Speeding up Reform of the System for Developing an Ecological Civilization, and Building a Beautiful China
The modernization that we pursue is one characterized by harmonious coexistence between man and nature. In addition to creating more material and cultural wealth to meet people’s ever-increasing needs for a better life, we need also to provide more quality ecological goods to meet people’s ever-growing demands for a beautiful environment.
We should, acting on the principles of prioritizing resource conservation and environmental protection and letting nature restore itself, develop spatial layouts, industrial structures, and ways of work and life that help conserve resources and protect the environment. With this, we can restore the serenity, harmony, and beauty of nature.
Promoting green development
We will step up efforts to establish a legal and policy framework that promotes green production and consumption, and promote a sound economic structure that facilitates green, low-carbon, and circular development.
Solving prominent environmental problems
We will get everyone involved in improving the environment and address environmental issues at the root. We will continue our campaign to prevent and control air pollution to make our skies blue again.
Intensifying the protection of ecosystems
We will carry out major projects to protect and restore key ecosystems, improve the system of shields for ecological security, and develop ecological corridors and biodiversity protection networks, so as to strengthen the quality and stability of our ecosystems.
Reforming the environmental regulation system
We will strengthen overall planning, organization, and leadership for building an ecological civilization. We will establish regulatory agencies to manage State-owned natural resource assets and monitor natural ecosystems, and improve environmental management systems. These agencies will, in a unified way, perform the duties of the owner of public-owned natural resource assets, the duties of regulating the use of all territorial space and protecting and restoring ecosystems, and the duties of monitoring the discharge of all pollutants in urban and rural areas and conducting administrative law enforcement.
Staying Committed to the Chinese Path of Building Strong Armed Forces and Fully Advancing the Modernization of National Defense and the Military
We have reached a new historical starting point in strengthening national defense and the armed forces.
We must keep it firm in our minds that technology is the core combat capability, encourage innovations in major technologies, and conduct innovation independently.
We will strengthen the system for training military personnel, and make our people's forces more innovative.
A military is built to fight. Our military must regard combat capability as the criterion to meet in all its work and focus on how to win when it is called on.
Our military is the people's military, and our national defense is the responsibility of every one of us.
Upholding "One Country, Two Systems" and Moving toward National Reunification
The policy of "one country, two systems" has proved to be the best solution to the questions of Hong Kong and Macao, left by history, and the best institutional guarantee for long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao after their return.
The development of Hong Kong and Macao is closely tied up with that of the mainland. We will continue to support Hong Kong and Macao in integrating their own development into the overall development of the country.
We will formulate and improve policies and measures to make it more convenient for people from Hong Kong and Macao to develop careers on the mainland.
We will remain committed to the policy for the Hong Kong people to govern Hong Kong and the Macao people to govern Macao, with patriots playing the principal role.
Resolving the Taiwan question to realize China's complete reunification is the shared aspiration of all Chinese people, and is in the fundamental interests of the Chinese nation.
The one-China principle is the political foundation of cross-Straits relations.
We stand firm in safeguarding China's sovereignty and territorial integration and will never allow the historical tragedy of national division to repeat itself.
We have the resolve, the confidence, and the ability to defeat separatist attempts for "Taiwan independence" in any form.
