Wang emphasized that strengthening the historical learning and education is an important political task for all BFU Party Committees at all levels. Since the 18th CPC National Congress, General Secretary Xi Jinping has made statements on many occasions attaching great importance to learning the history of the Party, New China, reform and opening up, and socialism. It should be a compulsory course and a prerequisite for our party and country to forge ahead. This Sanming revolutionary stories report serves as our concrete actions to implement Xi Jinping’s thoughts. Secretary Wang hoped that teachers and students can integrate the history learning into the whole process of their teaching and learning. Through learning and practicing, teachers and students can strengthen their belief in education and shoulder their due responsibilities. He believed that as people can always keep history in their mind and stay true to their original heart, they will certainly better serve our party and country with an even greater contribution and facilitate the development of a green and beautiful China in the new era.
At the conference, Lin Shantao, Director of the Party History and Local Chronicles Research Office of Sanming Party Committee, delivered a speech of “Sanming: the Central Soviet Area with Red Flags Fluttering in the Wind” and introduced the history and the status of Sanming Soviet Area (Central Revolutionary Base Area) as well as its contributions and sacrifices to the Chinese revolution.
