Gov­er­nance of CPC fu­els pur­suit of the Chi­nese Dream

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - By XIN­HUA

The Sixth Ple­nary Ses­sion of the 18th Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the Com­mu­nist Party of China, which was held last month, high­lighted the Party’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to carry out com­pre­hen­sive and strict in­tra-Party gov­er­nance.

Schol­ars at home and abroad have said that the all­round gov­er­nance of theCPCis ex­pected to in­ject fresh im­pe­tus into the coun­try’s ef­forts to pur­sue the Chi­nese Dream of na­tional re­ju­ve­na­tion.

Xi Jin­ping, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, stressed at the meet­ing the need to reg­u­late in­tra-Party po­lit­i­cal life and increase su­per­vi­sion, call­ing the move “an im­por­tant ap­proach to pro­mote com­pre­hen­sive and strict Party gov­er­nance.”

The CPC pub­lished up­dated norms on Party po­lit­i­cal life on Nov 2, which were in­tro­duced to pro­mote strict gov­er­nance of the Party.

Some for­eign ob­servers and schol­ars have said that at a crit­i­cal time in China’s de­vel­op­ment, the CPC’s call for strict gov­er­nance within the Party in­di­cates the far­sighted strate­gic vi­sion and wise gov­er­nance of Chi­nese lead­ers.

The new plan has been de­scribed not only asan­im­por­tant in­no­va­tive step by the CPC it­self, but also an ex­am­ple of man­age­ment and gov­er­nance for other po­lit­i­cal par­ties around the world to fol­low.

Gu Xuewu, di­rec­tor of the Cen­ter for Global stud­ies at Bonn Uni­ver­sity, said that “by hold­ing the plenum, the CPC led by Xi is show­ing Chi­nese and the world a rul­ing Party de­voted to self-re­newal, self­growth and self-im­prove­ment”.

Gu said the new guide­lines on in­tra-Party life were mainly de­signed to pre­vent Party mem­bers from be­com­ing cor­rupt, es­pe­cially those hold­ing high-rank­ing po­si­tions.

“In­sistin­gonthe pu­ri­tyof the Party has be­come a key fac­tor in defin­ing the path for China in the con­text of the global eco­nomic cri­sis,” said Xulio Rios, di­rec­tor of Spain’s Ob­ser­va­tory of Chi­nese Pol­i­tics in­Madrid.

“New rules and pro­ce­dures should be con­sol­i­dated to raise the moral stan­dard of the CPC and its mem­bers and en­sure pub­lic recog­ni­tion of their abil­ity to re­al­ize the ‘two­cen­te­nary goals’ of build­ing an all-round mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety and be­com­ing a mod­ern so­cial­ist coun­try.”

“China’s anti-cor­rup­tion drive looks set to yield promis­ing re­sults for the world’s sec­ond-largest econ­omy,” said Mun­shi Faiz Ah­mad, chair­man of the Bangladesh In­sti­tute of In­ter­na­tional Stud­ies.
