A review of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China

What are the governing ideas of China's new leadership? In which direction is China heading? Will China continue its reform and opening-up policy? What is the basis of China's foreign policy? Many people hope to find answers to these questions.

Answers can be found in the new book The Governance of China by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and president of China. The book contains 79 of his speeches in 18 chapters, together with 45 photos about his work and personal life. The book sheds light on the approach of the new leadership to the governance of China.

Consensus with the Chinese Dream

Xi proposed the Chinese Dream of the rejuvenation of Chinese nation when visiting "The Road to Rejuvenation" exhibition at the National Museum of China.

Due to profound changes in the country's economic and social life and the evolution in the public mindset, people from different regions, social strata, and fields of endeavor naturally do not think alike. Discord could undermine development, and therefore the consensus is a pressing need.

To find consensus, the most important is to identify the common goal. Since the 1840s, the Chinese people have successively striven towards and made sacrifices for one goal – the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. This dream resonates in every Chinese heart and becomes the common aspiration of all the Chinese in and outside the country.

The Chinese Dream, says Xi, in essence means prosperity for the country, rejuvenation of the nation, and happiness for the people. It is the dream of the country, of the nation, and of every Chinese, because it brings together the interests of the nation and of individual citizens.
