The eight-point frugality code, which was introduced in 2012 by the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has improved the work style of the Party and changed the country.

Over the past five years, the regulation has united thinking, changed work styles, cleaned up lingering problems, and purified the political environment of the Party.

A survey has indicated that 94.8 percent of Chinese think the eight-point rule is effective and 91.8 percent are confident in the long-term implementation of it.

Xi Jinping, who took office as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in 2012, has led the efforts to improve work style and strengthen discipline, solving a slew of issues that were once considered irresolvable.

The eight-point rule has become a symbol of work style construction, a brilliant program for comprehensively strengthening Party discipline, a landmark in changing the political environment and social outlook, as well as a strong engine for achieving rejuvenation of the nation.

The past five years’ experience has indicated that the style in which one works is no small matter and in tackling difficult problems it is necessary to start with the easier ones.

Over the past five years, the Political Bureau has regarded the eight-point rule as a decisive regulation to discipline the Party, as well as a key practice to help the Political Bureau win the people’s trust.

The Party, with President Xi Jinping at the core, has figured out what the key issues were and how to tackle them over the past five years, setting a good example of promoting big changes by starting with small issues.

The changes brought by the eight-point rule are well received by the people, who say the Party’s work style has changed step by step in the five years to a greatly-improved one.

Work style construction is a tough and longstanding battle that will never end. This good momentum should be maintained and deepened until it is deeply rooted in the Party’s culture.
