 Having gone through a century-long struggle, the CPC has become even stronger in its revolutionary endeavor, and has always become a strong leadership core in the historical process of upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics. The Chinese people have a stronger driving force, a stronger spirit of struggle, and a stronger belief in victory. The CPC and the Chinese people are full of confidence in advancing the great leap of the Chinese nation from standing up, growing rich to becoming strong.

 To continue to advance theoretical innovation based on practice, we must first grasp the worldview and methodology of the Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and make good use of the positions, views and methods that permeate it. We should put the people first, be confident and independent, be honest and innovative, be problem-oriented, be systematic, and bear the world in mind.

 On the road ahead, we must firmly grasp the major principles: uphold and strengthen the Party's overall leadership, adhere to the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, adhere to the philosophy of people-centered development, deepen reform and opening up, and carry forward the spirit of struggle.

 We will build a high-level socialist market economy, develop a modern industrial system, comprehensively promote rural revitalization, promote coordinated development among regions, and advance high-level opening up.

 We will give priority to education development, pursue self-reliance in science and technology, and promote talent development, and accelerate efforts to make China strong in education, science and technology, and human resources.

 We will strengthen institutional guarantees for the running of the country by the people, comprehensively develop consultative democracy, actively develop community-level democracy, and consolidate and develop the broadest possible patriotic united front.

 We should improve the socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics with the Constitution at its core, make solid progress in law-based administration, strictly and fairly administer justice, and speed up the building of a law-based society.

 We will improve the distribution system, implement the employment-first strategy, improve the social security system, and promote the building of a healthy China.

 We need to speed up the green transformation of our development model, intensify efforts to prevent and control environmental pollution, enhance the diversity, stability and sustainability of our ecosystems, and actively yet prudently promote peak carbon neutrality.

 We should improve the national security system, enhance our ability to safeguard national security, improve public security governance, and improve the social governance system.

 We should comprehensively strengthen military training and preparation for war, comprehensively strengthen military governance, and consolidate and improve the strategic system and capacity of integrated countries.

 We will govern Hong Kong and Macao in accordance with the law, implement the central government's overall governance power, implement the principles of "patriots administering Hong Kong" and "patriots administering Macao", and support Hong Kong and Macao in better integrating into the overall development of the country and playing a better role in the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. We must strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification with utmost sincerity and utmost efforts, but reserve the option of taking all necessary measures. The complete reunification of the motherland will and will be achieved.

 China firmly pursues an independent foreign policy of peace, develops friendship and cooperation with other countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, and adheres to the basic state policy of opening up. The Chinese people are ready to work with the people of the world to create an even better future for mankind.
