I, Earnestly studying the important speech of General Secretary Hu Jintao, unifying thoughts and actions around the spirit of the Centre

Being good at unifying thoughts and concentrating forces at an important historical juncture, is an important experience of our Party in moving the development of its undertaking forward. In a little while, our Party will convene the 18th National Party Congress, this is a great event in the political life of the entire Party and the people of all ethnicities in the entire Country. At such a key moment, the important speech of General Secretary Hu Jintao incisively analyzed the new circumstances and new tasks our country faced at present, systematically summarized the magnificent practice of the Party since the 16th Party Congress, scientifically expounded some major issues relating to the overall picture of the Party and the country, and deeply answered a series of theoretical and practical questions on the future development of the Party and the country from the political heights and broad viewpoint of persisting in and developing Socialism with Chinese characteristics. The speech was noble in conception, assumed responsibility for the overall picture, had clear topics, rich content, and the glory of Marxism sparkled throughout the speech, which is an action plan adapted to the requirements of the times and the desires of the people, has a very strong political nature, theoretical nature and guiding nature, which has established a political, ideological and theoretical basis for the victorious convocation of the 18th Party Congress, and has an extremely important significance to uniting and mobilizing the entire Party and the people of all ethnicities in the entire country to liberate thoughts, seek truth from facts, progress with the times, explore and innovate, and struggle for the complete construction of a relatively well-off society with a heart full of expectation. We absolutely must earnestly study, deeply comprehend and realistically unify thoughts and actions around the major policymaking and deployment of the Central Committee.

1. Correctly grasping the general requirements of Party and State work in the present and future periods. General Secretary Hu Jintao stressed in his speech to hold high the magnificent banner of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, and with Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important “Three Represents” thoughts as guidance, deeply implement the scientific development view, liberate thoughts, reform and opening up, concentrate forces, storm fortifications and overcome difficulties, unwaveringly advance along the path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, and struggle for the complete construction of a relatively well-off society. This is a general requirement our Party put forward for Party and State work in the present and future periods based on new changes in the global circumstances, national circumstances and Party circumstances, new requirements for our country’s development and new expectations of the popular masses, and is the clear theme for implementing the speech. Putting forward such a general requirement, is extremely crucial for our carrying forward the cause into the future in a new historical journey, and progress with the times. In studying and implementing the spirit of this speech, the most crucial and central matter is grasping this general requirement well, and implementing this general requirement well. First, we must hold high the magnificent banner and never waver. At this time of violent change in the world, deep changes in the China of today, the complexity and variety of social thoughts, using such a banner to guide society forwards, using such a guiding ideology to concentrate social consensus, decides the rise or fall, the success or failure of the undertaking. Practice fully proves that Socialism with Chinese characteristics is the banner of development and progress in the China of today, and is also the banner of the united struggle of the entire Party and the people of all ethnicities in the entire country. Holding high the magnificent banner of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, with Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important “Three Represents” thoughts as guidance, and deeply implementing the scientific development view, we will be able to closely grasp the correct orientation for the development of the undertaking of the Party and the State, and will be able to incessantly open up a bright future for the construction of Socialist modernization and the rejuvenation of the nation. Second, we must maintain a good spiritual attitude. Comprehensively analysing the present domestic and foreign trends, we face unprecedented opportunities, and face unprecedented challenges, our country’s development is still in an important strategic opportunity period with great potential. Whether we will be able or not to grasp opportunities and calmly respond to challenges, crucially depends on our ideological understanding, depends on our work strength, and depends on our moving the pace of reform and opening up forwards, and we must especially maintain a spiritual attitude of enthusiasm and pressing on. Liberating thoughts is a strong ideological weapon for promoting the development of the undertaking of the Party and the people from beginning to end, reform and opening up is a strong driver for promoting the development of the undertaking of the Party and the people from beginning to end. We must open up new frontiers in liberating thoughts, reform and opening up, gain new breakthroughs in concentrating forces, storming fortifications and overcoming difficulties, may never fossilize, may never stagnate, and unite all forces that can be united, muster all positive factors that can be mustered, and defeat all difficulties and dangers on our path with unbounded confidence. Third, we must persist in self-confidence and initiative concerning the development path. The path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics is the correct path opened up by the Party and the people through a long time of practice. Exactly by following this path, our country’s economic and social development will obtain historical achievements, the people’s livelihoods will improve rapidly, comprehensive national strength an international influence will substantially increase, creating a miracle of development attracting the eyes of the people of the world. Regardless of how variable the trends are, or how complex the environment is, we must unwaveringly follow this magnificent path and forge valiantly ahead, not fearing any danger, and not be misled by any interference. Fourth, we must spare no effort for the goal of completely constructing a relatively well-off society. Completely constructing a relatively well-off society is a solemn promise of our Party to the people, is the pursuit of a very high objective, and is an extremely arduous process of struggle. We have marched ever closer towards this goal, but tasks remain very onerous, and even more arduous efforts are required. This requires us to grasp work closely and grasp implementation closely, and lay a decisive basis in the next five years for completing the objective of constructing a relatively well-off society by 2020, on time, and then basically realize Socialist modernization by the middle of this century.

