Self-confidence is the driving force behind progress. Where does China's self-confidence come from in the approach to the all-round construction of socialist modernization? It comes from China's great achievements of standing up, growing rich and getting strong, and from the path, the theory, the system, the culture and the approach of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The former makes us proud of our history, and the latter makes us look forward to the future.
