The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China concluded on Tuesday. "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era" was added to the CPC Constitution, a major event for the CPC which has been advancing with the times.

This means the CPC has a new guiding principle to lead the country and its people forward. The Party adheres more to modern thoughts and shares its destiny with the general public. It will share the destiny of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era.

At the initial stage of the founding of the CPC, China was beset with hardships and difficulties. Once the CPC imported Marxism from Europe, it held high the banner of this theory. On the other hand, the CPC was dedicated to sinicizing it so that it could serve China's revolution and development in a more practical and compelling manner.

From Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory to Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, all are the major achievements of the sinicization of Marxism.

They chart a socialist path for China and ensure the continuity of the path in a changing global landscape. They also empower the CPC in different eras to cope with different challenges and accumulate strength for China's socialist cause.

One of the reasons that the CPC led China, once an impoverished country, to embark on the path of socialism and achieved great success is that the CPC never forgets why it started and advances with the times. It overcame historical nihilism and dogmatism and seeks truth from facts. It grows and expands. The more severe the challenges, the stronger the CPC becomes.

General-Secretary Xi of the CPC Central Committee is leading the country into a new era. China has had an unprecedented foundation for its strength, but it also bears unprecedented pressure.

How to solve all kinds of major problems in the new era? How to utilize China's strength? How to make the win-win principle transcend traditional geopolitics among major powers? Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era will lead us to the answers.

For a certain time in the past, the country was developing fast. But there were fierce discussions about what direction the country should go to and what path it should take. The situation changed after the 18th National Congress of the CPC. It is believed that after the 19th Party Congress, the whole of society will be clear about these issues through the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

China is too large a country and it is difficult to unite. Past crises in a certain region or in a certain field generated an overwhelming negative impact on all of society.

The unity of China cannot be simply formed through institutions. A powerful guiding principle will serve as the basis for national unity.

The inclusion of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era into the CPC Constitution paves the way for the CPC to embark on a new journey. This holds enormous significance for both the CPC and the country. Xi Jinping Thought will make China stand upright in the new era.
