China will further strengthen and improve the work on retired cadres, according to an official document jointly released by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on Feb 4.
Work on retired cadres is an important part of the task of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and retired personnel should be encouraged to contribute more to China’s construction of a moderately well-off society, said the document.
Related departments should actively respond to the issues of personnel structure, thoughts and concepts, modes of activities and services management of the retired cadres, said the document.
The CPC Central Committee and the government will co-lead the effort, and work groups of retired cadres must supervise and coordinate, said the document, calling for all walks of society to get involved in this work.
The document also urged officials in charge to pay great attention to the well-being of retired cadres and visit them from time to time.
