Yang Jie, vice-chairman of the CPPCC Changji Hui autonomous prefecture committee in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region
The sense of community for the Chinese nation is deeply rooted in the hearts of all ethnic groups. I was born, raised and now work in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, and I am a participant, witness and beneficiary of the stable development of society there. Nowadays in Xinjiang, all ethnic groups stick together tightly, like pomegranate seeds. We hold each others' hands, help each other and live in unity and harmony. I believe Xinjiang not only has a prosperous and stable present, but will be sure to have a better future as well.
Ou Yanling, deputy head of the Luocheng Mulam autonomous county, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region
Underdeveloped areas like ours that want to catch up and achieve industrial revitalization must fully capitalize on our advantages and make every effort to explore a green development path that makes industries stronger, the people richer and the environment better. Only in this way can we contribute to the realization of rural vitalization.
Zhan Chunxin, chairman of Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology
The Belt and Road Initiative provides a new path for the prosperity and development of the world, and also builds a new platform for companies to realize win-win cooperation. China's equipment manufacturing enterprises should give full play to their advantages, work together with the countries and regions involved in the initiative and speed up localization in a bid to build a "community with a shared future for humankind".
Yang Zhongqi, chief expert at Chinese Academy of Forestry
Over the past few years, China has made great efforts to protect forests and has significantly improved the habitats of the Siberian Tiger and other wildlife. China has established many natural reserves that now cover 18 percent of its land area, and large-scale greening projects have helped expand forest coverage to 23 percent. Furthermore, forest city construction projects have begun in nearly 200 cities nationwide. All these efforts are aimed at turning China into a more beautiful country with "lucid waters and lush mountains".
Ma Xiaolin, curator of Henan Museum
Through our joint efforts, cultural relics will no longer remain as history, but instead will enter daily life in various forms. Innovative ideas and new technology are coming together to enable immersive ways of telling stories of the past, and social media is helping spread new cultural creations. As a matter of fact, it is not just the traditional culture that has become popular, but our confidence in our history and culture has been enhanced, too.
