Communist Youth League

convenes national congress

The Communist Youth League of China (CYLC), a 91-year-old mass youth organization under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), opened its 17th national congress on Monday of June 17.

On behalf of the league’s current 89 million members, more than 1,500 CYLC delegates from across the country attended the opening session of the five-yearly congress in the Great Hall of the People.

All seven members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee — Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan and Zhang Gaoli — also attended the ceremony.

In a keynote speech delivered to extend the CPC Central Committee’s congratulations to the event, Liu Yunshan urged the youth to work hard to realize the “Chinese dream” of the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Achieving the major goals of China’s economic and social development that were put forth during the 18th National Congress of the CPC last year requires the continuous efforts of the country’s young generations, Liu said.

He called on the youth to follow instructions made by CPC Central Committee General Secretary Xi Jinping and strive to improve their skills and morality.

Young people should continue to “consolidate their belief in the socialist path, theories and system with Chinese characteristics” and aim to become “advancers, explorers and contributors” in the realization of the Chinese dream, the official said.

He also spoke highly of the job that the CYLC has done since its founding in 1922 in working with the CPC in full cooperation and with one heart and mobilizing young people to strive for national independence, the liberation of the people and the country’s prosperity.

 

BRAVERY & INNOVATION

Calling innovation the “source of power,” Liu said it is the thing that a nation must count on to achieve continuous improvement and development.

He expressed hope that Chinese youth will always have the bravery to bring innovation and invention in fundamental research areas and key projects, as well as in common production fields and daily life.

China is at the critical stage for completing the building of a moderately prosperous country and “faces a very heavy task of fostering reform, development and ensuring stability,” the official said.

Young Chinese people, whatever their circumstances and backgrounds, should aim to stand out by starting from ordinary positions and working diligently, he said.

Moreover, Liu said he hoped each young person always bears in mind the nation and its people, and be someone of responsibility and integrity, thus facilitating social harmony in China.

The new leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) was elected on Thursday of June 20 as the league concluded a four-day national congress.

Qin Yizhi, 48, a master’s degree holder, was elected first secretary of the Secretariat of the 17th Central Committee of the CYLC at the second session of the committee’s first plenum.

He had been vice-chairman of the Tibet autonomous regional government before being posted as first secretary of the Secretariat of the CYLC Central Committee in March this year.

Also at Thursday’s session, He Junke, Luo Mei, Wang Hongyan, Zhou Changkui, Xu Xiao and Fu Zhenbang were elected members of the Secretariat of the CYLC’s 17th Central Committee.

Members of the 17th Central Committee of the CYLC were elected at a plenary meeting of the league’s national congress on Wednesday, a day ahead of the congress concluding.

Founded in 1922, the CYLC is a mass youth organization under the leadership of the Communist Party of China and currently has 89 million members nationwide.

More than 1,500 CYLC delegates from across the country attended the five-yearly national congress in Beijing.

According to a report of the 16th CYLC Central Committee that was approved Thursday by the congress, the league will lead its members to strive for China’s prosperity, modernization and the realization of the “Chinese dream” — the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

The congress also adopted a revision of the CYLC Constitution that incorporated the Scientific Outlook on Development into the league’s action guide.

Xi urges CYLC to reinforce

youths’ belief in CPC

 

By Zuo Yuanfeng

President Xi Jinping on Thursday of June 20 called on the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) to reinforce Chinese youths’ belief in the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Xi made the comments during a group talk with the new leadership of the Central Committee of the CYLC, which was elected earlier Thursday.

Prior to Xi’s speech, Qin Yizhi, newly-elected first secretary of the Secretariat of the 17th Central Committee of the CYLC, reported on the just-concluded 17th national congress of the CYLC.

While congratulating on the newly-elected leadership and the smooth running of the congress, Xi urged them to set an example to commit to hard work and study, strict self-discipline as well as contact with the country’s youths.

Praising the CYLC’s work over the past years, Xi stressed that the youth league should prioritize the cultivation of successors for the socialist cause with Chinese characteristics as “the basic mission” while consolidating the youth foundation for the Party’s reign.

According to Xi, the CYLC should “help young people to set high ambitions, strengthen their belief in the socialist path with Chinese characteristics, equip them with scientific theories, inspire them with a historical perspective…,” reinforcing their belief in the CPC.

Xi described the youth league as a “strong fortress” for young people as it should listen to their voices, solve their problems and take care of them.

Meanwhile, Xi urged CYLC officials to improve their work capabilities by communicating with the youths while resolutely avoiding formalism, bureaucracy and profligacy, calling on them to hone their qualities in arduous and complicated regions.

In addition, Xi urged CPC committees at all levels to strengthen the guidance of the CYLC’s work and provide a sound work environment for youth league organizations.

Founded in 1922, the CYLC is an organization under the leadership of the CPC and currently has 89 million members nationwide.
