II. Make New Advances in Building China into a Modern Socialist Country in All Respects under the Guiding Principles from the 20th CPC National Congress


At its 20th National Congress, the CPC put forward its missions and tasks in the new journey of the new era and worked out the blueprint for building China into a modern socialist country in all respects, sounding the trumpet of the times to march toward the Second Centenary Goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects. General Secretary Xi Jinping, as the core of the CPC Central Committee and of the Party as a whole, the leader of the people and the commander-in-chief of the military, continues to steer the majestic ship of socialism with Chinese characteristics. This represents the will of the CPC and the people and meets the expectations of all, and is the fortune of the country, the nation and the people. Fujian is an important birthplace and practitioner of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and the people of Fujian love, trust and follow General Secretary Xi from the bottom of their hearts. It is the noble mission, historical responsibility and urgent wish of the 41 million plus people of Fujian to answer the call of General Secretary Xi, and to assume our responsibility, strive to make a difference and contribute our share to promoting national rejuvenation along the Chinese path to modernization.


We have to forge loyalty to the CPC’s core based on the full understanding of the decisive significance of the Two Affirmations. We must strengthen our commitment to the Four Consciousnesses,[11] the Four-Sphere Confidence[12] and the Two Upholds. We must constantly improve our political acumen, understanding and capacity to deliver. We must maintain absolute loyalty to the CPC’s core in the purest Party spirit, always trust the CPC’s core with the firmest attitude, wholeheartedly support the CPC’s core with the sincerest feelings, and resolutely uphold the CPC’s core with the most powerful action. We must consciously gain an understanding of and implement the guiding principles from both the 20th CPC National Congress and General Secretary Xi Jinping’s major speeches, instructions, and comments on the work of Fujian while at the same time living by and carrying forward the important ideas and practices he created during his work in Fujian. We must effectively transform the deep love for the General Secretary into a powerful motivation for work, move forward in the direction he sets for us, and turn the blueprint he has drawn for us into reality with great determination.


We have to take up the responsibility for promoting the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in all respects along the Chinese path to modernization. We should firmly grasp the Chinese characteristics, essential requirements, major principles and strategic plans concerning the Chinese path to modernization. We must consider and promote the development of a new Fujian in the national context, and intensify efforts in conducting forward thinking and overall planning, and in making comprehensive progress. Giving play to our comparative advantages and highlighting the characteristics of Fujian, we must try out new things, forge new paths, lead the way, and assume great responsibilities. We must strive to make greater progress in accelerating the modernization of the economic system, better serve and integrate into the new development pattern, make greater strides in exploring new ways to promote integrated development with Taiwan, and achieve greater breakthroughs in creating a high-quality life. In doing so, we will add greater vitality to Chinese modernization and make sure that it plays a distinctive role in Fujian.


To pass new tests, we must uphold fundamental principles, and work together to break new ground. We must firmly believe in Marxism, strengthen our belief in socialism with Chinese characteristics, and become more confident in the realization of the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation. We must always use Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era to arm our minds, guide our practice and promote our work. We must always adhere to the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, and always stay united as “a piece of hard steel” under CPC leadership. We must keep breaking new ground, working hard, and delivering results. We must rise up to challenges and overcome them with tenacity. We are never to let up and will move forward in spite of challenges, and make every contribution to the endeavor of rejuvenating the Chinese nation and to the great cause of building socialism with Chinese characteristics.


To deliver a good performance in the next five years, we must do the following:


●    Adhere to Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era as a guide;


●    Gain an understanding of and implement all the guiding principles from the 20th CPC National Congress;


●    Fully implement the guiding principles from General Secretary Xi Jinping’s major speeches, instructions, and comments;


●    Uphold and strengthen overall CPC leadership;


●    Carry forward the great founding spirit of the CPC;


●    Ensure coordinated implementation of the five-sphere integrated plan and the four-pronged comprehensive strategy;


●    Take the new development stage into account, implement the new development philosophy, and serve and integrate into the new development pattern;


●    Work hard to meet the Four Requirements;


●    Strengthen technological innovation, improve the mix of industries, and increase the income of residents;


●    Deepen reforms with Fujian characteristics and build the core area of the Maritime Silk Road;


●    Accelerate the revitalization of the countryside and the development of old revolutionary base areas and former CPC Soviet areas;


●    Strengthen Digital Fujian, Maritime Fujian and eco-friendly Fujian;


●    Explore new ways to promote cross-Strait integrated development; and


●    Promote high-quality development in all respects;


All this will constitute our due contribution to building China into a modern socialist country in all respects.


1. Accelerate the modernization of the economic system to make Fujian richer and stronger


A modernized economic system underpins Chinese modernization, and is the only way to achieve high-quality development.

Support will be given to private businesses and entrepreneurs in terms of policy and public opinion to ease their concerns when driving innovation, managing their businesses, and making creations.

Science and technology have given wings to human progress and remain the key to future high-quality development.

Fujian will provide the best environment for talent who will in turn contribute to the development of the province.


3. Actively serve and integrate into the new development pattern, and strive to build a vibrant Fujian


What we have achieved so far in the development of Fujian is attributed to reform and opening-up, and the future of our province will also depend on reform and opening-up. We will promote high-standard opening-up through reform, and push for further reform through opening-up. We will accelerate the development of the important links and channels for promoting positive interplay between domestic and international economic flows. We will continue to deepen reform to promote systems integration.

5. Comprehensively enhance ecological conservation and strive to make Fujian more beautiful


Green is the distinctive color of Fujian and the pride of our people. We will remain committed to respecting, adapting to and accommodating nature.

We will fully promote green, low-carbon, and circular development, implement the comprehensive conservation strategy and the system of controlling the total amount and intensity of carbon emissions, and peak carbon emissions by field and industry step by step.

With good governance comes social stability, which in turn is a prerequisite for development. We will uphold the new development pattern underpinned by the new security pattern, accelerate the building of a high level of rule of law and security system, and make every effort to prevent risks, maintain security, ensure stability, and promote development. We will pursue a holistic approach to national security, resolutely maintain security of our political power, institutions, and ideology, and ensure the security of food, energy resources, cyberspace, finance, and important industrial and supply chains.
