Beiging, April 30: China's President Xi Jinping has asked Party training units to keep their teaching consistent with the Communist Party of China (CPC) ideology and politics.

The key to achieving the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation is to have an army of CPC officials with "iron-firm" faith, discipline and responsibility. It is Party schools' responsibility to instill these qualities in officials, Xi, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said in a speech first given on Dec. 11 and due to be published in CPC magazine Qiushi on Sunday.

"The Party's will should be the will of the schools and its mission should be their mission," he said. According to Xi, research by Party schools should focus on developing CPC theories so as to consolidate the Party's leadership over ideology and Marxism's guiding role in ideology.

The ideology of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has undergone dramatic changes throughout the years, especially during Deng Xiaoping's leadership. While foreign commentators have accused the CPC of lacking a coherent ideology, the CPC still call themselves and portray themselves as communists.

In recent years, foreign commentators have discussed that the Communist Party of China (CPC) does not have an ideology. The party organization is pragmatic and interested only in what works.
