(April 26, 2016)

Hello everyone! My investigation in Anhui this time happened to be on the eve of the May 1st International Labor Day and May 4th Youth Day. Today, we are holding a forum here to invite some intellectuals, model workers, and youth representatives to symposium. The main purpose is to listen to everyone’s opinions and suggestions face to face. We call on the majority of intellectuals, the working masses, and the young people to jointly build a comprehensive Fighting for a well-to-do society and commemorating the upcoming May 1st International Labor Day and May 4 Youth Day.

First of all, on behalf of the Party Central Committee, I would like to extend my sincere greetings and holiday congratulations to all of you present here and through you to the nation’s vast number of intellectuals, the broad masses of working people, and the broad masses of young people!

Just now, the speeches of several comrades combined their own studies and work, talked about feelings, talked about feelings, and offered suggestions. They were lively, simple, and insightful. They were very inspired and inspired after hearing.

At this forum today, intellectuals, model workers, and youth representatives are invited. We have considered this arrangement. China is a socialist country under the people’s democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants. Intellectuals are part of the working class. The working people are the masters of the country. Young people are the successors of the socialist cause with Chinese characteristics and are the future of the country and the hope of the nation. We must build a well-to-do society in an all-round way, and then build a prosperous, strong, democratic, civilized and harmonious modern socialist country. To achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, we must rely on knowledge, must rely on labor, and must rely on the broad masses of young people. This is where the power of our country and nation develops and the strength of our business success.

Since the party’s 18th National Congress, I have participated in related activities and made some remarks on the “May 1st” International Labour Day and the “May 4th” Youth Day each year. Working on intellectuals, I have also spoken on various occasions. The core meaning of my related speeches is: After the modern period, especially since the birth of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese people have continued to struggle and the Chinese nation’s great rejuvenation has shown a bright future. Now we are closer to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history. Goals are more confident and capable of achieving this goal than at any time in history. At the same time, there is still a long way to go to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The road ahead is not smooth. We must strengthen the path of self-confidence, theoretical self-confidence, and institutional self-confidence in the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and stand ready to respond to various difficulties and challenges no matter what We can’t stop the pace of progress; the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is a very great and arduous undertaking. It requires the entire Chinese nation to unite and unite all the forces and mobilize all positive forces for the common cause. The goal is to make unremitting efforts.

We are in the final stage of achieving the first one-hundred-year goal of the “two hundred-year” struggle goal and building a well-to-do society in an all-round way. The Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee and the Outline of the 13th Five-Year Plan described the grand blueprint for building a well-to-do society. Now, the task before us is to turn beautiful blueprints into reality. The broad masses of intellectuals, the broad masses of working people, and the broad masses of young people must keep up with the times, shoulder the mission, and forge ahead with determination, link their own future fate with the future fate of the country and the nation, and strive to contribute wisdom and strength to the building of a well-to-do society.

Here, I will give some opinions on the role of the masses of intellectuals, the working masses, and the young people in the new situation.

To build a well-to-do society in an all-round way, the vast majority of Chinese intellectuals can provide very important talent support, intellectual support and innovation support. We hope that the broad masses of intellectuals in our country will give full play to their advantages, be brave in acting, be bold in innovation, serve the society, serve the people, and make new, more prominent contributions.

Intellectuals, as the name suggests, are people with a high level of education and rich knowledge. Many of them are experts in the fields of expertise, specialization, and expertise in certain fields. Intellectuals have a greater grasp of knowledge and technology, have a deeper understanding of nature and society, and can play a very important role in promoting economic and social development and promoting the progress of social civilization. In the course of more than 90 years of revolution, construction, and reform led by our Party, the majority of intellectuals have built up achievements in the history of the party and the people.

Accompanied by the continuous development of the party and the people’s cause, the ranks of our intellectuals have grown and spread throughout the society. In the process of building a well-to-do society in an all-round way, the majority of intellectuals must shoulder their own missions, stand on their posts, continue to learn, apply what they have learned, and do their jobs well. As a teacher, we must be concentrating and stand by the three-foot platform. “Spring silkworms die to death, and wax torches turn to tears.” To do research, you must be willing to be lonely, or beheaded by the poor, or take root in the lab. “Stools must sit ten years cold and the article does not say anything empty.” To engage in creation, we must adhere to the people-centered creative thinking, go deep into practice, go deep into the masses, go deep into life, and strive to create excellent masterpieces that the masses of the people love. An intellectual, no matter in which industry, what occupation, or how high academic record, professional title, and status, only by upholding the spirit of seeking truth and being pragmatic, can we explore more and more unknowns, and gain more truths, and we can make more for society. Big contribution.

Yong Li’s efforts to lead and innovate are qualities that the majority of intellectuals should have. In the face of increasingly fierce international competition, we must place innovation at the heart of the country’s overall development and continue to push forward innovations in such areas as theoretical innovation, institutional innovation, technological innovation, and cultural innovation. The majority of intellectuals must strengthen their sense of innovation, dare to take the road that no one has before, and dare to seize the domestic and international innovation commanding heights. We must grasp the characteristics of innovation and follow the rules of innovation. We must not only think about it out of nothing, and strive to pursue original innovation. We must also be eclectic and enterprising. We are good at integrating innovation and introducing new products to absorb and innovate. To carry out strategic innovations and tackle real-world needs, we must promptly carry out emergency innovations. We must respect individual creativity, play a role of a leading role, and focus on collective research to bring into play cooperative advantages. We must persist in facing the new needs of the masses for the development of the main battlefield of economic and social development and allow more innovative achievements to benefit society and the people.

It is the sincere feelings of the broad masses of intellectuals that serve the public and take morals. The intellectuals of our country have always had strong feelings of home and country and have a strong sense of social responsibility. “Self-fitting and governing the country and pacifying the world”, “Building up the mind for the world, building a life for the people, making a study for the saints, and making peace for all ages”, “the worry and worry of the world, and the joy of the world”, these thoughts It is respected by generations of intellectuals. Now, the party and the people need more intellectuals to carry forward such a spirit of responsibility. This is a heavy responsibility. The majority of intellectuals must adhere to the supremacy of the country, the supremacy of the nation, and the supremacy of the people. They always have the greatest interest in the overall situation and their hearts. We must adhere to the right path, pursue the truth, base ourselves on China’s national conditions, and look outwards at the world. It is necessary to seek truth from facts, be objective and fair, emphasize the facts, look at the essence, and formulate truth, and provide more contributions to the development of the party and the people’s cause. Under no circumstances can we do anything that undermines the national dignity of the nation and undermines the conscience of intellectuals.

