Keynote Speech by Ambassador Chen Xiaodong at the Online Promotion Conference of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China

Ladies and gentlemen, friends,

This plenary meeting is an important meeting at the important moment of the centenary birthday of the Communist Party of China. It is an important meeting held at the key point of the historical intersection of the “two centenary” struggle goals. Why can we succeed” “How can we continue to succeed in the future”, so as to better adhere to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. This plenary meeting deliberated and passed the “Resolution of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on the Party’s Major Achievements and Historical Experience in a Century of Struggle” and the “Resolution on Convening the Twentieth National Congress of the Party”, and decided to convene the second half of 2022.

In order to let friends from all walks of life in South Africa better understand the situation of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee, I will introduce the following aspects.

The most important result of this plenum was the adoption of the “Resolution of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Major Achievements and Historical Experience of the Party’s Centennial Struggle”, which is the third historical resolution of the Communist Party of China. In the hundred years of the Communist Party of China, the Seventh Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee of the Party in 1945 formulated the “Resolution on Certain Historical Issues”, and in 1981 the Sixth Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Party formulated the “Resolution on Certain Historical Issues of the Party since the Founding of the People’s Republic of China”. “. Different from the previous two resolutions, this resolution focuses on summarizing the party’s major achievements and historical experience in a century of struggle, highlighting the focus of a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and embodies the Party Central Committee’s new understanding of the party’s century of struggle. The Marxist programmatic document is a political manifesto for Chinese Communists in the new era to keep in mind their original mission, adhere to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics, and is a guide for action to learn from history, create the future, and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The most distinctive feature of the “Resolution” is seeking truth from facts and respecting history. It reflects the original mission of the party for a century of struggle. The first two historical resolutions of the party are in the same line and advance with the times, and will surely inspire the whole party to anchor the set goals and objectives of the struggle. Go into the future vigorously.

Ladies and gentlemen, friends,

The Communist Party of China has accumulated ten important historical experiences in its centuries of struggle. They are: Persist in the leadership of the Party. The leadership of the Communist Party of China is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics and the greatest advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. Upholding the people’s supremacy, the country is the people, and the people are the country. The Communist Party of China always puts the people in the highest position in their hearts and draws wisdom and strength from the masses of the people. Persisting in theoretical innovation, an important reason for the continuous development of the Communist Party of China is that it can continuously promote theoretical innovation and theoretical creation based on adherence to the basic principles of Marxism and in combination with China’s actual conditions. Insisting on independence and proceeding from China’s national conditions, we have explored and formed a path that suits China’s reality. Adhering to the Chinese path, the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics is the only way to realize socialist modernization and create a better life for the people, and the only way to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Persisting in keeping the world in mind, the Communist Party of China is a political party that strives for the advancement of mankind, and always takes it as its mission to make new and greater contributions to mankind. Insisting on pioneering and innovative, and constantly advancing theoretical innovation, practical innovation, institutional innovation, cultural innovation and other innovations in various aspects, we have gone out of the way that the predecessors did not. Persistence in daring to fight, daring to fight, and daring to win is the invincible and powerful spiritual force of the Chinese Communist Party. Adhering to the united front, the patriotic united front is an important magic weapon for the Communist Party of China to unite all Chinese sons and daughters at home and abroad to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Persevering in self-revolution and having the courage to self-revolution is the most distinctive character and greatest advantage of the Chinese Communist Party, and it is a distinctive mark that distinguishes it from other political parties.

For one hundred years, the Communist Party of China has always fulfilled its original mission, united and led the people of all ethnic groups across the country to paint a magnificent picture in the history of human development, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has shown unprecedented bright prospects. The “Resolution” summarizes the historical significance of the party’s centuries of struggle from five aspects:

First, it has fundamentally changed the future and destiny of the Chinese people. The Chinese people have completely got rid of the destiny of being bullied, oppressed, and enslaved, and have become the masters of the country, society, and their own destiny. The Chinese people’s yearning for a better life has become reality. ; The second is to open up the right path to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In just a few decades, China has completed the industrialization process that developed countries have gone through for hundreds of years, creating two miracles of rapid economic development and long-term social stability; Demonstrating the powerful vitality of Marxism, the science and truth of Marxism have been fully tested in China, the people and practicality of Marxism have been fully implemented in China, and the openness and timeliness of Marxism have been fully demonstrated in China; The fourth is that it has profoundly affected the process of world history. The party has led the people to successfully walk out of the path of Chinese-style modernization, created a new form of human civilization, and expanded the path for developing countries to modernize. The spiritual pedigree with the great party-building spirit as the source has maintained the party’s advanced nature and purity, and the party’s governance and leadership levels have continuously improved. The Communist Party of China is worthy of being a great, glorious and correct party.