2. Correctly grasping the major importance and practical requirements of implementing the scientific development view. On the basis of deeply summarizing the enormous achievements of the past few years, the important speech of General Secretary Hu Jintao stressed that we must implement the scientific development view with even firmer resolution, even more powerful measures and even more perfect systems, and truly transform the scientific development view into a strong force for promoting the rapid and good development of economy and society. To study and implement the spirit of the speech, we must closely link up the historical process of our Party in moving practical innovation and theoretical innovation forward, again elevating the height of ideology to the understanding of the scientific development view, and strengthen the consciousness and firmness of implementing the scientific development view. First, we must fully understand the practical value of fully understanding the scientific development view. Scientific development is the clear theme of the China of today. Over the past few years, the reason why our Party and State obtained new historical achievements and process, and Socialism with Chinese characteristics emerged thriving and full of vitality, most importantly is because of the fact that, persisting in Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important “Three Represents” thought as guidance, we dared to move theoretical innovation on a practical basis forward,  shaping and implementing the scientific development view. Substantial practical results and lively development of facts, fully manifested the strength of truth of the scientific development view, and manifested the practical value of the scientific development view. Second, we must deeply comprehend the theoretical contribution of scientific development view. The scientific development view is the newest achievement of the Socialist theoretical framework with Chinese characteristics, is the concentrated reflection of the results of theoretical innovation since the 16th Party Congress, and answered major issues of what kind of development to realize under new circumstances and how to develop them with a series of new thoughts, new viewpoints and new theses, providing powerful theoretical guidance for completely constructing a relatively well-off society, accelerating and promoting Socialist modernization. Third, we must completely grasp the practical requirements for the scientific development view. Deeply implementing the scientific development view is a long-term, arduous task. We must persist in development being the Party’s first task in governing the country throughout, persist in putting people first, persist in completely coordinated and sustainable development, persist in comprehensive planning including all factors, strive to transform ideological concepts that are not suited to the scientific development view, strive to resolve the prominent problems influencing and restricting scientific development, even more consciously march the path of scientific development, and implement the scientific development view in all areas of economic and social development.

3. Correctly grasp the deep connotation of persisting in and developing Socialism with Chinese characteristics. General Secretary Hu Jintao stressed in his speech that Socialism with Chinese characteristics is the basic achievement of the Party and the people in ninety years of struggle, production and accumulation, and must be utterly cherished, persisted in from beginning to end and incessantly developed. TO study and implement the spirit of the speech, we must fully understand the rich connotation and implicit requirements of persisting in and developing Socialism with Chinese characteristics. First, we must deeply grasp the mutual linkage of the path, theoretical structure and system of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. The path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, the theoretical structure of Socialism with Chinese characteristics and the system of Socialism with Chinese characteristics are closely related, and are organically unified into the magnificent practice of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. When we talk about “Chinese experience”, this is the most important experience; when we talk about “created in China”, this is the most magnificent creation. To open up an even broader development prospect for the undertaking of the Party and the State, we must unwaveringly persist in the path, theoretical structure and the system of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. Second, we must deeply grasp the requirement to enrich the practical characteristics, theoretical characteristics, characteristics of the times and ethnic characteristics of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. Circumstances are developing, undertakings are moved forward, understanding truth and grasping rules are an endless and incessantly deepening process. Under new historical conditions, continuing to move Socialism with Chinese characteristics forward, requires us to base ourselves on the Chinese national circumstances, grasp global trends, persist in moving with the times, untiringly innovate and create, and incessantly deepen an understanding of the rules of Communist Party governance, Socialism construction rules, and human society development rules in exploring moving theory and practice forward, and in integrating the origins with attracting the external. Third, we must deeply grasp the strong drivers of developing Socialism with Chinese characteristics. Reform and opening up is the path to strengthen the country and the key decision deciding the fate of the China of today. In the past thirty years, our country has rapidly developed by relying on reform and opening up, our country’s future must also unwaveringly rely on reform and opening up. Only by reform and opening up will it be possible to develop China, develop Socialism and develop Marxism. We absolutely must unwaveringly persist in the line, principles and policies of the Party after the 3rd Plenum of the 11th Party Congress, persist in integrate the spirit of reform and innovation in all links of governing the country, and even more consciously and firmly move reform and opening up forward, incessantly stride forward with a new pace in areas of system construction and innovation, and strive to move Socialism with Chinese characteristics forward.

