We strive to build a well-off society in an all-round way and win a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

During this plenary election, I continued to serve as General Secretary of the Central Committee. I sincerely thank the comrades for their trust. I deeply feel that my responsibility is significant and I am determined to work with the new collective leadership of the Central Committee to closely rely on the comrades of the entire Party, closely rely on the people of all ethnic groups in the country, and do my best to stay in the public day and night. I will never fail to live up to the comrades’ trust and expectations.

The five years since the party’s 18th National Congress were extremely extraordinary in the development process of the party and the country. The historic achievements have been achieved in reform, opening up, and socialist modernization. Faced with the situation in which the international situation is undergoing drastic changes and domestic tasks of reform, development, and stability are extremely heavy, the Party Central Committee has firmly held high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, comprehensively strengthened and improved the party’s leadership, and united and led the entire party and people of all ethnic groups to face difficulties. , pioneering and enterprising, carrying out a great struggle with many new historical features, coordinating the overall layout of the “five in one”, coordinating and promoting the “four comprehensive” strategic plans, introducing a series of major policies and policies, and launching a series of major measures to promote the A series of major tasks have overcome a series of major challenges and have solved many long-term problems that have been resolved but have not been solved. They have completed many important events that they had wanted to accomplish in the past and have not been completed. They have promoted historical changes in the party and the country’s business, and the country’s economic strength, The scientific and technological strength, national defense strength, comprehensive national strength, international influence, and people’s sense of acquisition have significantly improved, laying a more solid foundation for the advancement and development of the party and the country’s undertakings.

The great achievements and important experience we have made since the party’s 18th National Congress have fused the wisdom and efforts of the 18th Central Committee, the Central Political Bureau, and the Standing Committee of the Central Political Bureau. We all bear in mind that the party and the people are eager to trust, abide by their responsibilities, work diligently, and blaze new trails, and have made outstanding achievements in their respective posts. Now, many comrades such as Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan, and Zhang Gaoli have left the leadership positions of the Party Central Committee, and the Party and the people will bear in mind their significant contributions. Here, on behalf of the 19th Central Committee, I extend my sincere gratitude and high respect to them!

The 19th National Congress of the Party, which has just concluded, is a very important conference held during the crucial stage of the complete completion of a well-to-do society and the crucial period of the new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics. It is a once-in-a-lifetime event, remembering mission, holding high the banner, and forging ahead with unity. Assembly. The General Assembly upholds the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics and takes the Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thinking of the “Three Represents”, the scientific concept of development, and the socialist ideology of Chinese characteristics in a new era as guidance to analyze the development of international and domestic situations. Reviewing and summarizing the work and historic changes of the past five years, we have made the contradiction between the socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era and the main contradictions in our country’s society have been transformed into the people’s growing need for a better life and unbalanced development. Such major political arguments elaborated the historical mission of the Communist Party of China in the new era, put forward the socialist ideology and basic strategy with Chinese characteristics in a new era, and determined the goal of winning the race to build a well-off society in an all-round way and opening up a new journey for the building of a socialist modernization country. The era has promoted the full deployment of the great cause of building socialism with Chinese characteristics and the great new project of party building.

The report of the 18th Central Committee passed by the General Assembly depicts a grand blueprint for winning the great victory in building a well-to-do society in an all-round way and capturing a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics. It further indicates the direction of the party and the country’s cause and is the whole party and people of all ethnic groups across the country. The crystallization of wisdom is a political declaration and action plan for our party to unite and lead the people of all ethnic groups in the country in persisting and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. The work report of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection passed by the General Assembly summarized the work of the 18th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and fully affirmed the major achievements made in the discipline inspection work under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, and declared that our party has advanced the building of a clean and honest government. Strong determination and determination to fight corruption. The party constitution amendment adopted by the General Assembly embodies the achievements of the party’s theoretical innovation, practical innovation, and institutional innovation since the 18th CPC National Congress. It embodies the important theoretical viewpoints and major strategic ideas established by the party’s Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, strengthening the party. The comprehensive leadership and advancement of strict and comprehensive governance of the party have put forward clear requirements.

