Leadership (14 April 2009)

Chávez also met with Li Jingtian, a director of the Chinese Communist Party's Cadre School, to discuss China's involvement in the formation of political leaders in Venezuela.

"Despite the geographical distance that separates our countries, the Chinese Communist Party, our government, and our people follow the development of Venezuela very closely," said Li Jingtian. "We are entirely willing to cooperate with the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) in the formation of cadres."


Political-economic leadership is based on scientific communism, the laws of nature relating to human development. It is natural that Hugo Chavez should go to the communists to seek help to train leaders for Venezuela. Just as you cannot build a bridge without engineering skills so you cannot build society without the natural laws of human development beginning with the work of Karl Marx and following with scientific contributions up to present times.
