The President of the People’s Republic of China XI Jinping once said: “The youth is the most lively and vigorous generation who is full of dreams and passion. The country will not be flourishing without their efforts and the country will only be strong if the youth contribute its strength. If the great youth generation has ideals and responsibilities, the country will have its future and the nation will have its hope. ‘Chinese dream’ is ours but more belongs to the younger generation. The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will come to reality eventually with the contribution of our younger generation. To achieve the spectacular ‘Chinese dream’ for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the theme for the Chinese youth movement. The country, the nation and every single Chinese including the youth are aiming for the same, which is, to achieve the ‘Chinese dream’. A man who achieved the ‘Chinese dream’ could also obtain his own individual goal. A man will be successful only if he integrates his individual goal into the dream of achieving the prosperity of the nation and the country.”
