Feb. 14, 2018 (EIRNS)—Speaking today in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, President Xi Jinping stressed the multi-generational importance of building socialism with Chinese characteristics. His greeting for the Spring Festival and lunar New Year, was directed to “all Chinese people” at home and abroad.

President Xi reviewed China’s accomplishments over the past year, in the economy, deepening reform, advancing law-based governance, improving people’s lives and fighting poverty, progress in national defense and armed forces construction, diplomacy, and strict governance over the party.
