“The original aspiration and the mission of Chinese Communists is to seek happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. This original aspiration, this mission, is what inspires Chinese Communists to advance.”

What General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Xi Jinping remarked at the opening ceremony of the 19th National Congress of the CPC well explained the mission of the Party.

In the new era, Xi called all members of the CPC to remain true to their original aspiration and keep their mission firmly in mind.

Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, historic achievements have been created by hundreds of millions of Chinese people under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi at the core. The Chinese nation has achieved a tremendous transformation: it has stood up, grown rich, and is becoming influential.

Today, as the Fuxing bullet trains are running as fast as 350 kilometers per hour and have become forerunners in the global high-speed rail industry, the Chinese people are closer, more confident, and more capable than ever before of truly attaining the goal of national rejuvenation.

History, which has witnessed the rise and fall of countries, proves that a nation faces the most immense pressure in two periods. These come both when it is weak and poor and also when it is embracing development and revitalization.

China is now transitioning from a big country into a strong one, so it is facing increasing pressure from both inside and outside. However, what it has achieved in the past 70 years makes it proud rather than self-contented, and the country will never sit idle and brag. What it still needs to do next is to create more significant miracles with its strong spirits.

The Chinese Dream proposed by Xi resonates in the minds of hundreds of millions of Chinese people, and has become the most influential notion to date in Chinese society.

Xi has repeatedly stressed that the Chinese Dream, after all, is the dream of the people. History shows that the personal future and destiny of each individual are closely connected with the future of the country.

Founded in 1949, the People's Republic of China started the great course of reform and opening-up in 1978 and entered the period of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era in 2012. If these years mark important time nodes China has experienced on its voyage of revitalization, then the three greater goals to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2020, to basically realize modernization by 2035, and to make China a great modern socialist country in every dimension by the middle of this century, are the essential coordinates in the country’s future trip to chase its dreams.

By reaching the targets it has set and started off toward following targets, China is gradually approaching the final destination of its great national rejuvenation.

Standing at a new starting point of history, China must undergo a great struggle to realize its great dream.

The founding of the CPC and the People's Republic of China, the implementation of reform and opening-up, and the promotion of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era all emerged, developed and gained strength in struggles.

The world is undergoing profound changes, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is in a decisive stage. As Xi always says, achieving national rejuvenation will be no walk in the park. In the future, China will only face more and more complex challenges. Risks cannot defeat the country, and what the country must keep is its struggling spirit.

If the CPC is to unite and lead the people to effectively respond to significant challenges, withstand major risks, overcome significant obstacles, and address major conflicts, it must have a strong determination to struggle.

Everyone in the Party must do more to uphold Party leadership and the Chinese socialist system, and resolutely oppose all statements and actions that undermine, distort, or negate them. They must do more to protect people’s interests, and firmly oppose all moves that damage their interests or put distance between the Party and the people. They must do more to channel their energies toward the contemporary current of reform and innovation, and address deep-rooted problems determined to resolve. They must do more to safeguard China’s sovereignty, security, and development interests, and staunchly oppose all attempts to split China or undermine its ethnic unity and social harmony and stability. They must do more to guard against all kinds of risks and work determinedly to prevail over every political, economic, cultural, social, and natural difficulty and challenge.

Never in history has a political party in China gathered so many progressives nor had such a sound and broad organization like the CPC did. The CPC is good at summarizing its experiences and treats its mistakes seriously. It has established and adhered to correct theories and paths and made enormous sacrifices for the Chinese nation during the protracted and arduous struggle. The Party has made so many achievements and miracles.

The CPC’s long-term governance of China is in line with the fundamental interests of the people and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and a sure choice of China both in the past and at present.

The CPC has over 90 million members and 4.6 million primary-level Party organizations and is a party that governs China on a long-term basis. Therefore its self-construction plays a decisive role in the fate and future of the Party and the country.
