BEIJING, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on Thursday released a key publication on the Party's mission and contributions.
The document, titled "The CPC: Its Mission and Contributions," stressed that over the past hundred years, all the struggles, sacrifices and efforts made by the CPC and by the Chinese people under its leadership have been directed to one goal -- the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
It added that "achieving national rejuvenation is the historic mission of the CPC," and the Party "has made an unbreakable commitment to bring the people a happy life."

The CPC pursues the lofty goal of working for the wellbeing of the Chinese people, and it does everything in the interests of the people, the document said.
The document said that Marxism is the single guiding ideology, the very soul of the CPC, and the banner under which it strives.
According to the document, in order to achieve independence, development, and prosperity, the CPC must have robust and decisive leadership.
"It is the CPC's solidarity and unity, its firm leadership, and its strong governance capability that have rallied and united hundreds of millions of the Chinese people and overcome a multitude of difficulties and crises," it said.
Also, the document said the CPC has always been able to maintain vigor and vitality and stand at the forefront of the times despite the many hardships it has endured in the past hundred years.
This is because the Party has constantly engaged in significant self-reform while leading the people in a great social revolution. To maintain its health and vigor, the CPC exercises effective self-supervision, practices strict self-discipline in every respect, consistently pursues improvement, and advances with the times, the document said.
Moreover, it stressed that the CPC is a political party that seeks happiness for the people and progress for humanity. The CPC has always pursued the shared human values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy and freedom. It has championed internationalism, stood on the right side of history and the progressive side of humanity, and contributed to world peace and development.
At a press conference Thursday, Wang Xiaohui, deputy head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, said the document expounds the idea, practices and achievements of the CPC's governance in China, shedding light on the issue about where the CPC comes from and where it is heading.
The document, which includes a preamble, a conclusion and five chapters, gives the answer about what kind of political party the CPC is, Wang said.
