Reform and opening-up|
- Remarkable achievements
China began its historic journey of reform and opening-up in 1978, and the Chinese people have added a glorious chapter to the development epic of the country and the nation over the past four decades, Xi said.
Over the last four decades, the Chinese people have significantly unleashed and enhanced productivity in China through hard work with an unyielding spirit, Xi said.
Over the last four decades, the Chinese people have blazed a path of socialism with Chinese characteristics through determined exploration with a pioneering spirit, according to Xi.
Over the last four decades, the Chinese people have kept forging ahead and demonstrated the strength of the nation through keeping pace with the progress of the times, he noted.
"Over the last four decades, the Chinese people have embraced the world with open arms and actively contributed our share to the world," Xi said.
"Today, the Chinese people can say with great pride that reform and opening-up, China's second revolution if you like, has not only profoundly changed the country but also greatly influenced the whole world," the president said.
- Meeting global trend
Four decades of reform and opening-up has provided many valuable inspirations, Xi said.
"The most important one is that for any country or nation to achieve rejuvenation, they must follow the logic of history and the trend of the times in their pursuit of progress and development," Xi said.
"China's reform and opening-up meets its people's aspiration for development, innovation and a better life. It also meets the global trend toward development, cooperation and peace," Xi said.
- Reform and opening up will definitely succeed
Xi said China's reform and opening up will definitely succeed and that a Cold War mentality, zero-sum thinking, and isolationism would hit walls.
Xi said that opening brings progress, while closure would lead to backwardness.
Xi said that in a world aspiring for peace and development, the cold-war and zero-sum mentality look even more out of place.
"Putting oneself on a pedestal or trying to immune oneself from adverse developments will get nowhere," said Xi.
Xi said humanity has a major choice to make between openness and isolation, and between progress and retrogression.
"We must dispel the clouds to see the sun, as we say in Chinese, so as to have a keen grasp of the law of history and the trend of the world," said Xi.
Xi said we live at a time with an overwhelming trend toward peace and cooperation as well as openness and connectivity.
Xi said we also live at a time with an overwhelming trend toward reform and innovation, adding that those who reject them will be left behind and assigned to the dustbin of history.
