Chinese President Xi Jinping called for strengthening ideological and political education in universities and charged Communist Party of China officials with prioritizing their work in this area, according to an account of a speech he gave at a two-day meeting on “ideological and political work in China's universities and colleges” published in the state-run media outlet Xinhua.
“China's higher education institutions are under the leadership of the CPC and are socialist colleges with Chinese characteristics, so higher education must be guided by Marxism, and the party's policies in education must be fully carried out,” Xi is quoted as saying.
