Xi Jinping,general secretaryof theCentral Committeeof CPC, Presidentof the People's Republic of China (PRC), and Chairman of the PRCCentral MilitaryCommission, attended the meeting and delivered an important speech. He stressed that deepening the reform of the Party and state institutions is a systematic and integral reconstruction of the Party and state organizational structure and management system. We have pushed forward the reform of all kinds of institutions at all levels at the central and local levels as a whole. We have restructured and improved the Party's leadership system, government governance system, armed forces system and mass organization work system. We have systematically enhanced the Party's leadership, government executive power, armed forces combat effectiveness and mass organization vitality. We have initially established the main framework of the functional system of the Party and state institutions to meet the requirements of the new era. This has provided a strong organizational guarantee for the improvement and development of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the modernization of the national governance system and governance capability. We should conscientiously sum up the major achievements and valuable experience in deepening the reform of the Party and state institutions, consolidate the achievements of the institutional reform, continue to improve the functional system of the Party and state institutions, and promote the modernization of the national governance system and governance capability.

 

Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Zhao Leji and Han Zheng, membersof the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, attended the meeting. Wang Huning, memberof the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, presided over the meeting.

 

In his speech, Xi Jinping stressed that deepening the reform of the Party and state institutions is an important measure to implement the Party's 19 major decisions and arrangements, a major move to deepen the reform in an all-round way, and a concentrated move to promote the modernization of the country's governance system and governance capability. After the conclusion of the Third Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, all localities and departments resolutely carried out the decision-making arrangements of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. They strengthened the system, made clear the rules of reform, did a good job in human work, and enforced strict discipline. In just over a year, the reform tasks set out at the Third Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee were completed in general, and a series of important theoretical, institutional and practical results were achieved. To strengthen the overall leadership of the Party has been effectively implemented, and to maintain the centralized and unified leadership of the Party's institutional function system is more perfect; Party and state agencies perform their duties more smoothly and efficiently, and various types of institutional arrangements and functional configurations are more suitable for the overall layout of "five in one" and the strategic layout of "four in all" in a coordinated manner. The setting up and functional allocation of major institutions in provinces, cities and counties are basically corresponding to that of the central government, and a smooth and dynamic working system from the central government to the local government has been established. Cross-military reforms have been carried out smoothly. We will simultaneously push forward the reform of various related institutions and further enhance the overall effect of the reform.

 

Xi Jinping pointed out that in deepening the institutional reform of the Party and the state, we have explored and accumulated valuable experience, that is, insisting on the Party's overall leadership of institutional reform, insisting on not breaking through the establishment but breaking after the establishment, insisting on promoting the optimization, coordination and efficiency of institutional functions, sticking to the central and local strategies, sticking to the unity and coordination of reform and the rule of law, and sticking to the ideological and political work throughout the whole process of reform. Practice has proved that the Party Central Committee's strategic decision to deepen the reform of the Party and state institutions is completely correct, and the organization and implementation of the reform are strong and powerful. It fully reflects the Party's high level of ideological, political and operational awareness, fully reflects the good political effects of the Party's overall strict administration since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, and fully demonstrates the Party's centralized and unified leadership and the political advantages of our socialist system.

 

