July 1 this year marks the 99th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China(CPC). From a little over 50 party members at the beginning of its establishment to the world’s largest political party, how has the CPC risen from a series of setbacks and moved forward? After almost a hundred years of vicissitudes, how has the CPC been able to keep its vigor and vitality? In this article, we will revisit the words of CPC leader Xi Jinping on the Party’s original mission and its responsibilities.

Xi Jinping said the people hate corruption the most, and corruption is the biggest threat the Party faces. He emphasized that the CPC must treat both the symptoms and root causes of corruption and fight it with tenacity and persistence to ensure the long-term stability of the party and the country.

CGTN Welcomes Ofcom’s Recognition of its Right to Broadcast in UK
China Global Television Network (CGTN) on Saturday welcomed the acknowledgement of the British media regulator that CGTN’s right to broadcast in Europe falls under French jurisdiction, which paves the way for its return to broadcasting in the UK after being taken off the air there two months ago.
The Office of Communications (Ofcom) of the United Kingdom on Friday said that it recognized that CGTN’s operations in Europe are in French jurisdiction, according to the Financial Times, which under the European Convention on Transfrontier Television, to which the UK is a signatory, allows it to resume airing programs in the country.
CGTN said on Saturday it is in contact with its broadcast licensee to verify the relevant information.
“We applaud and welcome the UK regulatory authorities’ return to objectivity and impartiality,” said CGTN via a spokesperson.
“As a professional international media organization, CGTN reports the world in an objective, fair and balanced manner and promote exchanges among people of all countries and regions. CGTN always respects and abides by the laws and regulations of the countries and regions where we operate,” added the spokesperson.
On February 4, 2021, Ofcom pulled CGTN off British airwaves after 18 years of services in the country, following an investigation into the broadcasting license of the outlet. CGTN has maintained that it “complies with the laws and regulations of every country” and expressed disappointment in the ruling that was “based on the so-called political nature of CGTN and related Chinese media organizations.”
