History will tell the world how important the Third Plenum of the Communist Party of China's 18th Central Committee, said an article of the People's Daily (excerpts below).
China must deepen its reform and opening-up to march forward with greater courage and wisdom. The world's attention indicates the significance of the meeting and the world's expectations for China's further reform.
More and more foreign observers think that reform and opening-up is increasingly a model for China to face up to the future challenges and opportunities in its way to development.
China's reform has global significance.
It is a remarkable achievement for the Chinese people to become the world's second-largest economy after winning their national independence in the late 1940s and making sure it could feed its large population in the late 1970s.
It is an even more arduous mission for Chinese people to "decolonize" their minds, consolidate national confidence in the country's culture, development path and system.
