He said from now onward, the CPC’s central task will be to lead the Chinese people in a concerted effort to build China into a great modern socialist country.
Xi Jinping pledged to improve the people’s well-being and quality of life. China will improve the system of income distribution and will ensure more pay for more work, encourage people to achieve prosperity through hard work and increase the size of the middle-income group.
China will do more to help those in difficulty find employment and meet their basic needs and improve the social security system with expanded coverage of social insurance programs, he added.
He said that the CPC would implement its overall policy for resolving the Taiwan question in the new era and unswervingly advance the cause of national reunification.
“We will continue to strive for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity and the utmost effort, but we will never promise to renounce the use of force, and we reserve the option of taking all measures necessary,” he added.
