Looking beyond The Party

A circular, rather like a white paper in the UK, points to a policy goal. The most recent one in China seems out of character. It's rather like accepting entrepreneurs as members of the Communist Party, which, of course, is normal these days.

Senior Chinese leader calls for cultivating non-communist talents
A senior leader… called for fully implementing a circular designed for finding and training talented individuals from outside of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).

Jia Qinglin, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), and a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau [Politburo] of CPC Central Committee, made the remark during a nationwide video conference in which he explained the contents of the circular.

In the circular… the CPC Central Committee called for more efforts to find and train talented people from outside of the Party in order to achieve long-term solidarity and stability.

The circular included detailed suggestions for finding and selecting non-communist talents based on comprehensive assessments, as well as a call for perfecting the mechanism for choosing and appointing talented individuals.

Jia said that the circular is a milestone in the Party's history and will serve as a guideline for the cultivation of talented non-communists.

He called for finding and training non-communist talents in all fields of society, as well as providing training and political education for them.

Jia urged authorities at all levels to regard the implementation of the circular as an "important task."
