On October 27, 2017,
at the first group study session of the Political Bureau of the 19th CPC Central Committee which General Secretary Xi Jinping presided over,
he required that “leaders not only shoulder responsibility, but also be able to get things done.”
General Secretary Xi Jinping attaches great importance to the spirit of responsibility.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress,
General Secretary Xi Jinping has pointed out repeatedly in his important speeches
that responsibility is required for leaders,
stressing that they should be responsible
because responsibility decides how successful work can be.
China and the world both features prominently in the talks of General Secretary Xi Jinping about the Spirit of Responsibility.
In his view, the Spirit of Responsibility is not just for "the great effort to realize the Chinese dream”,
but for "building a community with a shared future for mankind and achieving shared and win-win development" as well.
General Secretary Xi Jinping set himself an example to others.
In 2014, when General Secretary Xi Jinping
took an interview with a Russian television station in Sochi, Russia, he said:
"My idea of governance, in a nutshell, is:
Serve the people, take on the responsibility.”
He regards the responsibility for the people as a vocation,
keeps people in his heart, stays emotionally close to the people,
works for the people, and implements the idea of “identification with the hopes of the people”
and “the political power coming from the people”.
The Spirit of Responsibility gives confidence to the people and hope to the world.
The CPC has won the respect and love of the Chinese people for its spirit of serving the people
and the Chinese government has won the understanding
and support of all countries in the world for being a responsible major country.
The reason why General Secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized the Spirit of Responsibility
is that "we cannot be worthy of the age, of the people, and worthy of history," unless we assume responsibility.
