Feb 26, 1965: CPC Central Committee and State Council decides to strengthen leadership over Third Front development in the southwest

On Feb 26, 1965, the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council made a decision about the system organization of the southwest's Third Front construction, establishing a committee to strengthen leadership over the Third Front development.

The Third Front (in simplified Chinese 三线) refers to a large-scale program China started in 1964 to build a range of industrial bases in its remote yet strategically secured hinterland in the southwest.

On March 29, 1965, the CPC Central Committee agreed to appoint Li Jingquan as director of the committee, with Cheng Zihua and Yan Xiufeng as deputy directors.
