Fortune rewards the diligent and times are changing fast. In 2017, we held the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and embarked on a new journey to fully build a modern socialist China.


I applaud the Chinese people for their great creativity.


The people have made sacrifices for the good of the nation without regrets or complaints. I feel the millions of ordinary Chinese are the greatest, and I also feel that happiness is achieved through hard work.


Building a high-rise begins with mounds of soil. To translate the blueprint into reality, we have to avoid the distractions of unsubstantial ideas and superficial fame, take one step at a time, and approach our work with a firm footing.


At the significant juncture of the 40th anniversary, we should surmount all obstacles to carry the reform further to its ultimate triumph.


By 2020, China will lift its rural impoverished population out of poverty by current standards. That is our solemn commitment and we will honor it.


China will always be a builder of world peace, contributor to global development and keeper of international order.


China's great achievement of development was made by the people and for the people.


I am aware of the people's biggest concerns, such as education, employment, income, social security, healthcare, old-age security, housing and the environment. Though progress has been made, issues of public concern remain.


The Party committees, governments, and officials at all levels must constantly hold in their hearts the interests and 

concerns of the people, and regard the benefit of the people as their greatest political achievement; they must think for the people, respond to their needs, and work for the greater happiness of the people.

Thank you all!
