On October 15th, Chinese Ambassador to Sudan Ma Xinmin publishes an signature article titled How Could CPC Accomplish Feats? for the China Focus Column on Sudan Vision. The full text is as follows:
Since the Communist Party of China (CPC) took power 70 years ago, it has led hundreds of millions of Chinese people to create the “Chinese miracles” that the world has marveled at. The CPC itself has also grown into a much larger ruling party with over 90 million party members, compared with mere 50 members in the early days after its founding. What has made it possible for the CPC to make such tremendous achievements?
Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, once pointed out, “the entire efforts of the CPC are aimed at pursuing happiness for the Chinese people, realizing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and promoting peace and development for humanity”, which is exactly the key to the CPC’s accomplishments.
The fundamental reason for the CPC’s accomplishments lies in the commitment to its original aspiration and mission of pursuing happiness for the Chinese people and realizing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The future of a political party and of a state power tends to rely on the support of the public. With the focus on supremacy of the people, the CPC operates for the people and relies on the people, representing the fundamental interests of all people.
For the good of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, the CPC has put forward effective theories that conform to the interests and needs of the people. The CPC has been upholding Marxism as its guiding ideology since the day it was founded. By combining Marxism with China’s actual practice, it has developed Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Theory of Three Represents, the Scientific Outlook on Development, and Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era that are all adapted to changing times and underpinned by the core idea of serving the people. These advanced theories are the powerful guidelines to gather together the support, wisdom and force of the Chinese people.
For the good of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, the CPC has opted for the CPC-led multi-party cooperation and political consultation system, the basic political party system in China that represents and pursues the interests of the people. Under this system, the CPC is the ruling party, while all other democratic parties participate in the administration of state affairs, and the CPC consults with democratic parties on policies towards the objective of building a stronger country and realizing the prosperity of the people. Different from the two-party or multi-party system practiced in western countries and also distinct from the one-party system implemented in some countries, China’s political party system is capable of extensively and in the long term representing and pursuing the fundamental interests of all people, and uniting various political parties and groups toward the common goal.
For the good of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, the CPC has accomplished the goal of sharing both material and cultural wealth with all Chinese people. Under the CPC’s leadership, the Chinese people have made great endeavors of building socialism with Chinese characteristics. Over the past 70 years after its founding, China has witnessed profound changes and become the second largest economy in the world, succeeding in lifting 740 million Chinese people out of poverty and increasing the middle-class population to 400 million. The CPC has led Chinese people to shake off poverty and gain wealth and enabled the Chinese nation to pride itself on its growing strength and the Chinese people to feel much more happy, satisfied and secure.
For the good of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation, the CPC has established a package of internal discipline and rules that are intended to restrain and reform itself and maintain the CPC’s foundations. Through the cadre appointment mechanism of selecting upright and competent officials, the CPC has pooled all kinds of talent and put them to the best use; through internal party discipline and regulations and other self-restraint measures, the CPC has tightened the institutional cage; and through full and strict discipline over the party, political and theoretical buildup and other self-reform measures, the CPC has constantly improved itself. Adhering to law-based governance and operation within the Constitution and relevant laws, the CPC never hesitates to eliminate any corrupt officials that put the party’s undertaking at stake, despite of their ranks, and is resolute in cracking down upon any practice of formalities for formalities’ sake, bureaucratism, hedonism and extravagance in violation of discipline or law that undermines the people’s interests, regardless of its gravity.
The CPC’s accomplishments also boil down to its open mind and fulfillment of responsibilities for maintaining world peace and development and seeking the common good of humanity. The CPC remains committed to combining its mission of safeguarding China’s national interests with the cause of promoting world peace and development and the progress of humanity.
The CPC has always taken it its mission to maintain world peace and development and promote common development of other countries. Proceeding from the fundamental interests of the Chinese people and that of people of the world and having China’s future closely linked to that of the world, the CPC has dedicated itself to playing a constructive role in settling major international and regional issues, taking an active part in reforming and developing the world governance system and building a new model of international relations featuring mutual respect, equity, justice and win-win cooperation. So far, the CPC has established ties with over 500 political parties and organizations in 160 countries and regions worldwide.
The CPC has always taken it its mission to make new and greater contributions to mankind. Facing global challenges, the CPC has a keen sense of responsibility for the whole mankind, and, as an active advocator and promoter of the proposition of building a community of a shared future for mankind, has been making all endeavors to build an open, inclusive, clean, and beautiful world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity and together create a brighter future for humankind.
Looking to the future, the CPC will surely lead all Chinese sons and daughters to work together with unity and perseverance to secure a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society and embark on a new journey as a strong power, creating new and greater miracles along the new long march towards the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