Fully implementing the spirit of the party’s Nineteenth Congress and striving to achieve the objectives and tasks set by the party’s Nineteenth National Congress are the major political tasks and themes for the new leadership of the central leadership. The new era means a new starting point and new requirements, and the new era calls for new actions and new actions. At present and for a period to come, we must focus on the following six areas of work.

First, we must fully grasp the new requirements for the socialism with Chinese characteristics entering a new era, and constantly improve the level of party and country development. Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. This is a new historical orientation for China’s development. Since the party’s 18th National Congress, based on the significant achievements made since the establishment of New China, especially since the reform and opening up, China’s development has come to a new historical starting point and the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new stage of development. This shows that the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics must move from the first century-long struggle goal to the second century-long struggle goal. Building a well-to-do society in an all-round way, accelerating socialist modernization, and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will face even brighter prospects. We need to make even more arduous efforts. In the journey of the new era, the comrades of the whole party must adapt to the development requirements of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, improve strategic thinking, innovative thinking, dialectical thinking, legal thinking, and bottom-line thinking capabilities, and strengthen the principle, system, and foresight of the work. Sex and creativity, better grasp changes in domestic and international situations, better implement the Party’s theory and line guidelines and policies, and better implement the principles, development strategies, and policies and measures adopted by the Party’s Nineteenth National Congress to better promote socialism with Chinese characteristics. The great cause and the new great project of party building will unite and lead the people of all nationalities in the country to work hard to write a new chapter in building a well-to-do society in an all-round way and comprehensively building a modern socialist country.

Second, we must fully implement the socialist ideology and basic strategy with Chinese characteristics in a new era and continuously improve the Marxist theoretical level of the entire party. The socialist ideology and basic strategy with Chinese characteristics in the new era have not fallen from the sky, not subjectively devised, but since the party’s 18th National Congress, since the founding of New China, especially since the reform and opening up, our party has promoted theoretical innovation and practical innovation. Based on the results, the whole party and the people of all ethnic groups throughout the country have made painstaking explorations of theoretical results, which is the wisdom of the whole party and the people of all ethnic groups in China. The tree of life is evergreen. The birth of a theory, the source can only be a rich and vivid real life, power can only be a realistic requirement for solving social contradictions and problems. In the journey of the new era, the comrades of the whole party must promote the study style of combining theory with practice, closely link with the historical changes that have taken place in the party and the country’s undertakings, closely link the socialism with Chinese characteristics into the new reality of the new era, and closely link with the main social contradictions in our country. The major changes are closely linked to the “two hundred years” goal and various tasks. They consciously use theories to guide practice so that all aspects of work are more in line with objective laws and laws, and continuously improve the new era to uphold and develop Chinese characteristics. Its ability to transform the party’s scientific theory into a powerful force that promotes the realization of the “two hundred years” goal and realizes the Chinese nation’s great rejuvenation of the Chinese dream.

Third, we must fully complete the decisive victory, complete all tasks for a well-off society, and continuously improve the level of socialist modernization. The successful conclusion of a well-to-do society and the successful completion of a well-off society in an all-round way is the most important task for the party and the country at the present and in the future. The 19th Party Congress further clarified our party’s commitment to building a well-to-do society on schedule. From the perspective of time, it took more than three years, but it was short lived. The time was tight and the time was not waiting. From the perspective of requirements, to build a well-to-do society in an all-round way must be approved by the people and able to withstand historical inspections. From the mission point of view, there are many difficult times to grasp key points, fill short boards, and strengths and weaknesses. In particular, we must resolutely fight against tough battles to prevent major risks, eliminate poverty, and prevent pollution. To accomplish extraordinary things, we must have extraordinary spirit and actions. The final victory is the charge number, which is the total mobilization. In the journey of the new era, all party comrades must complete all tasks in accordance with the arrangements made by the party’s Nineteenth Congress for economic construction, political construction, cultural construction, social construction, and ecological civilization construction, and ensure that the construction of a well-off society is completed on schedule. Society, and on this basis, take advantage of the situation and start a new journey for the building of a modern socialist country.

Fourth, comprehensively advance reforms in various fields in various fields and continuously improve the modernization level of the national governance system and governance capacity. Career development problems, intensify the reform to make a fuss. The party’s Nineteenth Congress has laid new demands on the development of the party and the country’s undertakings, and has proposed new tasks for comprehensively deepening reforms. All party comrades must keep in mind that reform and opening up are the key to determining the destiny of contemporary China and are also a key to the decision to achieve the goals of the “two hundred years” and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Without reform and opening up, there will be no society with Chinese characteristics. There is no good situation in which China is thriving today. After the party’s 18th National Congress, we integrated comprehensive deepening reform into the “four comprehensive” strategic layout. We have steadily advanced reforms in all aspects in our hoofs, achieved remarkable results, and vigorously promoted the development of various undertakings. At the same time, we must also realize that there is no limit to the development of the cause and that there is no need to deepen the reform; the comprehensive development of the cause of development calls for the comprehensive deepening of the reform. This is what I said. When the reform is carried out, it does not end. In the new era of upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics, the fundamental driving force is still to comprehensively deepen reforms. In the journey of the new era, the comrades of the whole party must adapt to the process of the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, firmly grasp the overall goal of consummating and developing the socialist system with Chinese characteristics, and advancing the modernization of the national governance system and governance capabilities. In all fields of reform, we have continuously promoted theoretical innovation, institutional innovation, technological innovation, cultural innovation, and other innovations. We have resolutely eliminated all ill-timed ideological concepts, system and mechanism defects, and broke through barriers to solidification of interests to build a well-to-do society for success. The new journey of comprehensively building a modern socialist country provides a powerful impetus.

Fifth, we must fully implement the people-centered development concept and continuously improve the protection and improvement of people’s livelihood. It is the initial heart of the Chinese communists to seek happiness for the people. We must always remember this early mind and always regard people’s longing for a better life as our goal. The 19th Party Congress made a full deployment of safeguarding and improving people’s livelihood. We must always achieve the highest standards for the realization, maintenance, and development of the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people. We must lead the people in creating a better life. Let the achievements in reform and development benefit the entire people more and more equitably, and make people feel better, feel better, and feel safer. It is full, more secure, and more sustainable, and it is moving toward realizing common prosperity for all people. In the journey of the new era, the comrades of the whole party must seize the interests of the people that are most concerned with the most immediate and realistic issues, persist in taking the people’s concerns as their own major event, start with the concerns of the people, and seek to inspire people’s livelihood. The benefits, understanding of people’s livelihood, worry about the young, educated, learned, labored, sick, medical, old-minded, live-in, weak and supportive, continue to make new progress, constantly Promote social fairness and justice, continuously promote the all-round development of people, and the common prosperity of all people.

Sixth, we must comprehensively promote the new great project of party building and continuously improve the overall strict administration of the party. Adhering to the leadership of the party and upholding the party’s responsibility for managing the party and comprehensively managing the party strictly is the fundamental guarantee for carrying out great struggles with many new historical features, advancing the great cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and realizing the great dream of national rejuvenation. It is also our party’s The inevitable requirement of advancing with the times and always maintaining the advanced nature and purity. Our Party’s practice of uniting and leading people in revolution, construction, and reform proves that when our party is strong on its own, the party’s and the people’s cause can be invincible. The 19th Party Congress summed up our adherence to the party’s leadership and the new experience of strengthening the party’s construction, and clearly put forward the general requirements for party building in the new era. This general requirement is not empty, abstract, preaching, but comes from strengthening the party’s construction, advancing the practical needs of fully governing the party strictly, and solving the practical needs of outstanding contradictions and problems that exist within the party, and from maintaining the party’s advanced The realistic needs of sex and purity and the strengthening of party creativity, the cohesiveness and fighting power, come from the nature and purpose of maintaining the party’s nature, the realistic needs of maintaining the flesh-and-blood relationship between the party and the masses, and the adherence to the party’s ruling status and improving the party’s ability to govern. Expanding the practical needs of the party’s ruling foundation. Backing the boat with support, a retreat Qianjin retreat Chihiro. We must profoundly understand the new requirements put forward by the socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era for our party’s own construction. We must focus on our party’s mission of better fulfillment, sum up the use of successful experiences, face up to outstanding issues, and constantly promote the full and strict administration of the party. Develop in depth. In the journey of the new era, the comrades of the entire party must adhere to and strengthen the overall leadership of the party in accordance with the general requirements for party building in the new era, adhere to the principle that the party must govern the party, comprehensively govern the party strictly, and show perseverance and resilience. We must be long, strict, practical, profound, and meticulous in our efforts to manage our habits and achieve results. As long as we always do our own hard work, our party will surely have a rock-solid will and indestructible force. We will always be able to maintain a flesh-and-blood bond with the masses of the people, and we will surely be able to lead the ship that carries the great dreams of the Chinese people to make waves and advance. The victory headed for the bright side.

To implement the spirit of the party’s Nineteenth Congress, there is also an important task that is to seriously study and implement the party constitution. The party constitution amendment adopted by the party’s Nineteenth Congress reflects the party’s achievements in theoretical innovation, practical innovation, and system innovation since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. It is unwavering in its adherence to the party’s overall leadership and unswervingly promotes its full implementation. There are many new requirements for governing the party, adhering to and improving the party’s construction, and continuously improving the party’s construction quality. The comrades of the whole party should regard studying and implementing the party constitution as an important part of studying and implementing the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China as an important measure for advancing the normalization and institutionalization of the study and education of “two studies and one action,” forming a conscientious study party constitution in the whole party, and implementing the party constitution. Strictly abide by the party constitution and firmly maintain the party constitution. It effectively implements the requirements of the party constitution to the party’s work and the entire process and aspects of party building.

Comrades! It is the historic mission of the Communist Party of China in the new era to unite and lead the people of all ethnic groups across the country in building a well-to-do society on the road to building socialism with Chinese characteristics, and to build an overall socialist modernized nation and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Today, the baton of history was handed to us. In carrying out this important task, we are full of confidence and are on thin ice. We are full of confidence because we have the Marxist force of truth because we have the strong leadership of the party because we have the right path of socialism with Chinese characteristics because we have the great unity of the entire party, the entire army, and the people of all ethnic groups. If you are on thin ice, it is because the socialism with Chinese characteristics needs to continue to explore arduously. This is because it is necessary to constantly overcome all kinds of risks and challenges. It is because resisting the corruption of various decadent ideas requires a courageous self-revolution.

Five years ago, at the First Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, I once said that lofty beliefs have always been a strong spiritual pillar of our party. The people have always been a solid governance foundation for our party; as long as we never shake our beliefs and never Without leaving the people, we will be invincible. This statement, I will emphasize it again today. All the comrades of the 19th Central Committee must be loyal to the party, loyal to the motherland, and loyal to the people. They must be worried, courageous, and willing to contribute. They must be modest, prudent, arrogant, and hard-working and devote themselves fully to the party and the people. cause. Here, I would like to mention a few points of hope and share with you.

First, firm ideals and beliefs. Ideals and beliefs are the beacon of career and life, determine our direction and position, and also determine our remarks and actions. Senior cadres, especially the comrades of the Central Committee, must become the mainstay of the quest of the communists in the spirit of the era. Over the past few years, we have investigated and dealt with so many leading cadres. They violated discipline and violated the law, and finally fell into the abyss of crimes. They were fundamentally the collapse of the line of ideals and beliefs. If a leading cadre loses his ideals and convictions, he will lose control of himself and will lose his direction. This will not only go beyond the bottom line of being a member of the party, but will also go beyond the bottom line of being a man. Every comrade in the Central Committee must regard firm ideals and convictions as the top priority in life, and consciously make demonstrations and examples for the entire party. We must conscientiously study Marxist theory, observe the world’s development trend in depth, profoundly inspect the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and constantly enhance the road to self-confidence, theoretical self-confidence, institutional self-confidence, and cultural confidence in the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. We must be good at learning from the successes and failures of foreign and foreign parties, from the history of our country and our party, and from the positive and negative aspects of the Party’s traditions in these years, learn lessons and consciously reinforce the spiritual backbone of the communists. The action allows the people to feel the power of ideals and beliefs and noble personality. Ideals and convictions are not used to sing and sing. They are not used to decorate the façade. Only the action is persuasive. It is necessary to unite one thing with one another, to use words and deeds, to maintain passion and attachment to ideals and beliefs, to firmly establish a correct outlook on the world, power, and business, to use their own practical actions to persevere in and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics, and to achieve communist ideals. struggle.

