Speech of General Secretary of the CPC and President of the PRC Xi Jinping on the Centenary of the Communist Party of China

Xi Jinping making the speech at Tiananmen Square, 01st of July 2021

This is a rough transcription based on the live interpretation on CGTN. There are several phrases repeated, mainly for emphasis (I think). There were a few unclear words, marked with [?]. These should not affect the meaning significantly. Some relevant links are included.

Comrades and Friends, today, the 1st of July, is a great and solemn day in the history of both the Communist Party of China and the Chinese Nation. We gather here today to join all Party members and Chinese people of all ethnic groups around the country in celebrating the Centenary of the Party, looking back at the glorious journey the Party has undertaken over 100 years of struggle, and looking ahead to the bright prospects for the rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation. Let me extend warm congratulations on behalf of all members of the CPC Central Committee.
