20th CPC National Congress: Delegates share thoughts on report
At Sunday's opening session of the 20th CPC National Congress, Xi Jinping delivered a report on behalf of the 19th CPC Central Committee at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Here's what some delegates had to say after listening to the report.
XIE MINGYONG Academician, Chinese Academy of Engineering "I was pursuing a doctorate degree at the University of Bonn in Germany from 1993 to 1997. After I finished my studies in 1998, I immediately returned to my hometown Nanchang in Jiangxi Province. Today, I feel very excited and proud as a delegate to the 20th CPC National Congress.
"In the report, what impressed me most was the discussion on education, science and technology, and talents. It points out that they are the foundational and strategic pillars for building a modern socialist country.
"As a university professor, the most important thing is cultivating talent, because in fact, the core element of innovation is talent. Also, what our country needs most now is all kinds of high-level talent, such as masters, strategic scientists, leading talents, and young scientific and technological workers. To cultivate talent is an inescapable responsibility of a university professor."
ZHAO SHENGLIANG Party Chief Dunhuang Academy "The report mentioned several times that we should pay attention to inheriting and carrying forward the excellent traditional Chinese culture, which makes us very encouraged. In the Dunhuang culture, we understand that Chinese culture has such a grand and rich content, and more importantly, we experience our cultural confidence from it. China has been full of self-confidence since ancient times, because a confident nation is open, and not afraid of foreign cultures coming in. We are very open to absorbing foreign culture, and then inheriting and innovating."
