Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said on Sunday that China will open its doors more widely and be determined to deepen reform and opening-up at all levels, promote high-quality development and create more opportunities for the world.
Xi was elected general secretary of the 20th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee as well as chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission.
President Xi made the pledge during a press briefing with other newly elected members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee at the Great Hall of the People.
Just as China cannot develop in isolation from the world, the world needs China for its development, Xi said, adding that over the past 40 years of relentless reform, China has created two miracles of rapid economic growth and long-term social stability.
China’s economy has great resilience and potential, its strong fundamentals will not change, and it will stay on a positive long-term trajectory, he said.
The members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee elected at the session are Xi Jinping, Li Qiang, Zhao Leji, Wang Huning, Cai Qi, Ding Xuexiang and Li Xi.