The work of intellectuals is a very important task for the party. Party committees and governments at all levels must earnestly respect knowledge, respect talents, fully trust intellectuals, and strive to create better conditions for the work of the intellectuals in learning and living. We must deepen the reform of the science, technology, education, and culture systems, deepen the reform of the talent development system, accelerate the formation of institutional mechanisms that are conducive to the creation of intellectuals’ officers, and let the masses of intellectuals fully unleash talent and energy. We must follow the work characteristics and laws of intellectuals, reduce the interference with intellectual creative work, and allow them to concentrate more on their own work. We must be good at using communication, negotiation, and heart-to-heart methods to do a good job of intellectuals’ ideological work, and learn more about the difficulties in their work, study, and life. We must discuss more issues with them and encourage them to achieve more achievements and progress.

Intellectuals are ideological, assertive, and responsible. They are willing to express their opinions on some issues. Party committees and governments at all levels and leading cadres at all levels must actively solicit their opinions and suggestions on relevant issues in work and decision-making, and they are welcome to criticize them. For the opinions and criticisms from intellectuals, as long as the starting point is good, we must warmly welcome them, and we must actively adopt them. Even if some opinions and criticisms are biased or even incorrect, they must be more tolerant and more tolerant, insisting on not taking care of the blind, not deducting the hat, and not playing the stick. People are not immortals. Raising opinions and criticizing cannot be 100% correct. If some people’s opinions and criticisms are inappropriate or wrong, they must carry out adequate reasoning work, guide them to correct knowledge and change their viewpoints, instead of suddenly seeing people dead, let alone avoid them and exclude them. Leading cadres at all levels should be good at dealing with intellectuals and be intellectuals’ close friends and friends.

To build a well-off society in an all-round way, China’s billions of working people are the main force. We hope that the broad masses of working people in our country will follow the example of model workers, love and respect their jobs, work hard, forge ahead and be creative, and continue to compose songs for workers in the new era.

“Life is diligent, and diligence is not.” Happiness does not come from heaven, and good life depends on labor. The goal of building a well-to-do society in an all-round way is to provide a bright future for the broad masses of the working people; the historic task of building a well-to-do society in an all-round way provides the broad working people with a glorious mission; the great journey of building a well-to-do society in an all-round way provides the general working people with a Valuable opportunities. Faced with such an era when thousands of sails compete with one another, one hundred talents compete, and one has the opportunity to do business and become capable, the vast number of working people must cherish and increase their efforts.

Model workers are outstanding representatives of the working masses and are the most beautiful workers. The exemplary worker spirit of “love, dedication, striving for excellence, arduous struggle, courage to innovate, indifference to fame and fortune, and willingness to dedicate” is a vivid manifestation of the spirit of the great era. We must vigorously publicize the advanced deeds of the model workers throughout the society and call on the whole society to learn from them and pay tribute to them. It is necessary to provide all-round support for the model workers to better display their talents and show their moral character, so that their labor skills, innovative methods, and management experience can be widely disseminated, and the exemplary driving role can be fully utilized. Models of labor must cherish honor, be modest and prudent, continue to work hard, and continue to create greater achievements for the party and the people at a new starting point.

Quality is the foundation for the foundation and skills are the foundation of the foundation. The broad masses of working people must be diligent in learning, learn about culture, study science, learn skills, and learn all aspects of knowledge, constantly improve their overall quality, and practice hard skills. We must base ourselves on postal studies, learn from our masters, learn from our colleagues, learn from books, and learn from practice. Three hundred and sixty lines, the top line. Any worker, no matter what the technical content of his work, as long as diligent in learning, good at practice, work hard, keep improving, will be able to create a flash of life.

Human beings are created by labor, and society is created by labor. There is no distinction between high and low labor, and any profession is glorious. The majority of the working masses must be honest and work based on their own positions. No matter what kind of work you do, you must do it, love one line, drill one line. In the factory workshop, we must promote “artisan spirit” and carefully polish each component to produce high-quality products. In the field, we must meticulously cultivate and strive to win a good harvest. Stores in the mall must laugh at the world and provide good services to children and children. As long as practical work and hard work are performed, extraordinary performance can be achieved in ordinary jobs.

The dream belongs to everyone, and the majority of working people must dare to think and dare to pursue their dreams. After all, the Chinese dream of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation depends on the hard work of people from all walks of life. Nowadays, there is a lot of room for the party and the state’s business. As long as there are ambitions and ambitions, ordinary workers can also demonstrate their values ​​in a broad stage. Many of the exemplary and moving deeds of labor models have fully demonstrated this point. We must vigorously promote the spirit of labor in the entire society, advocate the realization of life’s dreams through honest labor, change our own destiny, and oppose all the ideas of freework, opportunism, and pleasure.

Party committees and governments at all levels must care for and care for the broad masses of working people, effectively implement relevant party and state policies and measures, continue to promote reforms and innovations in related fields, resolutely eliminate the institutional mechanisms and policy barriers that restrict the employment of large numbers of laborers, and constantly improve employment and entrepreneurship. Support policies, reduce employment and entrepreneurship costs, and support the broad masses of the working people to actively employ and boldly start businesses. It is necessary to earnestly safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the broad masses of working people, help the majority of the working masses solve problems, and actively build harmonious labor relations.

At present, China’s economic development has entered a new normal, the mode of economic development is undergoing a profound transformation, and the economic structure is undergoing profound adjustments. This has temporarily affected the employment of some working people. Party committees and governments at all levels must implement supporting policies such as the reemployment of unemployed people and livelihood guarantees, financial special awards, etc., implement and improve aid measures, create more jobs, encourage enterprises to absorb, public welfare placement, social policy support And other channels to help people in difficulties in employment, to achieve zero-employment family dynamics “clear” to ensure that placement and shunting, social harmony and stability.