4. Correctly grasping the major deployment of economic construction, political construction, cultural construction, social construction, as well as ecologic civilization construction. The important speech of General Secretary Hu Jintao fixed eyes upon the general arrangement of the undertaking of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, and made a series of new and major deployments of economic, cultural and social construction as well as ecological civilization construction. These major deployment have principle requirements, have policy arrangements, have measures and methods, and reflect the uniting of strategic design and macro-level planning with implementing steps and concrete measures, and provided important support for the economy and society to develop both well and rapidly. To study and implement the spirit of the speech, we must closely integrate work reality, deeply understand and realistically implement these major deployments. First, we must closely grasp developing this first task of the Party in governing the country, persist in giving first place to scientific development and taking the accelerated transformation of economic development methods as the main line, transform the foothold of promoting development to raising quality and efficiency, implement the innovation-driven development strategy, move the strategic adjustment of economic structuring forward, and promote the integration of urban an rural development, and completely raise the openness levels of the economy. Second, we must consider that in the area of political construction, since reform and opening up, we have put political structural reform in an important position of the overall picture of reform and development throughout, unwaveringly moved it forward and achieved great progress, and have successfully opened up and persisted in the political development path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics. To move political structural reform forward, we must persist in integrating the leadership of the Party, letting the people manage their own affairs, and governing the country according to the law, develop a people’s democracy more broadly and fully, safeguard the unity, dignity, and prestige of the national legal system, and guarantee that the people enjoy broad rights and freedoms according to the law. Third, in the area of cultural construction, we must unwaveringly march the development path of Socialism with Chinese characteristics according to the requirement of constructing a strong Socialist culture country,  persist in the orientation of the “Two fors” and the policy of the “Double Hundred”, persist in the principle of sticking close to reality, sticking close to life and sticking close to the masses, establish a high level of cultural consciousness and cultural self-confidence, promote the complete development of the Socialist spiritual civilization and material civilization. Fourth, we must seek more benefit for the people, resolve more of the people’s fears and resolve the most concerning, most direct and most real problems of interest of the people in the area of social construction, continue to gain new progress in ensuring that there are matters to learn, jobs to be gained, cures for illnesses, care for the elderly and houses to live in, ensuring that the gains from reform and development are extended to the whole body of the people more fairly. Fifth, in the area of ecological civilization construction we must merge the concepts, principles, objectives, etc. of ecological civilization construction into all areas of our country’s economic, political, cultural and social construction, persist in the basic national policies of saving energy and preserving the environment, striving to move green development, recycled development and low-carbon development forward.

5. Correctly grasping the new tasks and new requirements in comprehensively moving the new magnificent project of Party building forward. The important speech of General Secretary Hu Jintao deeply analyzed the prominent problems that Party building faces under new circumstances, by integrating the magnificent undertaking and the magnificent projects, and has clearly put forward new tasks and new requirements for Party building. To study and implement the spirit of the speech, we must get a clear understanding of changes in development, move the new magnificent project of Party building forward with a new spirit of innovation. First, we must fully understand the importance and urgency of strengthening Party building. To handle China’s matters well, the key is in the creativity, cohesion and fighting strength of the Party. We must consider that, under the circumstance that major changes have taken place in historical orientation and governance conditions, as well as Party member and team composition and structuring, unprecedented dangers have come from outside, in Party building aspects and especially among Party members, cadres and teams, many prominent problems that urgently need to be resolved have emerged. The Party faces a test of governance, a test of reform and opening up, a test of market economy, and a test of the foreign environment, which will last for a long time and are very complex, the danger of spiritual sluggishness, the danger of insufficient ability, the danger of becoming separated from the masses and the danger of passive corruption have more acutely been put in front of the Party. The task of strengthening Party building is now more onerous and more urgent than at any time in the past. Second, we must deeply grasp the work deployment on Party building, persist in the Party managing the Party, strictly managing the Party, completely strengthening the ideological building, organizational building, work-style building, anti-corruption and clean government building, and system building in the Party. By grasping these “five great buildings”, we will be able to maintain the advanced nature and purity of the Party even better, raise the Party’s governance ability even better, and guarantee that the Party becomes a strong leading core of Socialism with Chinese characteristics throughout. Third, we must deeply understand the political requirement of safeguarding Party concentration and unity. Our Party is a large Party having more than 82.600.000 Party members, the scales and quantities are large, the distribution of members vast, there is much fresh blood, but such a large Party also faces a complex environment, departs from strict discipline, and a unified determination, and is unable to talk about this. This requires us to strictly abide by Party discipline and especially political discipline, firmly safeguard the authority of the Centre, to maintain a high level of consistency with the Party Centre of General Secretary Hu Jintao in ideology, politics and action, firmly implement the Party theory, line, principles and policies, realistically achieve that there are no exceptions to the rules, and everyone is equal in front of discipline.

