Have confidence, seize opportunity and make success

When I was waiting for a haircut in a barbershop, I saw a deputy of the National People's Congress (NPC) talking about the aging population on TV. The young barber man said, "More aged people can provide more opportunity. I am planning to go back to my hometown, open a barbershop there and cut hair for aged people." The boy may still have a long way to realize this goal, but his future is promising because he has seen an opportunity and he has confidence.

At two sessions where people discuss national affairs and the development, many NPC members have reiterated "sense of opportunity." No matter the eastern region taking the lead in the development or the western region catching up, no matter they are senior local governmental officials or leaders of industries and enterprises, they all have sensed favorable elements in different areas in different development phases. The NPC member and the Secretary of the Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee Zhao Hongzhu regards the economic transformation as an opportunity of "going forward steadily but firmly." The Secretary of the Gansu Provincial Party Committee Wang Sanyun believes that the "combination of policies" is the largest opportunity faced by the province.

From the development blueprint of a province to the personal plan of a barber, favorable elements could be found. Therefore, being able to clarify the development direction and find development opportunities is the vigor of the current China. Like what some western media said, the people of China are filled with optimistic confidence. The confidence of a country or a society is actually the combination of the confidences of countless individuals. When everyone is filled with strong confidence, the whole country will be able have a powerful "energy of confidence."

We have reasons to be self-confident. The macroeconomic data in the government work report, such as the economic growth rate which is more than 9 percent, the urbanization rate which is more than 50 percent, the sustained increase of the people's income and the vigorous developments of various social undertakings, are undoubtedly the reflections of the "admirable huge potential of China." Huge domestic market, rich manpower resources, continuously strengthening technological innovation ability and continuously accelerating pace of the transformation have all offered favorable conditions for the huge ship of China to continue sailing forward in the sea and showed China's administrative level and national strength.

We have reasons to be self-confident. During the NPC and CPPCC period, the pinyin "Liang Hui" (meaning the NPC and CPPCC) have turned into a hot phrase in foreign media. Under the spotlight, the economic and policy signals given by the NPC and CPPCC are attracting attention of the whole world.
