SHANGHAI, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- The realization of the Chinese Dream for the country's population of 1.3 billion will be a great event in human history, said a senior official at a dialogue Saturday in Shanghai.
It will put a new face on China and make a fresh and greater contribution to mankind, said Cai Mingzhao, director of China's State Council Information Office while delivering a keynote speech at the International Dialogue on the Chinese Dream.
Cai said that the Chinese Dream has strong appeal because it reflects the wishes of of all Chinese for a beautiful future.
The Chinese Dream concept was put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinping when he attended an exhibition themed "road towards renewal" at the end of 2012.
Achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream for the nation in modern times, Xi said.
The Chinese Dream has a strong appeal because our people are confident that it can come true, and the people support and trust the new central collective leadership, Cai said.
Cai said the idea of the Chinese Dream has become a driving force behind the comprehensively deepening of reforms.
Details of the reforms were outlined in a recent key meeting of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Experts from over twenty countries are attending the two-day dialogue, hosted by China's State Council Information Office and jointly organized by China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration and Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.
