Xi Jinping's Reply to Young Scholars Returning from Studying in Nanjing University

Young scholars returning from Nanjing University:


I am very pleased to learn that you have followed the example of the older generation of scientists such as Li Siguang and Cheng Kaijia, and returned to China to join the cause of science and education.

On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the founding of Nanjing University, I would like to extend my warm congratulations and sincere greetings to all of you, teachers, students, staff, and alumni!

  In your letter, you stated that it is a blessing to be born in a great era, and that young people who have returned from studying abroad should have "national affairs" in their hearts and shoulder "national responsibilities". These words are well said.

I hope that comrades will vigorously carry forward the glorious tradition of studying abroad to serve the country, take serving the country and serving the people as the conscious pursuit, and make great achievements in adhering to morality and cultivating people, promoting scientific and technological self-reliance and self-improvement, and strive to set an example in strengthening cultural self-confidence and telling Chinese stories well. , to actively contribute wisdom and strength to building a modern socialist country in an all-round way and realizing the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!

Xi Jinping
