From its founding in 1921, generations of the Communist Party of China (CPC) have merged their youth and enthusiasm into the torrent of ideals and beliefs to promote the awakening and rise of a nation and lead the development and progress of a country.
A hundred years later, the pace of progress has never stopped and the glory of the CPC continues. What are the genes and forces that enable this century-old party to remain vibrant and youthful forever?
We invited six renowned scholars from home and abroad to interpret the sources of this vitality.
John Ross, senior fellow at Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China, believes that the organization of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is the backbone of China's success.
"There's no individual who has a correct view of the world", said Ross, adding that China creates a party system whereby there is a collective discussion so that it forms a much better view of the situation of the world.
