China has entered the Year of the Rooster, the same year in the Chinese zodiac when the Communist Party of China (CPC) was founded in 1921.
The Chinese president's desire to forge a better world based on dialogue and mutual respect has inspired people from across the world. For many, his vision warrants a more rational and fair version of globalization.
Rooted in China's commitment to mutual respect and win-win cooperation in international relations, his charisma has become a globally recognized signature and knit his country and the world together more tightly.
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday called for more efforts to carry out reforms in the coming year, stressing policy coordination and responsibility.
The endorsement of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, as the core leader at the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee in late October was perhaps the most attention-grabbing event of China's political calendar this year.
