Addressing the opening session of a recent workshop on the Sixth Plenary Session of the 18th Communist Party of China Central Committee attended by officials at the provincial and ministerial levels, President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, called on them to carry forward the Party's revolutionary spirit, not to be lax even for a moment in solving existing problems, and constantly meet the requirements of the times and the people.

As a 95-year-od political party, the CPC has become the backbone of the Chinese people, and the reason lies in its courage to face up to problems, to carry out self-scrutiny, and its strong capability to remedy what needs to be remedied and pursue self-purification. This is an important reason for the Party's lasting prosperity and vitality.

The Party's courage to conduct self-correction originates from the fact that the Party has no special interests except for the interests for the whole nation and the people. It is because it is without selfish interests that the Party can scrutinize itself.

The strict self-governance campaign launched by the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping as the core since the 18th National Congress of the CPC is an manifestation of the Party's determination and will for self-improvement. Behind the theoretical and practical innovations and all notable achievements scored in China's reform and development are the Party's endless pursuit of the spirit of self-purification, self-innovation and self-improvement.

No external forces can beat down the CPC, a party that now has 89 million members and more than 4.4 million organizations. The Party's fate is in its own hands. With the courage to continue its self-purification and self-correction, the Party will have the ability to maintain its vitality.--People's Daily
