Leadership development with an ethnic focus March 16, 2018



Leadership development with an ethnic focus

Proactive measures to train and select officials from minority ethnic groups have always been an important part of the CPC’s leadership development plan and ethnic affairs policy. These measures help promote ethnic unity, stability at the national level, and economic and social progress in ethnic areas. They are also key to the exercise of autonomy in those areas. With a better understanding of the expectations and aspirations of their own communities and local conditions, officials from minority backgrounds can be effective community motivators and organizers. They are critical to the execution of the ethnic policies of the CPC and the state in local areas.
