Xi’s “Four Comprehensives” a Strategic Blueprint for China
A moderately prosperous society, reform, rule of law, Party discipline -- these “Four Comprehensives” are Xi Jinping’s blueprint for China’s future.
The “Four Comprehensives” are tasks raised at Communist Party of China (CPC) meetings over the last two years, since President Xi Jinping took office.
The concept was first mentioned by Xi in December, “. . . Comprehensively build a moderately prosperous society, comprehensively deepen reform, comprehensively implement the rule of law, and comprehensively strengthen Party discipline.”
Shortly after Xi took helm of the CPC in November 2012, he put forward the concept of “the Chinese Dream,” or “the great renewal of the Chinese nation”.
“A moderately prosperous society” is not only the primary objective identified at the 18th Party Congress, but also “a crucial step towards the Chinese dream of great rejuvenation.”
Xi’ first trip as China’s leader was to Shenzhen, symbolic hub of Deng Xiaoping’s reforms, and promised, “no stop to reform and opening up”. “Deepening reform” identifies the route to prosperity and social progress. The “Four Comprehensives” come as China pays greater attention to improving governance following the economic miracle. Social justice has become an important goal. “The rule of law” came to prominence at the fourth session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, and guarantees modernization of the system of government while championing social justice.
The leadership has taken great pains to address corruption, which they believe may threaten the very survival of the Party and the state: “Strengthening Party discipline” is a must for the CPC to survive. The “Four Comprehensives” will ensure China continues steadily on its path of development. (Xinhua)
