Hello, everyone! The year 2023 is just around the corner. From Beijing, I would like to extend my best New Year wishes to all of you.
In 2022, we successfully convened the 20th CPC National Congress and drew up a blueprint for comprehensively building a modern socialist country and promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation through Chinese-style modernization, sounding the clarinet of our times for a new journey.
China continues to maintain its position as the world’s second largest economy and enjoys steady economic growth, with its annual GDP expected to exceed 120 trillion yuan. In the face of the global food crisis, China’s grain production has reached nineteen consecutive harvests, and the Chinese people are more secure in their rice bowl. We consolidated our achievements in poverty alleviation, comprehensively promoted rural revitalization, and adopted a series of measures, including tax and fee cuts, to ease the difficulties faced by enterprises and to address the urgent needs of the people.
Today’s China has been created by the struggle of generation after generation.
Today’s China is a country where dreams come true one after another. The Beijing Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games were successfully held, and ice and snow athletes galloped in the competition and made remarkable achievements. Shenzhou 13, 14 and 15 took off in relay, China’s space station was fully completed, and our “home in space” took to the sky. As the People’s Armed Forces celebrate their 95th birthday, officers and soldiers are forging ahead on their great journey to strengthen the army. The third aircraft carrier Fujian was launched, the first C919 aircraft was officially delivered, and Baihetan Hydropower Station went into full operation. All this, condensation countless people’s hard work and sweat. A little spark, a torch, this is the power of China!
Today’s China is full of vitality. Pilot trade zones and the Hainan Free Trade Port are thriving, coastal areas are innovating vigorously, the central and western regions are developing at a faster pace, the revitalization of the northeast is in the pipeline, and border areas are revitalizing and enriching the people. The Chinese economy is resilient, has great potential and is full of vitality. The fundamentals for long-term growth remain unchanged. As long as we have confidence and seek progress while maintaining stability, we will be able to achieve our set goals. When I visited Hong Kong this year, I was very pleased to see that Hong Kong will be governed and revitalized. With unswerving implementation of “one country, two systems”, Hong Kong and Macao will enjoy long-term prosperity and stability.
The hope of tomorrow’s China lies in its youth. When young people prosper, a country prospers. China’s development depends on the commitment of young people. Youth is full of vigor, youth gives birth to hope. The majority of young people should cultivate the feelings of home and country, self-restraint and enterprising character, to strive for the attitude of youth, do not live up to The Times, do not live up to China.
At this moment, many people are still working hard and busy, everyone hard! The New Year’s bell is about to ring. Let’s welcome the first ray of sunshine in 2023 together with a good yearning for the future.
I wish the motherland prosperity, peace and prosperity! Wish the world peace, happiness and tranquility! I wish you all a happy and successful New Year!
