What is the superior virtue of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics? This intriguing question has been first clearly answered by the decision of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Party Congress though concluding 13 institutional advantages of China’s socialism. It is then noteworthy to ask what are the specific manifestations of the institutional supremacy? How could it be transformed to greater governance performance? And how can China fully actualise the “Two Centenary Goals” by utilising the institutional advantage? A deeper understanding of the regular patterns of the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the socialist system, and human development, can strengthen our self-awareness and confidence in socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the state national governance system. This lecture will expound the key message voiced by the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Party Congress.
