 Chivalrous Island: The first year of this high-level seminar within the party focused on this serious topic

A few days ago, a friend of Uncle Ishima discovered an interesting phenomenon.

Local meetings were held before the Spring Festival, but at the end of last year or the beginning of this year, many places issued announcements in local party newspapers informing them that the agenda of the meetings would remain unchanged, but the reasons given for adjusting the meeting time were according to the needs of the work. It was found that all the adjustments deliberately avoided the time slot between the afternoon of January 20 and the morning of January 25.

What is so important that both local meetings can change their time? And obviously beyond the original plan of the place.


The answer is unveiled today.

According to Xinhua News Agency evening news, the provincial and ministerial leading cadres adhere to the bottom line thinking and focus on preventing and resolving major risks at the Central Party School on the morning of 21. This kind of seminar for leading cadres at provincial and ministerial levels is held at the beginning of each year. It has formed a routine and sometimes will be opened. For example, before the opening of the Nineteenth National Congress, there was a seminar for leading cadres at provincial and ministerial levels. On July 26, Xi Jinping made an important speech, which was generally interpreted as the most important high-level meeting within the Party before the opening of the Nineteenth National Congress. This important speech by Xi Jinping was Also known as the speech of July 26, it is widely conveyed and studied in the Party.

According to the usual practice, the seminar on leading cadres at provincial and ministerial levels at the beginning of each year has a theme. Generally, it is a study of the spirit of the inner-party plenary meeting held at the end of last year. It does not interfere with the local agenda of the two sessions, so there are already arrangements. However, the first seminar on Preventing and Resolving Major Risks held by the Central Committee has changed the time of the local two sessions. It also shows the special theme of the seminar and the urgency of the time.


The seminar was held in a high standard.

Seven standing committees attended, including members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, secretaries of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, deputy chairmen of members of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress, State Councillors, President of the Supreme Peoples Court, Procurator-General of the Supreme Peoples Procuratorate, deputy chairmen of CPPCC members and members of the Central Military Commission. All provinces, municipalities and Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, relevant departments of the central and state organs are mainly responsible for comrades, while major units of the army and departments of the Central Military Commission are mainly responsible for comrades participating in the seminar.

The so-called leading comrades are what we often call leaders. It can be seen that this is a seminar limited to senior leading cadres within the Party, that is, the critical minority within the Party that Xi Jin usually said should be grasped.

The seminar is a vivid manifestation of democratic centralism within the Party. The purpose of discussion is to gather wisdom and gain common understanding.


Xi Jinping made an important speech at todays opening ceremony, focusing on one theme: preventing and resolving major risks.

This theme is also one of the three key battles established by the Central Committee after the 19th National Congress of 2017. The other two are precise poverty alleviation and pollution prevention. Preventing and resolving major risks ranks first and top priority. At the Central Economic Work Conference in 2017, prevention and mitigation of major risks were further focused, highlighting the prevention and control of financial risks. That is to say, at that time, the focus of risk prevention was in the economic field, and the bottom line was that there was no systemic financial risk.

But the major risks mentioned in this workshop are obviously more comprehensive. Xi Jinpings speech involves major risks in the fields of politics, ideology, economy, science and technology, society, external environment and Party building. In a word, it can be summarized by a concept of overall national security concept.

There are six sections of Xi Jinpings exposition in the draft. The first is political security. Xi Jinping said that political security is fundamental. What is fundamental? Maintaining the ruling position of the Communist Party of China is fundamental, which is also the core of political security. It is interesting that Xi Jinping put ideological security in the focus of political security, highlighting two points: network and youth.

Xi Jinping once said that the main position of ideological struggle is in the network, and the main audience of the network is young people. Many forces at home and abroad are trying to cultivate their identifiers of values through the Internet, and even the opponents and subversives of the existing regime. The Arab Spring in the Middle East in the past few years and the recent Yellow Majia Movement in Europe are all fermented from the Internet, with young people as the main participants, resulting in social unrest and regime change. In this regard, we must remain clear-headed.

Xi Jinping emphasized that we should ensure that the younger generation becomes the builder and successor of socialism. This is not only ideological security, but also political security related to the ruling position.

