Cai Fuchao Chairs Administration Training Class for the Party’s Mass Line Education and Practice Movement and Gives Speech
From 8 until 10 July, Administration organized the first training class on the Party mass line education and practice movement, this is an important strategic deployment made by the 18th Party Congress and a major policy decision to strengthen the Party’s self-construction by the Party Centre with Comrade Xi Jinping as General Secretary. On 4 July, Administration convened a mobilization meeting, and deployed the launch of all educational activity work according to the requirements of the Centre and the opinions of the Central Leading Group. Organizing training for departmental, bureau and higher-level leading cadres is an important component part of the “learn, educate and listen to opinions” segment of the Administration education and practice movement. It is hoped that the comrades who participated in the training fully used a number of days’ time to study earnestly, strive for new ideological harvests, and gain new heights in understanding.
Cai Fuchao put forward four concrete requirements or organizing this training class well. First, we must further clarify the main content of study and education. We must, on the basis of the requirements of the Centre, organize that Party members and cadres earnestly study the theoretical system of Socialism with Chinese characteristics, study the Party Constitution and the Report of the 18th Party Congress, study the spirit of a series of important speeches by General Secretary Xi Jinping, study the Party’s glorious history and excellent traditions, launch education on ideals and convictions, education on the Party nature, the Party style, Party discipline and moral conduct, launch propaganda and education on Socialism with Chinese characteristics, and launch topical study discussions on the Marxist viewpoint of the masses and the Party’s mass line. We must earnestly study and read the relevant content of “On the Mass Line – Extracts from Important Discussions” published by the Centre and other study materials, study the important discourses of Comrades Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao concerning the mass line, study General secretary Xi Jinping’s series of speeches after the 18th Party Congress concerning strengthening Party building and especially strengthening work style construction, as well as implementing the Party’s mass line, we must especially earnestly study the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speech at the special meeting of the Politburo, and study the important discourse of Party and State leaders concerning practicing strict economy and opposing waste during the eras of revolution, construction and reform. Through study and discussion, it will be ensured that Party members and cadres further strengthen their ideals and convictions, and raise their ideological understanding. Second, we must further clarify the objective and direction of study and education. We must, according to the requirements of General Secretary Xi Jinping, realistically strengthen education on the Marxist viewpoint of the masses and the Party’s mass line, to ensure that comrades in the entire Party firmly keep the basic purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly and with the whole mind in mind and scrupulously abide by it. All levels’ leading ranks and leading cadres at the Administration must use this training as a critical point to further broaden their thinking about study, enrich study forms, innovate study method and strengthen the effect of study. We must fully give rein to the function of models, all levels’ leading cadres at the Administration are the organizers, movers and supervisors of the movement, and even more, are participants in it, they must put themselves forward with the identity of a common Party member, strive that their understanding rises a level, their learning is a step more profound, their practice is advanced a level, and they become a notch better at analysing and resolving prominent problems. Third, we must broadly listen to opinions through deep study. We must deeply analyse all sorts of problems existing in our work through study, and analyse harmful phenomena that exist in the area of work styles. We must fully give rein to the superiority of radio, film and television in facing the masses, relying on the masses and linking up with the masses, launch study activities revolving around the questions of “for whom, relying on whom, who am I” throughout, keep firmly in mind throughout that the radio, film and television undertaking relies on the support of the people, and that when it becomes separated from the masses and separated from audiences, it will come to nothing and will accomplish nothing. We must, through study and discussion, make clear what kind of service radio, film and television should provide to the masses, what kind of service all levels’ leading cadres should provide to the people of the whole country and the workers in their work units, and what kind of service administrative press, publications, radio, film and television departments should provide towards reform and development in the entire sector. In terms of management ideas, work methods and work attitudes, further find out clearly the characteristic rules and duty requirements for radio, film and television work to serve the grass roots and serve the masses, and strengthen consciousness and determination about implementing the Party’s mass line. Fourth, we must rectify study attitudes, and abide by study rules. Leading cadres in Administration organs and all directly subordinate work units must strongly launch the education and practice movement with a fine work style, study relevant Central documents calmly and with concentration, deeply comprehend the spirit of the important speeches of General Secretary Xi Jinping and other central leaders, and, through discussion, earnestly listen to the opinions and suggestions coming from all sides, in order to provide a good basis for comparison, inspection, launching criticism and resolving problems.
At the opening ceremony for the training class, Li Qiufang further did work on “study and learn, listen to opinions” in the education and practice movement for all departments, bureaus and subordinate work units of the Administration, and stressed five points of opinion. The first was a hierarchical organization of study and education, and focusing on raising understanding; the second was adopting many kinds of methods to study, such as training classes, theoretical study centre groups, lectures, etc.; the third was sticking close to reality in organizing deep discussion; the fourth was broadly listening to opinions and suggestions; the fifth was going deeply into reality and deeply into the masses to set about resolving problems.
This training class is an important component part of the education and practice movement’s section on “studying, education and listening to opinion”. The training class is organized in three terms, 8 Administration Party organization members and 346 vice-department or bureau-level or higher cadres in total respectively participated in the three terms of the study class. The arrangement of the study class was self- study of the spirit of relevant documents of the Centre and important speeches of General Secretary Xi Jinping and other Central leaders, self-study of “On the Mass Line – Extracts from Important Discussions” issued by the Centre and other study materials, invitation of Central Party School Professor Zhang Rongchen to present a special tutorial presentation entitles “Persisting in the Party’s Mass Line, Carrying Forward the Fine Work Style of the Party”, and the organization of a large discussion on “everyone talks about the Mass Line”, and “streamlining administration, instituting decentralization, serving the people”. During the study period, a collective viewing of the domestically produced feature film “Four Days of Zhou Enlai” and of the documentary programme “Passion and Contribution – A Report of Meritorious Acts in the Radio and Television System” were organized as well.