In order to build a well-to-do society in an all-round way, the broad masses of young people are vital forces and commandos. We hope that the broad masses of young people in our country will fully display their ambitions and passions. They will have an ideal, temper their character, work down-to-earth and work hard, and constantly write chapters devoted to youth.

The Chinese dream of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation requires generations of aspiring young people to continue fighting. Young people are full of vigor and vitality and are the most dynamic and creative group in society. The party and the people have high hopes for the majority of young people.

The majority of young people should consciously practice the core values ​​of socialism and continue to develop noble qualities. We must take the country’s prosperity and people’s well-being as our own responsibility, be mindful of ideals, be ambitious, and devote ourselves to the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics and fight for it for life. We must strengthen ideological and moral cultivation, consciously promote the spirit of patriotism and collectivism, and consciously abide by social morality, professional ethics, and family virtues. We must persist in arduous struggles, not covetousness and ease, and not afraid of difficulties. We must not blame people and others, and rely on diligence and sweat to open up life and career prospects. “It seems that ordinary people are the most bizarre and they are as easy as they are difficult.” The young people have a long road of life. On the way forward, there are also mountains in Pingchuan, lazy rivers and rapids. There are also storms in Liri, there are joys and sadness. There is sunshine in the heart and strength in the feet. In order to persevere in ideals and not slack off, we can create a life worthy of the times.

“Talents are high and knowledge is learned.” Dreams start with learning, and careers rely on skills. The majority of young people should consciously strengthen their studies and continuously enhance their skills. The golden age of life is young. The basics of youth knowledge are not solid enough to influence or even determine one’s own life. The vast majority of young people must be hungry and tireless to learn. They should not only read more books with words, but also read books without words, and should pay attention to learning life experiences and social knowledge. “The paper has come to a final disposition, and it is important to know that this matter must be done.” All knowledge must be transformed into competence and must be put into practice. We must adhere to the unity of knowledge and action, and pay attention to the practice of realizing high school knowledge, understanding the truth, and strengthening the training and growth skills.

The majority of young people must consciously devote their youth to making more contributions to building a well-to-do society. Youth time is very valuable. It should be used to create new business people, work hard, and leave precious memories for the future. The majority of rural youth should display a modern image of modern farmers in the development of modern agriculture and the construction of a new socialist countryside. The majority of corporate youth should create more wealth by actively participating in production labor, product research and development, and management innovation. Learned and actively conquered the difficult issues in more innovative results, the vast majority of organs and institutions of the youth to improve the service level for the community, for the people to make contributions.

The vast majority of young people must maintain the momentum of the newborn calf who is not afraid of the tiger, and do not understand schooling. They will not practice, and they will work hard to create conditions without conditions. “The trend of the people is endless, and the distance from the sea to the poor can’t be limited.” To try to do love, you must dare to do it, work hard from scratch, grow small, and turn the ideal into reality. We must dare to be pioneers, not be guests, be spectators, and let innovation become the driving force for the voyage of youth. Let entrepreneurship become the energy of youthful fighting, and let youthful age shine in the dedication for the country and the people.

Party committees and governments at all levels must fully trust the youth, passionately care for the youth, strictly request the youth, and actively guide the youth in order to do a good job in providing services for the broad masses of young people to grow into talents, innovate and create, and build meritorious service. Leading cadres at all levels must be good friends of young friends and enthusiastic people in youth work.

I will talk about these. Finally, I wish all of you a smooth, healthy and happy family and achieve greater success in your future work!

VIII. Leading Development with New Development Concept

——Development ideas on establishing innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing

The concept is the precursor to action. Certain development practices are guided by certain development concepts. Whether or not the development concept is correct is fundamentally determining the success of development and even success or failure. Faced with the complicated domestic and international situation in the phase of completion of a well-to-do society, and in the face of current new opportunities and new challenges in economic and social development, the Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee adhered to the people-centered development philosophy and clearly proposed Innovation, coordination, green, open and shared development concepts. The new development concept is in line with China’s national conditions, conforms to the requirements of the times, and has new breakthroughs in theory and practice. It has important guiding significance for solving development problems, enhancing development momentum, and accumulating development advantages.

1. Adhere to people-centered development ideas

To establish a new development concept, it is first necessary to solve why people and who enjoy this fundamental issue. The Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee put forward the idea of ​​development centered on the people for the first time, reflecting the inherent requirements of adhering to the people’s dominant status, highlighting the people’s supreme value orientation, and establishing the basic principles that must always be adhered to in the new development concept. We must focus on the implementation of the people-centered development concept and regard the realization of the people’s well-being as the purpose and end of development, so that development can be achieved for the people, development depends on the people, and development results are shared by the people.

The people-centered development concept reflects the fundamental purpose of our party’s wholehearted service to the people. “Operating the country is state-owned, and the people are the best.” Our party is from the people, serves the people, and the Party must do everything in its fundamental interests as the highest standard. The people are the main body of development and the biggest beneficiary of development. To adhere to people-centered development thinking, we must regard the promotion of people’s well-being and the promotion of people’s all-round development as the starting point and goal of development, develop people’s democracy, safeguard social fairness and justice, and guarantee people’s equal participation and equal development rights.

The people-centered development concept embodies the materialist conception of history as the fundamental force for the development of the people. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: “The people are the motive force for creating history. The communists at all times should not forget this basic principle of historical materialism.” Only by upholding this basic principle can we grasp the basic laws of history; only according to historical laws Acting in order to be invincible. To adhere to people-centered development thinking, we must adhere to the people’s dominant status and fully respect the people’s expressed wishes, experiences, rights, and roles they play. Respecting the people’s pioneering spirit, they consciously worship the people as teachers, ask the able ones for advice, ask the wise for advice, and draw endless wisdom and strength from the masses. We must rely on the people, extensively mobilize and organize the people to join in the great cause of the party leadership.

The people-centered development concept embodies the goal of gradually achieving common prosperity. Common prosperity is a basic goal of Marxism and a basic ideal of our people since ancient times. According to the Marx and Engels ideas, the communist society will completely eliminate the oppositions and differences between classes, between urban and rural areas, between mental and physical labor, and implement all the means and distribution according to needs to truly achieve social sharing and realize each Personal freedom and comprehensive development. It takes a long historical process to achieve this goal. Our country is in and will be in the primary stage of socialism for a long time. We cannot do things beyond the stage, but it does not mean that we should do nothing to gradually achieve common prosperity. We must do what we can do based on existing conditions. Step by step to implement the people-centered development, accumulate small wins for victory, and continue to advance towards the goal of common prosperity for all people.

