President Xi Jinping delivered a New Year's message in 2023
Hello everyone! 2023 is coming, and I would like to extend my best wishes for the New Year to everyone in Beijing!
In 2022, we successfully held the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, drawing a grand blueprint for comprehensively building a socialist modern country and promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with Chinese-style modernization, sounding the clarion call of the times for a new journey.
my country continues to maintain its status as the world's second largest economy, with a steady economic development, and the annual GDP is expected to exceed 120 trillion yuan. In the face of the global food crisis, my country's grain production has achieved "nineteen consecutive harvests", and the Chinese people's jobs have become more secure. We have consolidated the achievements of poverty alleviation, comprehensively promoted rural revitalization, adopted a series of measures such as tax cuts and fee reductions to relieve difficulties for enterprises, and focused on solving the urgent problems and worries of the people.
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, we have always put the people first and life first, adhered to scientific and precise prevention and control, optimized and adjusted prevention and control measures according to the time and situation, and maximized the protection of people's life safety and health. The broad masses of cadres and the masses, especially medical staff and grassroots workers, are not afraid of hardships and persevere with courage. After arduous efforts, we have overcome unprecedented difficulties and challenges, which are not easy for everyone. At present, the prevention and control of the epidemic has entered a new stage. When it is still struggling, everyone is working hard with perseverance, and the dawn is ahead. Let's work harder, persistence means victory, and unity means victory.
In 2022, Comrade Jiang Zemin left us. We deeply cherish the memory of his great achievements and noble demeanor, and cherish the precious spiritual wealth left by him. We must inherit his legacy and continue to advance the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
The long river of history is magnificent, and generations of people have worked hard to create today's China.
Today's China is a China where dreams come true one after another. The Beijing Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympics were successfully held, and ice and snow athletes galloped on the field and achieved impressive results. Shenzhou 13, 14, and 15 took off in relay, China's space station was fully completed, and our "space home" traveled to the sky. The People's Army celebrates its 95th birthday, and the officers and soldiers are striding forward on the journey of strengthening the army. The third aircraft carrier "Fujian" was launched, the first C919 large aircraft was officially delivered, and the Baihetan Hydropower Station was fully put into operation... All these are condensed with the hard work and sweat of countless people. Little sparks, converging into a torch, this is China's power!
Today's China is a China full of vitality. The free trade pilot zones and the Hainan Free Trade Port are booming, the coastal areas are actively innovating, the central and western regions are accelerating development, the revitalization of the Northeast is gaining momentum, and the border areas are prospering and enriching the people. China's economy has strong resilience, great potential and vitality, and its long-term fundamentals remain unchanged. As long as we have firm confidence and strive for steady progress, we will be able to achieve our set goals. I went to Hong Kong this year, and I am very pleased to see that Hong Kong will be governed and prosperous. By unswervingly implementing "one country, two systems", Hong Kong and Macau will surely enjoy long-term prosperity and stability.
Today's China is a China that continues the national spirit. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, droughts, wildfires and some security incidents that occurred this year made people worry and sad, but the scenes of giving up their lives for righteousness and helping each other were deeply moving, and the deeds of heroes will always be engraved in our hearts. Whenever we bid farewell to the old and welcome the new, we always think of the awe-inspiring spirit inherited by the Chinese nation for thousands of years, and double our confidence in moving forward.
Today's China is a China that is closely connected with the world. This year, I met many old and new friends in Beijing, and I also went abroad to speak about China's proposition. The century-old changes are accelerating, and the world is not peaceful. We always cherish peace and development, always cherish friends and partners, firmly stand on the right side of history and the progress of human civilization, and strive to contribute Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions to the cause of human peace and development.
After the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, my colleagues and I went to Yan'an to relive the glorious years when the Party Central Committee overcame rare difficulties in the Yan'an period, and to feel the spiritual strength of the older generation of Communists. I often say that through hardships and hardships, you will succeed in success. The Communist Party of China has weathered the wind and rain for a hundred years, and overcome all obstacles, and the journey has been so arduous and great. We must go forward indomitably and fight tenaciously to make China a better tomorrow.
Tomorrow's China, strive to create miracles. Su Shi has a saying: "To commit to the most difficult and to pursue the farthest", which means "to attack the most difficult place and pursue the most ambitious goal". Although the road is long, it will come soon; though it is difficult, it will be done. As long as you have the ambition of Yugong to move mountains, the perseverance to wear water through rocks, keep your feet on the ground, work hard, and accumulate steps even thousands of miles, you will be able to turn the grand goal into a beautiful reality.
In tomorrow's China, strength comes from unity. China is such a big country that different people have different demands and different views on the same matter. This is normal, and consensus must be built through communication and consultation. With more than 1.4 billion Chinese people thinking in one direction and working hard in one direction, there is nothing that cannot be done or hurdles that cannot be overcome. A family on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. I sincerely hope that compatriots on both sides of the strait will meet each other halfway and go hand in hand to create the long-term well-being of the Chinese nation.
Tomorrow's China, hope is pinned on the youth. The prosperity of the youth leads to the prosperity of the country, and China's development depends on the courage and responsibility of the young people. Youth is full of vigor, and youth breeds hope. The majority of young people should cultivate their family and country feelings, cultivate their enterprising character, inspire their youth with a fighting attitude, and live up to the times and the years of China.
At this moment, many people are still working hard, everyone has worked hard! The bell of the new year is about to ring, let us welcome the first ray of sunshine in 2023 with a good yearning for the future.
I wish the motherland prosperity, prosperity and peace for the people! I wish the world peace, beauty, happiness and tranquility! I wish you all a happy new year and all your wishes come true!
