|Chinese president calls for further modernization while maintaining stability|
Chinese President Hu Jintao Wednesday, Sept. 10 urged the country's senior officials to take the 60th anniversary of the founding of New China as a new start for carrying on its modernization drive while maintaining social stability.
Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks when presiding over the 16th group study of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, which was themed on understanding and practicing the socialist modernization since the founding of New China.
"Many important revelations come up when we look back on how the Party has led people on the path of socialist modernization," said Hu, stressing the importance of upholding economic development as the central task and promoting comprehensive and sustainable development.
Hu also stressed the study of the principle of "freeing our mind, seeking truth from facts, being united and looking ahead", which was put forward by late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping.
Hu said that policies regarding reform should be scientific and the methods of practicing these policies should be well-coordinated. Such reform policies should cover economy, politics, culture, society and various other aspects.
Hu emphasized on ensuring social stability while deepening reform.
"Without stability, nothing can be done and even those we have achieved will be lost. We should pay special attention to conflicts occurring among people and solve them properly," he said.
Various issues that affect social stability should be coped with carefully to ensure people's livelihood, Hu said.
