BEIJING, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- China has, through generations' efforts, laid down solid foundations for the nation's rejuvenation, opening up bright prospects for the greatest dream in the country's modern history.
Members of the seven-seat Political Bureau of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee earlier this week visited an exhibition on the ups and downs of China on the road of national revival since 1840.
As a major group activity for the new CPC helmsmen outside of the Great Hall of the People since they were elected about half a month ago, the symbolic visit sent the message that the ruling Party will keep in mind its mission and responsibility.
The CPC has the resolve and confidence in uniting and leading people of all ethnic groups in China to realize the Chinese dream. And the Party has every confidence in its path, theories and system.
Over the past 10 years, China has risen from the world's sixth to second-largest economy. And the country has undergone historic changes as its economic strength, people's living standards, overall national strength and international competitiveness have been enhanced substantially.
China has never been so close to realizing the goal of the nation's great renewal.
History has taught a lesson that it was through the ceaseless struggle and arduous work of one generation after the other that the Chinese nation has finally been able to embrace the twilight of revival.
It is an unprecedented mission in the history of the mankind to build a developing country with 1.3 billion population into a modern country and at the same time realize the nation's rejuvenation.
China faces many severe challenges and difficulties at present from vexations at its peaceful rise, pressure from economic and social adjustment, and the country's overall development.
Under the new conditions, the ruling CPC also endures risks and pressing problems within the Party that need to be resolved, especially those concerning corruption, being divorced from the people, going through formalities and bureaucracy caused by some Party officials.
All these problems entail the ruling Party to carry on the past and forge ahead into the future and individuals to be realistic and pragmatic and toil in their daily work.
It is the people who have created history, and the people are the source of China's strength. When all the people are united as one, an awesome power will be created and all difficulties will be overcome.
The Chinese are the architect of their own fate and they will create a better life with their own efforts.
Empty talks lead a country astray, while hard work sees nations prosper.
As long as the Party and the Chinese people stick to the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics and keep doing practical jobs, the nation's great renewal, which will no longer be an unattainable dream, will surely become reality.
