A good example is the best sermon: CPC strengthens Party over past five years | Updated: 2017-07-20 08:17

Thorough cleanup of undesirable work style

Party officials should "look into the mirror, straighten the attire, take a bath and seek remedies." (Metaphorically refers to a requirement on Party officials for self-purification, self-perfection, self-renewal and self-progression)

"Mass line" refers to a guideline under which CPC officials and members are required to prioritize the interests of the people and exercise power on their behalf.

Based on arrangements made at the 18th CPC National Congress in November 2012, the campaign lasted 16 months starting from June 2013. But in terms of CPC's priority to cultivate closer ties with the people, as Xi said, it was just a start.

Through the campaign, official meetings were reduced by 586,000, almost 25 percent fewer than in the period before the campaign began.

Over 160,000 phantom staff members were removed from the government payroll and almost 115,000 vehicles taken out of illicit private use and returned to exclusive regular government affairs. Construction of 2,580 unnecessary official buildings was stopped.
