BEIJING, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- The following is the full text of Xi Jinping's congratulatory letter to the Association of National History of the People's Republic of China (ANHPRC) on the 30th anniversary of its founding.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the founding of the ANHPRC, I would like to extend warm congratulations and sincere greetings to all the comrades of the ANHPRC and the vast number of Chinese history researchers throughout the country.
The ANHPRC has made contributions to the research on and publicity of the history of New China, and to the education on it as well since its founding 30 years ago.
