Beijing has commanded that all Chinese companies have ‘Communist Party Units’. These groups are to be an integral part of all Chinese firms both public and private and are to ensure that everyone follows Beijing’s marching orders. (link below)
Of course these pillars of communist party thought are ever present on State Owned Enterprises. Even monstrous firms such as China’s largest bank ICBC, and Huawei have them as well. The bank has one as it’s essentially a financing arm of communism. Huawei has a slew of then because it is a spy arm for Beijing-allegedly. It thus makes perfect sense for them to keep apprised of all things communist.
