National Defense Mobilization Committee of the military area commanded the army and were very familiar with the situation of the military. He embraced the army and loved the army and actively helped the military solve many practical difficulties. After serving as the vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, he actively participated in the leadership of national defense and army building. At the First Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, he took over the post of Chairman of the Central Military Commission of the CPC.
Xi Jinping is the center of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao. The 17-year work experience in Fujian gave him an in-depth understanding of Taiwan and cross-strait relations. During his tenure, Xiamen established the first Taiwanese chamber of commerce in the Mainland, and Fuzhou established the first industrial village based on Taiwanese-funded enterprises. He has done a lot for Taiwan compatriots to solve problems. Many compatriots in Taiwan regard him as a good friend.
During his work in charge of Hong Kong and Macao, Xi Jinping met with people from all walks of life in Hong Kong and Macao to learn more about the public opinion of Hong Kong and Macao, actively promote economic cooperation between the Mainland and Hong Kong and Macao, and formulate and implement many important measures that are conducive to the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao. When Hong Kong and Macao were hit hard by the international financial crisis, he came to Hong Kong and Macao to meet with people from all walks of life. He pointed out that “as long as the spirit is not declining, the approach is always more difficult than it is”, and it will cheer on people from Hong Kong and Macao. In 2012, during discussions with the National People’s Congress of Hong Kong and Macau and the members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference during the “two sessions” in the country, he said that “brothers with one heart, their interest and financial resources” wrote a message that Hong Kong and Macao compatriots are united and collaborated to create a better future and have aroused positive reactions in the Hong Kong and Macau communities. .
In early 2008, Xi Jinping was appointed as the leader of the leading group for preparatory work for the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games. In order to establish a “special, high-level” event, he devoted great efforts and played an important role.
“Love the people as much as their own parents”
“Make sure to remember the ‘people’ in front of the government, “the masses have multiple minds in the cadre, cadres have multiple in the minds of the people,” “have to keep up with the hearts of the people, share the same difficulties with the people, and unite with the people.” … Xi Jinping expressed his love for the people in plain language at different times and on different occasions.
People in their hearts, always thinking of the people, talking to the people, fighting for the people – Xi Jinping’s people’s feelings, comes from his special experience of hardship.
Since 1962, the young Xi Jinping has been discriminated against because he was implicated as the father of the Chinese Communist Party father Xi Zhongxun. In the “Cultural Revolution,” he was criticized for hunger, strays, and even imprisoned.
At the beginning of 1969, Xi Jinping, who was under the age of 16, applied for a jump in the countryside in northern Shaanxi and came to the Liangjiahe Brigade of the Wen’anyu Commune in Yanchuan County. Due to the large number of fleas in the cave, he was bitten into blisters, and he had to sprinkle the pesticide powder on the mat to kill the lice.
In those years, Xi Jinping barely rested, farming, pulling coal, fighting dams, picking up feces, and doing all the work; what bitterness he had eaten. In the eyes of the villagers, Xi Jinping, who can pick one or two hundred pounds of wheat and walk 10 miles of mountain road for a long time without changing his shoulders, is a “good old man with hardship and hard work”. “He does not hesitate to work hard” and “has knowledge and ideas” has gradually won the trust of the villagers. He has not only joined the party and joined the party, but also served as secretary of the brigade party branch.
Although the life of the Yellow Earth is extremely difficult, it has also become the first stage for him to exercise his ability to grow and display his talents. In order to increase the area of farmland and winter slack season, he led the villagers to build silting dams and took the lead to stand barefoot on the ice to clear the dam foundation. He organized the village blacksmith to set up the iron industry club. The farm tools he built were self-sufficient and they could sell to nearby villages to increase their collective income. In the newspaper, he saw that Sichuan was pursuing biogas and ran for learning. The village built the first biogas digester in northern Shaanxi and led the villagers to build the first biogas gasification village in the province, solving the villagers’ difficulties in cooking and lighting. He assigned the white-faced dumplings allocated to the educated youth in the village to the villagers to eat and eat their nests. Beijing had rewarded an educated youth with a three-wheeled motorcycle with buckets. At that time, it was very rare in the area. He managed to change to hand-held tractors and grinders, field machines, water pumps and other agricultural tools for villagers. use.
