Xi Jinping Texting One Million Party Cadres

“On behalf of the Central Committee of the Party, I am extending my cordial greetings to the nationwide grass-roots Party secretaries and college graduate village officials.” On January 5, 2010, Xi Jinping, China’s Vice President and a member of Politburo Standing Committee, sent the above text message to cell phones of one million local-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) cadres. 

The message marks the launch of the mobile phone information system for national grass-roots Party development work. The system, with a collection of one million cell phone numbers belonging to CCP officials at the province, city, township, and village levels, has been initiated to build up Party organizations through the use of modern technologies.
