Chi­nese tech gi­ants in­clud­ing Alibaba, Ten­cent, Xiaomi and Meituan-di­an­ping have all set up their own Party or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Bei­jing Lian­huo In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice Co, which is af­fil­i­ated with the cryp­tocur­rency ex­change plat­form Huobi Group, was the first firm in the cryp­tocur­rency sec­tor to es­tab­lish a Party branch last year.

“Thus far we have 21 reg­is­tered CPC mem­bers in our Bei­jing of­fice,” Chen Qian, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Party branch told the Global Times over the week­end, not­ing there were only a few CPC mem­bers when the branch was set up.

“There are some em­ploy­ees who are CPC mem­bers but don’t have their Party mem­ber­ship reg­is­tra­tion here. As the branch be­comes more ap­peal­ing, more em­ploy­ees would like to trans­fer their mem­ber­ship reg­is­tra­tion to the branch,” said Chen.

For a high-tech com­pany, join­ing the Party can en­hance in­no­va­tion in re­search and de­vel­op­ment and strengthen team sol­i­dar­ity, which is ben­e­fi­cial for the firm’s long-term sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, ac­cord­ing to Chen.

Chen noted that “more em­ploy­ees, es­pe­cially young CPC mem­bers, are in­ter­ested in Party-build­ing work. We want this group of em­ploy­ees to play a model role in lead­ing the whole team to carry on and meet chal­lenges ahead.”

Shen, who is one of the first batch of Party mem­bers in Lian­huo, told the Global Times that Party-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties have en­light­ened his ca­reer and daily life. “As a Party mem­ber, I have strong self-aware­ness that I need to be dis­ci­plined and strict with my­self and play a model role,” Shen said.

“Be­sides this, I like to com­mu­ni­cate with my col­leagues about what big events are hap­pen­ing in the coun­try,” he said, not­ing it is im­por­tant to prac­tice sol­i­dar­ity in thought.

Shen is plan­ning to or­ga­nize an outdoor ac­tiv­ity which is fo­cused on the “left-be­hind” chil­dren in the sub­urbs of Bei­jing. “Those chil­dren usu­ally lack love and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the out­side world, and we want to bring them some daily goods to ex­press our sym­pa­thy,” he noted.

The 98-year-old CPC had 90.59 mil­lion mem­bers with 4.61 mil­lion Party branches as of the end of 2018, ac­cord­ing to a re­port re­leased at the end of June by the Or­ga­ni­za­tion De­part­ment of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee.

Mem­ber­ship in­creased by 1.03 mil­lion com­pared with the num­ber in 2017, while Party or­ga­ni­za­tions in­creased by 39,000, data from the re­port showed.

Ac­cord­ing to Su, some pri­vate firms or foreign-in­vested com­pa­nies usu­ally feel sus­pi­cious or see in­ter­nal Party build­ing as un­nec­es­sary, but it has been proven that the Party plays a key role for a firm’s sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment.

“When the role is fully played, firms of­ten find them­selves de­pen­dent on such an or­ga­ni­za­tion and don’t want to be left be­hind.”
