affiliation before raising your question we see many foreign friends at the press conference we will provide simultaneous interpretation throughout the press conference if you ask your question in english your question will be translated through consecutive interpretation the floor is not open thank you with cctv china has completed the building of a moderate prosperous society in our respects and is marching toward the second centenary goal in terms of addressing inequality and achieving common prosperity what challenges do you face and how do you address those challenges well this is a very trending topic common prosperity is an essential requirement of socialism a civilian feature of china-style modernization and a call of the people not long ago the 10th meeting of the central commission on financial and economic affairs conducted research and the research on this matter and general secretary xi jinping made important remarks at the meeting and made overall planning my understanding is that there are the following key points first what is common perspective we have completed the building of a moderately prosperous society in our respects and on that basis we need to continue to do a good job in both making a bigger pie and dividing it well we need to advance high quality development and raise the income of both urban and rural residents and narrow the gap of income distribution and prevent a wealth pollenization prosperity is prosperity for all people not for the few it is prosperity in both material and cultural senses not uniform egalitarian prosperity second how to realize common prosperity common prosperity requires common efforts and this is the fundamental path we need to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation encourage diligent law binding and enterprising wealth creators and allow some people to get rich first and mobilize and help the late comers we will not opt for the robin hood and improve livelihood by advancing high quality development and create a more inclusive and fair environment for people’s education and skills training will expand the upward mobility pipeline to create more opportunities for more people we need to advance equal access in public services and do what we can do and avoid falling into the trap of welfarism that encourages laziness we need to build a fundamental system featuring the coordination between primary secondary and tertiary distributions and step up adjustment by taxation social security and transfer payment and scale up the middle income bracket forming a olive shaped distribution structure that tapers towards both ends and it will not be conducted in a compulsory manner we need to promote the supportive roles of distribution uh income distribution measures third we need to be clear-eyed about the timeline complexity and challenges in achieving common prosperity we are now building a modern socialist country and moving from a wealth of society to common prosperity and china is being transformed from a middle-income country to a high-income country so it will be a dynamic process and it cannot be realized overnight without priority we need to be steady incremental and committed one thing after another and one year after another and work for substantive progress in achieving common prosperity common prosperity for all in the new era thank you next question great importance to the fine traditional culture and the essence of the traditional culture is confucianism how does the cpc assess the traditional culture based on confucianism and how to comment on the history of ruling the people with confucianism and how to define the relationship between socialism with chinese characteristics and confucianism [Music] to understand the cpc it has been working to carry forward the fine traditional culture it is also playing an important role in guiding the development of culture we know that the traditional chinese culture includes rich school of thoughts cultures it is also the most valuable cultural asset of the cpc fine traditional chinese culture of course it includes the reasonable scientific and progressive part of confucianism the cpc and socialism with chinese characteristics are rooted in the rich soil of chinese culture and they both are the product of the combination of marxism and the fine traditional chinese culture historically speaking the cpc has all along paid attention to and good at combining the essence of marxism with the unique features of traditional fine chinese [Music] that socialism historical mission and unique national conditions we have created today’s cpc and the development path that suits our national conditions going forward we will continue to promote innovative adaptation and creative development take a rational attitude to draw upon the fine traditional chinese culture at the same time we will learn all fine results of human civilization to add impetus to the course of the cpc and source of ideas thank you after biden took office in the united states he has repeatedly stressed that the competition with china is a competition between democracy and autocracy and they believe that the cpc’s governor’s philosophy is the biggest challenge to the democracy and liberalism of the west though the chinese government says that is not export is a value system but in the eyes of many americans and westerners china is increasingly exporting its value system to the outside world through various ways and to change the existing international norms what is your response we’ll have uh director liu to answer your question thank you for your question wow you mentioned the so-called characterization by the united states such characterization is based on the wrong perception it means that the united states has not figured out what is true democracy it doesn’t understand that its practice takes different forms in the world for democracy there should not and there has not been just one model or one template what kind of democracy to pursue should be based on what could be compatible with the country’s reality its tradition its history and the will of the people some want to impose its own system and model of democracy on other countries or this itself is against the democratic principle what kind of democracy to practice should be the choice of the people of their country not be decided by other countries for the u.s characterization it does not hold water it is wrong some in the us believe that the cpc’s governing philosophy is a challenge to the system of democracy and freedom of the west well there is also a mistake in such a belief i’m wondering if the us is no longer confident when it comes to democracy because of their flaws in their own system which have been noticed by country people in other countries if the united states believes their