BEIJING, May 29 (Xinhua) -- Why is China so calm and confident in the face of a trade war? Amid challenges, the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee with Xi Jinping at the core is the source of confidence for today's China.

Fully aware of the long-term and complex nature of both domestic and international unfavorable factors, China must get well-prepared for any difficult circumstance.

The most important thing for China is to do its job well. The key to achieving this lies in the CPC.

Since its founding in 1921, the CPC has grown from a revolutionary party to a long-term ruling party, always aspiring to fight for people's wellbeing and achieve national rejuvenation.

In today's China, a series of innovative and fundamental institutional arrangements have been put into place, bringing into full play the greatest strength of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics.

The arrangements for deepening reform and opening-up, poverty alleviation, and environmental protection unroll a clearer governance structure of the CPC Central Committee and its enhanced capacity in guiding the overall situation and coordinating work of all sides.

On multiple multilateral and bilateral platforms including APEC meetings and G20 summits, President Xi has promoted major country diplomacy, advocated Chinese proposition, presented Chinese approach, and delivered the voices of China, injecting positive energy to the global economic development.

The CPC is strong not because it is the ruling party. Rather, the Party rules because it is strong, and a very important aspect of this strength is its tight organizational structure and strong organizational capacity.

In its final push to eradicate extreme poverty, China has lifted over 10 million people out of poverty annually for six consecutive years.

In the battlefield against poverty, each Party organization is a fighting fortress and each Party member is a flying banner. This is the root cause of the miracle in the human history of poverty alleviation.

With nearly 90 million members and over 4.5 million Party organizations, the CPC will rally an even stronger force to forge ahead for the good of the people.

The 19th CPC National Congress held in October 2017 laid out a grand blueprint for China's bid to build itself into a great modern socialist country in about 30 years.

Numerous efforts have since been put into developing a modernized economy, promoting high-quality development, building China into a country of innovators, pursuing a rural vitalization strategy and the coordinated regional development strategy, improving the socialist market economy, pursuing opening up on all fronts, among others.

With the willpower to carry out the blueprint all the way, the CPC is mapping out and advancing its work in reform and development in a well-rounded manner.

Reform forms a distinct character of CPC members and a spectacular scene of contemporary China.

With scientific decision-making and sound economic fundamentals, the CPC Central Committee has not only enhanced China's faith in development but also stabilized the international community's expectations of China.

On May 23, a prototype magnetic-levitation train with a designed top speed of 600 km per hour was rolled off in the eastern city of Qingdao.

Also in May, the Beijing Daxing International Airport, which covers an area 63 times the size of the Tian'anmen Square, completed its first test flight of passenger planes after four years of construction.

Behind all these symbols of "Chinese speed" lies the powerful "Chinese engine": the centripetal, uniting and acting power of the CPC as it unites and leads Chinese people's endeavors ahead.

As long as the Party has strength, so will the people and the country.

With the strong leadership of the CPC, the significant advantage of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and the great efforts of the Chinese people pulling together, there is no hardship that China cannot overcome.
