Thank you, Mr. Wang Xiaohui. Now, Mr. Jiang Jinquan will make an introduction to issues related to upholding and improving the Party's leadership. 

Jiang Jinquan:

Ladies and gentlemen, good morning. The leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is the defining feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and the greatest strength of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics. Both history and present circumstances attest that in a big country like China, without CPC's leadership, the country would fall apart, and accomplish nothing. For the first time, the fourth plenary session has defined the elements of the socialism with Chinese characteristics, and broken it down into 13 aspects. Among them, the CPC's leadership is the fundamental leadership system for the country, which governs and runs through the other 12 aspects. The plenary session looked to improve the leadership system to ensure the CPC always provides overall leadership and coordinates the efforts of all involved. It put forth six requirements.

First, establish a system featuring sticking to the original aspiration and the mission. Sticking to the Party's original aspiration and mission comprises the foundation and the precondition for cementing the leadership of the CPC. To establish the system in this regard, we should push all the CPC members to adhere to the CPC's nature and fundamental purpose, its ideal and belief, and its ultimate goals, thus maintaining its advanced nature and purity, and gaining the wholehearted support of the people.

Second, improve various systems that uphold the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership. Upholding the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership is the highest principle of the CPC's governance. To improve these systems, we need to urge the entire Party to strengthen our consciousness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, follow the leadership core, and keep in alignment; increase our confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics; and uphold General Secretary Xi Jinping's core position on the CPC Central Committee and in the CPC as a whole, and the CPC Central Committee's authority and its centralized, unified leadership. We should also maintain a high degree of unity in thought, stance, and action with the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, and ensure unity and solidarity and concerted action of the whole Party. 

Third, improve the system that ensures the CPC's leadership over all work. The CPC's leadership over all work accurately defines the CPC's role in "exercising overall leadership and coordinating the efforts of all involved." Improving this system means coordinating all forces, mobilizing all positive factors and increasing synergies, in order to efficiently advance the causes of the CPC and the country. 

Fourth, improve various systems of governance for the people and by the people. Governance for and by the people is the ultimate objective and means of the CPC leadership. Improving these systems means putting people first, closely relying on the people to govern the country, and cementing the class foundation and mass base of the CPC's governance.

Fifth, improve the system of strengthening the CPC's governance capacity and its art of leadership. The CPC's governance capacity and art of leadership determine the effectiveness of the governance of the country. Improving this system means improving the CPC's ways of leadership and governance, fully enhancing the CPC's governing skills, and continuously strengthening its capacity to govern in a scientific and democratic way and in accordance with the law.

Sixth, improve the system of enforcing full and strict self-discipline in the CPC. It takes a good blacksmith to make good steel. Enforcing full and strict self-discipline in the CPC is the fundamental guarantee of preserving the purity and advanced nature of the CPC and consolidating the CPC's leadership role. Improving this system means continuously advancing the CPC's internal reform, increasing the CPC's ability to solve its own problems, and let our Party remain the firm leadership core of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

The six aspects are the basic components of the CPC's leadership system, which we must fully build, always uphold, and continuously improve and develop. Thank you.