Second, strengthen political responsibility. The central authority of the party and the centralized and unified leadership are the most crucial ones. To look at the quality and ability of a party member cadre, especially a senior cadre, first of all see if it is politically stable and reliable. To stand firm and reliable, the most important thing is to firmly establish the “four consciousnesses” and consciously maintain a high degree of agreement with the Central Committee of the Party in ideological and political actions, and resolutely uphold the authority of the Party Central Committee and the centralized leadership of all parties. Unwavering, unrelenting efforts to implement the Party Central Committee’s decision-making arrangements, without any discounts, no cleverness, and no clever actions. Every comrade in the Central Committee should clearly and politically consciously and consciously use the standards of Marxist politicians to strictly dictate themselves, identify political positions, increase political awareness, and strengthen political responsibilities. We must pay attention to improving political capabilities, especially the ability to grasp the direction, grasp the general trend, grasp the overall capabilities, and maintain political power, control the political situation, and guard against political risks. Planning business development, formulating policies and measures, cultivating talent for cadres, and promoting the implementation of work must all focus on the consolidation and enhancement of our Party’s governing status and focus on the development of the Party and the people’s cause. We must strictly abide by political discipline and political rules, fully implement the guidelines for political life in the party, ensure the smooth implementation of party decree, ensure that the local party obeys the overall situation, and ensure that all work adheres to the correct political direction.

Third, comprehensively enhance our skills. The world today is facing an unprecedented big change. Socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. The profound changes in the environment inside and outside the party and at home and abroad, the profound changes in the work targets and working conditions, and the shortening of the knowledge update cycle have brought many new requirements to our ability. Therefore, the 19th Party Congress emphasized in particular that our party must not only be politically strong, but also be highly competent, and put forward specific requirements for comprehensively enhancing its ability to govern. This is highly targeted. Every comrade on the Central Committee should realize that a high level does not mean that ability is naturally raised, and that weight does not mean that it naturally increases. Everyone must have a sense of urgency, lack of knowledge, lack of skills, and lack of capacity. They must consciously strengthen their studies and strengthen their practice. They must never be complacent and never be slack. We must adapt to the new progress of the work of the party and the country, and strive to enhance all aspects of its ability, including study skills, political leadership skills, reform and innovation skills, scientific development skills, legal skills, the masses, work skills, pay close attention to implementation skills, and control risk skills. All must be strengthened. Over the years, I have always stressed the need to strengthen the professionalization of the cadre ranks, because with the continuous advancement of reform and opening up and the socialist modernization drive, various tasks have made increasingly higher demands on specialization, specialization, and refinement. It is totally unacceptable to adopt a generalized, bold, and extensive leadership style and leadership method. Every comrade in the Central Committee must be diligent in learning and good at learning. He must always maintain an open-minded, hungry learning state and strive to create a literate structure that is both professional and innovative. It is necessary to learn from books and practice, not only from the leaders and colleagues but also from the experts, the grass-roots and the masses, and from the traditional to the modern. They must strive to become communicative and communicative talents.