The idea of ​​people-centered development cannot stop at the word of mouth or stop at the ideological link, but must be reflected in all aspects of economic and social development. We must follow the people’s yearning for a better life, and constantly realize, safeguard, and develop the fundamental interests of the greatest number of people. Through deepening reforms and innovation-driven efforts to improve the quality and efficiency of economic development, we will produce more and better physical and spiritual products and continue to satisfy the people’s ever-increasing material and cultural needs. It provides various favorable conditions for creating a stage and an environment for workers, entrepreneurs, innovative talents and cadres at all levels in all fields. Adhere to the basic socialist economic system and distribution system, adjust the pattern of income distribution, improve the redistribution adjustment mechanism with taxation, social security, and transfer payments as the main means, maintain social fairness and justice, solve the income gap problem, and make more achievements in development. More fair benefits to all people.

2. A profound transformation that has a bearing on China’s overall development

Development is a process of constant change. The development environment will not be static, the conditions for development will not be changed, and the concept of development will naturally not change. The concept of innovation, coordination, green, openness, and shared development is not derived from nothing. It is formed on the basis of a profound summary of domestic and international development experiences and lessons, as well as an analysis of the general trend of development at home and abroad. It is also a prominent contradiction and problem in the development of our country. The proposal has focused on reflecting our party’s new understanding of the law of development in our country. The new development concept has profoundly revealed the only way to achieve higher quality, more efficient, more equitable, and more sustainable development. It is a profound change that has a bearing on China’s overall development.

The new development concept is a radical solution to the situation in which China’s economic development has entered a new normal and the global economic recovery has been sluggish. At present, the world economy has undergone some new changes in the major adjustments and major changes. The original growth model has been difficult to sustain, and technological innovation has given birth to new breakthroughs. New changes have taken place in China’s development environment, conditions, tasks, requirements, etc. China’s development is still in an important period of strategic opportunities. However, the connotation of the strategic opportunity period has undergone profound changes, and economic development has entered a new normal, shifting the way and adjusting the structure. The requirements are increasingly urgent. Faced with such new changes and new situations, we must persist in the extensive development model and simply pursue the growth rate. Obviously, this will not work, and we must establish new development concepts to guide and promote China’s economic development and create a new phase of economic development.

The new development concept is a strategic guideline proposed for the outstanding issues and challenges facing China’s current development. Innovation is focused on solving the problem of development momentum. Under the situation of increasingly fierce international development competition and China’s development momentum, only by placing innovation on the basis of innovation and forming an institutional framework for promoting innovation can we create more innovation-driven and more Leading development that gives full play to first-mover advantage. Coordination, focusing on solving the problem of unbalanced development, can be achieved only by adhering to regional coordination, integration of urban and rural areas, equal emphasis on material and cultural and spiritual civilization, and integration of economic construction with national defense, so as to broaden the space for development in the course of coordinated development and enhance the potential for development in strengthening weak areas. Green is focused on solving the problem of harmony between man and nature. Only by adhering to green rich countries and green people, providing people with more quality ecological products and promoting the formation of green development methods and lifestyles, can we promote the prosperity of the people, the country’s prosperity and prosperity, and the beauty of China. . Openness, and focus on solving the linkage problem of internal and external development. Only by enriching the connotation of opening to the outside world, increasing the level of opening to the outside world, and jointly promoting strategic mutual trust, economic and trade cooperation, and humanities exchanges, can we open up new prospects for opening up to the outside world and form a deep and mutually beneficial pattern of cooperation. Sharing, focusing on solving social fairness and justice issues, can only truly reflect the superiority of the socialist system by allowing the broad masses of the people to share the fruits of reform and development.

The new development concept reflects the deepening of our party’s understanding of the laws of economic and social development and is another major innovation in China’s development theory. Over the past 30 years of reform and opening up, our party has always put forward appropriate development concepts and strategies according to changes in the situation and tasks, and has led and guided development practices. From economic development as the center, development is the absolute principle, and development is the primary task for the party to govern and rejuvenate the country, to persist in scientific development, to achieve overall coordinated and sustainable development, to adhere to the overall layout of the five in one, and to develop concepts and development ideas for each time. Innovation and improvement have both promoted a new leap in development. Since the party’s 18th National Congress, the party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the general secretary has focused on new development practices and further promoted the party’s theoretical innovation. It has formed a series of new ideas and new ideas in terms of development goals, development momentum, development layout, and development guarantees. A new strategy for thinking. The new development concept embodies a profound insight into the basic features of the new stage of development. It embodies a scientific understanding of the essential requirements and direction of socialism and marks our party’s understanding of the law of economic and social development has reached a new height. Economic and social development must adhere to long-term important compliance.

3. Accurately grasp the scientific connotation of the new development concept

The concept of innovation, coordination, green, openness, and shared development is to guide the overall situation, management, and long-term management. It is strategic, programmatic, and guiding. The new concept of development indicates the concept of development, direction of development, and focus of development in the “13th Five-Year Plan” and even longer period of time. We must thoroughly understand and accurately grasp its scientific connotations and practical requirements.

Innovation is the primary driving force for development. Development dynamics determine the speed, effectiveness, and sustainability of development. For a country with such a large amount of economies, if the problem of power is not solved well, it is difficult to achieve sustained and healthy economic development and “two doublings”. Adhering to innovation and development is a conclusion drawn from the analysis of the development of the world since modern times, especially the successful practice of summing up China’s reform and opening up. It is a fundamental policy for responding to changes in the environment, enhancing the driving force for development, grasping the initiative in development, and better guiding the new normal. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that by seizing the innovation, he seized the “hero nose” that affects the overall economic and social development. To establish the concept of innovation and development, we must place innovation at the heart of the country’s overall development and continue to promote innovation in all aspects such as theoretical innovation, institutional innovation, scientific and technological innovation, and cultural innovation, so that innovation can permeate all the work of the party and the country, and innovate in society as a whole. It is a common practice.