system is the best their democracy model is the best and they have the support of the people then what is there to worry about what are they afraid of why are they afraid of the so-called challenge for china if china’s democratic system has been improved to be successful what does it mean it means that one-fifth of the world population enjoy economic and social development a better standard standard of living it also brings development opportunities to people of other countries so this is also important i believe they should be welcomed by the united states not being rejected by the united states for the cpc from day one it’s been committed to leading the chinese people in pursuing [Music] freedom and democracy generation after generation of the chinese communists devoted to this cause shed blood made the ultimate sacrifice the people finally became masters of the country and we have established an improved socialism democracy chinese democracy has its own features it puts people first it’s whole process democracy it combines leadership by the party people’s ownership and law based governance the cpc leadership and the socialist system including that of democracy are important choices made by the chinese people in the course of history the trans people are the builder beneficiary and guardian of socialism democracy with chinese characteristics they approve of they firmly support such system and they have full confidence in such a democratic system you mentioned that internationally pursuing external cooperation china has been exporting its values or its political system i want to stress that china respects the choice china never exports its ideology or value to say that china has been dominating the international community or international affairs that is uh baseless is time we support exchanges at it and mutual learning between different civilizations systems and religious beliefs on equal footing based on mutual respect and we want to learn from other countries as well so the more exchange and mutual learning um based on mutual respect and unequal footing between countries the more it will contribute to human progress and peace and prosperity of the world thank you according to statistics cpc now has a membership of over 95 million how do we guarantee the quality of such a large membership are there some members who joined the party to pursue their own interests and how can we ensure the purity of party members mr chi bing will take this question by june and this year the cpc has 95.148 million members and 4.864 million primary level organizations making it the largest political party in the world since the cpc’s pound founding we always take the vanguard nature and purity of the party as a fundamental issue an important goal in partnership in particular after the 18th party congress the cbc central committee with commerce xi jinping at the core has comprehensively advanced strict party governance and the development of the contingent of party members we’ve seen a an increase in both the number and quality over the past century we always worked to build the party thinking and strengthening it with theories follow the scientific guidance of marxism and arm the party with latest outcomes in adapting marxism to chinese realities we are committed to our lofty ideas and to the goal of pursuing communism the greatest cause of humanity the cpc always puts the people first we find our roots lifeline and strength in the people the cpc and the people have shared hearts shared breadth and shared these futures features are between the vivid demonstrations of the vanguard nature and purity of the tens of millions of members and they have laid the foundation for the high quality development the cpc is highly organized and disciplined it has a strict strictly organized structure that operates smoothly and gets things done from the central level to local and primary levels all organizations are committed to performing their political responsibility of enforcing party discipline which is implemented by each and every party branch and party member ensuring that all primary level organizations and the contingent of party members fully leverage their vanguard rules we have well-developed system of regulation with the charter as the foundation and rules and regulations as the backbone and we exercise strict governance based on regulations the cpc has rock firm discipline in particular after the 18th party congress we have worked to further strengthen discipline and draw red lines and bottom lines for party members we conduct strict applicants and give top priority to political to the political criterium we recruit new members one by one and consider the features of the times to recruit progressive members of all walks of life to become a cpc member there’s no requirement for identity education or wealth but there is very strict political and moral requirements to become a cpc member the application process is very strict it requires not only active application but also strict examination of the organization after accession each and every member needs to be incorporated into a party branch or party group or a particular party organization and attend regular party organization activities accept the supervision of the organization and people and strengthen party spirit concerning the circumstances and tasks of a certain period and the outstanding issues among party members programs since the 18th party congress will have conducted five collective education programs thanks to these efforts we conduct stringent intra-party political activity which played an important role in rooting out incorrect thinking members and ensuring the high quality development of the contingent of the cpc we have conducted an ongoing anti-corruption campaign to root out the corrupt elements among party members in conjunction with party organization activity meetings and democratic review meetings we conducted regular handling of unqualified party members and expelled the unqualified ones out with no mercy since the 18th party congress over 900 000 members have been exited from the party this shows the courage of the cpc for self-revolution despite the pain to ensure the health of the party and the vitality of the contingent of the cpc a hundred years on from its founding the cpc is still in its prime thank you next some foreign media outlets and think tanks have been firing veiled criticisms against the cpc that united front saying that through its united front work the cbc is infiltrating the academia business businesses media and political circle of western countries and thus poses a threat to their national security what is the cpc’s united front really about thank you for your question we have also noticed the issue you just erased i think some of the