1.准确把握当前和今后一个时期党和国家工作的总要求。胡锦涛总书记在讲话中强调,高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,以邓小平理论、“三个代表”重要思想为指导,深入贯彻落实科学发展观,解放思想,改革开放,凝聚力量,攻坚克难,坚定不移沿着中国特色社会主义道路前进,为全面建成小康社会而奋斗。这是我们党立足世情国情党情的新变化,立足我国发展的新要求和人民群众的新期待,提出的当前和今后一个时期党和国家工作的总要求,也是贯穿讲话的鲜明主题。提出这样的总要求,对于我们在新的历史征程上继往开来、与时俱进,十分紧要。学习贯彻讲话精神,最关键、最核心的是把握好这个总要求、落实好这个总要求。一是必须高举伟大旗帜不动摇。当今世界剧烈变动,当代中国深刻变革,社会思想复杂多变,用什么样的旗帜来引领社会进步,用什么样的指导思想来凝聚社会共识,决定着事业的兴衰成败。实践充分证明,中国特色社会主义是当代中国发展进步的旗帜,也是全党全国各族人民团结奋斗的旗帜。高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,以邓小平理论、“三个代表”重要思想为指导,深入贯彻落实科学发展观,就能牢牢把握党和国家事业发展的正确方向,就能不断开辟社会主义现代化建设和民族复兴的光明前景。二是必须保持良好的精神状态。综合分析当前国内外形势,我们面临前所未有的机遇,也面对前所未有的挑战,我国发展仍处于可以大有作为的重要战略机遇期。能否牢牢把握机遇、沉着应对挑战,关键取决于我们的思想认识,取决于我们的工作力度,取决于我们推进改革发展的步伐,特别需要我们保持奋发有为的精神状态。解放思想始终是推动党和人民事业发展的强大思想武器,改革开放始终是推动党和人民事业发展的强大动力。必须在解放思想、改革开放上开辟新境界,在凝聚力量、攻坚克难上取得新突破,永不僵化、永不停滞,团结一切可以团结的力量,调动一切可以调动的积极因素,信心百倍战胜前进道路上的一切困难和风险。三是必须坚定对发展道路的自觉自信。中国特色社会主义道路,是党和人民在长期实践中开辟出来的正确道路。正是沿着这一道路,我国经济社会发展取得历史性成就,人民生活快速改善,综合国力和国际影响力大幅提升,创造了世人瞩目的发展奇迹。无论形势如何变化、环境如何复杂,我们都必须毫不动摇地沿着这一伟大道路奋勇前进,不为任何风险所惧、不为任何干扰所惑。四是必须奋力实现全面建成小康社会的目标。全面建成小康社会,是我们党对人民的庄严承诺,是一个很高的目标追求,也是一个十分艰巨的奋斗过程。我们朝着这个目标越走越近,但任务还相当繁重,需要付出更艰苦的努力。这就要求我们抓紧工作、抓紧落实,在未来5年为到2020年如期实现全面建成小康社会目标打下具有决定性意义的基础,进而到本世纪中叶基本实现社会主义现代化。