Coordination is an inherent requirement for sustained and healthy development. In the new situation, coordinated development has some new features. For example, coordination is both a means of development and a development goal. At the same time, it is also a criterion and measure for evaluating development. Coordination is the unification of the development of the two-point theory and the key theory. It is necessary to make efforts to solve problems and make up for shortcomings, and also consider consolidating and building original advantages. Only by complementing each other and complementing each other can we achieve high-level development. Coordination is the unification of development balance and imbalance. Coordinating development is not about equalitarianism, but more emphasis is placed on fair development opportunities and more emphasis on balanced resource allocation; coordination is the development of short-term and The unification of potential, coordinated development is to find out shortcomings, make more efforts to fill short boards, and make use of short boards to tap potentials for development and enhance development stamina. To establish the concept of coordinated development, we must firmly grasp the overall layout of the socialist cause with Chinese characteristics, correctly handle the major relationships under development, focus on promoting the coordinated development of urban and rural areas, promote the coordinated economic and social development, and promote new-type industrialization, informatization, urbanization, and agriculture. With the simultaneous development of modernization, the country’s hard power has been strengthened while the country’s soft power has been enhanced, and the overall development has been continuously enhanced.

Green is an essential condition for sustainable development and an important embodiment of the people’s pursuit of a better life. Green development means solving the problem of the harmonious coexistence between man and nature. Human development activities must respect nature, conform to nature, and protect nature. Otherwise, they will suffer revenge from nature. No one can resist this rule. Humans are born of nature, and humans and nature are a symbiotic relationship. The harm to nature will eventually hurt humanity itself. Only by respecting the laws of nature can we effectively prevent detours in the development and use of nature. To establish the concept of green development, we must adhere to the basic national policy of resource conservation and environmental protection, adhere to sustainable development, firmly follow the path of civilized development with a prosperous production, a prosperous life, and a sound ecology, and accelerate the building of a resource-conserving, environment-friendly society and people Harmony with nature, develop a new pattern of modernization, promote the construction of beautiful China, and make new contributions to global ecological security.

Openness is the only way for the country’s prosperity and development. Practice tells us that in order to grow stronger, we must actively adapt to the trend of economic globalization, persist in opening up to the outside world, and make full use of advanced scientific and technological achievements and beneficial management experience created by human society. We must see that the current international and domestic situation facing open development is very different from the past. In general, there are more favorable factors, but we also face a deeper level of risk challenges: the international forces are undergoing unprecedented positive changes, but they are more just and reasonable. The formation of the international political and economic order still has a long way to go; the world economy is gradually emerging from the shadow of the international financial crisis, but it has yet to find a new engine for full recovery; China’s weight in the world economy and global governance has risen rapidly, but the problem of large but not strong economies remains. Prominently, China’s economic strength has yet to make strenuous efforts to transform it into international institutional power; China’s opening to the outside world has entered a more balanced phase of introduction and outreach, but the systems and strengths that support high levels of openness and large-scale outflows are still weak. To establish the concept of openness and development, we must follow the deep integration of China’s economy into the world economy, pursue a mutually beneficial and win-win opening strategy, adhere to the coordination of internal and external needs, import and export balance, import and export, attract investment, and attract talents. The higher-level open economy actively participates in the global economic governance and public goods supply, improves China’s institutional discourse power in global economic governance, and builds a wide range of interests.

Sharing is the essential requirement of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Sharing the concept of development, its connotation mainly has four aspects. The first is shared by the entire people, that is, shared development is enjoyed by everyone, and each has its own place. It is not shared by a few people and shared by some people. The second is to share in all aspects, that is, to share development, we must share the achievements of national economic, political, cultural, social, and ecological civilization in all aspects, and fully protect the legitimate rights and interests of the people in all aspects. The third is co-construction and sharing, that is, only shared construction can be shared, and the process of co-construction is also a shared process. The fourth is gradual sharing, that is, shared development must have a process from low-level to high-level, from unbalanced to balanced. Even if it reaches a high level, there will be differences. To establish the concept of shared development, we must adhere to development for the people, development depends on the people, development results shared by the people, make more effective institutional arrangements, so that all people in the common development and sharing of development have more sense of gain, enhance the driving force for development and enhance people Unite and steadily move toward common prosperity.

The development concepts of innovation, coordination, green, openness, and sharing are interlinked and mutually promoted. They are aggregates with intrinsic links. To implement them in a unified manner, they must not be lost or replaced. Which development philosophy is not implemented properly will affect the development process. It is imperative to deepen understanding, grasp the new development concept from the whole and from the internal relations, enhance the comprehensiveness and systematicness of implementation, and constantly develop and develop new realms.

4. Firmly establish and consciously practice the new development concept

The key to leading new development concepts to take root and become universal practice lies in the awareness and actions of leading cadres at all levels. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that party members and cadres, especially leading cadres, must improve their ability and level of implementing new development concepts and become leaders in leading economic and social development.

The use of deep learning, through demonstrations to lead cadres and people to feel the truth of the new development concept of strength. “If you know more, you will do it more.” Establishing a new development philosophy requires continuous learning, in-depth learning, and long-lasting learning, and establishes self-confidence and confidence in the new development concept from the depths of the soul. Leading cadres at all levels must combine history, multidimensional comparative studies, and practical studies to gain a deeper understanding of the guiding significance of the new development concept for all aspects of economic and social development. At the same time, it is necessary to develop knowledgeable and professional learning and pay attention to building a knowledge system that is compatible with the new development concept. Through strengthening learning, the new development concept runs through the entire process of leadership activities, implements decision-making, implementation, and inspection of various tasks, enhances leadership ability, improves management, and continuously enhances the principle and systemic nature of decision making, work, and control. , predictability, creativity.

Make good use of dialectics to scientifically design and construct the new development concept. The proposal of the new development concept is the use of dialectics; the implementation of new development concepts cannot be separated from the guidance of dialectics. We must adhere to the system’s point of view and systematically design in accordance with the integrity and relevance of the new development concept, so that we can promote each other and go hand in hand. We can’t go it alone and ignore each other, and we can’t be paranoid and disproportionate. It is necessary to adhere to the unification of the two points theory and the key theory, and be good at clarifying the major and minor aspects of the major contradictions and the major aspects and minor aspects of the contradictions, prioritize the issues, focus on breakthroughs to promote overall progress, and achieve key breakthroughs in the overall promotion. We must follow the laws of the laws of the unity of opposites, the law of mutual transformation of quality, and the law of negation of negation. We must be good at grasping the universality and specificity of development, the gradualness and leap forward, the advancement and tortuousness, and insisting on the unification of inheritance and innovation, both practical and pragmatic. Stably and steadily, but also with the times, dare to fight. We must adhere to a specific analysis of specific issues, and all should be shifted by time, place, and conditions. We should be good at making exchanges and comparisons and be good at grasping the timeliness of work.

