The Committee for Party Affairs of Departments Directly Under the CPC (Communist Party of China) Zhejiang Provincial Committee held the finals of a book-themed speech contest of a reading promotion activity on April 20 in Hangzhou, east China's Zhejiang Province.

The "Follow General Secretary Xi Jinping to Read Good Books in the New Era" activity is organized to celebrate the upcoming World Book and Copyright Day (April 23).

By combining the theme of reading good books, Zheng put forward three requirements to Party members and cadres to inspire them to follow the spirit of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

Firstly, everyone should read original books and seize precisely on the point of books.

Secondly, all Party members should pay good attention to the Party's political building and strengthen their Party consciousness.

Thirdly, everyone should take responsibility to put everything into practice and to advance reform.

This activity is the first project of a series of "Follow General Secretary Xi to Read Good Books" reading activities, which introduce over 100 classic books mentioned  by General Secretary Xi in various occasions  to all Party members and lead them to understand Xi's thoughts for the New Era.

Since the beginning of the reading activity, there has been a new wave of reading more good books in the departments. Over 3,000 cadres and Party members took part and 14 finalists were named.

In the final, participants shared their understanding of various books with the audience, including both ancient Chinese and foreign classics.

The Committee has organized four book-related speech contests. Local Party members have formed a good habit of absorbing themselves in study and thinking while reading.

Organizers hope everyone can form good reading habits and gain useful knowledge from reading.
