Beijing: Reforms in China have entered a "crucial period" and the words and deeds of the new leadership reflect their determination to carry on with reforms, said a state-run Chinese daily Tuesday.
"No stop in reform, and no stop in opening up" is the message from China's new leader Xi Jinping during his visit to Shenzhen, "showing the new central collective leadership's determination and confidence in promoting the reform and opening up", said an article in the People's Daily.
It said that currently, the country's reform and opening up has entered a "crucial period".
"Some problems are difficult to be solved because they are either the old institutional issues caused by old ideas or new ones caused by changes of pattern of interests in the development process," it added.
The article said that only by adhering to the "spiritual pursuit and responsibilities of communists, gathering the positive energy in coordination and promotion of reform and unswervingly pushing forward the reform and opening up can the undertakings of the party and the people continue to display new vitality and win new victories".
It added: "The words and deeds of the new central collective leadership in the past month showed their unremitting efforts in insisting in the reform and opening up. China will further deepen the reform and opening up and unite all the positive energy under the leadership of Xi."
