What important spiritual power lies behind China's national rejuvenation?

Updated 14:50, 03-Mar-2024

"The heaven is in constant motion. Likewise, true gentlemen should tirelessly strive to achieve their better selves" – this proverb has been deeply rooted in Chinese culture since ancient times. A belief in the pursuit of self-improvement, akin to the relentless movement of the heavens, is fundamental to the Chinese ethos. After more than 40 years of reform and opening-up policies in China, Shenzhen is home to numerous stories embodying the spirit of the approach. The journey of entrepreneur Yang Zhihua, who arrived in Shenzhen with a determination to pursue and fulfill his dreams, is one such example.

In the tenth episode of "Classic Quotes by Xi Jinping," join CGTN host Zhao Xin and Professor Alexander Ledenev on a captivating journey to Shenzhen, where China's reform and opening-up policies blend with inspiring personal stories to explain the old Chinese proverb.
