Namibian President Hage Geingob said under Xi's leadership, China has achieved rapid economic and social development and has made remarkable achievements in the country's buildup, and China is on its way to building a prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful socialist modernized major country.
Over a history of thousands of years, Chinese people have always held fast to their dreams and made endless efforts, he said, citing ancient Chinese mythology, such as Pangu creating the world, Nyuwa patching up the sky, Fuxi drawing eight diagrams, Shennong tasting herbs, Kuafu chasing the sun, Jingwei filling up the sea and Yugong removing mountains.
Putin said in a message that the choice made by the NPC once again proves Xi's high prestige, and represents a recognition of Xi's contribution to promoting China's rapid economic and social development and safeguarding China's national interests on the global stage.
Xi also called for more energy and more concrete measures to advance the building of an ecological civilization, accelerate efforts to develop green production and ways of life and work harder to tackle prominent environmental problems.
To this end, the CPC must have the courage to reform itself and adhere to the commitment to serve the public good and exercise power in the interest of the people, step up strict governance over the Party and resolutely clear out all types of inaction and corruption, he said.
"I am so lucky to be part of such a great age led by a great man," said Yu Zhigang, a National People's Congress deputy. "The unanimous vote showed that as our leader, Xi has our full support and trust and bears our high expectation."
