On September 30, President Xi Jinping and other Communist Party of China and state leaders are to attend the ceremony of presenting wreaths to People's Heroes on Martyrs Day in Tiananmen Square, center of Beijing. 

On October 1, 1949, the birth of the new China had ushered in a national rejuvenation. The Chinese people started to make their upmost to achieve prosperity.

October 1, 2015 marks the 66th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Sixty-six is a lucky number for China. Sixty-six years are just a short span  for overall human development.

Especially in the past 30 years since reform and opening-up, China has developed from an underdeveloped  country into the world's second largest economy.

It's the world's largest in regards to manufacturing, trade, foreign exchange reserves, steel production and  agriculture, including grain output.

China's social productivity, comprehensive power and international status have made historic leaps. Chinese living standards have improved dramatically.

Ever since the CPC's 18th National Congress in 2012, Xi Jinping has led the country. Accordingly, economic development has entered a new normal period.

Beijing's honest administration has boosted social harmony and stability to support the Chinese dream. China, with a quarter of the world’s population, has faced numerous challenges, but will soon become the center of the world stage again.

2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the victory of Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War and the World Anti-Fascist War. China held a military parade on September 3. Beijing and Washington had achieved fruitful results during Xi’s recent state visit to the US.

At summits marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. Beijing expanded its global development plans, advocating for win-win cooperation initiatives.

China will implement UN-designated post-2015 development goals with strong commitments. Xi has demonstrated that he's a leader for the world's stage, paving the way for China to become a more powerful nation.

Facing a downturn of the global economy, China's economy has remained steady with strong economic growth rates despite of some difficulties.

China's economic growth had accounted for 27.8% of the world's economic growth in 2014, and contributed to more than 50% of economic growth in Asia.

Beijing has focused on common development, to benefit China, the rest of Asia and Europe. Xi is promoting the ancient Silk Road’s spirit by putting forward the One Belt, One Road initiative.

More than 50 countries have expressed an interest to participate. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the Silk Road Fund have already been established.

At the UN Sustainable Development Summit on September 26, President Xi highlighted China's commitments to achieving UN-designated post-2015 development goals: establishing a fund to support South-South cooperation with an initial pledge of 2 billion U.S. Dollars.

Xi has promised to raise its investment in the least developed countries to 12 billion dollars by 2030; eliminating some  debt for those countries; establishing an international development intelligence center, while building a global energy internet.

The 1.3 billion Chinese people are pursuing the "two hundred years" rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with persistent efforts.

Beijing endorses world peace and development. The Old ancient Chinese civilization can burst its dazzling brilliance yet again.
