Delegates from the Communist Party of China have launched heated discussions on the report given at the opening session of the 20th CPC National Congress. Some found youth development a highlight of the report. Our reporter Liu Jiaxin spoke with delegate Wang Dongmei, an educator at China Youth University of Political Studies.
LIU JIAXIN Beijing "It's really nice to have you here, Ms. Wang. What's your overall feeling after listening to the report of the 20th CPC National Congress? Which part impressed you the most?"
WANG DONGMEI Director, Dept. of CPC History and Youth Movement History, China Youth University of Political Studies "As a frontline Party delegate to attend this grand congress, I feel very excited! The Central Committee's report has a clear theme, comprehensive content, and rich connotation. It sets forth a series of new ideas, and makes a series of new arrangements. It further sounds the call of building a modern socialist country and promoting national rejuvenation in an all-around way.
"In his report, Xi Jinping stressed that today's young people are born at the right time. They have a very broad stage to display their talents and a very bright prospect to realize their dreams."
LIU JIAXIN Beijing "As you just mentioned, the report says when the youth are strong, the country is strong. As an educator of young people, what's your take on the report's directive as it relates to youth?"
WANG DONGMEI Director, Dept. of CPC History and Youth Movement History, China Youth University of Political Studies "I have noticed that many of the contents of the report are closely related to youth development. For example, we should provide education to the satisfaction of the people and train socialist builders and successors who are well developed morally, intellectually, physically, aesthetically, and in labor education. We should develop quality education and promote educational equity. For example, policies and measures on youth employment and housing are aimed at creating favorable conditions for youth development.
