In his important speech at the closing session of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress, General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that the baton of building a strong country and national rejuvenation has historically fallen on our generation.

Building a strong country and rejuvenating the nation have been the long-cherished aspirations of the Chinese people since modern times. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the Chinese nation, with a history of more than 5,000 years of civilization, has created countless splendors in history and experienced many tribulations. Since modern times, China has gradually become a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society, suffering from bullying, fragmentation, frequent wars and misery by the great powers.

The Chinese nation has been delayed by various internal and external troubles for too long, and we have always had an extraordinary sense of urgency and a sense of the times. Since its birth, the Communist Party of China has established seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation of the Chinese nation as its original mission. Over the past 100 years, generations of Chinese Communists have forged ahead toward the same goal. The history of struggle of the Chinese Communists is a magnificent historical relay race spanning a century.

A generation has a long march of a generation, and a generation has a generation of responsibility. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the baton of history has been handed to the Chinese Communists with Comrade Xi Jinping as the main representative.

The period from 2012 to 2022 is a decade of vigorous efforts.

The Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core summed up practice and looked forward to the future, profoundly answered the major questions of the times of what kind of socialism with Chinese characteristics to adhere to and develop in the new era, and how to adhere to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics, formed Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and the Party and the country's cause has made historic achievements and changes, and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has entered an irreversible historical process.

History profoundly proves that we have achieved a good result in this stick. At the same time, a new journey has begun, as General Secretary Xi Jinping said: "Time does not wait for anyone!" History does not wait for anyone! Time belongs to the Endeavour! History belongs to the Endeavour! ”

From now until the middle of this century, comprehensively building a modern and powerful socialist country and comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the central task of the whole party and the people of the whole country. We must race against time and move forward with history.
