Guangming Daily:

The fourth plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee that concluded not long ago gave special emphasis to the rule of law. What new requirements has the fourth plenary session put forward for the nationwide popularization of the laws, and how will they be implemented? Thank you.

Fu Zhenghua:

Thanks for your question. We have been earnestly studying and fully implementing the spirit of the fourth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC). It's a very important meeting as China is at a crucial moment in realizing the two centenary goals. The session reviewed and adopted the CPC Central Committee's decision on some major issues concerning how to uphold and improve the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and advance the modernization of China's system and capacity for governance. It also clearly pointed out the need to strengthen public legal education, increase awareness of the rule of law, improve the public legal service system, and further strengthen the public foundations of law-based governance. I think the session has put forward new requirements for law popularization in the following four aspects:

First, we should take the advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics in spreading knowledge of the law, especially upholding the centralized and unified leadership of the CPC in our work. We should give full play to the CPC's role in exercising overall leadership and coordinating the efforts of all involved to enhance legal publicity and education.

Second, we should pay more attention to the people's needs. The law popularization work should focus on meeting public demands and deliver targeted legal education programs. We will ensure the people are placed at the center, protect their legitimate rights and interests, and meet their needs. This will be taken as the starting point and ultimate goal of our work. We should ensure we popularize areas of the law that people need to know and care about, in order to solve their problems. By explaining the law in relation to hot and difficult issues of public concern, we can enhance the effect of public education on the law . We will take the ways that people are delighted to see and hear about, in a bid to make the system of laws fully accepted and understood by them.

Third, we should focus on developing a socialist culture of rule of law. We should strengthen the guiding role of Marxism in the ideological field, take it as the primary task to study and publicize General Secretary Xi Jinping's new ideas, thoughts and strategy of comprehensively promoting law-based governance of China, and use them to guide our work in promoting rule of law and raising public awareness of the law.

Fourth, we should focus on law-based governance at grassroots level. We should combine this with systematic, comprehensive and at-source governance, so as to set up a grassroots-level social governance system integrating self-governance mechanisms, rule of law and rule of virtue. At the same time, governance at the grassroots level should be based on rural areas, and we should give full play to the role of the law in leading, regulating and ensuring the construction of governance there.

In addition, we should strengthen international publicity of China's law-based governance. We should clearly explain the advantages of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and tell stories on China's national system and governance system to the world, in a bid to further expound the connotations of the system of socialist rule of law with Chinese characteristics for building a community with a shared future for humanity and support the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative and the "going global" of Chinese culture. We will strengthen international communication capacity building on publicizing China's national system and governance system by fostering relevant cultural products which feature the system of socialist rule of law with Chinese characteristics and can be well received in the international community.

To sum up, in accordance with the spirit of the fourth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee of the CPC, we still have a long way to go in our work of law popularization. I hope that our media friends will actively participate in the work and make due contributions to it. Thank you.

Hu Kaihong:

Because the time is limited, we will only be able to take two more questions.