2.准确把握贯彻落实科学发展观的重大意义和实践要求。胡锦涛总书记重要讲话在深入总结过去10年巨大成就的基础上,强调必须以更加坚定的决心、更加有力的举措、更加完善的制度来贯彻落实科学发展观,真正把科学发展观转化为推动经济社会又好又快发展的强大力量。学习贯彻讲话精神,必须紧密联系我们党推进实践创新和理论创新的历史进程,从新的思想高度提升对科学发展观的认识,增强贯彻落实科学发展观的自觉性坚定性。一是充分认识科学发展观的实践价值。科学发展是当代中国的鲜明主题。这些年来,我们党和国家之所以取得新的历史性成就和进步,中国特色社会主义展现出新的勃勃生机,最重要的就是坚持以马克思列宁主义、毛泽东思想、邓小平理论、“三个代表”重要思想为指导,勇于推进实践基础上的理论创新,形成和贯彻了科学发展观。丰硕的实践成果、生动的发展事实,充分彰显了科学发展观的真理力量,彰显了科学发展观的实践价值。二是深入领会科学发展观的理论贡献。科学发展观是中国特色社会主义理论体系的最新成果,是十六大以来党的理论创新成果的集中体现,以一系列新思想、新观点、新论断,深刻回答了新形势下实现什么样的发展、怎样发展的重大问题,为全面建设小康社会、加快推进社会主义现代化提供了有力的理论指导。三是全面把握科学发展观的实践要求。深入贯彻落实科学发展观,是一项长期艰巨的任务。必须始终坚持把发展作为党执政兴国的第一要务,坚持以人为本,坚持全面协调可持续发展,坚持统筹兼顾,着力转变不适应不符合科学发展观的思想观念,着力解决影响和制约科学发展的突出问题,更加自觉地走科学发展之路,把科学发展观贯彻落实到经济社会发展各个方面。

3.准确把握坚持和发展中国特色社会主义的深刻内涵。胡锦涛总书记在讲话中强调,中国特色社会主义是党和人民90多年奋斗、创造、积累的根本成就,必须倍加珍惜、始终坚持、不断发展。学习贯彻讲话精神,要充分认识坚持和发展中国特色社会主义的丰富内涵和内在要求。一是深刻把握中国特色社会主义道路、理论体系和制度的相互联系。中国特色社会主义道路、中国特色社会主义理论体系、中国特色社会主义制度,三者紧密联系,有机统一于中国特色社会主义伟大实践。我们讲“中国经验”,这就是最重要的经验;我们讲“中国创造”,这就是最伟大的创造。开辟党和国家事业更为广阔的发展前景,必须坚持中国特色社会主义道路、理论体系和制度不动摇。二是深刻把握丰富中国特色社会主义实践特色、理论特色、民族特色、时代特色的要求。形势在发展、事业在推进,认识真理、把握规律是一个永无止境、不断深化的过程。在新的历史条件下,继续推进中国特色社会主义,要求我们立足中国国情、把握世界潮流,坚持与时俱进、不懈创新创造,在推进理论与实践的双重探索中、在不忘本来与吸收外来的紧密结合中,不断深化对共产党执政规律、社会主义建设规律、人类社会发展规律的认识。三是深刻把握发展中国特色社会主义的强大动力。改革开放是强国之路,是决定当代中国命运的关键抉择。我国过去30年快速发展靠的是改革开放,我国未来发展也必须坚定不移依靠改革开放。只有改革开放才能发展中国,发展社会主义,发展马克思主义。我们一定要毫不动摇地坚持党的十一届三中全会以来的路线方针政策,坚持把改革创新精神贯彻到治国理政各个环节,更加自觉更加坚定地推进改革开放,不断在制度建设和创新方面迈出新步伐,奋力把改革开放推向前进。

4.准确把握经济建设、政治建设、文化建设、社会建设以及生态文明建设的重大部署。胡锦涛总书记重要讲话着眼中国特色社会主义事业总体布局,对推进经济、政治、文化、社会建设以及生态文明建设作出一系列新的重大部署。这些重大部署有原则要求,有政策安排,有举措办法,体现了战略设计、宏观谋划与实施步骤、具体措施的统一,为促进经济社会又好又快发展,提供了重要遵循。学习贯彻讲话精神,必须紧密结合工作实际,深刻理解和切实贯彻好这些重大部署。一是在经济建设方面,要牢牢把握发展这个党执政兴国的第一要务,坚持以科学发展为主题、以加快转变经济发展方式为主线,把推动发展的立足点转到提高质量和效益上来,实施创新驱动发展战略,推进经济结构战略性调整,推动城乡发展一体化,全面提高开放型经济水平。二是在政治建设方面,要看到,改革开放以来,我们始终把政治体制改革摆在改革发展全局的重要位置,坚定不移加以推进,取得了重大进展,成功开辟和坚持了中国特色社会主义政治发展道路。推进政治体制改革,必须坚持党的领导、人民当家作主、依法治国有机统一,发展更加广泛、更加充分的人民民主,维护国家法治的统一、尊严、权威,保障社会公平正义,保证人民依法享有广泛权利和自由。三是在文化建设方面,要按照建设社会主义文化强国的要求,坚定不移走中国特色社会主义文化发展道路,坚持“二为”方向和“双百”方针,坚持贴近实际、贴近生活、贴近群众的原则,树立高度的文化自觉和文化自信,推动社会主义精神文明和物质文明全面发展。四是在社会建设方面,要多谋民生之利、多解民生之忧,解决好人民最关心最直接最现实的利益问题,在学有所教、劳有所得、病有所医、老有所养、住有所居上持续取得新进展,使改革发展成果更多更公平惠及全体人民。五是在生态文明建设方面,必须把生态文明建设的理念、原则、目标等深刻融入和全面贯穿到我国经济、政治、文化、社会建设的各方面和全过程,坚持节约资源和保护环境的基本国策,着力推进绿色发展、循环发展、低碳发展。

