Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era holds holistic and systemic theoretical characteristics. First, it stresses continuity by absorbing spirit of traditional Chinese culture and being in line with the theoretical system of socialism with Chinese characteristics established since the start of the policy of reform and opening up. Second, it emphasizes innovations, focusing on the goals of China’s development, while drawing attention directly to difficulties and challenges, and channeling efforts into seeking and developing new concepts, ideas and strategies. Third, it emphasizes the inherent connection to the people by reiterating mission of the Party, and positing the people’s desire for a beautiful life as the starting point and goal of the all the struggle. Fourth, it takes on scientific method by seeking truth from facts and trying to eliminate all the disadvantages brought by outdated ideas and institutions, while searching for objective laws in the governance of Communist Parties, the building of socialism, and the evolvement of human society, and consequently, making plans for its own cause in compliance with objective laws.

. . .

At the same time, to achieve this goal, China is also faced with certain weaknesses and shortcomings, ranging from inadequacy in quality, effectiveness and innovation capability, to potential financial risks, etc. With over 40 million rural people still living in poverty, the gap in development and income between urban and rural areas is still rather large. The people are still faced with problematic issues in areas such as employment, health care, housing and retirement benefits. There is still difficult tasks in environmental protection, and considerable efforts will need to be exerted over a long period of time in order to streamline sectors with high energy consumption and pollution levels, as well as to phase out outdated manufacturing capacities. Therefore, the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects involves not only quantitative economic indicators but also qualitative and social indicators. In the words of General Secretary Xi Jinping, it must “earn the people’s approval and stand the test of time”.

. . .

five spheres of development have been identified

. . .

China will never seek hegemony or engage in expansion. China steadfastly adheres to its fundamental foreign policy goal of preserving world peace and promoting common development, and is playing the role of an “anchor of peace” in a world of uncertainties and “stabilizer” in the volatile international situation. China is committed to forging a new form of international relations featuring mutual respect, fairness, justice, and win-win cooperation, and calls on the people of all countries to work together to build a community with a shared future for mankind, which is an open, inclusive, clean, and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity.

. . .

We will also increase investment in such areas as theory and policy research, economics and finance, institution building and security guarantee, in order to provide full-fledged support for the initiative and inject new impetus to the common development of participating countries.

China will take an active part in reforming and building the global governance system.

. . .

The governments of the two countries have identified 73 priority projects for the fourth round of investment cooperation, worth a total of around $100 billion.