criticisms be a result these people are doing this with rigid cold war mentality and ideological bias i wish to take this opportunity to explain to you what the cpc-led united front is about so what is united front simply put it is about great unity and solidarity it is about making more friends and less enemies throughout history and across the world all political forces understand the importance of unity and are all out there seeking unity the difference lies in their purposes for the cpc-led united fund the purpose it is to enhance the great unity among all chinese at home and abroad national rejuvenation and people’s happiness in the cpc’s century-old work on united front we have formed many essential values and principles for instance the principle of seeking common ground and shoving differences is adapted to balance between commonality and diversity more specifically it is to seek and expand commonalities while respecting and tolerating differences the principle of win-win cooperation is another example on the basis of pursuing and realizing common interests this principle requires respecting protecting and accommodating the partners interests then there is the principle of democratic consultation it is about making decisions based on wide and thorough consultations by all inclusiveness and mutual learning between different cultures and civilizations promote harmony between countries across the world and call for building a community with a shared future for mankind we attach importance to harnessing the role of overseas chinese and students studying abroad in connecting china and the world our purpose is to enhance people-to-people exchanges and friendly ties between in other countries internal affairs and we never export our ideology or social system china conducts its united front work with openness who are calling us infiltrating other countries their claims are totally unfounded we will continue to consolidate and expand our united front better harness its important role and stay committed next question thank you people’s daily since the 18th party congress the discipline and supervision bodies have sanctioned more than four million people including many leading officials at varying levels is this big number damaging the cpc’s image the cpc central committee exercises strict governance over the party with the focus on the word strict and how is that reflected having the courage to undertake self-revolution self-reform is a feature that distinguishes the cpc from other political parties general secretary xi jinping stated at the rally marking the cpc centenary 70 on the new journey the small red boat into a giant ship which has led the endeavors of our country toward great progress and the quote i wanted to use here by general secretary xi jinping is that an important reason why the party remains so vital and vibrant despite having undergone so many trials and tribulations is that it practices effective self-supervision and full and rigorous self-governance since the 18th party congress the party central committee with comrade xi jinping at its core has given high priority to strengthening self-discipline and made a part of the four-pronged comprehensive strategy it has sought to rally party members in the mass with the party’s fine conduct govern the party with strict discipline and tackle corruption with zero tolerance a sweeping victory has been secured and consolidated in the fight against corruption and historic achievements made in the party’s endeavor to enhance strict self-governance in the new era the friend from the media also mentioned a number of people being subjected to disciplinary sanctions under the strong leadership of the central committee from the 18th congress to the end of june this year discipline and supervision bodies nationwide have investigated a total of 4.173 million people in 3.884 million cases the central committee’s focus on strict governance is reflected mainly in the following six aspects first on political thinking it requires party members to equip the political mind with xi jinping thought on socialism with chinese characteristics for a new era enhance political integrity translate the sense of mission into voluntary pioneering solid actions [Music] on supervision it has built an authoritative and efficient supervision system led by the party and covers all endeavors and strengthen the political supervision and day-to-day supervision to ensure that the powers given by the party and the people are exercised in the right way an enforcement it requires strictly enforcing political disciplines and rules within the party preventing seven types of discipline violations and building a whole party into a hard steel [Music] according to statistics from the 18th party congress to the end of june this year a total of 3.804 million party members have been subjected to disciplinary sanctions fourth on personal management my it strictly investigates and sanctions those buying their way into office trading official positions and bribing voters and rectifies the misconduct in personnel management it is strengthened day-to-day management by giving prompt warnings and reminders of rectification once a red flag is identified so that party members understand they are protected by strict management fifth on conduct it requires unrelenting implementation of the eight point decision on improving party and government conduct and continued targeted actions against excessive formalities bureaucratism hiddenism and extravagance from the 18th party congress to the end of june this year 637 000 cases of violating the point decision have been dealt with on anti-corruption the party central committee sees that there are no no-go zones no ground is left unturned and no tolerance is shown for corruption and resolutely sanctions leading officials that defy warnings corruption cases where political and economic problems are entwined and minor corruptions that take place closer to the people greater progress has been made in creating a deterrent inhibitor and moral defense against corruption the party’s commitment to strict self-governance and anti-corruption is not empty talk it is consistent and steadfast [Music] the result is for all to see the party’s conduct has changed for the better and a more united and stronger party providing even stronger political guidance and safeguard for the advancement of the endeavors of the party and the country we would rather live up to the expectations of the 1.4 billion chinese people several thousand officials among our ranks according to a survey by the national statistics statistics bureau 95.8 of chinese people believe that the work constrict party governance in 2020 has been productive that is 16.5 percentage points higher than in 2012. it shows that the