Doc­u­men­tary wins peo­ple’s hearts

Seven-episode CCTV spe­cial fo­cused on gov­er­nance

China Daily (USA) - - TOP NEWS - By AN BAIJIE an­bai­jie@chi­nadaily.com.cn

A po­lit­i­cal doc­u­men­tary fo­cus­ing on the Com­mu­nist Party of China’s peo­ple-cen­tered gov­er­nance re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back from the pub­lic soon af­ter it aired na­tion­wide.

One episode a day was re­leased of the seven-episode doc­u­men­tary Stay True to the Mis­sion and Keep Mov­ing For­ward on China Cen­tral Tele­vi­sion and the se­ries fin­ished on Wed­nes­day.

The ti­tle came from early July, when Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Xi Jin­ping called on the Party’s mem­ber­ship of more than 89 mil­lion to “stay true to the mis­sion and keep mov­ing for­ward”.

The doc­u­men­tary fo­cuses on the progress made by the CPC in the past five years to build so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, serve the peo­ple, boost re­form, build a strong mil­i­tary, fight cor­rup­tion and en­hance in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion.

The doc­u­men­tary said that it was the choice of his­tory and the peo­ple in Oc­to­ber last year to “iden­tify Xi Jin­ping as the core of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and the whole Party”.

It said that un­der the firm lead­er­ship of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Xi as the core, China will def­i­nitely have great suc­cess in the process of ful­fill­ing the dream of the great re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Chi­nese na­tion.

The doc­u­men­tary was among a num­ber of po­lit­i­cal pro­duc­tions broad­cast by CCTV in the past two months fea­tur­ing the Party’s achieve­ments over five years in such ar­eas as deep­en­ing re­form, boost­ing clean gov­er­nance and prac­tic­ing ma­jor-coun­try diplo­macy.

The pub­lic pro­vided pos­i­tive feed­back on the doc­u­men­tary, and many peo­ple ex­pressed con­fi­dence and op­ti­mism in the fu­ture of the coun­try with the ap­proach of the Party’s 19th Na­tional Con­gress, which be­gins on Wed­nes­day.

Gao Chao, a civil ser­vant in Ji­nan, Shan­dong prov­ince, said that the clean-gov­er­nance mea­sures of the past five years have ben­e­fited the peo­ple and won their trust in the Party and govern­ment.

“We have deep feel­ings about the Party’s strong mea­sures in cut­ting bu­reau­cratic red tape,” he said, adding that the anti-cor­rup­tion cam­paign is not a “mo­men­tary breeze” but a case of long-term per­se­ver­ance.

Fan Bo, a busi­ness­man in Yuncheng, Shanxi prov­ince, said that the govern­ment’s re­forms in stream­lin­ing ad­min­is­tra­tive pro­ce­dures have made it eas­ier for busi­ness­peo­ple like him to work.

“I no longer have to travel for miles to visit dif­fer­ent govern­ment de­part­ments for regis­tra­tion, tax­a­tion and pen­sion is­sues be­cause all of the de­part­ments have set their ser­vice out­lets at the city’s pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion cen­ter,” he said.

Xiao Yon­gle, a writer, said on his Sina Weibo so­cial me­dia ac­count that the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive, put for­ward by Xi in 2013, has of­fered China’s so­lu­tions to the world.

“We need to en­large open­ing-up and boost in­ter­na­tional win-win co­op­er­a­tion to re­al­ize the great re­ju­ve­na­tion of the Chi­nese na­tion,” he said.