The five meanings are comprehensive, profound, and systematically expounding the historical contributions of the Communist Party of China to the Chinese people, the Chinese nation, Marxism, the cause of human progress, and the construction of Marxist parties. They are based on the land of China and have a vision of the future of mankind, which embodies the Communist Party of China. The relationship with the Chinese people and the Chinese nation embodies the relationship between the Communist Party of China, Marxism, world socialism, and the development of human society, and penetrates the historical logic, theoretical logic, and practical logic of the Chinese Communist Party’s centuries of struggle.

Ladies and gentlemen, friends,

The most prominent political achievement of the “Resolution” is the “two establishments.” The “Resolution” emphasizes that “to establish the core position of Comrade Xi Jinping’s Party Central Committee and the core position of the whole party, and establish the guiding position of Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era” reflects the common aspirations of the whole party, the whole army and the people of all ethnic groups in the country. It is the call of the times. , The choice of history and the aspirations of the people are of decisive significance for the development of the cause of the party and the country in the new era and for the advancement of the historical process of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

A country, a political party, the core of leadership is very important. Comrade Mao Zedong, the founding leader of China, once made a vivid metaphor: “Does a peach have several cores? There is only one core.” Comrade Deng Xiaoping, the chief architect of China’s reform and opening up, once profoundly pointed out: “Any collective leadership must have one core. The core, the leadership without the core is unreliable.” Facts have repeatedly proved that the party has the core and the whole party has the core, and the party has power. Without the core of the Party Central Committee and the core of the entire Party, there will be no authority and centralized leadership of the Party Central Committee.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has used the outstanding political wisdom, extraordinary theoretical courage, and profound feelings of the world of Marxist politicians, thinkers, and strategists to coordinate the overall strategy of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the great changes unseen in a century. Undertake great struggles, great projects, great causes, and great dreams, lead the whole party and the people of the whole country to carry forward the great historical initiative spirit, create a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and promote the party and the country to achieve historic achievements and historic changes. The land has built a well-off society in an all-round way, and has become the core of the party, the leader of the people, and the commander-in-chief of the army.

From winning the battle against poverty to realizing the millennium dream of a well-off in an all-round way, from comprehensively deepening reforms to “biting hard bones” to constructing the four pillars of the national system and governance system, from “fighting tigers”, “flying” and “fox hunting” to advancing together. Dare to corrupt, cannot be corrupted, do not want to corrupt, from the establishment of a strong military goal to the revolutionary reshaping of the military power system, from proposing the “Belt and Road” initiative to promoting the building of a community with a shared future for mankind, from taking the lead in controlling the new crown pneumonia epidemic to taking the lead in resuming work and production… …The Chinese party and state undertakings have made historic achievements and undergone historic changes. In this process, General Secretary Xi Jinping worked on the ground, walked in the forefront, set his words and deeds, and did what he said. He demonstrated firm beliefs and beliefs, a clear people’s standpoint, and tenacious will. He explained that “I will have no self and live up to the people.” He has won the heartfelt support of the whole party, the whole country and the whole army, and has won high praise from the international community. The Communist Party of China, with more than 95 million party members, and the Chinese nation with a population of 1.4 billion, unanimously believe that, with General Secretary Xi Jinping at the helm, the whole party will have a fixing star, the people of the country will have the backbone, and the Chinese “Renaissance” giant ship will have At the helm, in the face of rough seas, we will be able to “let the wind and waves rise and sit still on the fishing boat.”

Only political parties with scientific theories have the power of truth; only undertakings guided by scientific theories have a bright future. In the past 100 years, the reason why the Chinese Communist Party has been able to accomplish arduous tasks that other political forces cannot accomplish, and has won time after time in the struggle against various political forces and difficult challenges, is fundamentally because the Chinese Communist Party has scientific and correct theoretical guidance. This lies in the fact that the Communist Party of China integrates the basic principles of Marxism with China’s specific reality and with China’s excellent traditional culture, continuously promotes theoretical innovation, and is good at using new theories to guide new practices.

