BEIJING. – “The creativity, cohesion and effectiveness.”
If you read the 19th CPC Congress report carefully, you will find that the Communist Party of China has put creativity in the first place when describing its governing capacity in the past five years. The creativity is reflected, for the most part, in the party’s theoretical innovation, which is reflected in the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. The updated charter is the soul and the highlight of the report.
“A nation that wants to climb the pinnacles of science cannot possibly manage without theoretical thought,” said Friedrich Engels. The Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era has envisaged over the important change of Chinese society’s major contradiction. It is as significant as the theory of Primary Stage of Socialism to China, which was brought up on the 13th CPC National Congress in 1987. The general plan of “Two 15 years” of socialist modernization is as strategically important as the Three-Step Development Strategy brought up in the last century. It is fair to say that Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era is the latest achievement in adapting Marxism to the Chinese context, following the success of the Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory.
China has contributed more than 30 percent of global economic growth, surpassing the contributions made by the United States, the Eurozone, and Japan combined, making China the key power in pushing for the world’s economic prosperity. The reason behind China’s historical reforms and significant achievements in the past five years is the instruction given by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, which broadened our horizon, deepened our thoughts and received worldwide attention.
Lucian Pye, a leading China scholar in the U.S., described China as a “civilization pretending to be a state”. From regaining dignity to becoming prosperous and strong, the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation does not only mean the improvement of comprehensive national strength, but also rebirth of an ancient civilization and civilized rise of values and political systems. Using new theory to lead the new era, the Marxism in the 21th century is sure to demonstrate stronger power and create convincing impact. – People’s Daily, China