Xi Jinping stressed that completing the reconstruction of the organizational structure and realizing the adjustment of the organization's functions only solve the "general" problems. There is still a lot of work to be done before a "chemical reaction" really takes place. We should take upholding and strengthening the Party's overall leadership as the guide and promoting the optimization, coordination and high efficiency of the functions of the Party and state institutions as the focus. We should organically integrate the adjustment and optimization of institutional responsibilities with the improvement and perfection of institutional mechanisms, organically integrate the strengthening of the Party's long-term governing capacity with the improvement of the state's governance level, and continue to consolidate the achievements of institutional reform. To improve the Party's leadership system for major work, the focal point of the decision-making and deliberation coordination bodies is to seek, discuss and grasp major issues. The Party's working organs should take the lead in upholding and strengthening the Party's overall leadership, better play their functional roles, and strictly enforce political discipline and rules. We should strengthen the coordination of the functions of Party and government organizations, give full play to the unified, centralized and coordinated management functions of the Party's functional departments, and coordinate major work in this field. In order to improve the ability and level of institutions to perform their duties and fulfill their responsibilities, departments should strictly follow the "Three Sets" regulations, focus on their main responsibilities, highlight key issues, consciously think and act under the overall situation, and closely focus on the need to perform their duties and fulfill their responsibilities for the growing good life of the people. We should give full play to the initiative of the central and local authorities to ensure the central Party Committee's centralized and unified leadership, the unity of the state system and the unity of government decrees. the central and state organs should do a good job in guiding and supervising the industry's own system. while resolutely implementing the central Party Committee's decision-making and deployment, the local authorities should give full play to their subjective initiative and creatively carry out their work in combination with the local reality. To push forward the relevant supporting reforms, in accordance with the principle of accelerating the separation of government and business, the separation of management and office, deepen the reform of public institutions, focus on strengthening the construction of comprehensive administrative law enforcement team, strengthen the basic social management and public service functions, and improve the supporting policies for institutional reform. We should promote the legalization of the organization establishment, manage all kinds of organizations according to law, and continue to strictly control the organization establishment. It is necessary to strengthen the ability of the officials to start their own businesses and take on new responsibilities, accurately grasp the new requirements of the new organization's new functions, combine with the ongoing education on the theme of "Do not forget your initiative mind, keep in mind the mission", educate and guide the majority of Party members and cadres to consciously maintain a high degree of consistency with the Party Central Committee in ideology, politics and action, stick to the people's stand, temper their political character of loyalty, cleanness and responsibility, maintain their fighting posture of seizing the day and the minute, striving for success, and the fighting spirit of the more difficult and the more forward, so as to implement the work with "nails"spirit".

Xi Jinping pointed out that deepening the reform of the Party and state institutions was planned and promoted in the overall reform deepening plan. It was a strategic battle we fought to deepen the reform in an all-round way. We should make good use of the favorable conditions created by the institutional reform to push the overall deepening of the reform to a deeper level so as to deepen the new achievements of the institutional reform of the Party and the state and create a new situation for the overall deepening of the reform. It is a hard task before us to fully complete the reform measures deployed at the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee. It is only over a year before 2020, when decisive results will be achieved in important areas and key links. We should take advantage of the situation and go to war with all our strength. We should continue to fight hard and chew hard bones and concentrate our efforts on breaking through reforms in important fields and key links.

 

Xi Jinping stressed that the combination of reform should be strengthened by deepening the reform of the Party and state institutions, improving the system and mechanism of the Party's leadership reform, improving the decision-making of reform leaders, promoting the implementation mechanism, strengthening the central and local authorities, leading departments and participating departments, the main reform and supporting programs, reform measures and the guarantee of the rule of law, pilot exploration and summary and promotion, promotion of reform tasks and supporting linkage of institutional function adjustment. We should maintain the strategic focus of reform, promote reform and better serve the overall situation of economic and social development. Efforts should be made to plan reform and development ideas, solve outstanding contradictions, prevent risks and challenges, and stimulate innovation vitality. The stable relationship between reform and development should be correctly handled. The Party's leadership should be combined with respect for the people's initiative spirit. The system, integrity and coordination of reform should be emphasized. The progress of reform in various fields should be coordinated to form an overall effect. We should push forward the reform and ensure the quality and effectiveness of the reform plan. The situation is changing, the tasks are changing, and the work requirements are also changing. We must accurately identify changes, scientifically adapt to changes, and actively seek changes. We must take solving practical problems as the starting point for formulating reform plans. We must give prominence to reforms that are related to the overall economic and social development, involve major system innovations, and help the masses to gain a sense of belonging. We must give priority to implementation. We should push forward the systematic integration of reform results, sort out and link up the results, and promote the systems to be more mature and fixed on the whole.
