The Chinese leadership has introduced innovative concepts and measures to ensure more encouraging prospects for development.

Xi has announced the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation. According to him, the essence of the Chinese Dream is to make the country prosperous and strong, rejuvenate the nation, and enable the people to lead happy lives. In the age of globalization, the Chinese Dream is connected to the dreams of people of other countries and will benefit not only the people of China, but people of other countries.

In pursuing reform, China has entered deep waters to face tough challenges. The book also documents the courage and wisdom that Xi and his colleagues have demonstrated in overcoming difficulties. Xi stresses that reform and opening up play the decisive role in determining the destiny of China. He vows to take challenges head-one and be daring to sail the rapids to advance the reform.

Last year, China produced a bold reform plan, timetable and roadmap, covering 15 sectors and involving 330 reform measures. Xi's revelation of the objectives, tasks and methods for comprehensive and deeper reform allows readers to see the difficulties and complexities of the current reform.

Much of the determination Xi has shown in tackling problems can be explained by his personal background. As a young man, he experienced the hardships of a rural life of hunger and shortage and later he did a number of jobs before becoming China's president. His experience has enhanced his understanding of national conditions and people's expectations.

He declares, "The people's wish of better lives is our goal." "In a nutshell, I will govern by serving the people and fulfilling responsibilities which fall on me."

The book document Xi's visits to poverty-stricken areas, where he heard local opinions, pinpointed their needs and emphasized the importance of promoting social fairness and justice.
