It is the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core that has played a decisive role in leading the country forward when storms struck, Li said.

Wang Yang, chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee, told deputies from Sichuan Province that over the past year, China's strategic achievements in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic and the country's complete victory in poverty eradication are fundamentally attributed to Xi's leadership.

While deliberating with Heilongjiang Province deputies, Zhao Leji, secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, stressed full and faithful implementation of the new development philosophy, urging the province to foster competitive strengths by leveraging the advantages in policy, resources, and ecology to make new progress in revitalizing the province.

Zhao also called on commissions for discipline inspection and supervisory agencies at all levels to focus on the big picture of the country's modernization drive to perform their supervisory duties.
