The process of rejuvenation is a journey that requires persistence and visionary policies. In the Chinese internal as well as foreign policy, the major attributes of a grand vision have been orchestrated by President Xi Jinping. Every five years, Communist Party of China (CPC) holds a key congress. Now, the 20th party congress will take place in Beijing before year-end. The visionary statesman, President Xi, is expected to secure a third term as a leader of China. Due to his effective strategies and robust plans, the country is steering on the path of national rejuvenation in this new era.  It is significant to highlight that over the past century, hundreds of millions of Chinese have dedicated themselves to realizing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Their contribution will go down in the annals of history and their epic deeds will be remembered by posterity.

Undoubtedly, President Xi has played a major role and introduced great reforms to lift the population out of poverty. In the last four decades, China has completely eradicated poverty to its core with efficacious planning and policies. With a people-centered approach and sustainable initiatives, the country has enhanced its global outreach and socioeconomic development. The success story has also marked a new era for China on its path toward modernization under the 20th congress, which is the most important political event to be held at the end of 2022.  President Xi Jinping has always taken the development of democracy as a matter of comprehensive and far-reaching significance. To ensure the people's principal position, improve the performance of the Party and the state, and arouse the people's enthusiasm, he has expanded socialist democracy, advanced electoral democracy, and developed consultative democracy.

Openness, inclusiveness and mutual learning are the defining features of Chinese foreign policy. Moreover, interaction and interdependence are the general trends promoted by China under the dynamic statesmanship of President Xi. In the 20th   national congress, the Party will analyze China's two-stage development plan toward the middle of the 21st century and outline strategic tasks for the next five years in particular.  It is anticipated that socialist modernization will be realized in China by 2035, and the country will be developed into a great modern socialist nation that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, and harmonious. This rejuvenation will mark a brand new chapter for the Chinese nation and people in this crucial time of achieving Party’s second centenary goals.

Every generation of Party members has fulfilled its respective missions and kept moving forward. The ideals of communism can only be realized by the Party based on fully developed and highly advanced socialism. China believes that if it keeps combating issues with sufficient effort over generations, landmark progress can be achieved. For national rejuvenation, the CPC and the people will pass on the torch from one generation to the next, with each generation fulfilling its duties for the benefit of the next. The Party adheres to its fundamental aim of serving the people and always maintains close ties.

With courage and determination, China has succeeded in blazing a new trail from the unknown to the realms of freedom. All its endeavors have advanced the cause of socialism in the country with a shared forward-looking spirit. As the core of the CPC, President Xi has developed plans with logic and kept pace with the trends of the times, constantly adjusting strategies and policies in accordance with changing circumstances and needs of the people. These proactive steps have made him the most popular leader in the world and enhanced his chances of maintaining his position as the president of China in the coming times. To tap into the trends of peace, cooperation, multi-polarity, economic globalization, and democracy in international relations, China has always emphasized mutual learning and respect.

In all of its endeavors in revolution, reconstruction and reform, the CPC has always proceeded from reality rather than placing its faith in books or established authority. It has constantly explored new paths, free from hidebound restrictions and proscriptive models. Under these assertions, it has been clear that the 20th national congress will establish a roadmap for the next five years of China, along with major plans to combat common challenges and provide an impetus to broader regional cooperation.