Although academics were interrupted, Xi Jinping’s longing for knowledge was consistent and his self-education was unobtrusive. When he came to the countryside to visit Liangjiahe, he took a heavy box of books with him. Working during the day, reading books during work breaks, and reading on the high slopes of loess when she was eating sheep… At night, I read hard late at night under kerosene lamps. In the memory of the villagers, Xi Jinping often watched “a brick-thick book” while eating.
In 1975, Xi Jinping was recommended to study at Tsinghua University. On the day of leaving, the whole village lined up for a long queue for him. Many people cried unhappily and many villagers sent him away for a ride and another journey. The fellow villagers also gave him a picture framed with “The Good Secretary of the Poor Middle Farmers” and expressed his heartfelt praise for him.
After leaving northern Shaanxi, Xi Jinping always worried about the folks there. He helped power the village, repaired the bridge, and built a primary school. When he was appointed secretary of the Fuzhou Municipal Committee, he made a special trip back home from the family to the Liangjiahe to visit the family, brought a consolation to the poor old people, brought new schoolbags, stationery, and an alarm clock to remind students of school time. When he was the leader of the Fujian Province, he also sent farmers who had suffered serious illnesses to Fujian to seek medical treatment and paid for their own expenses.
Seven years of rural life and seven years of hardships and altogether, this period of time with the unsophisticated villagers of the Loess Plateau, together with the years of living and living with the same labor, not only made Xi Jinping and the local people form a deep friendship, but also made him We deeply understand what is the rural China, what is the joy and sorrow of the common people, and what is China’s basic national conditions. His deep feelings for the people and his role in the land under his feet are deeply integrated into his pursuit of life.
He once said candidly that during his lifetime, he helped him the most: “First, the revolutionary veteran, and my fellow villagers in northern Shaanxi.” When he was less than 16 years old when he came to Huang Land, he was once confused and paralyzed; at the age of 22, when he left the Yellow Land, he had a firm goal in life – “to do practical things for the people.”
After graduating from Tsinghua University in 1979, Xi Jinping worked in the General Office of the State Council and the General Office of the Central Military Commission. In 1982, when some young people began to study business and study abroad, he took the initiative to give up Beijing’s superior conditions and came to Zhengding County, Hebei. The county had a per capita income of less than 150 yuan in 1981. At the beginning, many people questioned the deputy secretary of the young county party committee who was fledgling. He is low-key and pragmatic. He lives in the office, eats in the big canteen, lining up with everyone, playing and chatting together under the tree, and always runs on a bicycle to run in the countryside. He goes deep into the people and pulls in and asks. Combine with everyone soon.
The masses have the heaviest weight in Xi Jinping’s mind. The grassroots is where he goes most.
In 1988, Xi Jinping served as the secretary of the prefectural committee in Ningde, Fujian. Ningde was one of the 18 impoverished regions in China at the time. In order to run through the countryside here, he often bumps on a bumpy mountain road for a few days in a jeep. He often does not rise upright, and sometimes he can’t get a car with a backache. In the remote mountainous areas that could not pass the road, he stepped on the slippery and dangerous mountain road. There was a township called Xia Dang. He walked from 7:30 in the morning to 12 o’clock in the morning before entering the village. He was warmly welcomed. The people in the township said he was “the biggest official here.” He promoted the transformation of several thousand villagers’ thatched cottages built for generations and built houses on the shore for ancestors who floated over the sea for generations, so that they could go to the sea to catch fish, live ashore, and live and work in peace.
