Opening Remarks

[Linkfanfare playing in the background, Secretary-General escorted by Party Security gendarme until he reaches the podium]

Greetings of peace, Citizens of the People's Federation! Kindly sit down. How are all of you?

[loud continuous applause]

The Honorable Representatives of the Federal Congress; State-Presidents of the Executive Council; Supreme Commissary Ren Cao, a good afternoon—to you, sir, [applause]. Wherever the following are; foreign dignitaries with us today, and [applause] my good friend Hồ Ngọc Quang [applause]; His Excellency, Undersecretary Zhan Yahui Sr. and the esteemed members of the Asian Diplomat's Cadre; Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Kim Han-Sol and the other members of the Cabinet; President of the Supreme People's Court Miss Chen Zexian and the Supreme Court body; my fellow workers in government; my most beloved countrymen. Thank you all, [applause] thank you all.

[fanfare tones-down gradually and finally comes to a stop]

Let me begin by extending my hand in gratitude to all who kept faith with me in our most trying times. Numbers speak a thousand words and tell a hundred tales. But the landslide victory of the Administration as well as the latest survey results shows that my disapproval rating is 10.91%. [applause] I hope that the Soviets of Congress—I hope none of you are included in that 10.91% [laughter] — No, wait let me rephrase that, I am almost certain you are part of that 10.91%! [laughter followed by applause]

I kid, ladies and gentlemen, but really it inspires me with determination to pursue relentlessly what we have started at the start of my administration: safeguard our democracy, our people, our heritage, our way of life.

I told you many months ago, that our New Long March had to begin with a single step. Since July 2018, we have taken more than a few steps towards the expansion of our economic capabilities, the foundation of cordiality between our allies, the furtherance of both national and international peace, and of course, the progression of Socialism in our country.

On Trade Expansion

Mere months ago we bore witness to the response of the world to our rise to global prominence. We endured through the dark ages of the 20th Century, and built for ourselves the paradise of independence which we have always deserved. With the advice of the State Development and Planning Commission, we embarked on a Federal campaign to build-up our industries by securing greater trade deals with our allies and friends across the world; while our rivals in the West began making plans to build walls we built bridges and for that we prospered. Through the direction of my administration and the cooperation of the Trade and Industry Commission, our latest findings report that the nation's nominal GDP has risen from $26.88 trillion to $28.23 trillion between 2017 and 2019 thanks to additional trade surplus and debt payback alone.

But what was the response of the international community, particularly those [nations] in what economists consider to be the "developed" parts of the world?

Sanctions, embargoes targeted at crippling the People's Federation on the basis of bogus accusations such as "violations of human rights" and "creeping majoritarianism", to which I have responded before and will respond again: if it is the human rights of corrupt politicians and the freedoms of criminals which we are speaking of, then I have not a single care for them! I have urged them time and time again to respect our Socialism, our tradition of workers' democracy and Orientalism.

I cannot help but echo the late Comrade Stalin, as I have many times before: “It is difficult for me to imagine what “personal liberty” is enjoyed by an unemployed hungry person. True freedom can only be where there is no exploitation and oppression of one person by another; where there is not unemployment, and where a person is not living in fear of losing his job, his home and his bread. Only in such a society personal and any other freedom can exist for real and not on paper.”

Even the World Assembly recognizes this. Can the Occidental states boast the same 96.88 score on the worldwide Human Development Index as we are boasting today, as of 2019? This is why I urge the Executive Council, as well as my own countrymen, to disregard the lies being spread by the gangster-like media attitude of the West. I urge the Pan-Asiatic Ministry of Foreign Affairs to never-mind any political fallout that may result in our aggressive trade expansion, and to instead help me safeguard our forward-march instead. [...]

On Terrorism

[...] I extend my sympathies to the late Cui Milihi, who was, earlier in this administration's term, assassinated by counterrevolutionary dogmatists. Truly, the success of our Federation is tainted and trailed by the scent of death. This is why I urge the Supreme Commissary to continue his anti-crime initiative in Northern China. It is also imperative that we increase the operating capabilities of the Special Police Force, and the Ministry of State and Public Security; we have been lenient with surveillance and peacekeeping within our own borders for far too long. [...]

On Trickle-Down Diplomacy

Aside from sustaining what we already have earned, we must also ensure that our federation's economy has room to grow. This is why, after much thought, I have conceded to much of the State Soviet's stance on international aid. We have seen the devastating effects of the sanctions on our national budget. I believe that, in order for us to plant the seeds of a brighter and more prosperous Asia, not only for the duration of my term, but for many years to come, we must begin to become more vocal of the [political] situation of the countries around us. [...] Peace trickles down.

