As a great social revolution, reform and opening up not only brings forth rapid economic development, people’s living standards’ improvement and international influence expansion, but also changes spirits of nation and people deeply, and boosts self-confidence, self-esteem and self-reliance of Chinese people. Our confidence in the path, theory, system, and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics was established in the historic process of reform and opening up. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, Central Committee, with Xi Jinping as its core, hold high banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics and put forward a series of new concepts, new ideas and new judgments when comprehensively deepening reform. A set of strategic deployments have been implemented and made historic achievements, which consolidate Chinese people’s confidence in path, theory, system and culture in new era. 


China should clear its historic position and strengthen confidence in path. Path determines direction that determines fate. Since reform and opening up, socialism with Chinese characteristics has been the theme of all theories and practices of the Party and it is also valuable achievements by arduous efforts of the Party and Chinese people. The great practice of reform and opening up enables socialist undertakings to make new progress. With decades of hard work, socialism with Chinese characteristics has crossed the threshold into a new era. This is a new historic juncture in China's development. This new era will be an era of building on past successes to further advance our cause, and of continuing in a new historical context to strive for the success of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Chinese people will leave no stone unturned to adhere to the socialist path with Chinese characteristics. 


We should innovate guidance and increase confidence in theory. Great practice is always under the guidance of great theory. In the practise of reform and opening up, our Party has consistently promoted the combination of basic tenets of Marxism-Leninism and the Chinese actual practice; and it has established Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Theory of Three Representatives, the Scientific Outlook on Development. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core,, has systematically addressed the major questions in new era—what kind of socialism with Chinese characteristics in new era to uphold and develop and how to uphold and develop it, thus giving shape to Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

China should adhere to self-improvement and strengthen confidence in system. The system of socialism with Chinese characteristics provides the fundamental institutional guarantee for orderly progress in reform and opening up. Comrade Xi Jinping said, “ today, one of the significant historic missions before us is to carry forward a more mature socialist system and provide a more comprehensive, stable and effective system for the development of the Party and country, for people’s well-being, for social stability and harmony as well as the long-term stability of a country. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the Central Committee, with comrade Xi Jinping as its core, makes it clear that the overall goal of deepening reform in every field is to improve and develop the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and modernize China's system and capacity for governance; we should also conduct scientific design and innovation of institution; we should give full play to advantages and potentials of socialist system so as to improve Chinese people’s confidence in the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics. 


We should develop a strong socialist culture in China and strengthen cultural confidence. Comrade Xi Jinping said, “Culture is a country and nation’s soul. Our country will thrive only if our culture thrives, and our nation will be strong only if our culture is strong. Without full confidence in our culture, without a rich and prosperous culture, the Chinese nation will not be able to rejuvenate itself”. Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, under the guidance of Central Committee, with the comrade Xi Jinping as the core, cultural system is continuously being deepened; the level standardization and equalization of basic public services are increased; cultural undertakings and industry are thriving; Chinese fine traditional culture, revolutionary culture and advanced socialist culture with Chinese Characteristics are widely spread; socialist core values have been embraced by our people; international cultural communications are increasingly enhanced; The international influence of Chinese culture has increased significantly. The firm steps for a strong socialist culture will make Chinese people more confident.
