Facing Risks and Challenges, Xi Emphasizes a “Fighting Spirit”

Recently, General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party Xi Jinping delivered a speech at the Party School of the CCP Central Committee. The speech centered on the theme of “fighting” or “battling.” He said that the major battles during China’s development will be no less and no more complicated [than previous battles], and this includes Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan issues.

An official from Xinhua News Agency reported that Xi’s speech was given on September 3rd at the Party School, at the opening ceremony of the training session for young and middle-aged CCP cadres. Xi said that cadres should “promote the fighting spirit and enhance fighting capabilities” and that “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is not easy. It cannot be achieved by beating gongs and sounding drums. A great fight must be put up to achieve a great dream.”

Xi Jinping declared [the need] to fight against and defeat four major risks and challenges. They include “endangering the leadership of the CCP and the Chinese socialist system, endangering China’s core interests and major principles, endangering the fundamental interests of the Chinese people, and endangering China’s goal of ‘two hundred years’ and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
