The rejuvenation of the Chinese nation entails great cultural and ethical advancement, and also tremendous material progress.

It has continued building consensus and pooling strength with the help of core socialist values.

Xi's discourses in this regard serve as an important guide for the country's education efforts on ideals and convictions, its cultivation and practice of core socialist values, its advancement in etiquette and civility, and its society-wide improvement of civic-mindedness. ■
