On April 26, 2016,
Xi Jinping stressed during his meeting with intellectuals, model workers and youth representatives,
“Model workers are outstanding representatives of the working people and the most beautiful workers.
What they show us—to love what they do, wholeheartedly devote to their job, strive for the best,
work diligently, be brave in innovation, be indifferent to fame and wealth, and be willing to dedicate
—vividly reflects the great spirit of the time.”
General Secretary Xi Jinping always cares about workers and respects their work.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress,
he repeatedly mentioned work and workers at different occasions
and called on the Chinese nation to carry forward the “dedication of model workers.”
We should vigorously promote model workers’ dedication to their job in the whole society,
and popularize model workers and typical exemplary deeds
to guide the public to establish the awareness to work arduously, honestly, and creatively.
In doing so, we shall establish the tone of our day—to honor work and to value creation
—and generalize the idea that work is the greatest, the most glorious, noble, and beautiful thing.
“I would willingly soil myself so that thousands of households are clean,” said nightman Shi Chuanxiang.
According to the “Iron Man” Wang Jinxi,
“I worked desperately to find big oilfields even if that would cost me 20 years of life.”
Yuan Longping, the “father of hybrid rice,” enriches the barn of China with persistent efforts…
Since 1950, the Party Central Committee and the State Council have held 15 national conferences successively
to commend a total of 10,667 advanced collectives and 31,215 advanced individuals.
These model workers at different posts realize their value with the same dedication.
Their creation, innovation, and career
support the dream of a country and a nation.
For building a moderately prosperous society in all respects,
billions of workers in China are the major force.
Hopefully, all our workers can follow the examples of these role models to love what they do,
devote wholeheartedly to work, work diligently, forge ahead determinedly, and strive to create,
which would compose the never-ending song of the workers in the new era.