In Ningde, he proposed the “four basics” requirements of the grassroots under the petitions and visits, the grassroots under the field office, the grassroots under the investigation and research, and the grassroots under the policy publicity. After coming to Fuzhou, he established a system of leading cadres to visit and receive the masses, and went through eight counties in five districts of Fuzhou. He once led the leaders of Fuzhou City and received more than 700 visiting people in two days. He quickly clashed and solved nearly 200 problems within a limited time. Later, he vigorously implemented this system in Zhejiang. He said: “The visit to receive the masses is a large examination room that tests the ability and level of leading cadres. The visiting people are the examiners, petition cases are exam questions, and the masses’ satisfaction is the answer.” In September 2003, he took the three main leaders of Zhejiang Province to visit the people in Pujiang County where there were many problems, where contradictions were concentrated, and where the opinions of the masses were relatively large. They explicitly requested advance notice and widely advertised them. Taking the Pujiang visit as the prelude, Zhejiang has launched a comprehensive visit to leading cadres. At all levels of the province, a long-term mechanism for leading petitions has been established.
On the eve of the Spring Festival in 2005, Xi Jinping came to the Zhejiang mine of Changguang Coal Mine. He went down to the bottom of a well near 1000 meters by a cage and bent down to walk more than 1,500 meters along a low and narrow inclined shaft. He came to the mining site to visit the underground and condolences Coal workers.
Xi Jinping attaches great importance to communicating with the masses through the news media. He had published 232 short articles on the column of “Zhejiang Daily” under the pseudonym “Zhexin”. He responded to questions of equality in real life by promptly answering some of the questions most concerned by the masses in real life. welcome. The masses said that this is “using big vernacular to talk about big problems.”
Xi Jinping treats people with tolerance and kindness. However, in the face of major issues related to the interests of the people, he insists on principles. He often said that he must take the Ukrainian hat as a civilian official and do not take the Ukrainian hat as his official. When Ningde inspected the cadres for illegal privately built residences, he pointedly criticized the cadres for some difficult emotions. The crimes began: Did we offend several thousand cadres or did we offend several million people? ! When he was in power in Zhejiang, he vigorously promoted the construction of cadres’ style of work. In one year, many cadres were disciplined because of inaction.
Xi Jinping is also a very humane leader. He did not forget Shi Yan. Every time he went to the New Year, he sent greetings and wishes to the teacher. He respected the elderly and loved the children. He used the first small sleeping car in the county to give it to the veteran cadres. He also set up the old cadre ward and activity room. When he was in Fuzhou, he had long assisted children with difficult families until they took up jobs.
After years of unremittingly cultivating the grassroots and practical approach to the people, Xi Jinping has won praise from the “civilian secretary” among the general public. He said: “For us communists, the common people are our food and food parents. We must love the people as much as we love our parents, and seek benefits for the common people and lead the people to a good life.”
“You don’t have to be in me”
After assuming the post of general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, Xi Jinping declared his determination for reform on many occasions and actively advocated emancipating the mind and innovating. In the eyes of the broad masses of the cadres and the masses, Xi Jinping is a leader with a spirit of reform that is emancipated, wide-eyed, and long-term.
While working in Xiamen, one of China’s special economic zones, he led the development of the Xiamen Economic and Social Development Strategy 1985-2000, which became an important basis for Xiamen’s subsequent development planning, implementation plans, and economic policy formulation. He served as the leader of the leading institutions such as the city’s financial system reform and special economic zone management and construction, researched and formulated a series of policy measures to promote the reform and opening up of special economic zones, actively promoted the implementation of the plan in Xiamen, and led and coordinated the resolution of major policy issues related to the separate planning. It has won many favorable conditions for the long-term development of Xiamen.
Xi Jinping believes that as leaders, we must not only focus on the current situation, but also focus on the long-term perspective, be willing to work hard, and focus on unfinished business. To establish a correct view of political achievements, there must be a realm of “work does not have to be in me”, “do not be greedy for a moment’s work, not a name for a moment,” “a blueprint to paint the end,” “a succession of work.”
