President Xi Jinping presented national medals and honorary titles of the People's Republic of China (PRC) to awardees in the Great Hall of the People on Sunday morning.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, helped the awardees wear the medals and shook hands with them.

Recipients represent distinguished Chinese dedicated to the causes of the Party and people, Xi said after presenting the medals.

Xi called on honorees to continue working and influencing more people, and urged Chinese society to respect and learn from heroes.

The red and golden Medals of the Republic were awarded to individuals who made great contributions to the construction and development of the People's Republic of China, while the golden and blue Friendship Medals represented the long-standing friendship between the people of China and the rest of the world.

The medals for recipients of national honorary titles were granted to those who made outstanding contributions in various fields.
