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.
One 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.
Zheng Yongnian, founding director of the Advanced Institute of Global and Contemporary China Studies, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, shared his insights into the codes of CPC's success, which, in his view, includes serving the people as the mission, an advanced meritocracy and experienced leaders.
