PRESIDENT ISSUES ‘IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS’ TO ALL REGIONS TO BOOST PARTY CONTROL OVER PRIVATE ENTERPRISE AND REJUVENATE THE NATION; ALL FIRMS WILL NEED EMPLOYEES FROM THE PARTY TO BOOST LAW ABIDANCE AND MORAL STANDARDS
The plan was detailed in a 5,000-word statement – and all regions and departments in the country have been told to follow the new guidelines.
This was the top story on Wednesday’s CCTV Evening News – how the president had issued “important instructions”.
It had a long-winded title: “Opinion on Strengthening the United Front Work of the Private Economy in the New Era”.
The ultimate goal is for the party to have ideological leadership of private enterprise.
The statement seeks to improve CCP control over private enterprise and entrepreneurs through United Front Work “to better focus the wisdom and strengthen of the private businesspeople on the goal and mission to realise the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
Xi’s instructions were issued ahead of a conference today on this very topic. The party wants to see a “united front” between private enterprise and government business.
