Regions map out plans to maintain nationwide stability


Provincial-level regions in China have vowed to maintain local stability during the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which will open in Beijing on October 18.

On Wednesday, government and Party officials from East China's Jiangsu Province held a conference vowing to safeguard stability during the congress. Similar conferences have been taking place around China for the past month. 

Northeast China's Jilin Province held a conference on Saturday, vowing to strengthen border  control and to crack down on any domestic or overseas trouble-making activities, newspaper Jilin Daily reported.

Jilin shares a border with North Korea, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on September 3.

On Sunday a conference themed with studying and arranging stability maintenance in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region said the success of the 19th National Congress is the most significant political task currently.

The region should "insist on the direction of religious sinicization, and firmly crack down on illegal acts that undermine the unity of the country and that between ethnic groups, or that promote violent and terrorist activities by using the Internet," the Tibet Daily reported.

The Tibet conference also demanded departments of the regional government to make full efforts to prepare for monitoring and inspections from the central government on its work to maintain stability in the region.

On Monday, 2,000 police officers in Zhengzhou, Central China's Henan Province, vowed in a drill to complete the task of keeping social stability during the congress.

The standing committee of East China's Fujian Province held a meeting on September 22, pledging to complete the work of security and stability maintenance during the congress, as well as the work to promote and study the spirit of the congress, the Beijing Youth Daily reported Thursday.

Fujian Province said it would upgrade the security work from the BRICS Xiamen Summit, which was held in early September in its port city of Xiamen. Technologies such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence will be used to manage their work.

Cai Qi, Secretary of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee, on September 12 demanded the city to firmly complete the security work for the 19th National Congress "to the highest standard, with the strongest organization, by the most practical measures and the best mode," the Beijing Daily reported.
