BEIJING, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping Monday said all Chinese should make persistent efforts to realize the country's two centenary goals and fulfill the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks when visiting an exhibition here displaying China's outstanding achievements over the past five years.
Other members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, including Li Keqiang, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan and Zhang Gaoli, also visited the exhibition.
The Chinese Dream concept was put forward by Xi five years ago when he attended a 2012 exhibition themed "The Road Toward Renewal," at which he said achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream for the nation in modern times.
Commending the "historic progress and changes" that have taken place in China over the past five years, Xi said efforts must be made to inspire public confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics.
Party members and all Chinese should stay motivated, forge ahead and make persistent efforts to realize the country's two centenary goals, fulfill the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation, and prepare for the upcoming 19th National Congress of the CPC, he said.