In Hebei Province, it was learned that the television crew of the “Dream of Red Mansions” was looking for a location base. Xi Jinping saw potential business opportunities and took the initiative to negotiate with the public to convince relevant departments and counties to invest large sums of money in the construction base of Zhengding. “State government” and built a tourist attraction in Rongguo. In the year of completion, Rongguo’s tourism and ticket sales revenue reached more than RMB 10 million, not only returning investment, but also making profits. At this time, he has left Zhengding to Xiamen. The “Zhengding Tourism Model” he founded has given Zhengding a lot of benefits. After the “Dream of Red Mansions” was filmed, more than 170 movie and TV dramas were filmed here. At the peak, there were more than 1.3 million visits every year.
He proposed and presided over the formulation of the “Fuzhou 3820 Project” in 1992. He proposed different stages of economic and social development strategic goals, steps and measures in three, eight, and 20 years. The main targets set in that year were realized as early as a few years ago. A number of large projects such as TPV, Chunghwa Picture Tubes, Southeast Automotive, and Southern Aluminum Co., Ltd. were negotiated for introduction and construction. This has led to the development and cultivation of a number of special features. The industrial cluster has laid a solid foundation for the development of Fuzhou for the past 20 years and is still the leading company in Fuzhou.
When he was the governor of Fujian Province, Xi Jinping took the lead in carrying out special work on governance of “tabletop pollution” and the construction of “food relief project” in 2001, which was widely praised by ordinary people.
Xi Jinping took the lead in 1999 to establish “Digital Fujian”. In 2000, the Provincial People’s Congress formally made the relevant decisions. He served as the leader of the “Digital Fujian” Construction Leading Group. For more than a decade, this invisible “net” has gradually expanded in all directions, covering all aspects of residents’ production and life, public administration services, and urban management, and has quietly changed people’s way of life. By the year 2010, Fujian is the only province in the country that has achieved “one-card” hospital visits in the province.
In 2002, he affirmed and supported the forestry reform work in Wuping County. Fujian Province thus took the lead in carrying out the collective forest rights system with the main content of “clarifying property rights, liberalizing management rights, implementing disposal rights, and ensuring income rights”. The reforms later became the benchmark of the national forestry reform.
“It is necessary to have Jinshan Silver Mountain and Green Mountain.” Xi Jinping paid great attention to ecological protection and proposed that ecological advantages should be turned into economic advantages, so that the ecological nature can benefit future generations. In response to the serious problems of water and soil loss in Changting, Fujian, he took the lead in proposing a strategic concept for building an ecological province in 2002, and Fujian became the first batch of pilot provinces for ecological construction in the country. After more than 10 years of persistent efforts, Changting has put a million acres of barren hills on its green clothes, and Fujian has become the only province with a complete water, air, and ecological environment.
After working in Zhejiang, one of China’s most economically developed provinces, in 2002, after extensive and in-depth investigations and studies, Xi Jinping proposed and organized the “eight-eighth strategy” of “giving play to eight advantages and promoting eight important measures” in 2003. It laid a solid foundation for the long-term development of Zhejiang.
In response to the fundamental transformation of the economic growth mode and the strategic adjustment of the economic structure, he vividly proposed the “two birds” theory and asked Zhejiang to realize “the Phoenix Nirvana” in the “cage-for-cage change.” “Changing cages and changing birds” is to combine “going out” with “bringing in” and actively participate in regional cooperation and exchanges across the country, freeing up space for development, cultivating and introducing less food, producing more eggs, and flying higher. “June Bird.” “The Phoenix Nirvana” is the courage to use the “strong man’s broken wrist” to get rid of the reliance on extensive growth and realize the rebirth of industries and enterprises.
In 2004, he promoted Wuyi County in Zhejiang Province to set up the “Village Affairs Supervision Committee” outside the village branch committees and village committees, established a system of checks and balances at the village level, and achieved visible and tangible village affairs supervision. Village self-government is promoted in the process of joint construction and sharing. Grassroots democracy is no longer an abstract concept. It has become the normal form of rural life and integrates into the daily life of farmers. It has actively explored and successfully implemented the forms of democracy at the grassroots level. According to the people’s words, “This mechanism is very simple, that is, it allows us to look at the village cadres and prevent them from chaos.” In 2010, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress revised the Organic Law of the Villagers Committee and clearly stipulated that “villages should establish village affairs. Supervision committee or other forms of village supervision agency.”
