Selection and commentary on the front page of People’s Daily, December 16th 2019
1. Political theory magazine “Qiushi” published an important article of General Secretary Xi Jinping – “Promoting the formation of complementary advantages and quality development of regional economic layout”
The article pointed out that we should correctly comprehend the new situation in China’s regional economic development and that “strengthening the economic and population carrying capacity of the central cities and urban agglomerations with economic development advantages” meanwhile “enhancing the capacities of other regions to safeguard food security, ecological security, frontier security, and other aspects” is an important task of the Party.
Comments: Xi talks about his ideas on “new regional economic development” under the background of China’s economic crisis and fierce confrontations with the western world, does this mean that CCP is making preparations for final “decoupling”?
2. Unswervingly implementing the new concept of development—On study and implement of the spirit of the “Central Economic Work Conference”
The article states: “the whole party must deeply understand the importance and urgency of implementing the new development concept. The social contradictions in our country has transformed into the contradictions between the growing aspirations of the people for a better life and the imbalances of uneven development. China is in the decisive period of tackling the problems of changing the development mode, optimizing the economic structure and transforming the growth power”.
This article also encourages the CCP cadres to bear “a high degree of political responsibility and a sense of urgency to implement the new development concept” because in this way “we(the CCP) will be able to achieve the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way and promote the high-quality development of China’s economy as scheduled.”
Comment: Looks like the so-called “new development concept” is an excuse for China’s impending “economic and financial collapse” under CCP’s brutal rule.
3. Opinions issued by General Office of the CCP Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council: “To further create a good environment for education and teaching by reducing the burden on teachers in primary and secondary schools”
On December 15, the General Office of the CCP Central Committee and the General Office of the State Council issued “several opinions on alleviating the burden on primary and secondary school teachers to further create a good environment for education and teaching”, a notice was issued by asking all the local departments to conscientiously implement these “opinions” in practice.
The “Opinions” proposed that education is “the plan of the party”; meanwhile, it carries “the mission of training people for the party and preparing the talented and for the country” and it “shoulders the responsibility of cultivating socialist builders and successors”
Comments: The CCP has turned China’s education system into a “slave training center”, how sad is that!
4. Overview of economic development on 20th anniversary of Macao’s return to the motherland
The article points out that Macao has become one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and one of the regions with the highest per capita GDP. The article also pointed out that with the carry-out of Pan-Pearl River Delta region Cooperation, jointly building of “Belt and Road Initiative” and the strategy of the construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area; Macao would usher in more opportunities for development and a better future.
Comments: in 2017/18, Macao’s Gini coefficient climbed up to 0.4, which is relatively high. This indicates that economic development without Freedom and democracy shall never be long-lasting meanwhile the wealth created in a society shall be mostly taken away by kleptocrats
5. Chinese Brand and Chinese Stories Series: JD utilized its platform to help people from poor areas to increase their incomes—example of “precision poverty alleviation” through internet
The article reported that the Chinese internet giant, “JD” has made contributions to China’s poverty alleviation program by helping local people in poor areas to sell their agricultural and sideline products on their platform.
Comments: Chinese internet giants have bend knees to CCP, they are doing everything to please CCP, from “poverty alleviation” to “visiting the cradle of CCP—Jing Gangshan”. However, in the eyes of CCP Kleptocrats, they are nothing, but “surrogates” of their wealth.