Fourth, improve the work style. Cadre style is a barometer of the people’s observation and evaluation of the party’s style. The practice of the Party since the 18th National Congress of the People’s Congress has proved that the construction of style of work must be carried out at a rate higher than that with nails and nails. To grasp the work style of the whole party, it is first necessary to do a good job in the construction of the Central Committee. The new Central Committee must maintain the good momentum of party style construction that has been formed since the party’s 18th National Congress and strive to do better. Every comrade in the Central Committee must diligently work for the people, work as a clerk, and be clean and honest. To be diligent and to work hard for the people is to practice the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, to be a public servant of the people, to always keep the safety and well-being of the people at heart, to think of problems, to make decisions, to grasp work and to persist from the masses to the masses. From time to time, we will work hard with the masses, share happiness and happiness, and forge ahead together. The business executives must establish the noble feelings of contributing to the party and people’s cause, concentrate on fulfilling the sacred responsibilities entrusted by the party and the people, work hard, work hard, work up the night, work hard, and reward the trust of the party and the people with first-class performance. And trust. In order to be honest, one must be upright, with both sleeves and breeze, conscientiously abide by the principles of honesty and self-discipline, and consciously abide by the spirit of the central eight rules, consciously accept supervision, fear the people, respect organizations, fear the law, use their rights fairly, use the rights according to law, and use their rights Repel corruption, never stick to it, never engage in privilege, never use power to seek personal gain, and be an upright communist. Our leading cadres not only have to be hard-working themselves, but also have to manage their families and staff around them, fulfill their responsibilities for building the party’s work style and clean government in areas in which they are responsible, and resolutely fight all kinds of unhealthy trends and corruption.

At present, the international situation continues to undergo profound and complex changes. The comparison of world power is conducive to maintaining the overall stability of the international situation. At the same time, world peace and development are facing many serious challenges. The domestic situation in China is always good. At the same time, we are also facing some outstanding conflicts and problems that need to be resolved on the way forward. We must enhance our awareness of dangers, end safety in times of peace, maintain our strategic determination, and resolutely win the faith. We should boldly carry out work, carry out all tasks of reform, development, and stability, work hard to resolve outstanding conflicts and problems, and effectively prevent and resolve various risks. We will strive to achieve the expected goals of economic and social development throughout the year and lay a solid foundation for next year’s work.

Here, I would also like to stress one issue that is to encourage the whole party to investigate and research. I said that investigation and research are the basis of the work and the way to achieve success. Without investigation, there is no right to speak. Without investigation, there is no decision-making power. Investigation and research are basic skills for our work. The Nineteenth Party Congress made clear the principle of adhering to and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in a new era. It has made a series of major work arrangements and put forward a series of major measures. The key is to do a good job in implementing it. The correct decision-making can not be separated from the investigation and study, and the correct implementation is also inseparable from the investigation and research. Every comrade on the Central Committee must actively carry out investigations and studies. They should step down and sink to the front line, take steps, leave the yard, go to the docks in the workshop, go to the fields, and visit the market communities to see and experience for themselves. The investigation and research should closely follow the people’s production and life, closely follow the actual conditions of economic and social development, closely follow the practical problems faced by the comprehensive and strict management of the Party, and closely follow the problems that need to be solved to implement the spirit of the Party’s Nineteen National Congress. We must not only sum up experiences in places where work situations are good and advanced, but also study problems in places where there are many difficulties, situations are complex, and where contradictions are acute. In particular, it is necessary to go to places where the opinions of the masses are numerous, and to work poorly. When we go to the place, we must listen to the people’s whisper, but we must also listen to the counterinsurgency of the masses. Only in this way can we hear the truth, observe the truth, and receive real results. Cadres at all levels, especially leading cadres, should really move forward and deepen in conjunction with the implementation of the spirit of the party’s Nineteenth National Congress, earnestly clarified the existing contradictions and problems, and made every effort to do a good job.

Comrades! Let us unite more closely, hold high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, work hard to forge ahead, work hard, be courageous to open up, be bold in making innovations, and strive to achieve the goals and tasks set by the party’s Nineteenth Congress!

Development and progress have made significant contributions. The achievements of diplomatic work over the past five years have won widespread praise from the entire party and people of all ethnic groups throughout the country.