In the process of Sinicization of Marxism, the Communist Party of China has achieved two great combinations, completed two historic leaps, and produced two theoretical results of the Sinicization of Marxism. The first historic leap formed the first great theoretical achievement of the Sinicization of Marxism-Mao Zedong Thought. The second historic leap formed the second great theoretical achievement of the Sinicization of Marxism-the theoretical system of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese Communists, with Comrade Xi Jinping as the main representative, have persisted in combining the basic principles of Marxism with China’s specific reality and with the excellent traditional Chinese culture, upholding Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, and the “Three Represents”. “Important thoughts, scientific development concepts, profoundly summarized and fully utilized the historical experience since the founding of the party, proceeded from the new reality, and systematically answered from the combination of theory and practice what kind of socialism with Chinese characteristics should be maintained and developed in the new era, and how to maintain harmony. The development of socialism with Chinese characteristics is a major issue of the times, which created Xi Jinping’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

The core ideological theory of Xi Jinping’s thinking on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is the “eight clears”: clearly adhere to and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics. The overall task is to realize socialist modernization and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and to build a well-off society in an all-round way. The above is a two-step process to build a prosperous, democratic, civilized, harmonious and beautiful modern socialist country in the middle of this century; it is clear that the main contradiction of our society in the new era is the contradiction between the people’s growing needs for a better life and unbalanced and inadequate development. We must adhere to the people-centered development thinking, and constantly promote the all-round development of people and the common prosperity of all people; make it clear that the overall layout of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics is the “five in one” and the strategic layout is the “four comprehensives”, and emphasize firm confidence in the road. , Theoretical confidence, institutional confidence, and cultural confidence; it is clear that the overall goal of comprehensively deepening reform is to improve and develop the socialist system with Chinese characteristics, and promote the modernization of the national governance system and governance capabilities; it is clear that the overall goal of comprehensively promoting the rule of law is to build a socialist rule of law system with Chinese characteristics , Building a socialist country under the rule of law; clarify that the party’s goal of strengthening the army in the new era is to build a people’s army that listens to the party’s command, can win battles, and has a good work style, and build the people’s army into a world-class army; clarify that major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics should be promoted Build a new type of international relations and promote the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind; it is clear that the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics is the leadership of the Communist Party of China. The biggest advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics is the leadership of the Communist Party of China. The party is the highest political leadership force. The general requirements for construction highlight the important position of political construction in party building. These “eight clears” not only scientifically expound a series of basic issues concerning the adherence and development of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, but also form a systematic and logically rigorous scientific theoretical system, which intensively demonstrates Marxism in contemporary China and in the 21st century. New developments.

The most fundamental practical requirement of Xi Jinping’s thinking on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is the “fourteen perseverances”: Persist in the party’s leadership in all work, adhere to the people as the center, persevere in comprehensively deepening reforms, adhere to the new development concept, and adhere to the people’s responsibility Adhere to the comprehensive rule of law, adhere to the socialist core value system, adhere to the protection and improvement of people’s livelihood in development, adhere to the harmonious coexistence of man and nature, adhere to the overall national security concept, adhere to the party’s absolute leadership over the people’s army, adhere to the “one country, two systems” and Promote the reunification of the motherland, persist in building a community with a shared future for mankind, and persist in administering the party strictly in an all-round way. These “14 Persistences” are the basic strategy for upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. They have made top-level designs for various important areas and pointed out the goals, paths, and methods for upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.

Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era is based on seeking happiness for the people, rejuvenation for the nation, and universal unity for the world. It has demonstrated a powerful force of truth in contemporary China and in the 21st century world. Establishing the guiding position of Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, the Communist Party of China will be able to adhere to the correct direction and ride the wind and waves under the complex conditions of the profound evolution and interaction of the great rejuvenation strategy of the Chinese nation and the great changes unseen in a century; We can always grasp the law of development, use the scientific world view and methodology to plan career development, cope with risks and challenges, and lead all Chinese people to continuously open up bright prospects for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thoughts. It is an organic part of Xi Jinping’s thoughts on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era. It is the latest achievement of contemporary Chinese Marxism and 21st century Marxism in the diplomatic field.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has personally led a magnificent new era of major country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics, and proposed a series of pioneering and leading initiatives such as the joint construction of the “Belt and Road”, the construction of a new type of international relations, and the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind. Significant new diplomatic concepts, new propositions, and new initiatives, actively advocating China’s views on international order, global governance, global security, new development, ecology, civilization, and the common values ​​of all mankind, forming and establishing Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thoughts and becoming The fundamental follow and action guide for foreign work in the new era.

