On behalf of the CPC Central Committee, the National People's Congress, the State Council, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the Central Military Commission, I hereby pay tribute to all the revolutionary pioneers of older generations and martyrs who made great contributions to realizing national independence and liberation of the people, the country's prosperity and strength and happy life of the people. I send warm congratulations to people from all ethnic groups in the country and patriotic compatriots from home and abroad, and express heartfelt thanks to the friends from other countries who care about and support China's development.


60年前的今天,中国人民经过近代以来100多年的浴血奋战终于夺取了中国革命的伟大胜利,毛泽东主席在这里向世界庄严宣告了中华人民共和国的成立。中国人民从此站起来了,具有5000多年文明历史的中华民族从此进入了发展进步的历史新纪元。


Sixty years ago on this day, the Chinese people achieved great victory of the Chinese revolution after more than one hundred years of blooded struggle. It was here that Chairman Mao Zedong solemnly declared to the world the founding of the People's Republic of China. At that moment, the Chinese people stood up and the Chinese nation with over 5,000 years of civilization began a new page of development and progress in history.


60年来,在以毛泽东同志、邓小平同志、江泽民同志为核心的党的三代中央领导集体和党的十六大以来的党中央领导下,勤劳智慧的我国各族人民同心同德、艰苦奋斗,战胜各种艰难曲折和风险考验,取得了举世瞩目的伟大成就,谱写了自强不息的壮丽凯歌。今天,一个面向现代化、面向世界、面向未来的社会主义中国巍然屹立在世界东方。


In the past sixty years, with the three generations of Party leadership with Comrade Mao Zedong, Comrade Deng Xiaoping and Comrade Jiang Zemin as a core, and with the leadership of the Central Committee formed after the 16th National Congress of the CPC, with hard work and wisdom of all ethnic groups of the country, the Chinese people have joined hands to overcome the great hardship and made great contributions that have been recognized by the world, and proved our perseverance and endurance. Today, a socialist China is standing firm in the east as marching towards modernization, embracing the world and future.


新中国60年的发展进步充分证明,只有社会主义才能救中国,只有改革开放才能发展中国、发展社会主义、发展马克思主义。中国人民有信心、有能力建设好自己的国家,也有信心、有能力为世界作出自己应有的贡献。


The sixty year's of development of New China has proved that only socialism can save China, only reform and opening up can develop China, develop socialism and develop Marxism. The Chinese people are confident and are capable of building our own country and make due contributions to the world.


我们将坚定不移坚持中国特色社会主义道路,全面贯彻执行党的基本理论、基本路线、基本纲领、基本经验,继续解放思想,坚持改革开放,推动科学发展,促进社会和谐,推进全面建设小康社会进程,不断开创中国特色社会主义事业新局面、谱写人民美好生活新篇章。


We will unswervingly follow our path on socialism with Chinese characteristics and comprehensively implement the ruling party's basic theory, basic line, basic program and basic experience. We will maintain our policies of emancipating our thoughts, of reform and opening-up, pushing forward scientific development and promote social harmony. We will push forward the process of comprehensively building a moderately well-off society, turning new pages in the endeavor of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and opening new chapters in making the people's life better.


我们将坚定不移坚持“和平统一、一国两制”的方针,保持香港、澳门长期繁荣稳定,推动海峡两岸关系和平发展,继续为实现祖国完全统一这一中华民族的共同心愿而奋斗。


We will stick to the policy of “peaceful reunification” and “one country, two systems” to help Hong Kong and Macao remain prosperous and stable, to seek peaceful development of cross-strait relations, and to work for the complete reunification of the motherland, which is the common aspiration of the Chinese nation.


我们将坚定不移坚持独立自主的和平外交政策,坚持和平发展道路,奉行互利共赢的开放战略,在和平共处五项原则基础上同所有国家发展友好合作,继续同世界各国人民一道推进人类和平与发展的崇高事业,推动建设持久和平、共同繁荣的和谐世界。


We will unswervingly maintain an independent foreign policy of peace. We will follow a path of peaceful development. We will seek a strategy of win-win cooperation based on the five cardinal Principles of Peaceful Co-existence. We will develop friendly relations and cooperation with all nations. We join hands with the people from all over the world in pushing forward the lofty cause of making the world more peaceful and progressive and building a harmonious world of long-lasting peace and prosperity.


中国人民解放军和人民武装警察部队要发扬光荣传统,加强自身建设,切实履行使命,为维护国家主权、安全、领土完整,为维护世界和平再立新功。


The Chinese People's Liberation Army and People's Armed Police Force should uphold their glorious traditions, build up their own strength and fulfill their missions practically so as to make new contributions to safeguarding national sovereignty, security and territorial integrity, as well as world peace.


历史启示我们,前进道路从来不是一帆风顺的,但掌握了自己命运、团结起来的人民必将战胜一切艰难险阻,不断创造历史伟业。


History has shown us that the road ahead may not always be as smooth as what we expect. But the Chinese people who are united and are masters of the destiny will overcome all difficulties and obstacles and will continue to create great historic undertakings.


展望未来,中国的发展前景无限美好。全党全军全国各族人民要更加紧密地团结起来,高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,与时俱进,锐意进取,继续朝着建设富强民主文明和谐的社会主义现代化国家、实现中华民族伟大复兴的宏伟目标奋勇前进,继续以自己的辛勤劳动和不懈奋斗为人类作出新的更大的贡献!


Look forward to the future, we envision bright prospect for China's development. The whole Party, the army and people of all ethnic groups will unite more closely, holding up the great banner of building a socialism with Chinese characteristics, and advance with the times and with enterprising spirit.
