China will continue with reforms, peaceful development: President Xi


17:27, March 20, 2013

BEIJING, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday that the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) will never stop reforms and opening-up, and as always, China will stick to the path of peaceful development despite its growing economic might.

Xi made the pledge in a joint interview with Xinhua and other media outlets from BRICS countries before his first foreign visit as China's head of state.


While answering a question from Russia's ITAR-TASS news agency, Xi said that in order to lead the people to achieve greater national development, the CPC must strengthen party building, maintain close ties with the people, steadily improve its performance and governance and fight corruption.

"Reform and opening-up is the defining feature and source of vitality of today's China," Xi said. "Without reform and opening-up, China would not have come this far, nor will we have a brighter future."

The president vowed to make new reform breakthroughs so as to open up new prospects for development, saying that China will enhance top-level design and overall planning, and pursue a "balanced way" in structural reforms.

He pledged to continue to develop and improve socialism with Chinese characteristics to keep in line with the changing world, as it is not possible for "a development model" to "stay forever the same."

He also stressed that China will not copy the development model of any other country, while drawing on the fine achievements of all civilizations.
