Peo­ple-ori­ented de­vel­op­ment

China Daily (Canada) - - LIFE -

To lead the Chi­nese peo­ple in their pur­suit of a bet­ter life is an unswerv­ing goal of the Com­mu­nist Party of China, Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping re­it­er­ated in a speech at a re­cent meet­ing of pro­vin­cial and min­is­te­rial-level of­fi­cials. Since the 18th Na­tional Congress of the CPC in 2012, Xi has re­peat­edly stressed a peo­ple-ori­ented de­vel­op­ment phi­los­o­phy and made a se­ries of im­por­tant re­marks on how to im­prove peo­ple’s liveli­hoods, while vow­ing not to let any per­son be left be­hind in the ef­forts to build a well-off so­ci­ety in an all-around way.

Xi insists that the coun­try’s re­form pro­grams should make peo­ple feel a sense of gain and ef­forts to pro­mote the rule of law should make peo­ple feel the jus­tice in ev­ery ju­di­cial de­ci­sion. Talk­ing of the Party’s cam­paign to pro­mote stricter self-gov­er­nance, he says the key aim is to strengthen the Party’s bond with the peo­ple.

Un­der the guid­ance of Xi’s re­marks and thoughts, China has taken a se­ries of mea­sures to ex­tend the coun­try’s de­vel­op­ment fruits to more peo­ple over the past five years, which has greatly boosted peo­ple’s sense of gain and hap­pi­ness. This at­tests to the Party’s gov­er­nance phi­los­o­phy that its ef­forts to im­prove peo­ple’s liveli­hoods will never come to an end, and the Party’s ide­o­log­i­cal pur­suit to en­sure or­di­nary peo­ple can live ful­fill­ing lives is the start­ing point and also the ob­jec­tive of its work.

Af­ter about four decades of re­form and open­ing-up, Chi­nese peo­ple have stronger de­sires to live more en­rich­ing lives mak­ing it nec­es­sary for de­ci­sion-mak­ers to map out de­vel­op­ment strate­gies and poli­cies for the causes of the Party and the na­tion based on the coun­try’s changed cir­cum­stances.

China’s de­vel­op­ment is now at a crit­i­cal point and it should seize the emerg­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment and not leave iden­ti­fied prob­lems un­ad­dressed. Fol­low­ing the guid­ance of the de­vel­op­ment con­cepts em­bod­ied in Xi’s re­marks will en­able China to con­tinue to progress.
