20th CPC Central Committee to hold third plenary session in July


The third plenary session of the 20th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee will be held in Beijing in July, according to a decision made at a CPC Central Committee Political Bureau meeting on Tuesday.

According to the main agenda of the session, the Political Bureau will report its work to the Central Committee, and the session will primarily study issues concerning further comprehensively deepening reform and advancing Chinese modernization.

The Political Bureau meeting on Tuesday also analyzed the current economic situation and economic work and deliberated on a document about policies and measures for continuously advancing the high-quality integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta.

Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, presided over the meeting.

Reform and opening up is an effective instrument for the cause of the Party and for the people to make great strides in keeping up with the times, the meeting said.

The current and future periods are critical for building a strong country and realizing national rejuvenation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization. China's reform must continue in the face of complex international and domestic situations, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial changes, and the new anticipation of the people, according to the meeting.

Deepening reform is essential to upholding and improving the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and modernizing China's governance system and capacity, the meeting said.

It is also essential to implementing the new development philosophy and better adapting to the evolution of the principal contradiction facing Chinese society, ensuring that all the people share the benefits of modernization more fully and fairly, coping with major risks and challenges, winning the strategic initiative in the increasingly fierce international competition and building a stronger Marxist party, the meeting noted.

The whole Party must put reform in a more prominent position and deepen reform in all respects with a focus on promoting Chinese modernization, the meeting said.

The meeting stressed that further deepening reform in all respects requires efforts to free the mind, liberate and develop social productive forces and unleash and enhance social vitality.

Further comprehensive reform should be led by a reform of the economic system, with advancing social equality and justice and improving people's well-being as both the starting point and the ultimate goal, and more focus should be put on system integration, addressing priorities and achieving concrete outcomes to provide a powerful driving force and institutional guarantees for Chinese modernization, the meeting added.

Noting that the economy has secured a good start this year, the meeting cautioned against challenges, such as insufficient demand, high operation pressure facing enterprises and an external environment that is more complicated, grimmer and more uncertain.

China's economy still has a solid foundation, plenty of advantages, strong resilience and huge potential, the meeting said, calling for efforts to strengthen confidence in economic work.

The country should front-load efforts to effectively put the established macro policies in place and well implement a proactive fiscal policy and a prudent monetary policy.

Ultra-long special treasury bonds should be issued early and used effectively, and the issuance and utilization of special-purpose bonds should be expedited.

It is necessary to flexibly employ policy tools such as interest rates and reserve requirement ratios to increase support for the real economy and reduce the society's overall financing cost, the meeting noted.

The meeting stressed the need to assess the consistency of macro policy orientation, advance large-scale equipment renewals and consumer goods trade-ins, introduce more consumption scenarios, promote people-centered new urbanization, and implement a new mechanism for cooperation between the government and private capital while fully stimulating private investment.

The meeting also called for efforts to develop new quality productive forces according to local conditions, cultivate and strengthen emerging industries, proactively plan and build future industries, make use of advanced technologies to empower the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, actively develop venture capital and strengthen patient capital.

The country should actively expand trade in intermediate goods, services, digital goods and cross-border e-commerce exports, support private enterprises in expanding overseas markets, and intensify efforts to attract and use foreign investment.

The meeting stressed continuously preventing and defusing risks in key areas.

It demanded research on policies to reduce housing inventory and improve the quality of newly added housing, noting that efforts should be pushed ahead to establish a new real estate sector model to promote its high-quality development.

The plan for local governments to resolve debt risks should be thoroughly implemented, ensuring that provinces, cities and counties with high debt risks not only effectively reduce their debt burden but maintain stable development as well, it said.

The meeting also called for efforts to solidly advance green and low-carbon development.

Efforts should be made to effectively improve people's livelihood, focus on the employment-first strategy and increase the income for middle- and low-income groups, it said.

It is necessary to consolidate and expand the achievements in poverty alleviation and advance rural revitalization across the board, said the meeting.

The meeting urged efforts to make greater breakthroughs in promoting the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta and better leverage its role as a pioneer, leader and driver of regional development.

It said efforts should center on integration and high quality when advancing major tasks of the regional development initiative.

It called for building innovation, industry and supply chains in a wider scope, breaking down administrative barriers, improving policy coordination and promoting deeper and wider integration.

The meeting underscored the importance of the region's taking the lead in aligning with high-standard international economic and trade rules and shaping new edges of a higher-level open economy.

Within the region, Shanghai should play a leading role. At the same time, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces should leverage their respective strengths to forge strong collaborative efforts and continue writing new chapters in the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta.

The meeting also studied other matters.