Xi Jinping stressed that socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era. In order to do a good job in the diplomatic work in the new era, we must first of all deeply understand the spirit of the party’s Nineteenth Congress and correctly understand the current trend of the times and the international trend. Looking at the world, we face a major change that has not been seen in a century. Since the new century, a large number of emerging market countries and developing countries have enjoyed rapid development. The development of the world’s multipolarization has accelerated, and the international structure has become increasingly balanced. The international trend is irreversible. The Communist Party of China has united and led the Chinese people in their struggle and anger. The Chinese nation has ushered in a great leap from standing up, becoming rich and strong, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has shown unprecedented bright prospects. As long as we hold that Qingshan does not relax and advances courageously along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, our country will surely become increasingly prosperous and prosperous. It will surely become increasingly close to the center of the world stage and it will surely make new and greater contributions to mankind. Under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China, the people of all ethnic groups in China have firm confidence and firm conviction, unswervingly follow the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, unswervingly pursue reforms and opening up, do not take the old road, take no evil paths, and courageously open up new roads to enable Chinese characteristics. Socialism has achieved world-renowned development achievements and has demonstrated increasingly bright development prospects.

They should not forget the initial intentions, keep in mind the mission, keep forging ahead, forge ahead with innovation, and further promote the diplomacy of big countries with Chinese characteristics, and continue to develop the cause of the party and the country. Contribute.

First, always respect the party’s loyalty and dedication to the country. Strengthening ideals and beliefs and being absolutely loyal to the party, the country, and the people are the roots and souls of diplomats. We must firmly establish the “four consciousnesses” and firmly “four confidences”, consciously maintain a high degree of agreement with the Central Committee of the Party in ideological and political action, resolutely uphold the authority of the Party Central Committee, and unify the leadership, and resolutely implement the principles and policies of the Party Central Committee. We will resolutely safeguard national interests and national dignity, adhere to diplomacy for the people, and serve the people wholeheartedly.

Second, we must always forge ahead and be a promising business person. The Chinese Communist Party has not only made happiness for the Chinese people, but also made an important contribution to the contribution of all mankind. It is necessary to co-ordinate the domestic and international overall situation, establish a broader world vision, and more ambitious strategic ambitions, with the motherland in mind, and the world economy, promote the building of new-type international relations, and promote the construction of human destiny community. It is necessary to deepen all-round diplomatic arrangements, expand the global partnership network, and continuously expand China’s “friendship circle.” We must promote the building of the “One Belt and One Road,” deepen extensive cooperation with other countries, and promote common development. We must actively participate in global governance and multilateral affairs to safeguard the interests of the Chinese people and the common interests of all mankind. We must tell the story of the Chinese Communist Party, tell the story of China, tell the story of the Chinese people, and promote Chinese and foreign understanding and friendship.

Third, we will always be active and self-reliant. The connotation and denotation of China’s diplomatic work have been continuously expanded, and the situation and tasks have been constantly changing. This has placed higher demands on the construction of the diplomatic team. Diplomats need to be both politically strong and highly skilled. We must persevere in strengthening study, conscientiously study the party’s theory and line guidelines and policies, and national laws and regulations, learn from all aspects of knowledge, and constantly improve the level of scientific and professionalism. It is necessary to strengthen capacity building and provide strong support for external work.

Fourth, the party must be responsible for managing the party and managing the party strictly. The power of diplomacy is in the Party Central Committee and the Party Central Committee exercises centralized and unified leadership over diplomatic work. We must implement the responsibility for managing the Party’s main body, adhere to the principle of comprehensive and strict management of the Party, do a good job of Party leadership and Party building, and do a good job of ideological and political work. We must strictly abide by the party’s political discipline and political rules and strictly implement the eight central provisions. It is necessary to work hard to build a diplomatic team with strong politics, fine business, good style, and strict discipline.

Xi Jinping hopes that the envoys of the delegations will bear in mind the party and the people’s heavy trust, faithfully fulfill their responsibilities, and work hard to make use of their own practical actions to compose a new Chinese color movement for the diplomatic work in the new era.

Members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, Secretary of the Central Secretariat, and Director of the Central Office Ding Xuexiang were accompanied by Yang Jiechi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and State Councilor.

The theme of the 2017 Diplomatic Mission to Foreign Countries is to thoroughly study and implement the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China and the socialist ideology of Xi Jinping in a new era of Chinese characteristics, and to open up a new era in the diplomacy of a big country with Chinese characteristics in an era.
