Comrades and friends, ladies and gentlemen,
The year of 2016 is about to end, and the New Year’s bell will be ringing. At this beautiful moment to bid farewell to the old and usher in the new, I wish to extend my New Year wishes to the people of all ethnic groups in China, to our compatriots in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the Macao Special Administrative Region, to our compatriots in Taiwan and overseas Chinese, as well as friends in other countries and regions in the world.
2016 has been an extraordinary year for the Chinese people. It has also been unforgettable.The 13th Five-Year Plan has got off to a great start. We have been actively practicing new development theories, accelerating the process of building up a moderately prosperous society, and pushing forward our economic growth to be at the forefront of the world. We have also been actively enhancing and deepening comprehensive reform. We have made significant strides in the supply-side structural reform. National defense and military reform have made major breakthroughs. The main framework of reform, like that of a house with “4 beams and 8 columns”, has been basically established in all areas. We also have been actively pushing forward the rule of law, deepening the reform in the judicial system, exerting full efforts to enhance judicial fairness, and protecting social fairness and justice. We have been pushing forward the strict discipline of the Communist Party of China, and continuing to resolutely strike “tigers” and swat “flies” involved in corruption. We have continued purifying the political environment, and the work style and thinking of the Party, politics and society continue to improve.
In 2016, the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope was completed and went into operation; the “Wukong” satellite has been in orbit for a year; the “Micius” Quantum Science Experimental Satellite was launched; the Shenzhou-11 manned spacecraft and the Tiangong-2 spacelab ventured into the universe; the Chinese Olympians performed well with valor and the Chinese Women’s Volleyball Team returned to the top of the Olympic podium after 12 years. Also, through reform, the citizenization process for those relocated from rural areas has become easier; schooling conditions have been improved for many children in poor areas; citizens can now get an identity card without returning to their original domicile; many people who for so long had no household registration have been officially registered; many people now have their own family doctors and each of the rivers will have a “river chief”. All this gives us great comfort and satisfaction.
In 2016, at the beautiful West Lake (in Hangzhou), we held the 11th G20 Summit. We shared China’s wisdom and proposals with the world, while displaying a magnificent image and impression of China to the world. The Belt and Road Initiative has speeded up its progress and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was also officially launched. We stick to the path of peaceful development. We will resolutely safeguard our territory and sovereignty as well as our maritime rights. No matter who seeks to make an issue of this, the Chinese people will never give way.
During the year, natural disasters and safety accidents in some places resulted in huge loss of lie, property and production. We deeply regret it. Several comrades in UN peacekeeping missions heroically sacrificed their precious lives for world peace. We feel their loss keenly and will take good care of their families.
In 2016, we solemnly celebrated the 95th anniversary of the Communist Party of China. We also commemorated the 80th anniversary of the victory of the Long March by the Chinese Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army. We will remember those pioneers who have made contributions to the people of China and all ethnic Chinese. We should not forget the original aspiration and will carry on.
Comrades and friends, ladies and gentlemen!
“The new moves on from the old every day without fail.” In the forthcoming 2017, the CPC will convene its 19th National Congress. We must continue our efforts in comprehensively building up a moderately prosperous society, comprehensively deepening reform, comprehensively strengthening the rule of law, and comprehensively strengthening Party discipline. Pie doesn’t fall from the sky and only hard efforts will make dreams come true.
No one should be left behind on the road to a moderately prosperous society! In the past year, more than 10 million people were lifted from poverty. For those who have been working hard on the frontline of eradicating poverty, thank you. You have my respect. At the very beginning of the New Year, what concerns me the most is those who are still in straitened circumstances. The deepest concern of my heart is how they fare and whether they will have a good New Year and a good Spring Festival. I also understand that some people still face challenges in employment, children’s education, health care and housing, and it is a bounden duty for the Party and government to solve those problems well. The whole Party and whole society should continue caring for and helping those who are living in poverty and difficulty. The fruits of reform and development will benefit more people and make people’s lives happier and fuller.
A united and shared aspiration from the top to the bottom will be invincible. Only if the 1.3 billion-plus people work together with one heart, the Party always stands with the people, and we roll up our sleeves and work with added energy, can we succeed in the Long March of our generation.
Comrades and friends, ladies and gentlemen!
China believes that everyone belongs to one family in a united world. The Chinese people not only hope for a good life for ourselves, we also wish a good life for people in other countries. Now, some countries and regions are still troubled by war and poverty. Disease and disaster have also been plaguing many people. I sincerely hope that international community will join hands and uphold the vision of a community of common destiny for mankind to make our planet more peaceful and more prosperous.
Let’s welcome the New Year’s bell with full confidence and high hopes!
Thank you all.
