Li asked all levels to execute the guidelines in the “Opinion” and to implement the Party’s talent management system.
According to the article, the “Opinion” is a guideline developed under the new environment. It laid out systemic requirements which will enable the Party to be completely in charge of talent management, while the rest of the government entities should carry out their responsibilities and actively assist the Party.