He also proposed that Zhejiang should be developed in Zhejiang and that he should use the “three olds” economy as a metaphor, that is, the Zhejiang economy is an “elderly ancestor” economy passed down since Zhejiang, since ancient times, there has been a culture of both business and justice. Tradition is the forced “God of Heaven” economy. Because of the shortage of natural resources given by God, you are forced to learn to “throw out of nothing” and go out to “sacrifice the world”; it is a “people” economy created because the people in Zhejiang have a strong The desire for self-employment and a strong sense of commodity economy. At the same time, they also emphasized that Zhejiang should be developed to develop Zhejiang, borrowing ships to go by sea, climbing up stairs, taking the initiative to join Shanghai, and strengthen cooperation with neighboring provinces and cities such as Jiangsu, complement each other, and develop together. The implementation of these measures not only directly promoted the economic and social development of Zhejiang, but also promoted the integration process of the entire Yangtze River Delta.
In 2007, Xi Jinping was in charge of international metropolis Shanghai. After coming to Shanghai, he continued to advocate the integration of the Yangtze River Delta. In planning for the future development of Shanghai, he proposed that Shanghai’s development will never be in itself, nor will it be able to benefit from it alone. It must be placed in the overall planning of the development of the Yangtze River Delta region in order to think and plan. Shanghai must do its part. The “leading” of the Yangtze River Delta.
In his “Shanghai City Spirit” of “Hai Na Bai Chuan, Pursuit of Excellence”, he added the words “enlightened wisdom and gracious atmosphere”. The Shanghai media commented that this not only culminated in the hustle and blood of Shanghai, but also expanded the “Shanghai urban spirit” and was a thoughtful, higher-level gesture of Shanghai’s “outside world” expression. Many cadres and people from other places also sighed, “Shanghai has changed.”
“I’m in the forefront of doing things.”
“Avoid talking about mistakes and doing things in a pragmatic manner.” Just 15 days after he took office as General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, Xi Jinping expressed his determination to honestly support the Chinese dream when he visited the “Revival Road” exhibition.
In order to better implement the spirit of practical work, he presided over the meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and agreed to improve the style of work and close contact with the people. He promised to go to the masses, make light buses, open short meetings, speak short words, and reduce traffic restrictions. It has achieved great acclaim both at home and abroad.
“Only by doing things in order to stay at the forefront.” Xi Jinping has consistently emphasized that it is really good at doing things. He called for seizing the issues that the people are most concerned about, and doing a solid job in a few practical matters. He always believed that if he does not implement it, then a beautiful blueprint is also a castle in the air.
In Hebei’s positive time, Xi Jinping proposed that to change the backwardness of poverty, it is very important to really read the “talent of talent.” For this purpose, he personally visited the “Cherima” on many occasions and personally wrote and drafted the “National Recruitment Plan”.
At the beginning of 1983, during the winter and the lunar months, Xi Jinping and Cheng Baohuai, then the county governor, made a special trip to Shijiazhuang City to seek out a scientific research worker who researched and developed medical cosmetics. Because they did not know the specific address of the other party, they asked everything from house to house. At ten o’clock in the evening, they had not found anything. Xi Jinping pulled the door and shouted the other person’s name along the street to find people. They always talked about the early morning, the other party promised on the spot, and quickly brought the scientific research project to settle down. It will bring more than 300,000 yuan of profit to Zhengding for one year.
In the same year, Xi Jinping presided over the formulation and release of the “nine regulations” that broke traditional beliefs and recruiting people. He also reported that “Hebei Daily” reported on the headline with the theme of “Zhengding County Opens Doors for People with Aspirations”. For a moment caused a stir in the province. He also sent more than 100 “Honor Letters” to well-known experts and scholars across the country and some colleges and universities and scientific research institutes. He also invited dozens of experts to visit. In less than two years, Zhengding has introduced 683 talents of various types and hired famous Chinese mathematician Hua Luogeng and other 53 national experts as county economic advisors.
