On November 29, 2012, Xi, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said “realizing the great renewal of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream for the Chinese nation in modern history” when he visited “The Road Toward Renewal” exhibition in Beijing along with other members of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.
Xi shares ‘Chinese dream’
Newly elected Chinese president Xi Jinping on March 17 underlined the importance of sharing the “Chinese dream” with everyone in the country during the closing ceremony of the first session of the 12th National People’s Congress, following the installation of the new leadership.
During his keynote speech delivered to the country’s top legislature, Xi said the Chinese dream “is a dream of the whole nation, as well as of every individual,” noting that all Chinese deserve “common opportunities to enjoy a wonderful life.”
To realize this dream, China must adhere to socialism with Chinese characteristics while fostering the “Chinese spirit” and uniting the people as a form of “Chinese strength,” said Xi, who was elected president on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Premier Li Keqiang also pledged to deepen comprehensive reforms and allow all the people in the country to share in the dividends of reforms.
