greeted the premier.
Faced with hundreds of students, Wen congratulated on the 70 years of
establishment of the university, and expected the students to better develop
themselves in three aspects:
First, students should stick to the study style of blending theory with
practice, better understand the society and national situation, have a good
command of theory. In the meantime, they should devote themselves to turning
theory into practice. Only in this way can they shoulder the heavy task of
building the motherland.
Secondly, students should be dedicated to pursuing truth. They should learn
to think independently, be brave in innovation, and surpass their predecessors.
Thirdly, students should have a strong sense of responsibility for the nation
and the people. The deeper their love of the nation and the people, the stronger
their sense of responsibility will be. The students were also encouraged to stay
away from ostentation and to be conscientious in their study.
Wen's speech gained rapturous applauses.
