Hard work pays off and the world progresses with each passing day. In the past year, the Party and the State raise even greater expectation on higher education. Guided by Thought on Socialist Economy with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the spirit of the 19th National Congress of CPC, we firmly uphold leadership of the Party, focus on morality in education, keep a beginner’s mind, work closely, bravely together, comprehensively enhance “construction of five environments”, and has made remarkable progress in all aspects: construction of the New Campus has been officially, comprehensively conducted; disciplinary inspection has been conducted on-campus and an all-out effort to enforce strict Party discipline has been invested; adjustment of university sectors and divisions goes smoothly and governance system of the University has been further perfected; the University is successfully appointed as a candidate institution for doctoral degree programs, indicating that general guidelines of the University has been widely, highly accepted; the University has passed undergraduate teaching appraisal with outstanding performance, hosted state-level key research projects, been approved for establishing post-doctoral work-station--- salience of our educational feature in talent cultivation and research and service competence are enhanced and faculty structure is optimized; and the meetings on faculty representatives and members of Labor Union have been successfully held--- solid foundation and actual, effective progress has been realized in respect of democratic management and supervision and safeguarding lawful rights and interests of faculties and staff. It is evident that in the past year the University has done a lot and is steadily moving forward on the pathway of super normal, big-stride development. We have accumulated positive energy via pushing forward “construction of five environments” and make due contribution to the great cause of offering satisfactory education to our people,  

The beginning of the year symbolizes smooth progress of everything. At this moment, you may have arrived at home and enjoy this happy festival with families. The family reunion refreshes ourselves and offers us new strengths. Spring Festival is not only a traditional festival but also our emotional sustenance. Natural laws are based on our deep love with nature and with each other. In the past year, CPC BISTU Committee has attached great importance to construction of sentiment environment to build a cultural environment of “enjoying our own achievements, sharing with others, being happy for achievements of others and helping each other”. We have organized a series of activities to celebrate retirement, visited faculties and staff, and cared and helped those in need. In the future we will focus on solving problems which our faculties and staff care most. We will try best to make achievements of the University benefit all faculties and staff so as to contribute to welfare of the whole University.  

Of course at this moment, there are still a number of faculties and staff who are working on their posts. There are still a lot of students who are working hard for realization of their dreams. Echo of footsteps in subway, walking silhouette on streets, and warm lights shining at night may make you feel lonely. But time goes on and our travel never ends. Success is more sweet when we work hard on it.  

The past always symbolizes beginning of new future. Spring festival is the day when we farewell to the past and greet the new beginning. It carries our expectations of a better, brighter tomorrow. The year 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of foundation of People’s Republic of China. It is also a key year for BISTU to achieve the goal of 2020. Now we new missions to accomplish and new height to mount. On the new journey to the future, we still need to work hard on our cause. It is necessary for us to be aware of the big picture, constantly enhance “four awarenesses”,  and firmly uphold “four confidences”. We shall be very much determined, persistent, and indomitable in building our future, turning the blueprint into reality, and constructing a better, greater BISTU!
