Chinese President Xi Jinping said Friday he believes that the Chinese people, including compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao, have the wisdom and capability to better practice "one country, two systems."
The "one country, two systems" principle, proposed in the 1980s, is feasible, workable and popular with the people, Xi said at a gathering in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Macao's return to the motherland.
"Of course, the principle needs consistent perfection through practice," he said.
The undertaking of "one country, two systems" will be perfected and the special administrative regions will be governed in an even better fashion, Xi said.
The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will not be stopped. The path of common development and prosperity of Hong Kong, Macao and the mainland will be even wider, he said.
