He emphasized the importance of combing comprehensive Party leadership with the improvement of university governance system in the progress of culture construction, as well as integrating a good administration of internal affairs with the optimization of external environment.
Secondly, led by the political construction of the Party, we should firmly promote Party work in all aspects so as to provide a strong ideological guarantee for the construction of high-level university.