Innovative means, good at promoting the implementation of new development concepts through reform and the rule of law. The implementation of the new concept of development involves a series of changes in the way of thinking, behavior, and work. It involves the adjustment of a series of working relationships, social relations, and interests, and must play a role in the promotion of reform and the role of the rule of law. The central government’s various plans for comprehensively deepening reforms are consistent with the implementation of the new development concept. The principled requirements of the central reform program can be combined with reality to further the materialization; and the blank points of the reform plan can be actively explored and boldly tested. When confronted with ideological resistance and work resistance, efforts should be made to eliminate it, and no compromise or compromise should be allowed. It is necessary to analyze in depth the new requirements put forward by the new development concept on the construction of the rule of law, analyze and implement in depth the outstanding problems encountered by the new development concept in the field of the rule of law, take targeted measures and use the rule of law thinking and the rule of law to implement the new development concept.

Keeping the bottom line, resolve conflicts and risks in the implementation of new development concepts. “The brighter people are not in control, and the wise men are suffering in the future.” Faced with the challenges of international and domestic conflicts, we must not take it lightly. We must be proactive and take precautions. We must know what we are doing and how to prevent it from happening. Prepare for any form of contradictory risk and challenge to ensure the continuity and stability of our country’s development. Party committees and governments at all levels should enhance their sense of responsibility and awareness, improve their ability to monitor and control risks, ensure that they are responsible, responsible and responsible, and proactively guard against risks, discover risks, and eliminate risks.

The new development concept is the baton, traffic lights. It is necessary to unify ideas and actions into new development concepts, advocating innovation, focusing on coordination, advocating green, building openness, promoting sharing, striving to improve the ability and level of overall implementation of new development concepts, and accelerating the formation of institutional mechanisms for the implementation of new development concepts. It is necessary to immediately adjust the understanding of inadaptation, unsuitability or even contravention of the new development concept. We must resolutely correct acts that are incompatible, unsuitable or even contrary to the new development concept. We must completely discard the practice of being unadapted, unsuitable or even violating the new development concept. Effectively, we have made new breakthroughs in enhancing innovation capabilities, promoting development balance, improving the ecological environment, raising the level of openness, and promoting shared development.

Xi Jinping presides over the seminar on rural reform: Intensifying efforts to promote rural reform under the new situation

Promote the foundation of agriculture to stabilize farmers

On April 25, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, State Chairman and Chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping presided over a discussion meeting on rural reform in Xiaogang Village, Fengyang County, Anhui Province, and delivered an important speech.

General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, Chairman of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping presided over a rural reform seminar and delivered an important speech in Xiaogang Village, Fengyang County, Anhui Province. He stressed that China must strengthen its agriculture, and China must be beautiful in rural areas and China must be rich in peasants. We must continue to make efforts to solve the “three rural issues” as the priority of the work of the whole party, increase the intensity of rural reform under the new situation, strengthen urban and rural planning, implement the policy of strengthening agriculture, benefiting agriculture, and investing in agriculture, promote a solid agricultural foundation, and ensure rural harmony and stability. The farmers live and work in peace and contentment.

During his research in Anhui, Xi Jinping convened this symposium on April 25th to hold discussions with local city and county leaders and members of the “two committees” team of Xiaogang Village, leaders of leading packs, and representatives of villagers.

At the symposium, Li Ming, secretary of the Wuzhou Municipal Committee, and Mi Decheng, secretary of the Fengyang county party committee, Wu Xiaolin, the first secretary of the Xiaogang village party committee, Yan Junchang, representative of the head of the big bales, and Cheng Xibing, a representative of large grain producers, gave speeches. They combined the significant changes that have taken place since the reform and opening up of Xiaogang Village, talked about the highlights of the party’s rural policy and deepened the prospects for rural reform, and offered opinions and suggestions to the party and the government to further support agriculture, rural development, and wealthy farmers. Xi Jinping listens to me and communicates with them from time to time.

After listening to everyone’s speeches, Xi Jinping made an important speech. He pointed out that Xiaogang Village is the main source of rural reform. The two-tier management system based on household contract management and based on the agricultural production responsibility system of Xiaogang Village and Dabaogan is an important cornerstone of our party’s rural policy. Holding this forum in Xiaogang Village is of special significance.

Xi Jinping emphasized that since the reform and opening up, the great practice of rural reform has driven China’s agricultural production, peasants’ lives, and the appearance of rural areas to undergo tremendous changes. This has made significant contributions to China’s reform and opening up and socialist modernization. These tremendous changes have enabled the broad masses of farmers to see a bright future toward prosperity and have strengthened the confidence of our party in following the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The successful practice and experience of rural reform must be sustained and improved over the long term.

Xi Jinping pointed out that at present, agriculture is still a short leg of modernization, and rural areas are still a short board for building a well-to-do society. The whole party must always attach great importance to the problems of agriculture, rural areas, and peasants, firmly grasp the work of “three rural issues” and firmly grasp it, and continue to grasp new achievements. Solving the various contradictions and problems faced by the agricultural and rural development basically depends on deepening reforms. Under the new circumstances, to deepen rural reform, the main line is still to handle the relationship between farmers and land. The biggest policy is to uphold and improve the basic rural management system, persist in the collective ownership of rural land, adhere to the basic status of family business, and insist on stabilizing land contract relations. We must speed up the implementation of the registration system for land contractual management rights, and truly allow farmers to eat the “centering pill.”

