CPC to launch Party-wide education campaign on Xi Jinping thought
BEIJING -- The Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee has decided to launch a Party-wide thematic education campaign starting from April to study and implement Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
The decision was made at a meeting held by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on Thursday, which also deliberated the regulations on the reporting of personal information by officials.
Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, presided over the meeting.
It was pointed out at the meeting that the campaign, with a focus on leading officials at and above the county and director level, is to use the Party's new theories to achieve unity in thought, will and action, carry forward the great founding spirit of the Party, and see that the whole Party strives in unity to build a modern socialist country in all respects and advance the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation on all fronts.
During the meeting, participants stressed that the whole Party needs to develop a deep understanding of the decisive significance of establishing Comrade Xi Jinping's core position on the Party Central Committee and in the Party as a whole and establishing the guiding role of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.
They called on all Party members to comprehensively study, understand and implement the guiding principles from the Party's 20th National Congress, apply the new development philosophy, foster a new pattern of development, promote high-quality development, and advance Chinese modernization through the campaign.
It was also emphasized at the meeting that efforts should be made to advance the Party's self-reform and always stay alert and determined in order to tackle the unique challenges that a large party like the CPC may face.
The meeting noted that with the education campaign, the whole Party should rally more closely around the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core.
It asked Party committees and leading Party members groups at all levels to address the pressing concerns of the people, make special efforts in tackling prominent problems, and ensure that the campaign is carried out in an effective and sustainable manner.
The system for officials to report their personal information has served as an important measure for strictly managing and supervising officials since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, said the meeting, adding that the revision of the regulations is of great significance.
Reporting personal information to authorities truthfully is a political and organizational discipline that officials must abide by, said the meeting, calling on officials to willingly submit to organizational oversight.
It also asked those in senior positions to take the lead in implementation by reporting their personal information, thereby setting a good example.
The meeting asked Party committees and leading Party members groups at all levels to ensure sound implementation of the reporting system so that it can play a bigger role in exercising full and rigorous self-governance of the Party.
