Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

The 19th Na­tional Congress of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) is ex­pected to con­vene on Oc­to­ber 18 in Beijing.

The Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee de­cided at a meet­ing on Au­gust 31 to sub­mit the pro­posal on the sched­ule to the Sev­enth Ple­nary Ses­sion of the 18th CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, which will be held on Oc­to­ber 11.

The Po­lit­i­cal Bureau meet­ing was presided over by Xi Jin­ping, Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee.

The 19th CPC Na­tional Congress will re­view the Party’s work over the past five years and sum­ma­rize pre­cious ex­pe­ri­ences that the Party has gained from the his­tor­i­cal process of unit­ing and lead­ing peo­ple of all eth­nic groups to carry on and ad­vance so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics under the lead­er­ship of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Xi at the core since the 18th CPC Na­tional Congress.

It will thor­oughly ex­am­ine the cur­rent in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic sit­u­a­tion, and take into ac­count the new re­quire­ments for the de­vel­op­ment of the Party and the coun­try as well as new ex­pec­ta­tions from the peo­ple.

The congress will draw out guide­lines and poli­cies that re­spond to the call of the times, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment af­ter the meet­ing.

The congress is a very im­por­tant meet­ing to be held when China is striv­ing for its fi­nal vic­tory for achiev­ing a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety in an all-round way, and at a crit­i­cal time for the de­vel­op­ment of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, the state­ment said.

It will hold high the ban- ner of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, be guided with Marx­ism-Lenin­ism, Mao Ze­dong Thought, Deng Xiaop­ing The­ory, the im­por­tant thought of “Three Rep­re­sents” and the Sci­en­tific Out­look on De­vel­op­ment, and thor­oughly carry out the essence of Xi’s se­ries of im­por­tant re­marks and the new gov­er­nance con­cepts, thoughts and strate­gies of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

The congress also aims to boost con­fi­dence in the path, the­ory, sys­tem and cul­ture of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, con­tinue to adopt an over­all ap­proach to pro­mote eco­nomic, po­lit­i­cal, cul­tural, so­cial and eco­log­i­cal progress, as well as to ad­vance co­or­di­nated de­vel­op­ment of the “Four Com­pre­hen­sives.”

The Four Com­pre­hen­sives refers to a four-pronged strategy that aims to com­pre­hen­sively ac­com­plish a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety, deepen re­form, ad­vance rule of law, and strengthen strict Party gov­er­nance.

Ef­forts will be made to con­tinue to build a bet­ter CPC, to achieve the fi­nal vic­tory of build­ing a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety in an all-round way and to cre­ate new prospects for so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, said the state­ment.

A new CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and a new Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion will be elected at the congress.

All prepara­tory work for the congress is go­ing smoothly at present and prepa­ra­tions should be con­tin­ued earnestly to en­sure a suc­cess­ful congress, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.
