Ambassador Lyu expressed the highlights of President Xi Jinping’s important speech at the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Reform and Opening Up.

President Xi minutely planned a series of strategic plans for unswervingly and comprehensively deepening reform and expanding opening to the outside world, and clearly issued a great call for remaining true to our original aspiration, remembering our mission, and carrying out the reform and opening up to the end.

Ambassador Lyu stressed that direction determines the future and road determines destiny. President Xi Jinping's important speech is of great theoretical and practical value as well as great practical significance and far-reaching historical significance for inspiring and encouraging Chinese people at home and abroad to continue to push forward the reform and opening-up in the new era, in order to realize the Two Centenary Goals and the Chinese dream of great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Ambassador Lyu said that in the process of China's reform and opening up, overseas Chinese are witnesses, participants, beneficiaries and contributors, playing a unique and irreplaceable role in China's modernization development. At the same time, overseas Chinese have also drawn strength from the prosperity and progress of the country, and their economic strength and social status have been promoted simultaneously. Overseas Chinese in Thailand have long been concerned about, supporting and participating in China's reform and opening up process. They’ve made important contributions to China's modernization, economic and social development in Thailand and the cause of China-Thailand friendship. The Embassy in Thailand expresses its sincere appreciation to them.

Ambassador Lyu proposed that, from the new starting point of the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, it is hoped that overseas Chinese in Thailand would continue to be a firm supporter of China's reform and opening up, a firm promoter of China-Thailand friendship, a firm promoter of China's peaceful reunification and a firm practitioner of harmonious overseas Chinese communities. The Embassy is willing to work hand in hand with all overseas Chinese in Thailand to promote their development to a new brilliance, and to work together for advancing reform and opening up and the realization of the Chinese dream of great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation!