5.准确把握全面推进党的建设新的伟大工程的新任务新要求。胡锦涛总书记重要讲话从伟大事业和伟大工程的结合上,深刻分析了新形势下党的建设面临的突出问题,明确提出了加强党的建设的新任务新要求。学习贯彻讲话精神,必须认清形势的发展变化,以改革创新精神推进党的建设新的伟大工程。一是充分认识加强党的建设的重要性紧迫性。办好中国的事情,关键在党,在党的创造力、凝聚力、战斗力。必须看到,在历史方位和执政条件、党员队伍组成结构发生重大变化的情况下,来自外部的风险前所未有,党的建设方面特别是党员、干部队伍出现了许多亟待解决的突出问题。党面临的执政考验、改革开放考验、市场经济考验、外部环境考验是长期的、复杂的,精神懈怠危险、能力不足危险、脱离群众危险、消极腐败危险更加尖锐地摆在全党面前。加强党的建设的任务,比以往任何时候都更为繁重、更为紧迫。二是深入把握党的建设的工作部署,坚持党要管党、从严治党,全面加强党的思想建设、组织建设、作风建设、反腐倡廉建设、制度建设。抓好这“五大建设”,就能更好地保持党的先进性、纯洁性,更好地提高党的执政能力,确保党始终成为中国特色社会主义的坚强领导核心。三是深刻领会维护党的集中统一的政治要求。我们党是一个拥有8260多万党员的大党,规模数量大、成员分布广、新鲜血液多,这么一个大党、又面临着复杂环境,离开严格的纪律、统一的意志,一切都无从谈起。这就要求我们严格遵守党的纪律特别是政治纪律,坚决维护中央权威,在思想上政治上行动上同以胡锦涛同志为总书记的党中央保持高度一致,坚决贯彻党的理论和路线方针政策,切实做到制度面前没有例外、纪律面前人人平等。

胡锦涛总书记在讲话中明确指出,要围绕迎接党的十八大,切实加强宣传舆论工作。要按照中央部署,以讲话精神为指导,全面展开迎接党的十八大的宣传工作,举全战线之力、加大工作力度、推动形成热潮,营造解放思想、改革开放、凝聚力量、攻坚克难的浓厚氛围,着力增强人们贯彻落实科学发展观的自觉性坚定性,增强人们走中国特色社会主义道路的信念信心,为党的十八大胜利召开提供有力思想舆论支持和良好社会文化条件。

1.切实做好讲话精神的学习宣传贯彻工作,推动干部群众更好地掌握讲话的基本精神。学习贯彻胡锦涛总书记重要讲话精神,是当前的一项重要政治任务,也是宣传思想文化工作的重中之重。应当以高度的政治自觉,精心组织、迅速行动,切实把讲话精神学习宣传好、贯彻落实好。要把学习胡锦涛总书记重要讲话精神,作为当前党员干部学习的重要内容,集中一段时间认真学习、认真研读,深刻领会贯穿讲话的基本精神,准确把握各方面的重大决策部署,进一步统一思想、提高认识。要大力宣传胡锦涛总书记重要讲话的重大意义,宣传讲话的一系列重要论述,及时报道全党全社会对讲话精神的热烈反响,报道各地区各部门学习贯彻讲话精神的具体举措。要组织党报、党刊、通讯社、电台电视台和新闻网站,利用重要时段、重要版面,刊发评论、言论,进行多种形式的宣传。要在推动全党全社会学习贯彻讲话精神的同时,紧密结合宣传思想文化工作实际,大力推进社会主义核心价值体系建设,继续深化文化体制机制改革创新,推动文化事业文化产业快速发展,加快社会主义文化强国建设步伐,努力开创文化改革发展的新局面。

