    CHINA

    The Party's Central Committee gives last touches to preparation for congressional meetings and praise for Xi Jinping

    Wang Zhicheng

    There is a report of the work done in five years, the amendment to the Constitution to include Xi Jinping's thought; a report on disciplinary inspections. China's economic successes over the past five years also published.

    Beijing (AsiaNews) - This morning saw the 7th plenary session of the 18th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCPCC). It should give the last touches to speeches, reports and choices that will be presented during the forthcoming 19th National Congress of the Party, scheduled for October 18th.

    According to Xinhua, CCPCC will discuss the draft report of the Commission for Disciplinary Inspections on the work done during these five years and a draft for the change of the Party Constitution.

    The state agency announces that the drafts collect "opinions" of "certain groups of people" and "opinions and suggestions" of new delegates at the 19 th Congress. It should celebrate the way China is reaching "a moderately prosperous society" and a "socialist development with Chinese characteristics".

    With emphasis, Xinhua asserts that the Congress "will summarize historical progress and valuable experiences in maintaining and advancing socialism with Chinese characteristics acquired under CCPCC leadership with Xi Jinping as its heart, joining and guiding the people [formed] by all ethnic groups".

    Xinhua adds that the Congress "will examine the current international and national situation and will draw the tracks and policies to respond to the urgency of the times."

    Beyond everything, everyone's eyes are focused on how much power Xi Jinping can count on.

    In October, the Party called Xi "the core" of leadership, enhancing his position. In all likelihood the Constitution will be amended to include some reference to Xi Jinping's thought as a guiding principle. This will put Xi on par with the other leaders of the past: Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao.

    In preparation for the Congress, the National Statistics Bureau yesterday issued a series of "successes" pulled off by China (and Xi) from the 18th Congress to date: an average GDP growth of 7.2%; the creation of more than 13 million jobs a year; increased research and development expenditure by 52.2%; pollution decreased by 6%; an increase of 7.3% per annum of income; reduced poverty by 50%.

    Rohingya not only group persecuted in Myanmar, Christian minorities are as well



    Ethnic Kachin, Chin and Naga endure suffering. Religious discrimination is in some cases even institutionalised. Christians are seen as the expression of a foreign religion, outside of the nationalist view. For years the military regime has applied stringent discriminatory measures.

    The world is in urgent need of the Church's mission

    Bernardo Cervellera

    October is a month devoted to awakening the call to mission among Christians. In the world there is indifference or enmity towards God and the Church. Religions are considered the source of all wars. Christianity is the encounter with a Person who changes the life of the believer and places him at the service of the wounds of the world, torn by frustrations and fratricidal wars. The example of the Patriarch of Baghdad and of the President of South Korea.