The essence of Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thought has ten main aspects: insist on maintaining the authority of the Party Central Committee and strengthening the party’s centralized and unified leadership of foreign work, persisting in the mission of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and advancing major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics, and persisting in safeguarding world peace. , Promoting common development for the purpose of promoting the building of a community with a shared future for mankind, insisting on taking socialism with Chinese characteristics as the foundation to enhance strategic confidence, insisting on the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and sharing, and adhering to the construction of the “Belt and Road”, insisting on mutual respect, cooperation and win-win as the foundation Follow the path of peaceful development, adhere to the deepening of diplomatic layout as a basis for building global partnerships, adhere to the concept of fairness and justice to lead the reform of the global governance system, adhere to the core national interests as the bottom line to safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests, adhere to the excellent foreign work The combination of tradition and the characteristics of the times has shaped the unique style of China’s diplomacy. These 10 “persistences” are the profound theoretical and practical foundations for constructing major-country diplomacy with Chinese characteristics, surpassing the stereotypes of traditional international relations theories, and providing ideological and conceptual guidance for countries to join hands in building a community with a shared future for mankind.

Under the correct guidance of Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thinking, China holds high the banner of peace, development, cooperation, and win-win, promotes and perfects a comprehensive, multi-level, and three-dimensional diplomatic layout, and actively develops global partnerships. China upholds the correct concept of justice and interests and the concept of true friendship and sincerity, strengthens unity and cooperation with developing countries including Africa, and achieves full coverage of the overall cooperation mechanism. China actively participates in the reform and construction of the global governance system, safeguards the international system with the United Nations as the core, the international order based on international law, the basic norms of international relations based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, and upholds and practices true multilateralism. Resolutely oppose unilateralism, protectionism, hegemonism, and power politics. China constructively participates in the political settlement of international and regional hotspot issues, and plays an active role in the fields of climate change, poverty reduction, counter-terrorism, cyber security, and maintenance of regional security.

Since the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, President Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized that countries should work together to fight the epidemic to ensure the availability and affordability of vaccines in developing countries; revive the economy, put forward global development initiatives, and jointly promote global development to a new stage of balance, coordination and inclusiveness ; Strengthen unity and oppose the politicization of the epidemic and the labeling of the virus. These propositions vividly embody the noble feelings of “the world is for the public, the world is for the public, the world is harmonious, the world is united, and the world is unified” contained in Xi Jinping’s diplomatic thoughts, and integrates the development of China with the development of the world Combine the interests of the Chinese people with the common and fundamental interests of the people of the world, stand at the forefront of the development of the times, represent the majority of the international community, and contribute Chinese wisdom and Chinese solutions to solving the world’s problems faced by mankind.

Ladies and gentlemen, friends,

The friendship between China and South Africa has a long history. The relationship between the two countries has been continuously tempered in the struggle against imperialism, colonialism and racism, and has been continuously upgraded in the process of unity and cooperation, mutual benefit, win-win, and common development. It has realized the transformation from partnership, strategic partnership to comprehensiveness. The major leap in the strategic partnership has brought tangible benefits to the people of the two countries. Under the joint leadership of successive leaders of the two countries, especially President Xi Jinping and President Ramaphosa, the political mutual trust between the two countries has continued to deepen, pragmatic cooperation has continued to expand, humanities cooperation has been splendid, and international cooperation has become closer. China-South Africa relations have long gone beyond the scope of bilateral relations and have become a model for China-Africa relations, South-South cooperation and cooperation among emerging market countries, with important strategic significance and global influence.

An important reason for the continuous development of China-South Africa cooperation is that as the ruling parties, the Communist Party of China, the ANC, and the South African Communist Party continue to strengthen exchanges of experience in party governance and focus on mutual learning and common progress.

Next year, the Communist Party of China will usher in its 20th National Congress, the ANC will usher in its 55th National Congress, and South Africa will usher in its 15th National Congress. Standing at a new historical starting point, the Communist Party of China is willing to work with the ANC, South Africa and the people of South Africa to develop together and prosper together, to exchange and learn from each other in order to explore development paths in line with national conditions, and to build a closer China-South Africa community with a shared future in the new era. Build consensus.

Finally, I wish this event a complete success, and at the same time look forward to listening to the insights of the guests.

thank you all!
