The development of a society relies on the sound operation of the ruling party. The CPC's actions in building a well-disciplined party are beneficial to China's further development. "It's a practice we, the Mexican Embassy in Beijing, should learn from," Enrique Escorza, a minister at the Mexican Embassy in Beijing, said at an event last June organized by the International Department of the CPC Central Committee (IDCPC).

Political party leaders from Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Mexico, foreign diplomats in China, a group of China study researchers, and representatives from related institutions attended the event, which was themed on the CPC's efforts to build a well-disciplined party in all aspects. Members of the CPC Shanxi Provincial Committee briefed all present on Chinese President Xi Jinping's new concepts and strategies regarding state governance, and Shanxi's effective measures to enhance Party discipline.

In recent years, China's ruling party, whose membership exceeds 88 million, and its system of cadre selection and promotion, as well its anti-corruption drives, has provided political parties in other countries with valuable guidance and propelled their growing exchanges.

Cadre selection

Secretary of the CPC Shanxi Provincial Committee Luo Huining gives a speech about the province's practice of strengthening Party discipline. 

The Organization Department of the CPC Jinzhong Municipal Committee in central Shanxi presented at the event a simulation of the process of selecting a county magistrate. An enterprising spirit is the most sought-after quality in candidates, Jinzhong Party Secretary Hu Yuting said. All newly appointed officials are required to sign an undertaking to achieve specific goals during their tenures and accept public oversight. Jinzhong selected six county leaders out of 118 candidates last year, which signifies that only those possessing the required attributes are appointed to leading positions.

The practice in Shanxi epitomizes the CPC's personnel system, which encompasses the selection, appointment and training of officials, and inter-departmental exchanges. Former General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee Hu Jintao said in his report to the 18th National Congress of the CPC: "We should appoint officials on the strength of their merits regardless of their origins, select officials on the basis of their moral integrity and professional competence, giving priority to the former, and promote only outstanding officials who enjoy popular support."
