  "In the past five years,’ Rongcheng Tongxin’ has built a new platform, explored new paths and injected new kinetic energy for the construction of participating parties in the new era in Sichuan Province, and has become a beautiful brand of multi-party cooperation in Chengdu and even the whole province." Chen Wu, deputy director of the United Front Work Department of Sichuan Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, spoke highly of the achievements of the practical work exchange meeting of "Chengdu Concentric".

  After five years of hard work, spring flowers and autumn fruits are fruitful. Since 2019, the "Chengdu United Front Work Department" practical work exchange meeting hosted by Chengdu Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China and undertaken by Chengdu-level democratic parties and municipal social institutes has continuously focused on the "five constructions" of democratic parties. Through a series of activities such as theme essay-writing activities, theme project selection of "Chengdu Xingli" and theme exchange meetings, it has become an important exchange platform for the United front work brand and party work in Chengdu, and a window for grassroots United front work to show its unique innovations and highlights.

  Brand influence with high temperature is increasing year by year.

  "Democratic parties should keep pace with the times and promote their own construction in an overall way, build a more scientific and efficient institutional system that is more suitable for the development status quo to improve their own construction level, show a new atmosphere of multi-party cooperation, and add help to building a socialist modernization power in an all-round way and comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with Chinese modernization." On the stage, Liu Jiaqiang, Vice Chairman of the Central Committee of the Chinese Revolutionary Committee, gave a splendid keynote speech. Under the stage, nearly 300 members of the Chengdu United Front listened attentively.

  This is the second time that Liu Jiaqiang has given lectures at the practical work exchange meeting of "Chengdu Concentric". Every year, the practical work exchange meeting of "Chengdu Concentric" invites the central leaders of democratic parties and relevant experts and scholars to make reports and share around their own fields to help the participants further increase their new knowledge and broaden their horizons.

  If the expert teaching reflects the theoretical height of the exchange meeting, then the exchange of speeches and the sharing of Chengdu United front practitioners represent the grassroots temperature. At this year’s exchange meeting, party member Liu Yajing, jianyang city branch of Chengdu Municipal Committee of Chinese Revolutionary Committee, Peng Yilan, director of Chengdu Municipal Committee of Zhi Gong Dang, and Cao Ligang, vice chairman of Chengdu University of Technology Committee of Jiu San Society, shared their thoughts and opinions around the system construction.

  In the past five years, the "Chengdu Concentric" practical work exchange meeting has become a platform for in-depth discussion and exchange among the democratic parties in Chengdu. Through exchanges, we will explore and solve theoretical and practical problems in the self-construction and function of grass-roots organizations of democratic parties, and promote mutual learning and common improvement.

  "The exchange meeting provides a reference, reference and replicable experience for the democratic parties’ own construction." The relevant person in charge of the Party Department of the United Front Work Department of the Chengdu Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China said that the holding of the "Chengdu Concentric" practical work exchange meeting has promoted Chengdu to improve more than 100 institutional mechanisms such as ideological and political guidance of democratic parties, participation in and discussion of state affairs, deliberation and resolution, and training of representatives, and promoted the establishment of 122 "homes for party members".

  With the exchange meeting getting better and better, the brand influence of "Rongcheng Tongxin" is also increasing year by year. "In recent years, the theme essay-writing activities have won the active participation of United front departments and party members in other provinces and cities such as Chongqing, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangsu and Jiangxi. At the same time, the online and offline participation scope and number of participants of the exchange meeting are also increasing year by year. " The relevant person in charge of the Party Department of the United Front Work Department of the Chengdu Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China said.
