Decentralized administration

During Thursday's plenary session, the CPC Central Committee adopted a plan on institutional restructuring and the functional transformation of the State Council and suggested that the State Council submit it at the national legislature's session, according to the communique.

The meeting's participants vowed to push forward the reform of China's administrative system and further separate government administration from enterprises, investment, social undertakings and communal management, the communique said.

They stressed the importance of building a public service-oriented government featuring scientific function, an optimized structure, cleanness and high efficiency.

The government restructuring plan aims at simpler and decentralized administration, as well as improved administrative efficiency. To achieve that end, The CPC Central Committee has agreed that the government will steadily press ahead with "super-ministry" reform, reduce bureaucracy in administrative examinations and approval and transfer some of such responsibilities to lower levels.

The CPC Central Committee pledged to reform the social organization management system, improve and enhance macro-management, build basic systems and strengthen administration by law.

According to the communique, market and social forces will be given a greater role in allocating resources and managing social affairs, respectively.

Efforts will be made to motivate both the central and local government and enhance the government's scientific management capacity, it said.

The CPC Central Committee also emphasized the need to improve civil servants' work style, work efficiency and the quality of their service.

The CPC central committee also warned of severe challenges facing China amid a complex international situation and difficult domestic tasks concerning reform, development and maintaining stability.

All CPC members should be aware of the risks and prepare for the unexpected, the communique said, urging them to be more enterprising and innovative in their work.

The CPC central committee stressed the need to maintain economic development momentum.

People should take the pursuit of scientific development as an underlying guideline and prioritize the acceleration of growth model adjustments, the communique said.

The communique also urged efforts to promote sustainable and healthy economic development and to achieve practical progress in improving people's livelihoods.

The foremost political task of the CPC and the country is to continue to study, promote and implement the essence of the 18th CPC National Congress held last November so as to complete tasks assigned by the congress, the communique said.

Leading officials should play an exemplary role in grasping the congress's spirit, it said, adding that the key to deepening the campaign will be to improve CPC members' work style.

CPC members should also conduct themselves in a down-to-earth manner and use the spirit of the congress to guide their daily work and solve practical problems, according to the communique.

The document said the CPC will deepen reform and opening up by respecting the pioneering spirit of the people and further studying top-level design and overall planning for comprehensive systematic reforms.

Systematic reforms in economic, political, cultural, social and ecological aspects should be conducted in a coordinated way and innovation in theories, institutions, technology and culture should also be connected to build an efficient and scientific policy system, it said.

It is also necessary to strengthen party-building by improving the CPC's abilities to self-purify, self-improve and self-innovate so as to carry out the principle of the CPC administrating itself with strict discipline.

The CPC should strengthen its ideology and organization, as well as make efforts to improve its work style and fight corruption. The CPC should not try to avoid obvious contradictions and problems and should not cover up its errors, the document said.

CPC organs at all levels should make efforts to implement policies and regulations that can improve the CPC's work style, it said.

The document called on the CPC and people of all ethnic groups to unite and develop socialism with Chinese characteristics under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping as its general secretary.
