"Self development" sustains CPC's rule (2)


08:15, November 02, 2012


A group study is only part of out-of-hours training programs Wang will have as a medium-level local official and CPC member. From January 2011 to this June, he attended 14 lectures on various topics from social management to Internet communication.

He also has to attend full-time programs in local Party schools.

"Training programs, lectures and study meetings help me keep in touch with the times, the world outside my everyday work. It is like recharging my batteries that in return benefits my work," Wang said.

Self development is a requirement the CPC imposes on its members, especially those holding important positions.

Since 2002, the 20-member-odd CPC Central Committee Political Bureau have had 77 group studies on major issues in the country's political, economic and social sectors, including grass-roots democracy, medical reform and global economy.

The Party School of the CPC Central Committee, which trains high-level officials, holds 45 programs and enrolls more than 3,000 people annually. Those giving lectures in the school include foreign state leaders, leading scholars and executives of multinationals.

The quality of the Party's governance is rooted in every official. The CPC has placed great importance on education and training of its members and asked chief officials to spend more time on learning, said Li Junru, former vice president of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee.

"This can also be considered as an effort to encourage morality and curb malpractice and corruption, which now is a life-or-death issue for the CPC's rule," Li said.

The CPC also highlights "self development" of the Party.

Xi Jinping, Vice President and president of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, said in a speech at the school that borrowing good ideas and learning from others is one of the reasons why the CPC has maintained vitality and kept making progress in its 91-year history.

"If the CPC had not developed and adjusted itself to the changing reality, there would not have been the People's Republic of China, the reform and opening-up, the socialism with Chinese characteristics and all achievements China has today," said Jia Jianfang, a professor with the Party School of the CPC Central Committee.

The CPC will hold its 18th national congress next week. People are expecting the Party and its new leadership to adjust to complicated situations and tough challenges in today's China.