Xi Jinping stressed that to improve the basic rural management system, it is necessary to comply with farmers’ willingness to retain land contracting rights and transfer land management rights. Farmers’ right to land contractual management should be divided into contracting rights and operating rights, and the separation of contracting rights and operating rights should be implemented concurrently. This is another major institutional innovation in rural reform. Relying on land management rights and promoting the orderly circulation of land management rights are highly policy-oriented. We must grasp the degree of circulation, concentration, and scale of operations, and must adapt to the urbanization process and the transfer scale of rural labor, and agricultural science and technology progress and production. The degree of adaptation of the means is adapted to the improvement of the level of agricultural socialization services. To respect the will of farmers and safeguard the rights and interests of farmers, to hand over the right of choice to the peasants, the peasants can choose instead of replacing the peasants’ choices. They can demonstrate and guide them, but they do not impose orders, are not irritating, and are not one-size-fits-all. No matter how it is reformed, we must not change the collective ownership of rural land, we must not reduce the amount of arable land, we must not weaken our grain production capacity, and we must not damage peasant interests.

Xi Jinping pointed out that the deepening of rural reform needs multiple linkages. While adhering to and improving the basic rural management system, efforts should be made to promote the reform of rural collective assets to households and shareholding cooperatives, speed up the construction of a new type of agricultural management system, promote the comprehensive reform of supply and marketing cooperatives, improve the agricultural support and protection system, and promote the transfer of agricultural population. Orderly realization of urbanization and improvement of the integrated urban and rural institutional mechanisms.

Xi Jinping emphasized that to speed up rural development, we must firmly grasp the three major tasks of developing modern agriculture, increasing peasant income, and building a new socialist countryside. To develop modern agriculture, on the basis of stabilizing grain production and ensuring national food security, we must focus on building a modern agricultural industrial system, a production system, and an operating system, and accelerate the establishment of a professional peasant contingent to form a contingent of high-quality agricultural producers and operators. To increase farmers’ income, we must establish a long-term policy mechanism, and continue to narrow the income gap between urban and rural residents through the development of the rural economy, the organization of peasants to go out to work and business, and the increase of farmers’ property income. In terms of policies, we must consider how to increase the efficiency of food production, increase farmers’ income from grain production, and realize that peasants’ production of food and increased income go hand in hand, prevent farmers of grain farming from suffering economic losses, and prevent big grain-producing counties from suffering financial losses. To build a new socialist countryside, we must plan first, follow the village’s own development laws, make up for rural shortcomings, raise the strengths of the countryside, pay attention to the taste of the countryside, preserve the rural landscape, and retain the pastoral homesickness. We must do a good job in comprehensive improvement of the rural human settlement environment in light of local conditions and create a clean and tidy rural living environment.

Xi Jinping pointed out that rural stability is the vital interest of the broad masses of farmers. Rural areas are vast, farmers are scattered, rural areas are very different, and social management must be strengthened and innovated to ensure that people’s livelihood is prioritized and to establish a system governance, legal governance, comprehensive governance, and source governance concepts. It is necessary to form a joint force for the development of rural social undertakings and strive to allow the majority of peasants to learn to teach, to seek medical treatment, to provide for old age, and to live. It is necessary to promote the construction of Pingxiang Townships and Pingan Villages, carry out special rectifications for outstanding public security issues, and guide the majority of farmers to consciously abide by the law.

Xi Jinping stressed that the party’s management of rural work is our tradition. This tradition cannot be lost. Party committees at all levels must strengthen their leadership over the work of agriculture, rural areas and farmers. Leading cadres at all levels must go to the countryside more and more, look at the peasants’ homes, understand the peasants’ demands and expectations, resolve social conflicts in the countryside, and genuinely help farmers. Solve the practical problems in production and life, and be a caring people. We must build rural grass-roots party organizations into a strong core of leadership that implements the party’s policies, leads farmers to become rich, maintains close ties with the masses, and maintains stability in the countryside.

Speech by Xi Jinping at the Opening Ceremony of the Fifth Foreign Ministers’ Meeting of AsiaInfo

(April 28, 2016, Beijing)

Foreign Ministers, distinguished guests,

Ladies and gentlemen, friends:

“At the turn of the spring and summer, the sky is in between.” Welcome to Beijing in this vibrant season. First of all, on behalf of the Chinese government and people, and in my own name, I would like to extend my sincere welcome to the foreign ministers and representatives from the Afghani and observer countries as well as the responsible persons and representatives of relevant international organizations! Warm congratulations on the convening of this meeting!

This meeting is the first time that the Asia Foreign Ministers’ Association will be held in China. It is also a major event for the promotion of Asian security and development and the promotion of AsiaInfo under the new situation. The theme of the meeting was “Promoting Security through the Dialogue”, aggregating consensus among all parties, promoting Asian security, seeking common development, strengthening the role of AsiaInfo, and promoting trust and collaboration. This is of great significance to the security and prosperity of Asia and the world.

The world today is in an unprecedented historical transformation. The current trend of peace, development, cooperation, and mutual benefit is irresistible. At the same time, the planet we live in is not peaceful. It is still a long way to go to maintain world peace and promote common development.

In the process of world peace and development, Asia has a unique and important position. In today’s Asia, peace and stability are the trend of the times, and development and prosperity are the hearts of the people. As the Asian economy leads the world, regional cooperation and integration are in the ascendant, and Asia’s strategic position in the global development is constantly rising. At the same time, traditional security problems such as partial turmoil in Asia still exist, non-traditional security threats such as terrorism are increasingly prominent, and regional security cooperation needs to be strengthened.

At the AsiaInfo Shanghai Summit in 2014, I proposed the establishment of a common, integrated, cooperative, and sustainable Asian security concept and a path to building a shared, win-win Asian security. In the past two years, the development of international and regional situations has shown that maintaining regional security requires joint efforts. We must adhere to and practice the Asian security concept, build consensus, promote dialogue, strengthen collaboration, and promote the establishment of a security governance model with Asian characteristics to create a beautiful future for peace and prosperity in Asia. To this end, we must focus our efforts on the following aspects.

First, grasp the direction and build a community of Asian fate. The security, commonness, and destiny of all Asian countries are related. We must develop new partnerships for win-win cooperation, respect each other, treat each other as equals, help each other and help each other, take into consideration the legitimate concerns of all countries when pursuing our national interests, promote the common development of all countries in the pursuit of our own development, and respect national security when safeguarding our own national security. Together to promote regional peace, stability, and prosperity. We must deepen cooperation in the areas of military politics, new threats, new challenges, economy, humanities, environmental protection, and other areas of security and trust measures, and jointly build a blue sky for the security and development of Asia.

