Senior CPC Official Meets New Zealand PMWei Jianxing, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, met Friday with New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark at the headquarters of the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU).
Wei, who is also a member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee and ACFTU President, briefed the prime minister on the ACFTU's work.
Wei said to adapt to the development of the socialist market economy, China maintains the basic guide line of relying on the working class wholeheartedly and emphasizes the functions of trade unions.
Trade unions, while safeguarding the overall interests of the entire Chinese people, should better represent the specific interests of the workers and staff members, Wei said.
While protecting the economic interests of workers and staff members, trade unions should also protect their political rights and meet their cultural needs, he said.
While satisfying the legitimate rights and interests of the workers and staff members, trade unions should also educate workers and staff members and help them to improve their quality, he added.
The enthusiasm and creativity of the workers and staff members should be protected and mobilized and directed to the cause of safeguarding reform, development and stability of the country, Wei said.
He also expressed hope that friendship between trade unions of China and New Zealand would be enhanced.