2.深入推进马克思主义中国化最新成果的学习教育,更好地用中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜凝聚力量。深化理论武装、发挥党的理论创新成果的指导作用,是不断凝聚思想共识、开创事业新局面的必然要求,也是做好迎接党的十八大宣传工作的核心内容。必须深入推进党的理论创新成果的学习研究宣传,切实增强理论自觉理论自信,进一步巩固全党全国人民团结奋斗的共同思想基础。要紧密结合马克思主义中国化的历史进程,深化中国特色社会主义理论体系的学习教育,切实加强各级党委中心组理论学习,加强学习型党组织建设,加强党员干部的学习培训,引导人们掌握贯穿其中的马克思主义立场观点方法,进一步坚定中国特色社会主义理想信念。要把科学发展观的学习摆在突出位置,紧密联系改革发展稳定的实际,深刻理解科学发展观的历史地位、科学内涵、实践要求,深刻理解在当代中国坚持发展是硬道理的本质要求就是坚持科学发展,更好地用科学发展观武装头脑、指导实践。要围绕改革发展中的重大问题,组织马克思主义理论研究和建设工程课题组、国家哲学社会科学基金项目、中国特色社会主义理论体系研究基地等,从理论与实践、历史与现实的结合上进行深入的研究,推出一批有深度、有说服力的重点文章,为人们深刻领会党的理论创新成果提供有力支撑。要总结近年来的经验做法,深入开展理论宣讲活动,充分发挥各级讲师团的作用,通过“理论下基层”、“百姓宣讲”等形式,进行面对面的沟通交流,回答好群众关心的问题,切实增强理论宣传普及的针对性有效性。

3.深化“科学发展 成就辉煌”主题宣传,唱响共产党好、社会主义好、改革开放好的时代主旋律。今年六月以来,我们开展了“科学发展 成就辉煌”主题宣传,推出了一批重头报道、重点文章、重要评论,组织了一系列宣传教育活动,一个展示科学发展成就、深化科学发展实践的热潮正在兴起。应当进一步唱响时代主旋律,浓墨重彩地展示伟大成就,扎实有效地深化教育活动,把“科学发展 成就辉煌”主题宣传不断引向深入。要紧密联系十六大以来党和国家办大事、克难事的成功实践,联系具有标志性意义的重大成果,从经济、政治、文化、社会建设以及生态文明建设各个领域,从加快发展、深化改革、维护稳定各个方面,从国家发展、社会进步、人民生活改善各个角度,多层次、立体化地展示10年来的历史跨越。要深入宣传党的建设的成就和经验,宣传各级党组织和广大党员推动科学发展的实际行动,宣传各行各业的优秀共产党员,展示我们党立党为公、执政为民的优秀品格。要进一步挖掘主题,增强宣传教育的思想性,深入揭示成就背后的体制制度原因,深入阐明发展成果蕴含的价值内涵,深入展示伟大实践昭示的发展方向,见事见物、见思想见精神,引导人们进一步增强坚持中国特色社会主义道路、理论体系和制度的自觉性坚定性。要积极创新主题宣传的途径方式,既要从宏观上展示成就、总结经验,又要善于以小见大、以理服人,力求生动活泼、出新出彩,增强说服力、感染力。要大力发扬“走转改”精神,深入一线挖掘鲜活素材,深入群众发现生动事例,注重用基层的实践展示社会进步,用人们的切身感受反映发展变化。要坚持面向基层、面向群众,多开辟群众便于接受的传播渠道,多搭建群众乐于参与的活动平台,充分发挥基层党组织、基层宣传文化单位和阵地的作用,把宣传教育开展到农村、社区、企业、学校、军营,真正做到热在基层、热在群众。

