远见卓识 | yuǎn jiàn zhuó shí

It has been a quiet week for Xi’s speeches, so we had to dig into the archives for this one. On September 29, 2016 Xi gave a speech at a meeting discussing the “Selected Works of Hu Jintao.” Xi used this 成语 to praise Hu’s expertise as a Marxist political thinker. There are a few other good 成语 in the original (below): 审时度势 (shěnshíduóshì), 呕心沥血 (ǒuxīnlìxuè), and 殚精竭虑 (dān jīng jié lǜ).

MEANING

Foresight and sagacity

ORIGINAL

胡锦涛同志以马克思主义政治家的远见卓识,紧紧依靠中央领导集体和全党同志,把握大局,审时度势,呕心沥血,殚精竭虑,为坚持和发展中国特色社会主义作出了杰出贡献。
