BEIJING -- Senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Wang Qishan said on Oct 25 the CPC’s anti-graft campaign and its efforts to build a clean government will never be concluded.
Wang, secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC, made the remarks while meeting with overseas members of the advisory board of Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management.
The development path of a country can be observed through not only at the macro level, such as its past and present politics, economy, society and culture, but also the micro level such as an important meeting, Wang said.
The fourth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, which convened here from Oct. 20-23, has made an overall plan for rule of law in the country, he said.
To govern the country under the rule of law requires managing the party with regulations, he noted.
“The discipline of a ruling party with more than 86 million members concerns its popularity among the people and the destiny of the country,” Wang said.
Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC in late 2012, the CPC Central Committee has been strictly governing the party, and improving the party’s style of work, building a clean government and combating corruption, he said.
“All these efforts have gained the support of the general public,” Wang said.
“This is just the beginning,” he said, adding that the party’s anti-graft campaign requires consistency, intensified supervision, discipline and accountability.
A clean government and a healthy and fair market offers the best soft environment for investment, he said.
Wang called for the overseas advisors to integrate international resources to give guidance for Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management, and contribute to the development of China’s education cause.
Advisors, including David Rubenstein, chairman of the Advisory Board and co-founder and co-CEO of the Carlyle Group, said they would continue to make positive efforts for China’s economic and educational development.
The advisory board, founded in 2000, consists of professors from foreign universities and executives from renowned multinational corporations.
