President Xi Jinping has been redefining China´s dream. While personal achievement is important, what China achieves as a nation, appeals to its citizens too, explains business analyst Ben Cavender in CNN Money.
The emphasis on national glory — rather than purely personal achievement — is key, according to Ben Cavender, an analyst at China Market Research Group.
Chinese are “not just proud of their personal achievements, they’re also proud of national achievements,” he said. “The idea of China becoming more global, more recognizable, being involved in more discussions internationally, is important.”
But Chinese also recognize that national success will help them reach personal goals.
“People pay a lot of attention to the overall rise of the country, the growth of the economy, what the government is doing, because as the nation goes, they go,” Cavender said.