Second, lay a solid foundation to promote exchanges and understanding among different civilizations. Asian nations, religions, and cultures are diverse. Social systems, development paths, and economic development levels are all different, and their perceptions and concerns about security issues are not the same. Under such circumstances, we must strengthen exchanges and strengthen communication so as to transform Asia’s diversity into a driving force for expanding exchanges and cooperation, promote the understanding, common development of different civilizations, and play a role in maintaining regional peace and stability. All parties can gather wisdom and strength through participation in platforms and means such as the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference to create a deeper foundation for comprehensive regional security management.

Third, mutual understanding and mutual accommodation, adherence to dialogue and consultation, and peaceful resolution of disputes. “The people who are prosperous in Germany are prone to die.” Weak and strong foods are contrary to the trend of the times, and militarism cannot create peace. Mutual understanding and mutual accommodation can lead to stability and adhere to morality in order to win lasting security. We must adhere to dialogue and consultation, and in accordance with international law, insist on resolving disputes in a peaceful manner, increase mutual trust through dialogue, resolve conflicts through dialogue, and promote security through dialogue. In light of the complex regional hot issues, all parties concerned must maintain calmness and adherence to peace, avoid taking actions to escalate the situation, manage crisis through the establishment of rules and regulations, relieve tension through mutual trust, resolve the crisis through political means, and gradually promote problem solving.

Fourth, step by step, explore the establishment of a security framework that meets the characteristics of the region. There are multiple security cooperation mechanisms in Asia and they all play a role in maintaining regional security. We must adhere to and promote the Asian countries’ long-standing approach of mutual respect, consensus, and the comfort of all parties. We must strengthen the coordination of various regional security mechanisms and gradually develop cooperation around similar or similar goals so as to create synergy and achieve practical results. . On this basis, we can gradually explore the establishment of a new framework for regional security cooperation that is consistent with the characteristics of Asia. Forums such as the AsiaInfo Non-Government Forum can conduct discussions on this issue and propose ideas and suggestions on regional security cooperation principles and key directions.

In today’s world, the trend of cooperation is voluminous and the concept of inclusiveness is deeply rooted in people’s minds. Asian countries and people have the ability to maintain the Asian security and development environment through dialogue and cooperation. Asia has always had an open and inclusive tradition and also has the wisdom to ascend. We welcome countries outside the region to contribute positive energy to peace and development in Asia and work with Asian countries to promote security, stability, development and prosperity in Asia. Asia has stabilized and developed, and it has benefited the world; Asia has been chaotic, declining, and unfavorable to the world. This is a profound truth that Asian history has taught people in modern times.

Ladies, gentlemen and friends!

China pursues a peaceful foreign policy and puts forward and takes the lead in implementing a common, comprehensive, cooperative, and sustainable Asian security concept. It has always been a defender, builder, and contributor to international and regional security. China firmly persists in the path of peaceful development, unswervingly upholds the international order centered on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, and unswervingly promotes the establishment of new-type international relations centered on cooperation and win-win results, and is committed to building a community of human destiny. For a long time, China has worked together with the international community to jointly respond to international and regional security risks, challenges and crises and made positive contributions.

The world pays attention to Asia and Asia influences the world. At present, some hot issues involving the security situation in Asia have received great attention from the international community. China has made active efforts to promote the resolution of these issues.

Since the beginning of this year, the situation in the Korean Peninsula has continued to be tense. China has made great efforts to control the situation and promote dialogue and negotiation between all parties. We insist on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, insist on maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula, and persist in solving problems through dialogue and consultation. As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, China fully implements the relevant UN Security Council resolutions. As a close neighbor of the peninsula, we must not allow the peninsula to make war. If this happens, it will not benefit anyone. It is hoped that all parties will exercise restraint and do not mutually stimulate and intensify conflicts. Instead, they must work together to bring the peninsula nuclear issue back to the track of dialogue, negotiation, and resolution, and promote the long-term stability of Northeast Asia.

Afghanistan is undergoing a crucial transition period and faces many challenges. It needs the support of the international community. China actively participates in the Istanbul process of Afghanistan, supports the peaceful reconstruction of Afghanistan, and supports the inclusive political reconciliation process in which “the Arabs dominated and the Arabs owned it.” China sincerely hopes that Afghanistan will achieve peace, stability, and development at an early date and is ready to work with the international community to continue to provide support and assistance for peace reconstruction, political reconciliation and smooth transition in Afghanistan.

The early settlement of such issues as Syria and Palestine will not only meet the interests of all parties involved, but will also be shared by the international community. China has always advocated the promotion of peaceful resolution of relevant issues through political negotiations. It has been actively promoting peace talks in various ways and will continue to make efforts for this purpose. China has played a constructive role in reaching a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue and is willing to work with all parties to continue to promote the follow-up to the comprehensive agreement.

For some time, all parties have been very concerned about the South China Sea issue. I would like to stress that China has always been committed to maintaining peace and stability in the South China Sea region, firmly safeguarding its sovereignty and related rights in the South China Sea, and persisting in peacefully resolving disputes through friendly negotiations and negotiations with the countries directly concerned. China is ready to work with ASEAN countries to build the South China Sea into a sea of ​​peace, a sea of ​​friendship and a sea of ​​cooperation.

Ladies, gentlemen and friends!

Since taking over the presidency of AsiaInfo in 2014, China has conscientiously fulfilled its responsibilities and promoted dialogue and cooperation in all areas of AsiaInfo to achieve positive results. In the next two years, China will be re-elected as Chairman and is willing to work with all parties to promote AsiaInfo to play a greater role in regional security and development. Hereby, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all parties for their great support and cooperation in the work of the Chinese chairmanship!

At present, the Chinese people are united in their struggle to realize the goal of building a well-off society in an all-round way and realize the Chinese dream of a great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. China’s development will continue to create more opportunities for all countries and bring more benefits to the people of all countries. In the process of pursuing the Chinese dream, the Chinese people will help and support people of all countries in realizing their dreams of a better life. Together, they will realize the Asian dream of lasting peace and common prosperity and create a beautiful future in Asia!

Finally, I wish the conference a complete success!

thank you all.
