World also needs ‘Chinese Dream’

(People's Daily Online)

07:57, December 05, 2012

"Rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has been the greatest Chinese dream in modern times since the Opium Wars," Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said when he visited “The Road toward Renewal” exhibition on Nov. 29. It is the first time that Xi has referred to the "Chinese Dream." Both Chinese people and the world need the "Chinese Dream."

People all over the world have their own dreams, so do the Chinese. During the revolutionary period, the dream of people with lofty ideals was to build an independent, prosperous and democratic new China. Since implementation of the Reform and Opening up, China has achieved significant development, which is attributed to tremendous contribution of many hard-working Chinese people. However, we have to admit that the pursuit of money has spilled over into many aspects of Chinese society. The crises of faith, integrity and credibility have occurred in China, which is closely related to people's lack of dreams, pursuits and grand goals.

"Chinese Dream" has three distinct characteristics:

Firstly, it is shared by a large number of people. The rise of China means the rise of 1.3 billion Chinese people, which is an unprecedented event. The Reform and Opening-up to the outside world have provided a platform for generations of Chinese people to realize their dreams.

Secondly, it covers all walks of life. China’s modernization drive is a magnificent cause. Since the Reform and Opening-up to the outside world, a lot of eminent persons have emerged in different walks of life.
