While working in Zhejiang Province on the eastern coast of China, he developed farsighted ideas on subjects such as general reform, innovative,coordinated, green, open and inclusive development, the rule of law, Chinese culture, social stability, and Party building, and put many of these ideas to the test. He also formulated some major policies like the "Eight Strengths and Eight Measures Strategy."All these proved to be effective theoretical and practical innovations in socialism with Chinese characteristics at the provincial level.

This book is a collection of the 232 essays written by Xi Jinping for ZHEjiang Daily's column "Zhejiang, China:A New Vision for Development" between February 2003 and March 2007.
