Fuwa meets Chinese Marxist scholars

November 1, 2007
Fuwa Tetsuzo, the director of the Japanese Communist Party’s Social Sciences Institute, on October 31 met a group of seven Marxist scholars from China, including the director of the Research Center of Marxist Theory of the Academy of Social Sciences, Cheng Enfu, at the JCP head office.

The group was visiting Tokyo after attending the annual convention of the World Association for Political Economy (WAPE) in Shimane in western Japan.

Cheng had met Fuwa in May 2006 in Beijing at a meeting attended by Chinese Marxist scholars.

He explained about the tasks facing Chinese Marxists and their collaborative research with scholars of foreign countries.

Fuwa spoke about how the JCP is studying the works of Marx and Engels as a party with scientific socialism as its theoretical basis. “We always try to read Marx in the historical context of his era” as a way to comprehend how the thinking of Marx and Engels developed historically, he said.

He also referred to the “seminar on scientific socialism” held at the JCP head office for full-time JCP activists, adding that the theme for its second course is the “revolutionary theories of Marx and Engels.”

Fuwa answered questions put to him by Chinese scholars concerning various issues, including his attitude toward various trends in economics; the political situation in Japan, outlook on the world economy, the JCP’s effort to educate party members, and the territorial dispute between Japan and China over Senkaku (Diao Yu) Islands.