people trust the party more and has full confidence in the path theory system and culture of socialism with chinese characteristics thank you the cpc has stressed ensuring party leadership overall work and the party exercises overall leadership over all areas of endeavor in every part of the country how to understand the overall party leadership some in other countries say that this is one party autocracy what’s your view on this in chapter three of the publication there are clear answers i have also heard the cpc leadership is the defining feature of socialism with chinese characteristics and the biggest strength of the system of socialism with chinese characteristics this leadership status is not self-proclaimed it is determined by the nature of the party and the choice of history and people it is also stipulated in the chinese constitution history and practice have proved that leadership by the cpc is of foundational importance to the survival of the party and the country it concerns the interest and future of the people across the country overall party leadership means the leadership is comprehensive systemic and holistic it includes reform development and stability domestic policy defense and foreign policy governance of the party the country and the military and endeavors all sectors and every part of the country the leadership of the cpc must be insured you sign focuses on upholding the status of leadership and governance of the cpc it is also about building a new type of political party relations featuring cooperation unity multi-party cooperation and political consultation system under the leadership of the cpc it is a great creation it is under the leadership of the cpc with the cpc ruling the country and other parties participating in state affairs so it is a good combination of uh governing and participation leadership and cooperation and consultation supervision it is a basic organizational principle and leadership system of the cpc this system is about combining centralism based on democracy and democracy guided by centralism it ensures that the will of the members and party organizations can be fully expressed and their initiative is fully unleashed it also ensures that we can pour the wisdom and strength of the whole time unified actions combine party leadership people student ownership and law-based governance to govern the country according to law and promote rule of law under the leadership of the cpc at the same time the party conducts activities within the constitution and laws all party and political organs and social groups and every citizen must obey and abide by constitution and laws in particular party officials must lead by example in respecting learning abiding by and applying the laws six leadership system and governance system will enhance its capacity to govern in a scientific and democratic way and in accordance with law in an institutional and standardized manner to make sure that the party’s leadership will be implemented in all areas all aspects and all links of governance so that different sectors and areas can fulfill their own duties take up their own responsibilities while coordinating and complementing one another so from the above i believe that there’s nothing like the so-called one-party autocracy thank you recently people are following very closely the anti-trust measures by the chinese government for example the overhauling of internet platforms some see that as a tightening over private corporations and some foreign investors have expressed concerns they worry that china may change its policy of opening up and on the private sector how do you see that mister will take this question well your question concerns some keywords including antitrust internet platform private sector open it up anti-trust is a common practice of market economy countries over the past several decades the u.s the eu and some other countries have been advancing their own antitrust measures now china’s economy is ever expanding with more and more large corporations which could give rise to monopoly strengthening anti-trust and opposition against unfair competition is a routine job of the chinese government it helps shape a more level playing field helps create more opportunities for all types of market entities particularly smes and helps better protect the law for rights and interests to strengthen the oversight of internet platforms and other large scale tech firms and to prevent monopoly and unchecked expansion of capital is a worldwide conundrum and every country is making explorations we are committed to giving equal importance to regulation and development on the one hand we are setting signal lights for capital improving the market access and negative lists and interacting the previously the previously misguided and hazardous trends in a bid to protect data security and personal privacy upholding national security and public interests in promoting the well regulated and healthy development of all types of capital on the other hand we need to know that internet platform economy is an important component of advanced productivity it should be well leveraged to optimize resource allocation promote science and technology advancement improve people’s lives and participate in international cooperation and competition stronger regulation is for healthier and more sustainable and longer term development and that applies to the capital market among the internet platform companies they are both state-owned ones as well as private ones and foreign ones and many of them have also have mixed ownership the overhauling of the internet platforms it is about legal offences not targeted against private and foreign firms that shouldn’t be over that shouldn’t be mistaken first we’re always committed to the basic socialist basic a basic socialist economic system and the principle of two no e-resolutions which means no resolution about working to consolidate and development develop the private sector and know a resolution about working to encourage support and guide the development of the non-public sector they are both important components of china’s economic and social development private firms and private entrepreneurs are our families and for our own families we need to be both considerate and strict to realize the healthy growth of the private sector and private entrepreneurs is china’s state policy general secretary xi jinping stressed on multiple occasions that china’s door of open up will not be closed they will only open up even wider the new development paradigm is not about domestic circulation behind closed doors but about dual circulations of opening up we will continue to advance high level opening up better development and security earnestly implement the foreign investment law protect property