Stressing that the two associations should resolutely uphold the CPC leadership and socialism, Wang noted that the associations should also educate and guide the religious figures and believers to firmly build national, legal and civic awareness.

Wang also said he hoped that the two associations would pay more attention to training religious personnel while consciously guarding against the negative influence of commercialization.
