What tasks will the Xi Jinping era fulfill? Most Chinese and the international community can easily find the answer from his "Four Comprehensives" political theory.

The theory was first raised by General Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPC Xi Jinping during his trip to Jiangsu Province in December last year and got an authoritative interpretation by State-run media recently. The "Four Comprehensives" includes comprehensively building a moderately prosperous society, deepening reform, advancing the rule of law and strictly strengthening Party discipline.

The four concepts were mentioned by the previous leadership of the central committee of the CPC. But it is a historical move to advocate them all together in a comprehensive way. It is unprecedented and a strategic leap forward. It is always difficult to make a good start, and even more difficult to carry it through to the end. The word "comprehensive" is a serious commitment to China's strategic blueprint.

The "Four Comprehensives" is a major breakthrough in political theories. It does not come out of nothing. Rather, it has a profound practical basis. Without the promotion of a series of governance theories since the 18th National Congress of the CPC or the groundwork of the third and the fourth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, there wouldn't be any theoretical breakthrough like the "Four Comprehensives." Ordinary Chinese can also easily understand the connection between this political theory and the country's reality.

Comprehensively building a moderately prosperous society is the main aim, and the latter three are means to realize this goal. This enhances people's new understanding of a moderately prosperous society. In the past, such a society was built on material wealth, as people understood it, but nowadays people also call for justice, the rule of law and clean governance. The "Four Comprehensives" gives a new definition to the "moderately prosperous society," which also imposes pressure on the ruling party.

A governance blueprint that is understood and supported by all people in the nation is full of vitality. The "Four Comprehensives" features profoundness, preciseness and plainness, reflecting Xi's consistent style of governance.

The implementation of the "Four Comprehensives" is highly convincing because the central committee of the CPC is pushing the country toward this direction. This is not an empty slogan uttered by politicians out of political purpose. All the Chinese people are experiencing this trend. Talk about the rule of law and strictly strengthening Party discipline at a time when many corrupt officials have been held responsible is different from the same language a few years ago.

The "Four Comprehensives" is the fundamental understanding of China's reform strategies at the current stage and in the near future. The public has expected it to be included in the charter of the CPC. It proves that this political theory corresponds to China's reality and has won people's hearts.
