Chen Wenjun:

Due to the time limit, this will be the last question.

People's Daily:

As we know, since the national meeting on building the role of the Party within SOEs was held, the Party's leadership in central SOEs has been continuously consolidated, and Party building has also been strengthened. What major progress has been made in this regard, and what are the main plans for the work going forward? Thank you.

Zhang Yuzhuo:

Thank you. On Oct. 10, 2016, General Secretary Xi Jinping attended the national meeting on Party building in SOEs and delivered an important speech. Over the past seven years, guided by the principles of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech, the SASAC and central SOEs have comprehensively strengthened Party building in SOEs, sincerely fulfilled their responsibilities to exercise full and rigorous governance over the Party at various levels, and fundamentally improved the political ecology of enterprises. The SASAC and central SOEs have undergone transformative changes related to function orientation, development philosophy, development mode, and work focus. Everyone has attached more importance to the Party's leadership in SOEs, as Party leadership in SOEs can be traced back to China's Constitution. Article 1 of the General Principles of the Constitution stipulates that the leadership of the Communist Party of China is the defining feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics, so it is necessary to strengthen the Party's leadership in SOEs. Specifically, achievements have been made in six respects. First, more firm and conscious efforts have been made to uphold Comrade Xi Jinping's core position on the Party Central Committee and in the Party as a whole, as well as uphold the Central Committee's authority and its centralized, unified leadership. Second, the Party's overall leadership over SOEs has been organized, institutionalized and concretized. Third, a group of politically strong and highly competent enterprise leaders has been cultivated. Fourth, the foundation for Party building at the grassroots level has been thoroughly consolidated. Fifth, the publicity and ideological work under a new situation have been strengthened. Sixth, further efforts have been made to exercise full and rigorous governance over the Party.

The practice has proved that upholding the Party's leadership and strengthening Party building is a proud tradition, the "root" and "soul," and a unique strength of SOEs. The 20th CPC National Congress made major arrangements to advance full and rigorous Party self-governance unswervingly. SOEs should highlight one theme and focus on five key points. The one theme is to let high-quality Party building lead and guarantee the high-quality development of central SOEs, and strive to establish a Party building pattern in the SASAC and central SOEs that matches the system of exercising full and rigorous Party self-governance, coordinates with the modern enterprise system with Chinese characteristics, and accords with the central reform and development tasks of enterprises, so as to provide a political guarantee for developing world-class enterprises at a faster pace. The five key points are to strengthen organization, team building, the exercise of full and rigorous Party self-governance, responsibility, and the publicity and ideological work. Thank you.

Chen Wenjun:
