xi jinping joins a group discussion with delegates from south china's guangxi zhuang autonomous region who are attending the 20th cpc national congress in beijing, oct 17, 2022. ju peng/xie huanchi/xinhua
in his report on sunday, xi used a special chapter to map out a chinese path to modernization, which he said is more characterized by features that are unique to the chinese context.
he said in the report that china has entered a period of development in which strategic opportunities, risks and challenges are concurrent and uncertainties and unforeseen factors are rising.
he told the delegates on monday that chinese modernization is rooted in china and is suited to the country's realities.
china should always base its national development objectives on its own strengths and gain a firm grasp over the future of its development and progress, he said.
xi mentioned the decadelong efforts led by the cpc central committee in exercising strict governance over the party and launching an unprecedented fight against corruption, a campaign that saw 553 high-ranking officials being investigated.
the cpc must make constant efforts in furthering its self-reform to ensure that the party will never change its nature, its conviction, or its character and forever serve as the strong core of leadership in building socialism with chinese characteristics, he said.
only unity can lead to victory, and working hard is the only pathway to success, xi said, adding that the most important task right now is to work hard to ensure the solid implementation of major decisions and plans made during the 20th cpc national congress.
