Hu Jintao

From dKosopedia

Hu Jintao holds the three major political positions in the People's Republic of China (PRC): President of the People's Republic of China, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and Chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission. These three positions mean he is at apex of the state, party and military. He represents the fourth generation of leaders in the People's Republic of China since it was established in 1949. Hu is seen by many as the ultimate insider in Chinese politics--someone completely indoctrinated by the Chinese educational system who never studied overseas and afterward never took any risks that might endanger his career--and may not understand politics outside China or East Asia well.

Eight Virtues

On Wednesday, March 15, Hu Jin Tao released a list of basic virtues at the meeting of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Love, do not harm the motherland.
Serve, don't disserve the people.
Uphold science; don't be ignorant and unenlightened.
Work hard; don't be lazy and hate work.
Be united and help each other; don't gain benefits at the expense of others.
Be honest and trustworthy, not profit-mongering at the expense of your values.
Be disciplined and law-abiding instead of chaotic and lawless.
Know plain living and hard struggle, do not wallow in luxuries and pleasures.


Hu Jintao was born in December 1942 in Jixi, Anhui Province and joined the Communist Party of China in April 1964 and began to work in July 1965 after he graduated from the Water Conservancy Engineering Department of Tsinghua University where he had a majored in hub hydropower stations. Hu and his wife Liu Yongqing were schoolmates at Qinghua University. The couple have a son and a daughter, who are also graduates of Qinghua University.

He trains and works as an engineer, and as a politician. Hu worked at the grassroots level in Gansu Province in 1968 until 1982 when he was selected to be a member of the Secretariat of the Communist Youth League of China Central Committee and president of the All-China Youth Federation. He was appointed, successively, secretary of the CPC Guizhou Provincial Committee and of the CPC Tibet Autonomous Regional Committee in 1985, although it is believed that he spent less time in that high altitude environment than in Beijing.
