The Chinese Dream

Xi Jinping first explained his vision of the Chinese Dream on November 29, 2012, when visiting the exhibition “The Path to National Rejuvenation.” He pointed out that national rejuvenation has been the greatest dream of the Chinese people since the beginning of modern times. It is a dream that spans generations, a dream that reflects China’s national interests, and a dream embraced by every Chinese.

China will strive to complete the building of a moderately prosperous society by 2021, when the CPC celebrates its centenary, and to become a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful by 2049, when the People’s Republic marks its centenary. At this point the dream of national rejuvenation will have become reality.

In essence, the Chinese Dream is a commitment to bringing prosperity and happiness to the country, the nation and the people To make the dream come true, China must follow the its own path to development, elevate the Chinese spirit, and boost national cohesion. The Chinese Dream is a dream of peace, development, cooperation and prosperity for all, benefiting not only the Chinese people but also the people of the rest of the world.

The effort to realize the Chinese Dream will be meaningful only if it accords with the Chinese people’s yearning for a better life. To realize the Chinese Dream is a solemn promise the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping at its core has made to the whole nation. It is a political statement that embodies the historical responsibility and mission of the CPC and the state. It constitutes an important part of upholding and developing Chinese socialism in the new era.
