The Party adopted the land rent reduction policy within various anti-Japanese base areas during the Anti-Japanese War. The Party implemented the "land to the tiller" system during the War for Liberation and put forward the guideline for the land reform advocating that the system of feudal exploitation should be destroyed so as to fundamentally solve the land issue for farmers.

The Party’s emphasis and effective efforts on the land issue enabled it to secure sufficient labors and materials to ensure its success in the War for Liberation. Why did the people support the Party and the People's Liberation Army? The answer is that the Party allocated the land to the people and the PLA defended the land of the people.

China encountered economic difficulties in the early 1960s. Although the Party made some mistakes in resolving the difficulties and damaged the interests of the people to a certain extent, they still made concerted efforts to carry out every order from the Party as they had done before.

Deng Xiaoping said in 1981, "The Party was then close in feeling to the masses and enjoyed high prestige among the public. The social climate was harmonious, and the cadres and the people were both in high spirits. Therefore, China was able to overcome the difficulties quite smoothly." When the national economy suffered difficulties, Mao Zedong and other top leaders set a good example of hard work and plain living to tide over the difficult times. The Party was able to withstand the severe test in the early 1960s primarily because its leading cadres were willing to share weal and woe with the masses.

With great trust in the people and deep respect for their pioneering spirit, the Party has led the Chinese people to actively promote the socialist modernization drive for a better life since the introduction of the reform and opening-up policy over 30 years ago. The Party has made unremitting efforts to achieve its fundamental goal of developing the productive forces, increasing the country's comprehensive national strength, and improving the people's living standards.
