China News Agency, Beijing, February 18 (Reporter Huang Yuqin) "The people's yearning for a better life is our goal." When Chinese and foreign journalists met, they clearly explained to the outside world the goals that the world's largest ruling party has led China to achieve.
Now, when embarking on a new journey, what will China's future development aim for has once again attracted attention at home and abroad.
This answer may be contained in Xi Jinping's words when meeting Chinese and foreign reporters.
It is not difficult for people to find that realizing the people's yearning for a better life not only depicts the clear context of China's development since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, but will also become an important dimension for the outside world to observe China's future development.
The realization of a moderately prosperous society is the continuous relay of the Chinese nation for thousands of years, and it is also the simple expectation of people for a better life from ancient times to the present.
The Communist Party of China clearly stated that by the 100th anniversary of the founding of the party, it will fully build a moderately prosperous society at a higher level that will benefit more than one billion people.
"A well-off is not well-off, the key is the fellow villagers, and the key is whether the poor fellow villagers can get rid of poverty," Xi Jinping emphasized.
At the end of 2012, the current situation of nearly 100 million impoverished people in China at that time became a "hard bone" for realizing the dream of a well-off society.
To this end, the CCP launched an 8-year “battle” to declare war on poverty.
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China has lifted more than 10 million people out of poverty every year, almost equal to the population of a medium-sized country, creating a miracle in the history of human poverty reduction.
When the century-old party meets the millennium well-off society, the first century-old goal will be realized as scheduled.
China has built a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way, and historically solved the problem of absolute poverty.
In this process, China's poverty reduction population accounted for more than 70% of the global poverty reduction population during the same period, which significantly reduced the world's poor population and created a Chinese sample of poverty reduction and governance.
Realizing the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way as scheduled is the epitome of the development of the Party and the country since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
In the past ten years, China has solved many difficult problems that it has long wanted to solve but failed to solve, and accomplished many major things that it wanted to do but failed to accomplish in the past.
Everything in the past is a prologue.
China will continue to move forward firmly on the road to achieve the second centenary goal, and people have given a higher definition to a better life.
"Comprehensively deepening reforms must be based on the promotion of social fairness and justice and the improvement of people's well-being." As Xi Jinping said, as the main contradiction in Chinese society has transformed into the people's growing needs for a better life and unbalanced and inadequate development The contradiction between the two, reform is the key to solving this contradiction.
Back in time 10 years ago, although China was the second largest economy in the world at that time, a series of deep-seated contradictions accumulated during the long-term rapid economic growth.
Although it is not easy to break through the barriers of ideological concepts and the barriers of solidified interests, the reform in the critical period and the deep-water area is to "dare to bite the hard bones and dare to step into the dangerous shoal". importance.
It is precisely because of this that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the CCP has further demonstrated its ambition to "carry out the reform to the end".
In 2013, the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee sounded the clarion call for comprehensively deepening the reform, showing the "general goal" and "general roadmap".
Subsequently, a special reform agency was set up at the highest level of the central government, and Xi Jinping personally took command, paying special attention to "further touching on the adjustment of the deep-seated interest pattern and the reform of the institutional system."
On the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, the Third Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China deployed to deepen the reform of party and state institutions.
The scale of this profound change, the breadth of coverage, and the depth of interests involved are unprecedented, providing institutional support and guarantee for the comprehensive deepening of the reform.
At the historical juncture of the "two centenary goals", the CCP has set the pulse for further reforms in the new stage through continuous actions.
To the outside world, a new journey has begun, and the pace of China's reform will never stop.
The process of continuously realizing the people's yearning for a better life is not smooth and easy.
In 2020, the sudden new crown pneumonia epidemic has become an "additional test question" for the CCP's governance.
In the anti-epidemic exam, "people first, life first" is the background color of "China's answer sheet".
Guaranteeing life and health is the foundation of pursuing a better life, and this is also the value yardstick that China has always adhered to in the face of the impact of the epidemic.
"Put the safety and health of the people first." From a 30-hour-old baby to a 108-year-old man, every infected person will not be missed, and every life will not be given up.
Each touching detail interprets the concept of the supremacy of the people.
From the requirement to minimize the infection rate and fatality rate, to the rapid expansion of admission beds, and the continuous optimization of diagnosis and treatment plans, vivid facts show the mission of facing the big test.
History is always more revealing at special moments.
Realizing the people's yearning for a better life constitutes the most significant logical line of China's development in the past 10 years.
On the new journey, this will continue to be the goal that China will always anchor in the future.
And this determination may be best summed up in the words of Xi Jinping's New Year's message in 2022 - what the people worry about, I will read it; what the people hope for, I will do it.
