The People's Daily, flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China (CPC), stressed the CPC's efforts in Party building to cope with the new challenges for China and the Party.

The situation is that the world, the country and the CPC are all experiencing profound changes, and that has posed some new problems and challenges for the work of the CPC's party building, the newspaper said in a commentary published Wednesday.

The commentary provides an overview of the keynote speech made by President Hu Jintao, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, on July 1 at a meeting commemorating the CPC's 90th founding anniversary.

"The tests for the CPC's Party building efforts in governing the country, in implementing reform and opening up, in developing the market economy, as well as the tests in the external environment are long-term, complicated and severe," it says.

Moreover, the commentary says that the Party is confronted with growing threats of lacking in drive, incompetence, divorce from the people and corruption.

"To advance the Party building work, we should continue to free up our minds, seek truth from facts, advance with the times," it says, adding that efforts should also be intensified in selecting honest and competent officials, taking a people-oriented approach in governing, deepening the anti-corruption work and using more institutional measures to regulate the power of officials.

An important indicator of the vitality of a political party is its ability to adapt and reform itself according to change, and sober minds and concrete efforts will help the Party to successfully steer the situation and lead the society's development, the commentary says.
