According to Xinhua, during the campaign to increase Communist Party members in non-State entities, 12,000 party branches were established with another 24,000 in the pipeline. New memberships rose to 65, 000. The party organizations have tracked down 73,000 party members who did not contact local party organizations due to transfer of jobs or retirement. Some local party organizations have set up dedicated offices for party building in the non-State sector. Close to 30,000 targets have been identified and 145,000 party instructors were dispatched to them.
