At the crucial event, the CPC reviewed its milestones in the past 72 years in the leadership of China and also its 100 years of existence.
The strides of China in today’s world are attributable to the CPC that has managed the world’s most populous country to global limelight in all spheres.

The seven targets the CPC aims to accomplish include: “starting a new journey to build a modern socialist country in all respects in the historical context of the Party’s centenary; upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era; strengthening our consciousness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, follow the leadership core, and keep in alignment with the central Party leadership; enhancing our confidence in the path, theory, system, and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics; resolutely upholding Comrade Xi Jinping’s core position on the Central Committee and in the Party as a whole and upholding the Central Committee’ authority and its centralized, unified leadership to ensure that all Party members act in unison advancing the Party’s self-reform, building our fighting strength, strengthening our capacity to respond to risks and challenges, and maintaining our vigor and vitality; and uniting and leading the people in making continued efforts to realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.”
The CPC leadership also challenged that “All Party members should uphold historical materialism and adopt a rational outlook on the Party’s history. Looking back on the Party’s endeavors over the past century, we can see why we were successful in the past and how we can continue to succeed in the future. This will ensure that we act with greater resolve and a stronger sense of purpose in staying true to our Party’s founding mission, and that we more effectively uphold and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.”
It was highlighted at the session that the Party has had a glorious journey over the past hundred years. Since its founding in 1921, the Party has made seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation its mission. Staying committed to communist ideals and socialist convictions, it united and led the Chinese people in working tirelessly to achieve national independence and the liberation of the people and then to make our country prosperous and strong and bring happiness to the people. The endeavors of the Party and the people over the past century represent the most magnificent chapter in the millennia-long history of the Chinese nation.