4.有针对性地加强社会热点难点问题的引导,进一步凝聚社会共识、壮大主流思想舆论。现在,我国经济社会发展面临不少矛盾和问题,热点难点多发频发,复杂性、敏感性更为突出。在迎接党的十八大过程中,引导好热点难点,意义尤为特殊、尤为重要。要坚持积极引导、深入引导、有效引导,把讲怎么看与讲怎么办结合起来,把认识问题与解决问题结合起来,不断巩固壮大积极健康向上的主流思想舆论。要着眼于增强发展信心加强对经济和民生问题的引导,全面科学地分析我国经济面临的形势,深入解读中央关于稳中求进的工作总基调,解读稳增长、扩内需、调结构、惠民生、抓改革、促稳定的政策措施,引导人们既看到经济运行中存在的问题、又看到经济发展的基本面是好的,既看到眼前的困难、又看到有利条件和积极因素,振奋精神、鼓舞士气,坚定克服困难、推动发展的信心。要着眼于培育良好社会心态加强对敏感问题和突发事件的引导,一方面着力反映社会发展进步的主流,让人们感受社会的温暖,激发向上的精神;另一方面针对敏感问题和突发事件,讲清楚问题的客观事实、症结所在,讲清楚党和政府的立场态度、措施办法,引导人们用平和的心态看待矛盾,用理性的方式处理问题。要着眼于增进思想共识加强对思想理论领域深层次问题的引导,以中国特色社会主义理论体系为思想武器,围绕“六个为什么”、划清“四个重大界限”等,旗帜鲜明、是非分明地阐明立场观点,有针对性有说服力地澄清模糊认识,进一步巩固发展意识形态领域的良好态势。

5.集中展示文化改革发展的丰硕成果,着力营造喜庆热烈、文明和谐的社会文化氛围。党的十八大是一大盛事、一大喜事,需要有喜庆热烈的文化氛围、有文明和谐的社会环境。要把组织好精神文化产品创作生产和群众性文化活动,作为迎接党的十八大宣传工作的一项重要任务,精心安排、深入实施,生动展示社会发展进步的时代主流,展示干部群众昂扬向上的精神风貌。要集中推出一批歌颂党和祖国、歌颂改革开放、歌颂人民美好生活的优秀舞台影视艺术作品和优秀出版物,认真做好第十二届精神文明建设“五个一工程”评选表彰,加大宣传推介力度,做好展播、展映、展演工作,扩大优秀作品在全社会的影响力。按照中央要求,完成文化体制改革的阶段性任务,这也是展示文化发展成果的重要方面,必须确保如期实现。要把城乡文化活动统筹起来,把专业文艺演出与群众文化活动结合起来,精心组织“爱国歌曲大家唱”、“唱响中国”全国巡演活动,深入开展“心连心”、“激情广场”和“三下乡”、“四进社区”、“送欢乐下基层”等公益性文化活动,努力丰富城乡群众文化生活。要广泛开展迎接党的十八大、讲文明树新风活动,坚持以建设社会主义核心价值体系为根本,深入推进文明城市、文明村镇、文明单位创建和志愿服务。要深入开展学雷锋活动和学习时代楷模宣传教育活动,推出更多体现时代精神、引领道德风尚的先进典型,宣传“最美人物”、倡导“最美精神”,着力弘扬社会正气、培育文明新风。要继续深化道德领域突出问题专项教育和治理,把加强道德教育和依法解决问题、健全制度保障结合起来,使道德领域展现新变化、新气象,进一步推动形成文明和谐的社会氛围。

6.更好地统筹对内对外宣传,努力形成于我有利的国际舆论环境。现在,境外舆论对我的关注度越来越高,涉华舆情也越来越复杂。在境内境外舆论互动增强、界限模糊的情况下,为党的十八大营造良好氛围,必须更加注重内宣、外宣的统筹。要抓住国际舆论聚焦中国共产党、聚焦中国的契机,运用各种传播渠道、交流平台、对外窗口,运用客观的事实、丰富的内容、生动的事例,大力宣传介绍我们党以人为本、执政为民的理念,宣传科学发展、和谐发展、和平发展的主张,宣传现代化建设和党的建设的巨大成就,充分展示我们党和国家的良好形象。要按照中央要求和我总体战略,区分情况、区别性质,通过官方、学界、民间多种渠道,及时准确地阐明我立场主张,有针对性有说服力地回应国际涉华舆论热点,努力抢占道义制高点、掌握国际话语权。对于那些正常的关切,要加大阐释力度、加强信息发布,增进沟通理解;对于那些属于误解误读的问题,要摆事实、讲道理,化解疑虑、增进信任;对于那些无端指责、恶意攻击特别是挑战我核心利益的问题,要有理有据地予以批驳、针锋相对地进行斗争。可以预见,十八大前后,来华采访的境外记者会大量增加,要及早准备、及早筹划,把有关工作想周到、做扎实,为境外记者采访提供热情服务。

做好迎接党的十八大宣传工作,意义重大、使命光荣。让我们紧密团结在以胡锦涛同志为总书记的党中央周围,高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,以邓小平理论、“三个代表”重要思想为指导,深入贯彻落实科学发展观,以饱满的政治热情和良好的精神状态,扎扎实实做好各项宣传工作,以优异成绩迎接党的十八大胜利召开。
