The CPC, which celebrates its 90th founding anniversary this year, led the Chinese people in a 28-year struggle before the founding of the People's Republic in 1949, and, in the glorious 62 years since, the Chinese people have made a miracle in building and developing the nation, said Jia.

"We'll never forget compatriots living in Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and overseas, who have stood together and shared the happiness and woe of the Chinese people from different ethnic groups, regardless of the situation," he said.

Jia thanked the leaders and governments of Hong Kong and Macao for what they have accomplished since the two SARs returned to the arms of the motherland in 1997 and 1999, respectively.

In securing the central government's continued assistance to the two SAR governments, Jia expressed his strong support for further upgrading the advantages of Hong Kong and Macao in competitiveness, fostering newly emerging industries, and deepening their cooperation with the mainland.
