Five years of progress

The Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway is one of the seven expressways connecting Beijing and other major cities under a national expressway plan. With a total length of 2,540 kilometers, it is the longest highway in the world that crosses desert. Once operational, it will cut more than 1,300 km off the journey from Beijing to Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region in northwestern China. [Photo/VCG]

The past five years have been a time of struggle, but they have also been a time of advancement for the nation, as the top leadership, with President Xi Jinping as the core, has identified major tasks and taken strategic initiatives and adopted significant policies to accomplish them.

In doing so, a number of historical achievements have been made that have consolidated the people's confidence in the country's governance and development path.

Due to the leadership's unwavering implementation of a series of new development concepts, and its thorough advancement of supply-side structural reforms, the country has taken big strides toward higher-quality, more efficient, fairer and more sustainable development.

And the all-out efforts to carry out comprehensive and deepened reforms have led to the establishment of a basic framework for China's modern governance, with great achievements made in the efforts to push forward the rule of law in order to have laws that are fair, a judiciary that is impartial and enforcement that is principled.

At the same time, the leadership has been making great efforts to establish a good surrounding and international environment for the country's future development by advancing a new type of major-country diplomacy and building cooperative relationships that are mutually beneficial, an approach to international relations that has been widely recognized by the international community and which is helping to realize China's proposal that countries work together to forge a community of shared destiny for all.

The past five years since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China have also been a time in which the Party has resolutely strived for strict self-governance, and the unprecedented and effective anti-corruption campaign launched and resolutely pursued by the top leadership has consolidated support for the Party's governance and offered a solid political guarantee for the nation's development cause.
