Comrades and friends,—–China Communist Party

Today, the 1st of July is a great and solemn day in the history of both the Communist Party of China and the Chinese nation. We gather here, to join all party members and the Chinese people of all ethnic groups around the country in celebrating the centenary of the party. Looking back on the glorious journey, the party has traveled over 100 years of struggle and looking ahead to the bright prospects of their rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

To begin, let me extend warm congratulations to all party members on behalf of the CPC Central Committee.

On this special occasion, It is my honor to declare on behalf of the party and the people that through the continuous efforts of the whole party and the entire nation, we have realized the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. This means that we have brought about a historical resolution to the problem of absolute poverty in China, and we are now marching in confidence strides toward the second centenary goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects. This is a great and glorious accomplishment of the Chinese nation for the Chinese people and for the Communist Party of China.

Comrades and friends,

The Chinese nation is a great nation with a history of more than 5,000 years. China has made indelible contributions to the progress of human civilization. After the Opium War of1840, however, China was gradually reduced to a semi-colonial semi-feudal society and suffered great ravages than ever before. The country endured intense humiliation, the people were subjected to great pain, and the Chinese civilization was plunged into darkness. Since that time, national rejuvenation has been the greatest dream of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation.

To save the nation from peril, the Chinese people put up a courageous fight as noble-minded patriots sought to pull the nation together. The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Movement, the reform movement in 1898, the Yihetuan Movement and the Revolution of 1911 rose one after another, and a variety of plans were devised to ensure national survival, but all of these ended in failure. China was in urgent need of new ideas to lead the movement, to save the nation, and a new organization to rally revolutionary forces.

With the salvos of Russians’ OctoberRevolution in 1917, Marxism-Leninism was brought to China. Then, in 1921, as the Chinese people and the Chinese nation were undergoing great awakening and profound social changes in history, it was becoming closely integrated with the Chinese workers’ movement. The Communist Party of China was born. The founding of the communist party of China was an epoch-making event, which profoundly changed the course of Chinese history in modern times, transformed the future of the Chinese people and nation, and altered the landscape of world development.

Since the very day of its founding, the party has made seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation its aspiration and mission. All the struggle and sacrifice and creation through which the party has united and led the Chinese people over the past 100 years has been tied together by one ultimate theme: bringing about the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

To Realize national rejuvenation, the party united and led the Chinese people in fighting bloody battles with unyielding determination, achieving great success in a new democratic revolution. Through the Northern Expedition, the Agrarian Revolutionary War, the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, and the War of Liberation, we fought armed counter-revolution with armed revolution, toppling the three mountains of imperialism, federalism, and bureaucratic capitalism, and establishing the People’s Republic of China, which made people masters of the country, secured our nation’s independence and liberated our people.

The victory of the New Democratic Revolution put an end to China’s history as a semi-colonial semi-feudal society, to the state of total disunity that existed in old China, and to all the unequal treaties imposed on our country by foreign powers and all the privileges and perilous powers enjoyed in China. It created the fundamental social conditions for realizing national rejuvenation. Through tenacious struggle, the party and the Chinese people showed the world that the Chinese people have stood up, and the time in which the Chinese nation could be bullied and abused by others was gone forever.

To realize national rejuvenation, the party united and led the Chinese people to build a stronger China with the spirit of self-reliance, achieving great success in the socialist revolution and construction by carrying out a socialist revolution. We eliminated the exploitative and repressive feudal system that has persisted in China for thousands of years and established socialism as a basic system. In the process of socialist construction, we overcame suppression, sabotage, and armed provocations by imperialist and hegemonic powers, and brought about the most extensive and profound social changes in the history of the Chinese nation.

This great transformation of China from a poor and backward country in the east with a large population into a socialist country laid down the fundamental political conditions and the institutional foundation necessary for realizing national rejuvenation. Through tenacious struggle, the party and the Chinese people showed the world that the Chinese people were capable of not only dismantling the old world, but also building a new one, that only socialism could save China, and that only socialism with Chinese characteristics could develop China.