Second is economic security. Today, with the release of economic data in 2018, the overall situation is good, which is stable, but stable and changeable, changing and worrying.

Change is not only our initiative to push forward the structural reform of the supply side, but also the unprecedented change caused by changes in the external environment, which is bound to impact the domestic reform process. Xi Jinping pointed out four issues concerning economic security.

First, the real estate market. The central government does not want to speculate in real estate, nor does it want a large fluctuation in the real estate market to affect national economic security, which is the main tone. The relationship between real estate and national economy is too deep, and it is also a pain point for the people. The long-term mechanism scheme including real estate tax still needs to be implemented steadily.

Second, the financial market. Some people say that Chinas stock market is like a bird of panic. In the process of reform, many policies often cause fluctuations in the financial market, so Xi Jinping emphasized that we should be good at guiding expectations.

Third, small and medium-sized enterprises. Xi Jinping emphasized that financing is difficult and expensive. At present, small and medium-sized enterprises facing difficulties need to survive and survive, because these private enterprises are the body cells of social vitality and have great significance for stable employment. Employment is stable, and society is naturally stable.

Fourth, the zombie enterprise. Dealing with zombie enterprises is essentially to remove the inefficient part of the national economy. On this issue, we can not divide state-owned enterprises and private enterprises, nor do 369 enterprises because of ownership. We must proceed from the overall situation of economic development and speed up market clearance. However, Xi Jinping is also well aware of the three major difficulties in the disposal of zombie enterprises which are difficult to start, implement and resettle personnel. After all, this is linked to peoples livelihood and social stability. Therefore, we should intensify our efforts and properly handle them.

These four points are actually the bullnose in the eyes of the central government to prevent and defuse major risks in the economic field.

The third point is the safety of science and technology. This good understanding, the Sino-US economic and trade friction started in 2018, let us clearly understand Chinas shortcomings in the field of core technology, these core technologies do not break through, Chinas neck will always be pinched in the hands of others. Is this not national security?

The fourth point is social security. The essence of social security is social stability, including employment, education, social security, medical and health, food safety, safety in production, social security, housing market regulation and so on. These areas of peoples livelihood are closely related to each other. We must make the people feel secure, happy and secure.

The fifth point is external environmental security. Mainly international changes, such as the need to guard against the impact of trade protectionism and unilateralism on China. At present, China has been deeply integrated into globalization. In this century of unprecedented changes, it can not be alone. Development and security will be two major challenges in the future.

The sixth point is the ruling security within the Party. Xi Jinping mentioned the four tests: the long-term test of governance, the test of reform and opening up, the test of market economy and the test of external environment. He also mentioned the four dangers: the danger of mental slack, the danger of inadequate capacity, the danger of breaking away from the masses and the danger of negative corruption. To win the test and overcome the danger, the foundation is to clear up the serious hidden dangers existing in the Party, that is, to constantly self-revolution.

The risks behind these six security points are not independent, but interlinked and interacted in reality. If not handled properly, it is likely that a burst point will trigger a series of crises. Xi Jinping said that we should effectively prevent all kinds of risk linkage, that is the meaning.

So, this risk must be considered in an all-round way, but not carefully?


Nevertheless, the Chinese began to speak dialectics from the pre-Qin Dynasty: where misfortune and fortune depend, where fortune and misfortune lie. Dangerous, but the fatal thing is that the crisis has not yet erupted, he was frightened first. Therefore, we might as well take a long-term view and always look at the general situation, always think about the overall situation, and regard this climb across the ridge as an opportunity to experience the cadre team. After all, what kind of cadre force is there, what kind of combat effectiveness will there be.

At the end of his speech, Xi Jinping emphasized the spirit of struggle and ability of struggle. He said that leading groups and cadres at all levels should strengthen their fighting experience, enhance their fighting skills and maintain their fighting spirit forever. Young cadres, in particular, need to fight with real weapons in major struggles. It is clear that the organizational system should find and use a number of outstanding cadres from the prevention and resolution of major risks.

Xi Jinping quoted a lyric: Place the rough road, fight hard and start again. I believe that everyone will hum out unconsciously.
