Building a moderately well-off society by 2020, just before the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, and building a prosperous, modern socialist country by 2049, the 100th anniversary of the founding of New China, are the two centenary goals put forward by General Secretary Xi Jinping as the Party's historical task and practical direction for the country to achieve the Chinese Dream.

Demonstrating his scientific understanding of China's development objectives, Xi has pointed out that development is still the country's top priority, and the primary mission of the Party is to improve people's livelihoods.

The country is at a critical stage in realizing the two goals, in particular, it is now in the decisive stage if it is to realize the first of the two goals. In this critical period, Xi's thoughts on governance provide scientific guidance for successfully realizing a moderately well-off society by 2020.

Xi has established himself as a strong leading force for achieving the two centenary goals. And as the communiqué of the Sixth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China pointed out, Xi being the core of the leadership is of great significance for both the Party and the country.

Cementing Xi's status as the core of the Party was the fundamental guarantee that the Party will stay true to its mission and enhances the Party's leadership in developing the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

As the leader of the Party, military and the nation, Xi has made a series of practical and historically significant achievements in advancing reform and development, internal affairs and the country's diplomacy, as well as in governance.

In doing so, the Party has won wide support from people of all ethnic groups and high praise from the international community, and the country has moved ever closer to achieving the two centenary goals.

The core leadership of General Secretary Xi guarantees the successful construction of the socialist cause with Chinese characteristics, which lays a solid foundation for the attainment of the two centenary goals.

Since the 18th National Congress, Xi's thoughts on governance have become the important guidance for the Chinese people to achieve the two centenary goals.

Xi's thoughts on governance are in accordance with the development trends of the world and contemporary China, and in response to the actual demands of the people. They have deepened the CPC's understanding of the laws of governance, construction of socialism and social development, which has formed new thoughts, new ideas and new strategies for governance. Xi's core leadership is thus of great significance to the prosperity, stability and harmony of the country.

According to Xi's new thoughts and ideas on governance, the CPC has carried out a series of significant strategic measures and policies, solved a series of long-lasting problems and achieved a series of significant tasks. The Party's new thoughts, ideas and strategy formed in practice have not only strongly promoted China's development since the 18th National Congress, but also provided a "Chinese plan" for the common problems developing countries face in the process of modernization.

In general, the two centenary goals are the solemn promise that the CPC has made to the Chinese people. And the Chinese people are confident of building a well-off society in an all-around way under the guidance of the CPC with Xi as the core.
