“The Communist Party of China combined the Marxist theory with practical situation in the country, establishing it as a guiding thought. The value we refer to is the one that is advocated by the Marxist ideology and combines China’s traditional value.”
The minister asked in an article last year to better explain China’s political theories and make those theories more accessible to students.
