Embracing the great rejuvenation

WithCai Fang

China is the only country in human history that continues the ancient civilization and experiences rise and fall and then great rejuvenation. The Chinese people propose a grand target for themselves that by 2050, marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will be achieved. This “Chinese Dream” is elaborated as “rejuvenation” rather than “revitalization,” because in history China was not always backward in science and technology development and economic prosperity, but outpaced the world for a long time. China started the grand journey to the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and has gained surprising economic and social development achievements, becoming the second economy in the world. Witnessing the economic and social development achievements gained since the reform and opening-up, Chinese people are more confident. The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is neither a theory nor a motivational slogan; it will be definitely promoted steadily and quickly.
