Xi Jinping's New Year speech as it reflects national confidence
Chinese President Xi Jinping's New Year speech has been warmly received by overseas media, which have praised China's remarkable achievements and lauded the speech for reflecting national confidence.
The speech was broadly confident, said Bloomberg, as China's economy shows signs of stabilization and China nears completing a "phase one" deal with the U.S. side.
Noting Xi's resolve to eradicate extreme poverty in China, Bloomberg added it is part of a bid to improve growth.
Similarly, The Times of India said Xi gave an upbeat picture of the Chinese economy in his address.
The Star, an English-language newspaper in Malaysia, said Xi hailed China's achievements in his speech and hoped the best for Hong Kong people.
On the Hong Kong issue, South China Morning Post reported Xi's sincere hope that the city could strive for stability.
