Before the start of the race, facing the League banner, all the participants reviewed the oath once again following the host, recalling the original aspiration, with their spirits burnished and their thoughts improved at this moment. Secretary Yuan held the torch high and led all members of the Party Committee of the Group and representatives of the leading group of the subsidiaries. He took firm and persistent steps, starting from the first relay station "135", and went through winding paths to the next hopeful stage of youth. When the youth delegates took over the torch relayed by Secretary Yuan, the event reached a climax, which marked that the League members who were successors of the Party would not forget their original aspiration and would take the May 4th Spirit of "Patriotism, Progress, Democracy and Science" as an incentive to carry forward the important task of reform and development, firmly adhere to the correct political direction and continue to move forward. With the passing of the torch, both the senior Party members and the young people could not help cheering and shouting for it. The "torch" of fighting passed down from generation to generation ignited everyone's passion and strengthened the sense of historical responsibility and mission of young people in the new era of the Group.
Young employees expressed one after another that General Secretary Xi's four requirements for young students, namely "patriotism, inspiration, truth-seeking and implementation", have greatly inspired the young and middle-aged generation of the Group. Young people should have vigor and vitality, dare to try, dare to innovate, constantly develop, improve and surpass themselves. The torch relay handed down the fireworks and brought together the hearts of the young and the hearts of the predecessors. At that moment, all of us were one, and all of us were members of China Re. Under the leadership of the Party Committee of the Group, the youth of the China Re Group would closely unite around the Party Central Committee with General Secretary Xi Jinping as its core, keep up with the pace of the era and strive to take the road of high-quality development in order to present a youth gift to the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China with more remakable achievements.
