FUZHOU (Xinhua) — Liu Yunshan, a senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has urged Party cadres at the grassroots level to do more in serving the people and advancing reform and development.
Liu, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks during an inspection in southeast China’s Fujian Province from Thursday to Saturday.
Liu visited various villages, communities and enterprises to learn about the progress made in the Party building at the grassroots level, where he asked the CPC members to learn from the example of Liao Junbo, a late official who had served in Fujian.
The CPC Central Committee on Tuesday decided to posthumously honor Liao as an “outstanding CPC member.” Liao died at the age of 48 in a traffic accident while heading to a meeting on March 18.
A statement of the CPC central leadership noted that Liao, vice mayor of Nanping City in Fujian, had worked wholeheartedly to lead local cadres and people in poverty-relief work, showing his loyalty to the Party and selfless devotion to duty.
Liao had also served as Party chief of Fujian’s Zhenghe County, where he pushed forward economic development that eventually helped more than 30,000 people shake off poverty within less than four years.
During the inspection tour, Liu held a seminar with some officials in Zhenghe county to discuss how to learn from Liao to better serve the people.
