He pointed out that in 2013, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China with Comrade Xi Jinping as the general secretary led the people of the whole country in a united struggle. The beginning of the strategy has been set, and the first battle has been achieved. The Third Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China has made overall arrangements for comprehensively deepening reforms. As a participating party of socialism with Chinese characteristics, we must stand together with the Communist Party of China through hardships and hardships, be close friends and critics, tell the truth, advise, and strengthen our own construction. , A clear-cut support for reforms requires both good strategies and vigorous efforts to demonstrate the vigorous vitality of the multi-party cooperation and political consultation system under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. He also put forward opinions and suggestions on strengthening the democratic supervision of non-party personalities.
After listening to Comrade Chen Zhu's speech, Xi Jinping delivered an important speech. He first said that in a few days, it will be the Chinese New Year of the Horse in the lunar calendar. I read two pairs of Spring Festival couplets published in newspapers for everyone. One is "A horse chasing the wind to raise the spirit, the winter plum and snow see the spirit", and the other is "Hold your mane up, the horse dances in the east wind, and pursue your dreams; Dou Han Aoxue , The red plum blossoms the earth and realizes the revival".
Xi Jinping pointed out that 2013 was an extraordinary year for our country. In the face of the complex and changeable international situation and the arduous and arduous tasks of domestic reform, development and stability, the Communist Party of China has firmly relied on the people of all ethnic groups in the country, including the democratic parties, the Federation of Industry and Commerce and people without party affiliation, and has overcome various difficulties and challenges together. , Has made new remarkable achievements. In the past year, the democratic parties, the Federation of Industry and Commerce and people without party affiliation have adapted to the requirements of the times, gave full play to their own advantages, worked actively and worked together with the Communist Party of China to promote the development of the united front and multi-party cooperation for comprehensive development. New contributions have been made in building a well-off society. On behalf of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the democratic parties, the Federation of Industry and Commerce and people without party affiliation, and to the members of the united front.
Xi Jinping pointed out that to do all the work this year, the Communist Party of China needs to strengthen unity and cooperation with all democratic parties, the Federation of Industry and Commerce and people without party affiliation, and make unremitting efforts. One fence has three stakes, and one hero has three gangs. Practice has proved that building a new China, building a new China, opening up reform paths, and realizing the Chinese Dream all require the concerted efforts of all parties, organizations and people from all walks of life. The more we are in the critical period of reform, the more we need to gather wisdom and strengthen the joint force; the more we are in the critical period of development, the more we need to unite people and unite our will. I hope that comrades will actively guide the people they contact, build a broad consensus, gather strong energy, conduct in-depth investigations and research, and put forward insights, so that the party and the government can look at problems more comprehensively and make more scientific decisions.
Xi Jinping emphasized that consultative democracy is an important part of my country's socialist democratic politics, a unique form and unique advantage of China's socialist democratic politics, and an important way for the Chinese Communist Party to govern and make decisions. I hope that comrades will take the initiative to develop deliberative democracy and continuously improve the effectiveness and level of deliberative democracy. The organizations at all levels of the Communist Party of China, especially the leading cadres, should adopt a broad-minded, equal attitude, and democratic style to broaden the opinions and wisdom, enrich the forms of consultation and democracy, and enhance the effectiveness of democratic consultation. Party members play a role to create favorable conditions.
Xi Jinping pointed out that the adherence to and development of socialism with Chinese characteristics requires the Communist Party of China to strengthen its own construction and also requires the participating parties to strengthen their own construction. I hope that comrades can accurately grasp the basic requirements of building socialist participating parties with Chinese characteristics, inherit the fine traditions, grasp the requirements of the times, and continuously improve their ability to grasp politics, participate in and discuss politics, organize leadership, and cooperate and work together, and strive to make socialist participating parties with Chinese characteristics. The construction is raised to a new level.
In the end, Xi Jinping encouraged the attendees with the spirit of a long horse, ten thousand horses, fast horses, and horses to succeed.
