The general secretary's cordial concern is a great encouragement to the vast number of workers on the national propaganda, ideological, and cultural front, and will certainly encourage everyone to maintain an unremitting mental state, a high-spirited spiritual outlook, and push the building of a socialist cultural power to a new level.
General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech at the symposium on cultural inheritance and development is the ideological guidance and action guide for promoting cultural prosperity, building a cultural power, and striving to build a modern civilization of the Chinese nation in the new era and new journey. This time, General Secretary Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the first Cultural Power Construction Summit Forum, which fully reflects the great importance that the General Secretary attaches to cultural construction. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping, with firm cultural self-confidence and a high degree of cultural consciousness, has issued a series of important expositions on cultural construction and put forward a series of new ideas, new views and new theories, effectively promoting the construction of a socialist cultural power to take solid steps. At a new starting point, we should focus on the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, bravely undertake a new cultural mission, show new achievements in promoting cultural prosperity, building a culturally powerful country, and building a modern civilization of the Chinese nation, and contribute to the modernization of building a coordinated material civilization and spiritual civilization.
The theme of the first Summit Forum on Building a Cultural Power was "Promoting Cultural Self-Confidence and Self-Improvement and Promoting Exchanges and Mutual Learning among Civilizations". Cultural self-confidence is a more basic, broader, and deeper self-confidence. We must strengthen cultural self-confidence, persist in following our own path, base ourselves on the great historical practice and contemporary practice of the Chinese nation, sum up China's experience with Chinese principles, elevate China's experience to Chinese theory, and realize spiritual independence; It is necessary to uphold openness and inclusiveness, adhere to the Sinicization of Marxism, inherit and develop the excellent traditional Chinese culture, promote the localization of foreign culture, and constantly cultivate and create socialist culture with Chinese characteristics in the new era; It is necessary to adhere to the integrity and innovation, and continue the historical context and compose a contemporary chapter with the upright and vigorous spirit of upright innovation.
"Civilizations communicate because of diversity, learn from each other through exchanges, and develop because of mutual learning." With a broad historical perspective, General Secretary Xi Jinping profoundly explained the logical chain of the development of human civilization from the perspective of civilization exchanges and mutual learning. When we aspire to build a modern civilization of the Chinese nation, we must have a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the history of the Chinese civilization and profoundly understand from historical sources that the Chinese civilization is a civilization born on the land of China, and it is also a civilization formed through continuous exchanges and mutual learning with other civilizations. Only through exchanges and mutual learning can civilization be full of vitality. To create a new brilliance of Chinese culture, it is necessary to persist in keeping the world in mind, expand the world's vision, carry out exchanges and mutual learning with other civilizations in the world with a confident, open, respectful and inclusive attitude, and learn from and absorb all the outstanding civilization achievements of mankind with a broad mind.
Culture rejuvenates the country and prosper, culture is strong, and the nation is strong. We must conscientiously study and implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's series of important expositions on cultural construction, especially the spirit of the General Secretary's important speech at the symposium on cultural inheritance and development, undertake the mission, work hard, build a socialist cultural power around raising the flag, gathering the hearts of the people, educating new people, rejuvenating culture, and displaying the image, continuously enhance the cultural self-confidence of the whole party and the people of all ethnic groups in the country, further enhance the cohesion and centripetal force of the whole society, and provide rich cultural nourishment, strong ideological guarantee and strong spiritual strength for the construction of a strong country and national rejuvenation.
