Shen Yueyue, vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) and president of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), joined a panel discussion in Beijing on October 18 with delegates from the southeast province of Fujian who are attending the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Shen said the congress is a fundamental meeting for the country. It is held during an era focused on securing a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and striving for the great success of socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era.

Shen said the report delivered at the congress by Xi Jinping is a positive and pragmatic document containing a broad vision and profound thought which concerns the future of the socialism with Chinese characteristics and the vital interests of the people.

Meanwhile, it is a political declaration and program of action for the Party to usher in a new era and roll out a new chapter, she added.

Under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi as its core leader, and since the 18th CPC National Congress, the Party and country have made historic achievements and unprecedented changes. On this matter, Shen offered the following remarks:

The leadership of the Party has been comprehensively strengthened. All Party members have actively safeguarded the authority and the unified leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi as its core leader. Xi has won great support and respect from the whole Party, the army and the people of all ethnic groups across the country. The so-called "Four Consciousnesses" of the Party members as well as the Party's unification and fighting force have been significantly enhanced.

People-centered development ideas have been stuck to, and achieving the aspiration that people have for a better life has been set as a goal. In the meantime, a series of effective measures have been taken to help people gain a sense of fulfillment and happiness.

Unprecedented efforts and resolutions have been made to promote reform in an all-round way as well as continue to advance the national governance system and capacity of modernization.

China has unswervingly pushed forward the rule of law in an all-round way. The Party's leadership in legislative work and the quality of legislation, as well as law enforcement, have been constantly strengthened. More and more people have felt justice and fairness in each judicial case.

Comprehensive and strict Party governance has been secured, which has achieved unprecedented results.

At the meeting, Shen also summarized several highlights of Xi's report. She said:

The theme of the report centering on adhering to and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics reflects the Party's aim to "remain true to its original mission" as well as its firm political stance of marching forward. It has indicated that the Party has confidence and resolves to hold high the banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics; secure a decisive victory in building a well-off society in an all-round way; and, strive for the great success of socialism with Chinese characteristics in a new era.

The biggest highlight of the report is to consider Xi's thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era as the Party's guideline, which is full of epoch-making significance.

The report made a thorough summary of various undertakings over the past five years, which have greatly strengthened the "Four Confidences" and the determination to realize the "Chinese Dream."

Making the major political judgment that socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era marks a new height for the Party and the country's development.

Using the thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era to arm the whole Party provides an ideological guideline to strengthen the construction of the Party.

Shen said all women federation officials should firmly safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee with Xi as its core leader and obey its unified leadership.

Shen also urged all officials to thoroughly learn the spirit of the CPC's 19th National Congress and carry out their work accordingly.

Efforts should be made to promote economic, political, cultural, social, and ecological progress and the Four-Pronged Comprehensive Strategy to ensure the implementation of the CPC Central Committee's deployment.

Furthermore, Shen urged all officials to seriously implement the requirements of comprehensive and strict Party governance, show loyalty to the Party and abide by the political discipline.
