"It demands that we work harder to meet the public's ever-growing cultural needs," Fang says.

Similar to the popularity of museums, people's passion for the history of the Party and stories of those who contributed to the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949 has increased sharply in recent years.

Chen Yan, a docent at the Hunan CPC History Museum in Changsha, Hunan province, and her team relay stories based on the history of the Party and have toured across China to present more than 1,000 lectures since 2016. About 6 million people have listened to their lectures.

Chen, a delegate to the congress, says that she is very glad that carrying out public awareness initiatives on the history of the Party is written into the report.

"Revolutionary history is an important part of Chinese culture. Learning the history of the Party enables us to better deal with the future," says Chen.

In September, Chen and her colleagues were invited by middle schools and colleges to lecture on heroic stories of well-known communists to students. A lecture delivered by Chen in mid-September at Hunan Normal University attracted 9,700 young people.

Chen says it is beyond her expectations that so many young people are interested in the Party's history.
