March 14, 2011

The 10-day annual meeting of the Fourth Session of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) completed all items on the agenda and came to a victorious close on Sunday, March 13. The People’s Daily, the leading national newspaper in China, has published on Monday an editorial to mark the occasion and its excerpts read as follows:

Titled "Jointly Write a Splendid Chapter on Scientific Development", the editorial cites the just-concluded CPPCC annual meeting as a conference of vital importance, which has made new, eminent achievements.  During the conference, Chinese President Hu Jintao and other Party and state leaders called on CPPCC National Committee members and respectively joined their panel discussions in mulling or deliberating national affairs together.

The editorial hails the attainments of the political advisory body in 2010, saying that the CPPCC National Committee and its members had made vital contributions when the country grappled with various challenges to boost sound and fast social and economic development.  "We must be more willing or ready to uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), unswervingly keep to the political development path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and continue to push forward the cause of the CPPCC," it said.

On Premier Wen Jiabao’s Report on the Work of the Government", the CPPCC members referred to it as a report of confidence building, and of great inspiration and cohesion.  The members are unanimous in the view that the 12th Five-Year Plan maps out the blueprint for the next five years (2011-2015), reflects China’s ongoing reform and development trend, and is a solemn commitment the CPC Central Commitment and the Chinese government has made to the people of all ethnicities across China.

During the CPPCC annual session, more than 2,000 CPPCC members have carried out to the full their functions of political consultation, democratic supervision and participation in deliberation and administration of state affairs in the economic and social development. And this has displayed the vis and vigor of the CPPCC organization and its democratic functions.

With respect to the 12th Five-Year Plan period, CPPCC National Committee members have carried out assiduously and conscientiously the major policy decisions made by the Party Central Committee, adhere to the two themes of "national unity and democracy", and contributed positively in an effort to do good, happy things and coping with tough, difficult issues.

CPPCC National Committee members have, imbued with a high sense of responsibility, the Chinese nation and its people, been implementing its function of going on to perform the political consultation, democratic supervision and of deliberating state affairs; they have put forward proposals on optimizing the economic structure, taming inflation and other major issues in socio-economic development. This has displayed strong vitality of the CPPCC political organization and its democratic form with Chinese features.

Multi-party cooperation and political consultative system led by CPC, deep-rooted in the soil of survival and development of the Chinese nation and is developing or reinforcing the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics and, it has salient features and a unique Chinese style.  Vivid practices over the past six decades or so have given an eloquent proof of its infinite vitality.  We should adhere to CPC leadership, persevere in taking the political road of developing socialism with Chinese features and kept opening up the new situation in the cause of the CPPCC.

The 2011-2015 period is very crucial for China to further deepen the reform and opening up drive while accelerating the transformation of its economic growth pattern.  To do a good job in every aspect in 2011 means a good beginning for the 12th Five-Year Plan period with a great and far-reaching significance.

Meanwhile, the National Committee of the CPPCC should, with an eye focusing on the work for the reunification of the motherland and national revival, ensure optimizing contacts and unity with Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots, working to deepen friendship with people of all other nations, keeping up friendship ties with people overseas, raising its capability and enhancing the self-development of the CPPCC.

Carrying the expectations of more than 1.3 billion people living in China, its "modernization" vessel is riding the winds and cleaving the waves.  With an upbeat spirit and truth-seeking approach, the Chinese people, rallying round the CPC Central Committee with Hu Jintao as the General Secretary, have undertaken to write a new, splendid chapter, work hard to create a happy, contended life and strive for the splendid future for the Chinese nation’s great rejuvenation.
