Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era is China's Marxism in the 21st century with originality and features of the era, a senior Communist Party of China official says.

Xi's Thought should be fully learned, since it makes a major, original contribution to developing Marxism, said Wang Huning, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, while addressing a symposium in Beijing on Friday on the recent publication of the second volume of the book Xi Jinping: The Governance of China.

In addition, Xi's Thought offers an action guide for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and sheds light on the direction for building a community with a shared future for mankind, said Wang.

Following publication of the book's first volume in 2014, the second volume was published earlier this month by the Beijing-based Foreign Languages Press in Chinese and English language editions.

The second volume collects 99 of Xi's speeches, conversations, instructions and letters between Aug 18, 2014, and Sept 29 this year.

The CPC Central Committee's Publicity Department and Organization Department jointly issued a notice recently, instructing Party organizations at all levels to take the book's two volumes as authoritative books for getting the gist of Xi's Thought and that of the 19th CPC National Congress.

Wang called for great efforts in using the book's essence to ensure that the Party's innovative theories effectively boost thinking, guide practices and promote works.

The second volume offers a record of how the CPC Central Committee, with Xi Jinping at its core, led nationwide efforts in developing socialism with Chinese characteristics, and it shows the evolution and fruits of Xi's Thought, Wang said.

The volume also displays China's wisdom and solutions for building a community with a shared future for mankind and for boosting peace and development, Wang said.

Publicity abroad for the two volumes should be reinforced to boost global understanding of Xi's Thought, Wang added.

Huang Kunming, head of the CPC Central Committee's Publicity Department, said Party officials should take the lead in translating what they learn into political capability and governing capacities.
