The Chinese leader stressed that the main task of the Chinese communists will be to unite the population more around the construction of a country based on the conception of socialism with Chinese characteristics.
Among the advances since the previous Congress, he highlighted that the country provided the population with better living conditions and won the battle against poverty, an event that he described as historic and that points to the need to continue developing the rural sector and agri-food production. .
During his speech, Xi Jinping referred to the takeoff of economic activity, which has taken that nation to second place globally, with an 18 percent share of the world‘s gross domestic product (GDP), while it ranks first in grain production and foreign exchange reserves.
He pointed out that a more dynamic and far-reaching economic opening strategy has been applied abroad, which has placed China as the first trading partner of around 140 nations around the world.
Xi Jinping valued as positive the confrontation with internal corruption and the constant promotion among the militants and the people of a thought opposed to privileges.
He also stressed that the economic reforms have been applied under the criterion that the people are the owners of the country, the main subject in socialism with Chinese characteristics and an essential actor in the deepening of democracy.
He also highlighted the country’s world leadership in confronting the Covid-19 pandemic and in world governance, with its voice in favor of the peoples, diplomacy and multilateralism, to the detriment of positions of strength and hegemonic conceptions of a group of nations.
