Xi Jinping (M), the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, has visited the Chinese National Museum’s grand exhibition "Road to Revival", recalling a century of history starting from the Opium War in 1840.

Xi Jinping says that the exhibition is very educational and gives people enlightenment. The Chinese nation suffered much misery and gave huge sacrifice in the past, but the Chinese people never yielded and finally mastered their own destiny. After which, Chinese people began the great process of the construction of their country, which fully demonstrates their great national spirit centered on patriotism.

He said, "Summing up the historical experience since the reform and opening up, we finally found the right road to achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation after constant painstaking exploration. This road is socialism with Chinese characteristics. The future of the Chinese nation can be said is a "hard journey, but will end in success". Since 1840, we have never stopped fighting and the bright prospect of the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has been shown. We can all feel that we are now closer to this goal than in any period in history, and we now have more confidence and ability to achieve this goal than in any period in history."

Xi Jinping also talked about the dream of achieving the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

He said, "I think that achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest Chinese dream in modern times. Because the dream carries a long-cherished wish of generations of Chinese people. It reflects the interests of the Chinese people as a whole, and it’s a common expectation of the Chinese nation. History tells us that the personal future and destiny of each one of us are closely connected with the future of this country. The people can live well only when our country and nation develop well. This glorious dream requires tireless efforts of generations of Chinese people."

Xi Jinping urged all party members to unite the people of all nationalities, and build the party and the country. He expressed firm belief that by the time the Communist party of China is 100-year-old, a moderately prosperous society in all aspects will be achieved. And by the time the People’s Republic of China is 100-year-old, it can definitely build a prosperous, democratic, civilized and harmonious socialist modern country. Xi said he was even more convinced that the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will be realized.

Starting from the Opium War, the exhibition, with more than 1200 cultural relics and 870 pictures, follows the dramatic struggles of the nation against imperialist oppression. In particular, it looks at the rejuvenation of the country under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. It also shows the transformation of China into an independent, democratic and prosperous modern nation.
