China needs the strong, unified leadership of the Communist Party or the country will “crumble”, policy paper says

Share

Chinese government said in a policy paper released on Friday ahead of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic that China needs the strong, unified leadership of the Communist Party or the country will “crumble”.

“China is huge in size, has complex national conditions, and its governance difficulties are rarely seen. Without a unified and strong leadership force, China will move toward division and crumble, bringing disaster to the world,” the paper said.

President Xi Jinping has further tightened party rule and cracked down on those who may challenge authority since taking office in late 2012.

“The Chinese people do not have it in their genes to invade others or dominate the world. In modern times, China has been bullied by the Great Powers, war and turmoil have left a deep impression with the suffering caused; China will never impose the sufferings it has been through on other peoples.”

The 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China takes place at a rather troubled moment in Chinese politics, due to uncertainties derived from the trade war with the United States, uncertain economic growth, and the turbulent situation in Hong Kong.

“The threat of trade wars and the continued increase in tariffs are not conducive to solving problems,” it said, in reference to its trade disputes with Washington.

“China is a mature economy with a complete industrial system, complete industrial chain, broad market space and strong economic development momentum. It will never be weakened by trade wars. […] China is confident that it has the ability to face difficulties, turn crises into opportunities, and open up a new world. […] The United States cannot control China, and it is even more unlikely to stop China’s development. Curbing and suppressing other countries and transferring domestic contradictions abroad will not keep the United States strong.”
