The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) organized a reading forum on September 29 to encourage young officials to study the book Xi Jinping's Seven Years as an Educated Youth.
Song Xiuyan, vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, exchanged views with youth officials during the activity, which was organized by the Party committee of the ACWF and the committee of China Communist Youth League.
At the event, officials shared their experience and ideals from perspectives of learning, working and living.
All participants pledged to continue studying the book in a profound way; fortify their beliefs with politics as the essence; show absolute loyalty to the Communist Party of China (CPC); and, always adhere to the Communist faith.
Officials showed the commitment of sticking to the correct political direction; cultivating good learning habits and a hard-working spirit; and, achieving new accomplishments through the process of continuous learning and adapting to the new environment.
Youth officials from women's federations said they should highlight the main theme at work in terms of connecting and serving women from the general population; carry out initiatives at the grassroots level; and, make close connections with women.
Song praised young officials for their speeches and positive attitudes toward learning.
Since China held the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, President Xi has grasped the trend of development in a scientific way across China and the globe in the contemporary age, promoting the overall plan of the "Five-in-One Principle" and the coordinated development of the strategic "Four Comprehensives" with great political coverage and strong responsibility, Song said.
The principle means officials should promote all-round economic political, cultural, social, and ecological progress.
The "Four Comprehensives" refers to a complete four-pronged strategy that aims to comprehensively accomplish a moderately prosperous society, deepen reform, advance rule of law, and strengthen strict Party governance.
The efforts of Xi have created a new situation in following the path of socialism with Chinese characteristic; started a new journey in realizing the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation; and, won sincere support, respect and affection from the Party, the army and the people from all ethnicities, Song said.
The seven years Xi spent in the village of Liangjiahe, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, was a starting point in both history and the logic behind his remarks as well as his ideas, concepts and strategies about governing the country, Song added.
From a unique perspective, the book features a series of interviews which refer to real details in history which depict the hardships experienced by Xi throughout his growth over seven years in a vivid way.
It also reflects the idealistic pursuit of President Xi in his youth in terms of his patriotic feelings toward the country and people, studious spirit, pragmatic work style, and outstanding qualities.
President Xi is a role model in inspiring the growth of youngsters and improving the qualities of Party members and officials.
This book offers precious historical sources for people to understand the politics of Xi and learn from him, Song commented.
After reading the book, officials can have a thorough understanding of the extraordinary experience of Xi, along with his remarks, ideas, concepts and strategies about governing the country.
Song urged officials to safeguard the core status of Xi, who is also the general secretary of the CPC; stick to the idealistic belief with actions showing loyalty and support to the CPC in a conscious and firm way.
Song also urged officials to carefully study, make use of the book, and regard it as an inspirational motto to cultivate a tenacious spirit, positive energy and pragmatic work style.
Officials should unite their actions with knowledge in fulfilling their job responsibilities.
Song urged Party groups at various levels to organize officials to read the book as a key task for undertaking studies on the theoretical and practical issues of Party building; unite reading with learning of a series of remarks by Xi as well as his ideas, concepts and strategies about governing the country; and, constantly strengthen the "Four Consciousnesses", namely the "consciousnesses of the ideology, the whole, the core and the line."
Officials should keep in line with the CPC Central Committee with President Xi as the core in terms of politics, thoughts and actions; improving their political advanced nature as a member of the CPC; and, carrying forward the hardworking spirit throughout the progress of the CPC.
Song also urged officials to improve their work styles of connecting with and serving women at the grassroots level; deepen reform among women's federations; and, make progress to greet the upcoming 19th CPC National Congress.
