President Xi emphasises promoting study and application of Chinese socialism with new characteristics


2nd April 2023 – (Beijing) China’s Communist Party held its fourth group study session on Thursday, with the Political Bureau of the 20th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee focusing on the study and implementation of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.

Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, presided over the session, stressing that the study of the Thought is a fundamental requirement to advance China’s causes and pursue development in the new era. He noted that the Thought covers all realms and respects, including reform, development, social stability, domestic affairs, foreign relations, national defence, and governance of the Party, state, and military, and constitutes a complete scientific system.

Xi emphasised that to thoroughly study and understand the Thought, one must also grasp its worldview, methodology, and the stances, viewpoints, and methods running through it. The Party’s new theories should be applied to the implementation of the major strategic plans put forward at the 20th CPC National Congress.
