“The Chinese people’s desire for an improved quality of life is the objective we have been working hard to achieve, and the ultimate aim of implementing reforms and fostering progress is to enhance the well-being of the population,” stated Xi.

However, he stressed the importance of identifying the crucial areas for reform and making significant progress based on the urgent concerns and desires of the public such as employment, income growth, education, healthcare, housing, government services, childcare, elderly care, personal safety, and property security.
