Never Fail the People

Xi Jinping: The Governance of China III Updated: 2021-12-29

Never Fail the People* 

March 22, 2019 

Running such a huge country is a grave responsibility, and it brings arduous work. I will fully commit to the people and never fail them. I am ready to put aside my own interests and devote my all to China's development. 

A weightlifter can lift only a 50-kg barbell at the beginning. But through proper training he may achieve as much as 250 kg. I believe that through my work, through the concerted effort of more than 1.3 billion Chinese, we can definitely take on this weighty responsibility and build our country well. In this I am fully confident; the Chinese people are fully confident.
