BEIJING, July 8 (Xinhua) -- China's military joined Communist Party of China (CPC) and government officials across the country in a campaign against harmful work styles at a high-profile meeting that concluded on Monday.

During a meeting presided over by Central Military Commission (CMC) Chairman Xi Jinping, CMC members were briefed on the implementation of an "eight-point" regulation that the CPC leadership began promoting in December in order to ban extravagance and formalism.

Senior military officers also examined their own conduct to verify whether they have complied with efforts to eliminate bureaucratism and formalism, as well as discussed ways to improve their work styles.

Xi, who is also president of China and general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and other CMC members conducted in-depth discussions and offered good proposals, according to a statement issued after the meeting.

Meeting attendees decided to improve work styles using a top-to-bottom approach and CMC members will take the lead, it said.

It is important to make the campaign a regular and long-term task and the military must be perseverant in this regard, the statement said.

The primary task will be to raise the armed forces' combat capacity, meeting attendees agree.

Senior officers, especially high-ranking ones, will be asked to focus on self-purification, self-perfection, self-renewal and self-progression.

The officers should make concrete progress in tackling problems and advancing their work, the statement said.

Xi said the results of efforts to improve work styles must be embodied by the military's ability to fulfill its duties, according to the statement.

He said China faces a complicated security situation both at home and abroad, as well as has a heavy task in boosting combat readiness.

The development of the military has witnessed profound changes, with increasing risks and challenges ahead, Xi said.

"Carrying defense development forward and building a strong military remain a historical test for the CMC's strategic thinking, leadership, commanding ability and work styles," he said.
