The State Council Information Office is now holding a press conference to introduce the training and research work of China's Central Party School.

The establishment's executive vice president, Li Jingtian, will then answer questions by journalists from home and abroad. The Central Party School, located in Beijing, is the highest learning institution for Communist Party of China officials.

It has trained more than 50-thousand medium and high-ranking officials since 1978, when the country initiated its Reform and Opening Up Policy. All high-ranking Chinese officials, including provincial party chiefs, governors, ministers, and generals, as well as mid-level officials just taking up their posts, must receive training from this school.

Course lengths range from 3 months to 3 years. Fields of study include not only Marxism masterpieces and Party principles, but also Western political theory, economics, and frontier issues like contemporary law, religion, and military affairs, along with science and technology.
