BEIJING, June 18, 2021 / PRNewswire / – In from China fight against COVID-19, more than 39 million members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) fought the virus on the front lines as more than 13 million volunteers rendered service at the community level. Almost 400 of them sacrificed their lives to save others.
United as one and determined to save every life at all costs, China was one of the most successful at containing the virus.
It is a striking example which demonstrates from China commitment to a people-centered philosophy.
Rooted in history
Adhering to a people-centered philosophy has been key to CPC’s success over the past 100 years. From 57 members represented by 13 deputies at the First National Congress in 1921, the CPC has grown into a 91 million strong entity that governs a country of 1.4 billion people.
Laying the groundwork for a socialism with Chinese characteristics, the CCP led China overcoming obstacles on the way to its development, helping it to recover and strengthen itself until it finally becomes the world’s second-largest economy.
âPeople are the creators of history. They are the fundamental force that determines our Party and the future of the country, âsaid Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.
Commitment to the world
As COVID-19 continues to ravage the world, many countries have restricted grain exports. As a result, the number of people facing acute food insecurity reached 155 million last year, the highest in the past five years.
however, China is doing its part to ensure global food security by reducing grain imports and moderately increasing wheat and rice exports. It also continues to assist other developing countries through South-South cooperation.
On a national level, China achieved its poverty reduction target by the end of 2020, lifting nearly 100 million people out of poverty over the past eight years.
Over the next five years, China plans to take a series of measures, such as improving people’s incomes, boosting employment and building a high-quality education system.
âEnsuring that the people lead happy lives is the ultimate goal of all our work and is an important manifestation of our Party’s fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly,â Xi said.
Xi has constantly urged CCP members to stay true to the Party’s founding mission, which is to serve the people.
