The Secretariat of the Communist Party of China Central Committee is the permanent bureaucracy of the Communist Party of China and forms a parallel structure to state organizations in the People's Republic of China.

The most important role of the Secretariat involves making personnel decisions in both the party and state (but not the military).

The Secretariat manages the work of the Central Politburo and its Standing Committee, headed by the General Secretary. Also, the Secretariat is involved in coordination of the party structure. It has authority in the Communist Party of China, but does not have policy-making influence. The Politburo and its Standing Committee can elect or appoint officials in the Secretariat.
