Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Monday makes a speech to officials attending a training session on exchanges of cadres between the central and local levels in Beijing.

Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Monday encouraged younger officials to work at the grass-roots level so they might "learn from the public masses" and "shape character."

Xi, also a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, told officials attending a training session on exchanges of cadres between the central and local levels, that working at the grass-roots level was "key to enhancing capabilities, accumulating experience and becoming politically mature."

Sixty-six officials from 54 central departments, aged between 41 to 46 years old, attended the training. In return, the same number of local officials is going to soon be assigned to work in central government departments.

Xi said training and selecting younger officials were key to the future of the Party and the country's cause, and such exchanges between the central and local levels were an exploration to improve the cadre group's structure and help them enrich experiences.
