“In 2013, we made an overall arrangement on comprehensively deepening reform, drawing a grand blueprint for the country’s future development,” Xi said in an address televised by state broadcasters.
“In 2014, we will make new strides along the path of reform.”
Addressing domestic and foreign audiences, Xi said the fundamental purpose of reforms is to make Chinese society fair and just and people’s lives better.
“We have made numerous glories in the great cause of reform and opening-up. I firmly believe that new glories will be awaiting the Chinese people,” he said.
China’s ruling Communist Party announced on Monday that Xi will head a group to steer economic and social reforms in the country.
This is the latest among a series of important announcements that succeeded the reform blueprint put forward at the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC meet held in November. The November meet resulted in major reforms like relaxing China’s one-child policy and further freeing up markets.
