New Year wishes and sincere greetings.
Liu Jieyi said that 2019 is a year of great significance to Taiwan's work. General Secretary Xi Jinping delivered an important speech at the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the "Commission to the Compatriots in Taiwan", providing a fundamental guide and action guide for Taiwan work in the new era. The Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China clarified the goals and tasks of adhering to and improving the "one country, two systems" system in the new era, and promoting the peaceful reunification of the motherland. Over the past year, we have thoroughly implemented the important speech of General Secretary Jinping and the spirit of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, thoroughly implemented the central government ’s decision-making and deployment of Taiwan work, adhered to the "peaceful reunification, one country, two systems" policy, and resolutely opposed any form of "Taiwan independence" secessionist activities. To help Taiwan compatriots solve their problems and make profits, and to promote cross-strait relations in the direction of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech.
Liu Jieyi said that this year, we practiced people-centered development thinking, continued to deepen cross-strait integration and development, and focused on doing practical things, doing good things, and solving difficulties for Taiwan compatriots; focusing on the theme of achieving a great national rejuvenation and benefiting compatriots on both sides of the strait. To discuss with Taiwan compatriots and work together to promote the development of cross-strait relations. The compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Straits have overcome the difficulties, the people-to-people exchanges and exchanges have remained enthusiastic, and the interests of the compatriots have become closer. The tide of cross-strait exchanges and cooperation and compatriots hand in hand is rolling forward, and very few people are trying to move against the tide and against the hearts of the people, and they must not succeed.
Liu Jieyi said that on the occasion of celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, hundreds of Taiwan compatriots were invited to come to Beijing to observe the ceremony and participate in a series of celebrations. Together, they can feel the pride of the country's prosperity and national rejuvenation, and share the glory and prosperity of the motherland. I have a deeper understanding that if cross-strait relations are good, the majority of Taiwan compatriots will be good, and Taiwan will have a future.
Liu Jieyi pointed out that 2020 is the year when we will build a well-off society in an all-round way and the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", and it will be an important node in the journey of the Chinese nation toward the great era of revival. Cross-strait relations have entered a new year and embarked on the path of peaceful development, so that the majority of Taiwan compatriots can fully enjoy the "bonus" benefits. On the contrary, if very few people continue to create opposition and hostility between the two sides of the strait, the interests and welfare of the vast number of Taiwan compatriots will be seriously damaged. The bright prospects for the peaceful development of cross-strait relations require the joint efforts of compatriots on both sides of the strait, and the correct grasp of the majority of Taiwan compatriots. The trend towards the reunification of the motherland is irresistible. We will continue to thoroughly implement the important speech of General Secretary Jinping and the spirit of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, and make unremitting efforts to promote the peaceful development of cross-strait relations and the peaceful reunification of the motherland. We hope that the majority of Taiwan compatriots will respond to the general situation, seize the opportunity, and work with us to write a new chapter for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!
