2019 New Years speech

Keeping forging ahead, aiming at being first-class——2019 New Year's speech

The year of 2018 is coming to an end, and the bell of the New Year is going to ring with warmth and hope.


Education is the foundation of our country and our Party. Throughout the world, all great universities are sharing joys and sorrows with their countries, and are growing when serving their countries. The year 2018 is the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up policy as well as the 70th anniversary of the foundation of Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, which is exactly the timing for us to welcome the flourishing age and shoulder the responsibility with honor. From “being independent”, “being prosperous” to “being powerful”, the Chinese nation have been committed to the reform and made remarkable achievements with the resolve to overcome all difficulties, endowing Chinese people with the courage to build the “Chinese Dream” together. From “Project 211” and “Advantage Discipline Innovation Platform of Project 985” to the “Double First-Class Discipline Construction University”, we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the foundation of ZUEL together. The spirit and hope of “Remaining True to the Original Aspiration·Making Progress·Building First-Class” have strengthened the resolve and confidence of all ZUELers to contribute to the development of our university.

Past also means beginning. The year 2019 is full of opportunities and challenges for China; it’s also vital for ZUEL to build “Double First-Class”. “Where there is a will, there is a way.” The “Double First-Class” requires the sense of urgency and responsibility to keep forging ahead. With the guidance of the thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era and the implementation of the guiding principles of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and the National Education Conference, all ZUELers stay committed to fostering virtue and cultivating talents, seize the great politic opportunity and reform and development opportunity of patrol and rectification and promote the accelerated, featured and quality construction of “Double First-Class” by working together and keeping forging ahead in response to the proper time and condition, aiming at delivering satisfying results for ZUEL and our country!


May the chime of the New Year consolidate our confidence and re-ignite our aspiration for an even better tomorrow! I would like to extend my New Year wishes to all the teachers and staff of ZUEL, to all the schoolfellows and to all our friends. Wish ZUEL have a brighter future!
