The Eight Rules

ChinAfrica - - KEYWORDS -

these Eight Rules for im­prov­ing work prac­tices and build­ing closer ties with the peo­ple were is­sued at a meet­ing of the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) on De­cem­ber 4, 2012. They cover the fol­low­ing main ar­eas:

Do­ing bet­ter re­search and anal­y­sis and truly un­der­stand­ing ac­tual con­di­tions when do­ing grass­roots-level stud­ies;

Stream­lin­ing meet­ings and im­prov­ing the way meet­ings are con­ducted; Mak­ing doc­u­ments and brief­ing pa­pers more con­cise and im­prov­ing writ­ing styles;

Stan­dard­iz­ing pro­ce­dures for work­ing vis­its abroad;

Im­prov­ing se­cu­rity guard work and con­tin­u­ing to ob­serve the prin­ci­ple of do­ing what im­proves re­la­tions with the peo­ple;

Im­prov­ing news re­port;

Hav­ing strict rules on the pub­li­ca­tion of ar­ti­cles; and

Pro­mot­ing fru­gal­ity and the strict ob­ser­vance of rules on in­cor­rupt­ibil­ity in govern­ment.

These Eight Rules are nei­ther the high­est stan­dards, nor the ul­ti­mate ones.

They are only the first step in the CPC’S ef­forts to im­prove its prac­tices - the min­i­mum ex­pected of Party mem­bers. Xi Jin­ping, Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, stated that, “Lead­ing of­fi­cials at all lev­els must lead by ex­am­ple and serve as role mod­els; they must do as they say and live up to their prom­ises. Within the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau, I will start with my­self.” Fol­low­ing the re­lease of the Eight Rules, a se­ries of mea­sures on work prac­tices have been is­sued.
