Move forward on Xi's remark
The General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping has said: "Making empty talk is harmful to the nation, while doing practical jobs can help it thrive". This is not only a sign that the Party is determined to change its working and talking style, but also a serious reflection on history that will lead to China's rejuvenation, says an article on eastday.com. Excerpts:
Xi's remark can be traced back to Deng Xiaoping, who first used it while addressing local leaders in Hubei province on his inspection tour of South China in 1992. Deng's speeches made on the southern tour has opened compatriots' mind and served as the driving force of China's reform and opening-up, and the country's fast development.
