The first issue of this year's Qiushi Journal, published on January 1, 2020, published an important article by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, President of the State and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, "Adhering to and Improving the Socialist System with Chinese Characteristics and Promoting the Modernization of the National Governance System and Governance Capability".
The article emphasizes that adhering to and improving the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and promoting the modernization of the national governance system and governance capability are major issues related to the prosperity and development of the Party and the national cause, the long-term stability of the country and the happiness and well-being of the people. The decision passed by the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee comprehensively answered the important political question of what should be adhered to and consolidated and what should be improved and developed in China's national system and national governance system. It is a programmatic document of Marxism and a political manifesto of Marxism. The whole Party should unify its thoughts and actions into the spirit of the plenary session and take studying and implementing the spirit of the plenary session as an important political task.
The article points out that we should strengthen the confidence of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. Institutional advantage is the greatest advantage of a country, and institutional competition is the most fundamental competition among countries. A stable system will stabilize the country. The socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the national governance system have profound historical details, remarkable advantages in many aspects and rich practical results. All Party members, especially leading cadres at all levels, must be firm in their confidence in the socialist road with Chinese characteristics, their theoretical confidence, their institutional confidence and their cultural confidence at all times and under all circumstances, so as to truly achieve the goal of "making every effort to fight hard and no matter wind from the east, west, north and south ".
The article emphasizes that three things should be done to implement the spirit of the plenary session. First, unswervingly adhere to and consolidate the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. The socialist system with Chinese characteristics is a strict and complete scientific system. It is the fundamental system, the basic system and the important system that play the role of "four beams and eight pillars". Among them, the leading system is the Party's leadership system. The Party's leadership system is the fundamental leadership system in our country. We must adhere to the leadership of the Party and conscientiously implement the Party's fundamental requirements of taking over the overall situation and coordinating all parties in order to promote the construction of various systems, promote the development of various undertakings and strengthen and improve all aspects of work. Second, keep pace with the times and improve and develop the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the national governance system. It is a dynamic process for the system to become more mature and stereotyped, and the modernization of governance capability is also a dynamic process. It cannot be achieved overnight or once and for all. We must give prominence to adhering to and improving the fundamental system, basic system and important system that support the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. We must focus on consolidating the foundation, promoting the advantages, supplementing the short board and the strong and weak items, and build a systematic, scientific, standardized and effective system. Third, strictly abide by and implement the system. The vitality of the system lies in its implementation. We must strengthen the execution of the system, strengthen the supervision of the implementation of the system, and ensure that the system is always powerful and effective everywhere.