rights and ipr make our policies more transparent and predictable communicate well with the market and keep improving the world-class uh market-oriented business environment governed by law we welcome all countries firms and investors to come to china to share china’s super sized fast growing market and the opportunities that it creates thank you next question there were glories and achievements and there were also setbacks and lessons how do you look at these setbacks and is the cpc deliberately playing them down thank you thank you for your question the period between 1921 and 2021 has been an extraordinary journey for the cpc over this past century the cbc has united and led the chinese people in overcoming one challenge after another and secured one victory after another making great accomplishments in the new democratic revolution socialist revolution and reconstruction reform and opening up and socialist modernization and socialism with chinese characteristics in the new year the chinese nation has achieved a great transformation from standing up getting rich to growing strong the chinese society has been fundamentally changed all this is a great contribution to human progress and development as the cpc has united and led the chinese people in achieving all these accomplishments it has also experienced some errors and setbacks the cpc is not a patient refusing to see a doctor it does not shy away from or try to hide these errors and setbacks it faces them squarely finds their causes and draws wisdom and strength from them to forge ahead the cpc has put forth two resolutions on historical issues which fully and systematically summarized experiences and lessons learned from history enabling unified thinking and unity among the whole party encouraging observations in a historical context and aiming to create a better future at its important meetings while summarizing accomplishments and experience the party also screens for shortcomings and weak links in its work culture and who put forth measures for improvement when we compile and publish work some part of history such as the history of the cpc we adopted a serious and scientific attitude and presented the efforts of the cpc in a way of seeking truth from facts these works including include volumes 1 and 2 of history of the cpc 90 years of the cpc and this year’s version of a brief history of the cpc as general secretary xi jinping stressed our party has always been serious about the errors and mistakes of our own including those of top leaders we dare to acknowledge them we can analyze them correctly and we rectify them with determination this way such errors and mistakes together with the party’s successful experience become valuable textbooks of history a path can be found only through exploration all political parties conduct their activities in a certain historical environment and are therefore constrained by specific historical conditions when trying to understand and review the cpc’s centuryline journey historical development and correctly understand and assess major events important meetings and key percentages in party history historical nihilism of various forms should be rejected the cpc’s key to success lies in its ability to view its own history in a scientific and objective way it’s courage to stand with truth and rectify mistakes it’s determination to rise again and write the wrongs after setbacks and errors and its constant efforts to open up new prospects the courage to undertake self-reform to purify improvement of the cpc and it is also a distinctive hallmark of the cdc thank you some western countries have been have kept talking about upholding the rules based international order and accusing china of challenging the international order and coercing other countries economically the cpc is advancing reform and development of the global governance system does not mean that you’re refusing the current international order and rules thank you mr liu jin chow will take this question well thank you for this question it has to be said that the so-called rules-based internet international order put forward by a small number of questions may sound very good but we need to analyze it in depth what are the rules that they are talking about and who set those rules and we need to dive deep into its essence by watching and analyzing for quite some time we believe their rules are based on military reliance and ideology and rules that they themselves wrote it is aimed at upholding the dominance of a small number of countries in the world and screening out developing countries from the global system and the global governance system there’s only one system and one order in the world and we must emphasize the role of the united nations the un is the organization that can mobilize and reflect consensus the most and it can embodies democracy in global order so we believe we need to uphold the international system with the un at the core and the international order based on international law we believe there is only one set of rules that is the basic norms governing international relations based on the purposes and principles of the u.n charter yes we also believe there is only one multilateralism that is the true multilateralism based on the purposes and principles of the u.n charter and futures equality and women cooperation not the pseudo-multilateralism conducted by some countries that is unilateralism in essence under the pretext of multilateralism some countries are accusing china of conducting coercion i think on the contrary a series of initiatives and proposals that china has put forward internationally including the belt and road initiative and the free and open principle in global trade for example we believe on the basis of equality and mutual benefit countries need to carry out their trade exchanges all these initiatives are well received on the country who are people that are attempting to monopolize global affairs monopolize uh the development advantage create exclusive blocks conducting decoupling supply cuts and sanctioning and push the world into division and even confrontation people are clear-eyed about that china pursues openness instead of seclusion we oppose international rules instead of hegemony we conduct consultation cooperation instead of conflict and confrontation and we progresses with the time instead of stand still china has always been building global peace contributing to global development and upholding international order the cpc has put forward the vision of building a community with a shared future for mankind and building an open inclusive clean and beautiful world featuring lasting security universe lasting peace universal security and common prosperity in a bid to address the realistic issues in the world and to realize