To work hard, we must persist in seeking truth from facts. At the time of normal timing, Xi Jinping and Lv Yulan, deputy secretary of the county party committee under pressure, truthfully reflected the problem of over-burdened food purchases, and obtained 28 million kilograms of annual grain purchases, enabling Zhengding to reduce its burden and remove Bags, light forward.
After arriving in Ningde, Fujian, Xi Jinping insisted that everything should be based on reality and that many practical issues should be solved according to local conditions. In response to the unique advantage of the “large yellow croaker’s hometown” (large yellow croakers lay eggs in Ningde), he proposed to make full use of it and concentrate resources on scientific research to solve the problem that large yellow croaker cannot be farmed.

On the one hand, he began to grasp typical models from the grassroots level. He chose Xiagon Village, Fengshuling Town, Pan’an County, a less-developed area in southwestern Zhejiang Province, as his contact point, and in less than two years he went to the lower village of Jiangcun. He called him “know the provincial party committee’s decision.

He promoted the construction of the Hangzhou Bay Bridge, the longest cross-sea bridge in the world at that time. This is a milestone in the history of China’s cross-sea bridge construction. It is also known as the “economic bridge” and “flying bridge” connecting the Yangtze River Delta. In 2006, Ningbo-Zhoushan Port achieved a total cargo throughput of 420 million tons, ranking the second in the country and the top three in the world.
In 2003, Xi Jinping proposed to “guide the construction of new rural communities with the concept of urban community construction, do a good job of building a comprehensive group of well-off demonstration villages and towns,” and “make the gap between the quality of life in rural areas and cities gradually narrow, so that everyone can share modern civilization. “. Zhejiang thus initiated the work of “Thousands of Villages Demonstration and Wancun Remediation” in an all-round way.

The study family has a family style that is strict with teaching and diligent. Xi Zhongxun believed that as a party’s senior cadre, correcting the style of the party must first start with oneself and start with his own family members. Under the strict requirements of his parents, Xi Jinping lived a simple life. He used to wear clothes and shoes worn by his sisters when he was little.

Xi Jinping’s wife, Peng Liyuan, is a famous singer and opera performing artist known to Chinese people.

In the earthquake-stricken area in Wenchuan, in Xiaotangshan in Beijing to fight SARS and in the flood-fighting line in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province, she also left her with her condolences.

She is the Goodwill Ambassador for the fight against tuberculosis and AIDS hired by the World Health Organization, China’s “Protection for HIV Prevention”, “Image Ambassador for Tobacco Control”, and the “Love Ambassador for Tomorrow” to prevent juvenile delinquency. Not long ago, she had just participated in the 2012 World AIDS Day publicity campaign in Beijing, and AIDS orphans graciously called her “Mom Peng.”
Xi Jinping and Peng Liyuan fell in love at first sight in 1986. After marriage, they have their own careers and often cannot be together, but they have always understood each other, supported each other, and tried their best to care for each other. Peng Liyuan, a military singer, often accepts assignments and rushes to the field to perform performances. Many of them are in hard-to-reach areas and sometimes go for two or three months. Xi Jinping is always very concerned. As long as the conditions permit, no matter how late, Xi Jinping needs to call his wife at least once a day and rest assured that they can rest after mutual peace. This has been the case for decades. On New Year’s Eve, Peng Liyuan will always participate in the Spring Festival Gala performed by CCTV. When Xi Jinping works in the field, he will always watch dumplings while returning to Beijing for the Chinese New Year. He will only eat dumplings when she returns home. Peng Liyuan said that Xi Jinping is a “competent husband” and a “competent father.” He is also very concerned about him. When she had the opportunity to be reunited with her husband, she would carry on the daily necessities and change his mind to make delicious meals for him.
In Peng Liyuan’s eyes, her husband is both a different person and an ordinary person. He likes to eat Shaanxi and Shandong home cooking, and friends will drink while enjoying the party. He enjoys swimming, hiking, watching basketball, football, boxing and other games. Sometimes he watches TV broadcasts late at night.