This is where the Sixth Administration's focal foreign agenda comes into the fold: trickle-down diplomacy. The world is far too gripped in civil strife and ideological conflict, that it leaves little time for its people to govern and make for themselves their own destinies.

Just a few nights ago, I was woken in the middle of my slumber by the call of Undersecretary Zhan, informing me that a Civil War had broken-out in the Kingdom of Dmaguea; then again a few nights after, this time by a rebellion in Khataiy. Naturally I had to do my duty to reach-out to the appropriate ministries and ensure the protection of Asian life above all costs but it simply alarms me that war is once again becoming commonplace in this century.

Now, many of you, especially the young ones, will rub it in my face that our great Federation is partly at fault for that. Yet I beg to differ. I believe that it is in our People's War in Skyhooked, that is quickly making it known to our rival states that they should not even dare challenge our benevolent and sovereign authority in trade and that nor should they be allowed to bully those who have done us kindness. [...]

The single greatest thing about the Pan-Asiatic States' foreign policy is that we never aim to force our ideology on any one country; we strive to liberate all countries from those who would.

On Protectionism

Now more than ever it is clear that we have broken free from the great isolationist policies our forefathers cast upon us in the 20th Century [...] We march forward to embrace globalism, but we must also ensure our own national aspirations by protecting our trade and our like-minded alliances. Proposals have already been made by several Congresspeople regarding the expansion of our international aid budget, and I highly encourage everyone to support them with open minds and open hearts, [so that] we may freely and unerringly create a world in the shape of peace through Orientalism and solidarity. [...]

It is my fervent hope that the prestige of our Armed Forces will establish footholds through permanent military bases across the world [...] Generally, it is my aim that our current wars of defense for other worldly socialist states represent the prestige of the People's Federation, our commitment to our allies, and our unending interests to smash foreign aggression. The Pan-Asiatic States is, after all, the world's most advanced model of democratic cooperation in the 21st Century, only by right of protecting its people. [...]

We do not want war, but sometimes it is necessary to take up the gun in order to abolish the gun.

On Military Expansion

I urge everyone to follow the example of Comrade State-President Kazuo Shii and his "Strengthen Our Seas" Initiative in order to protect our trade convoys—this I beg most especially of the Executive Council and the Federal Congress [of Soviets]. Not only will further increasing our military spending ensure the safety of our trade with the Soviet Union and Latin America, but it will provide long-term, meritocratic jobs to the thousands of citizens affected by the large-scale automation efforts being felt in population-centers like Neo-Manila and Beijing. To serve one's country is the most dignified role to play in the whole of the Federation.

On Burma Clean Water Initiative

Burmese State-President Cho Nandar and the Burmese District Assembly have been fighting for the implementation of the BCW [Burma Clean Water] Law since 2016, but concerns logistics and funding have continuously burdened them. [...] The BCW seeks to provide clean water through public taps all across Burma through rerouting many of the wartime-constructed utility systems lurking below their cities. [...] Now that our coffers are filling-up, much of their District Assembly is now ready to concede to its terms. The State-President has also approached me regarding a possibility that his model be implemented in the states of Nusantara, Indochina, and the Chinese region of Tibet. The Sixth Administration is in close coordination with both the Federal Congress of Soviets and the various District Assemblies of the states aforementioned in order to fully-achieve this goal.

On New Rail Transportation

Rail transportation is the lifeblood of the country. It connects not only the economic goods of the federation but our peoples, cultures, and traditions as well. [...] Local District Assemblies must work in close cooperation with the Federal Congress [of Soviets] to ensure that funds are being allocated to the correct projects. They must also seek as well as follow the advice of the State Development and Planning Commission to a much more diligent degree. [...] If implemented, more than just the economic benefits, the current infrastructure projects in our country will have long-lasting effects on the unity of the Asian peoples as a whole.

On Anti-Red Tape Initiative

I command that welfare, healthcare, and housing agencies under the authority of the Supreme Commissary improve their services as data from the complaint center under my office show that most of you were the subject of many complaints. [...] I want the processing of permits to last only 3 days. I have consulted my administration about this matter, and we wholeheartedly agree that it is possible with necessary policing from the executive department. [...] Expect the Supreme Commissary and I to loom over all of you with great expectations from here on out until this goal is accomplished.

On Salary Increase For Government Workers

[...] The State Soviet has been in close coordination with me and the Federal Congress in order to complete and pass the Salary Standardization Law which will raise salaries for all federal government workers, including teachers and nurses. [...]

On the Welfare of Rice and Coconut Farmers

I vow that my administration will, sooner or later, in coordination with the Federal Congress and the Ministry of Agriculture, implement the Rice Tariffication Law. [...] I call for the careful utilization of the [federal] coconut levy fund. [...]
