Guangming Daily: Party Committees to Emphasize Group Study

Guangming Daily published an article reporting that the Publicity Department and the Organization Department held a forum on the quality of the study sessions that a number of Party committee groups held and required that all levels of Party organizations are to host Party committee group studies that are more intense in order to improve the “personal quality and individual skill” of Party members when dealing with the new environment and with challenges. According to the article, an emphasis on the importance of group study has been lacking among a number of Party committee centers at different group levels. Some of them have followed a rigid formality but lack focus, which has severely impaired the quality of the group study. The article required that Party committee groups should elevate group study and make it a serious “political task” so they can adapt to change and advance forward.
