The objective of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is to help people realize their dream of a better life, said Chinese President Xi Jinping at a grand gathering to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Shenzhen SEZ in south China's Guangdong Province on Wednesday.

Xi said local government should introduce more innovative measures to not only solve social issues and improve people's lives but also to capitalize on people's talents to boost the SEZ's development and success.

It's important to improve the balance of development through mobilizing public resources to benefit people at the grassroots level and build a comprehensive and sustainable social security system, said Xi.

In the time of global pandemic, Xi emphasized the need to remain resolute and vigilant in adhering to regular epidemic prevention and control in the Shenzhen SEZ.
