And he expressed sincere thanks to all of them on behalf of the central committee of CPC.

Xi said that a new leadership was elected at the first session of the 19th central committee. And he regarded it as recognition of his work and further inspiration and encouragement of him for the central committee to elect him to continue serve as general secretary. 

Xi made an introduction of the members of his new team one by one, then he, on behalf of the new leadership, expressed thanks to all the party members for their trust and confidence, and said the new leadership would stay dedicated to their duties, work hard, accomplish goals, and live up to the expectations of the people.

Xi said, over the past five years, a lot of achievements had been made, and a lot of programs awaited further efforts. The 19th congress had set many new targets and goals, which called for overall planning and implementation. Thanks to long-term endeavor, we have ushered in a new era for the socialism with Chinese characteristics. And the new era calls for new initiatives and new achievements. Xi said that the coming five years between the 19th congress and 20th congress are critical to achieving the two centenary goals. We must realize the first centenary goal within the five years, and lay a firm foundation for the second centenary goal. And we must keep in mind the important time nodes, which forms the coordinate of our work.

Xi stressed that in 2018 we will celebrate the 40 anniversary of reform and opening up, which has basically shaped what China is today. Thanks to 40 years of reforms and opening up, the Chinese people have basically lived a fairly well-off life, and are now heading for a wealthy one. So we should draw on the achievements already made, ride the wave of the times, promote the modernization of national governance system and governance capacity, make unswerving efforts to deepen reforms in all fields, open wider to the outside world, and see that reform and opening up complement each other. Xi said he was confident that the rejuvenation of China will be achieved in the process of reform and opening up.

Xi said that 2019 marks the 70 anniversary of the founding of the PRC, and we will follow the new blueprint for development, promote the economic growth in a healthier manner, and benefit Chinese people and other peoples with our development outcome. We will push ahead with the tasks and targets set by the thirteenth five-year plan, and make new vision for the national development with a view to making new breakthroughs in all our endeavors and building our country into one that is stronger and more prosperous. 

Xi emphasized that by 2020 we will finish building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, an endeavor aimed to benefit all, and an effort for common prosperity that allows no one to be left behind. We will motivate the national resources to promote poverty alleviation until no one lives in poverty, a commitment to which we will stay true. We should keep it in mind that what we strive for is for our people to live a better life. We will always put the people first, work hard on people’s well-being, see that our people have an increasing sense of gain, happiness and safety, and ensure that all our people benefit from the common prosperity.

The CPC is dedicated to establishing China firmly in the central stage as a great power, and the 100 anniversary constitutes a landmark in this sense. As the largest party in the world, CPC will surely match its achievements with its size. As proved by the facts, CPC is well qualified as the leader of the Chinese people in social revolution, because it is capable of self-revolution. We should keep vigorous, serve the people forever, act as pioneer of the times and national mainstay. We should follow strictly party self-discipline, forge ahead, and never slacken our steps. We will all “viruses” that eat into the health of the party, work hard to create a political ecology where integrity and honesty are thriving. And we will form a great momentum for China’s development by pooling our party’s positive energy.

Xi called attention to the fact that both the party and its people had survived hardship and difficulties, so they understand the value of peace and development. The Chinese people are a confident nation with dignity. They will resolutely safeguard China's sovereignty, security and development interests. And they will work with the people of all the other countries to build a human destiny community, and make new and greater contributions to noble cause of peace and development for mankind.

Xi said that it is people who write the history, and all credits go to the people. So long as we take root deep in the grass-roots and rely on the people, we can forge ahead with unexhausted strength and resources.

Xi concluded his speech by saying that to see is to believe. He welcomed the reporters to visit more places in China, pay continuous attention to the changes and development China will undergo after the 19th congress, so as to gain a deeper understanding of China and deliver more reports about China. He said what China need is not flattery, but objective report and constructive suggestions, as are always welcomed by China, or, as the saying goes, “asking not compliment on my good looks, but hoping that my integrity will fill the universe.”

At 17 past twelve, the interview ended. Xi and his team waved goodbye to the reporters. And the event came to an end among the heated applauses on the site.

The event was broadcast live by such media as CNR, CCTV, CRI, People's Daily Online, Xinhuanet, China network TV, China network, People's Daily Client, Xinhua Client, and CCTV News Client.
