National legislators vowed to better heed the call of the people and address their concerns after being inspired by the speech delivered by President Xi Jinping at the closing meeting of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress on Monday.

Xi mentioned "people" many times in his speech, which shows that he always puts their interests first, and he has made addressing their concerns the top priority for the new central leadership, said Li Yanfeng, an NPC deputy from the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region and curator of a local library.

"As an NPC deputy, I will attach greater importance to listening to people's voices and helping them solve their problems during my term," said Li, a member of the Zhuang ethnic group.

Joya Bahet, an NPC deputy from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and staff member at the Altay prefecture Culture Museum, vowed to take on more responsibility and not let the people down.

"As President Xi said, it's up to our generation to make the country stronger and pursue the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation," said Joya, a member of the Kazak ethnic group. "I will carry out more research at the grassroots level during my term, so I can learn about people's needs and ensure that they can be properly addressed."

Xi said the people's trust is the biggest motivation that drives him to march on and a great responsibility he shoulders.

"I will faithfully fulfill my responsibilities bestowed by the Constitution, with the nation's needs as my mission and the people's interests my yardstick."

Xi's words are from the bottom of his heart because he is truly devoted to the people and making China prosper, said Liu Rui, an NPC deputy from Zhejiang province and head of the Yangtze Delta Region Institute of Tsinghua University's Institute of Ecological Environment.

"Xi said it's his third term as the Chinese president, and he won't let the people down. And I believe not letting people down should be the goal of all NPC deputies, who bear greater responsibilities," Liu said.

Xi was unanimously elected president of the People's Republic of China and chairman of the Central Military Commission of the PRC on Friday at the first session of the 14th NPC, China's national legislature.
