In the speech, Wang Yaqin expounded on the meaning and function of the Constitution and gave a comprehensive history of China’s Constitution and current constitutional revisions. A detailed explanation on how to strengthen the implementation of the Constitution was given.
As presiding over the meeting, Wu Yingjie pointed out that the Constitution is the fundamental law of the country and the general method by which to ensure national security.

Wu Yingjie said that these constitutional amendments establish a guiding position for the Xi Jinping Thought of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era in China’s political and social life, and incorporate the Thought into the Constitution is a major reform measure to improve the socialist political system with Chinese characteristics, and a major political plan to uphold the authority of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core.
Wu Yingjie also pointed out that efforts should be made to strengthen constitutional study, by utilizing schools and training platforms at all levels to increase the intensity of disseminating knowledge of laws, vigorously publicize the law, deepen interpretations of the law, and create an atmosphere wherein the spirit of the Constitution has a real impact on people and strikes into people’s hearts.
In addition, it is necessary to strengthen the implementation of the Constitution, especially in Tibet, and to study and formulate laws that safeguard social stability, oppose separatism, and strengthen national unity within the framework of the Constitution.
