BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- A senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has pressed government agencies, state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and universities for tangible work style improvements amid the Party's ongoing "mass-line" campaign.
Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks when hearing reports by representative ministries, SOEs and higher learning institutions on their respective execution of the campaign at a meeting on Friday.
Liu called for genuine changes in their work styles. For instance, ministries should stop feeling privileged and cut red-tape; SOEs should target their weak social responsibility and feeble awareness of providing social services; and universities and colleges should cleanse teaching and studying environments.
Liu also stressed that the campaign needs to go hand in hand with economic growth and restructuring.
Delivering reports at the meeting were representatives from the National Development and Reform Commission, the ministries of education, finance and human resources and social security, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions, the Agricultural Bank of China, China State Construction Engineering Corporation and Tianjin University.
Launched in June 2013, the "mass-line" campaign is aimed at making the government more accessible to the public, while cleaning up undesirable work styles -- formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance.
