Communist Party of China sets agenda for five years (Roundup)October 18th, 2010 - 11:16 pm ICT by IANS
Beijing, Oct 18 (IANS) The ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) Monday vowed to make vigorous efforts to promote political restructuring and said measures would be taken to improve living standards across the country.
The decisions were taken at a meeting of the CPC central committee to determine the country’s development agenda for the next five years (2011-2015), Xinhua reported.
The central committee also approved the appointment of Vice President Xi Jinping, 57, as vice chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission, signalling that Xi is President Hu Jintao’s most likely successor when Hu retires as party leader in 2012.
The CPC said that China would continue opening wider to the outside world and accelerate the “going global” strategy.
Reform was “a powerful driving force” for accelerating the transformation of the economic development mode, the central committee said in a communique issued at the end of the four-day meeting.
Great impetus would be given to economic restructuring, while “vigorous yet steady” efforts should be made to promote political restructuring and more efforts should be made to speed up the promotion of cultural and social reforms, said the communique.
The party said China aimed to achieve major breakthroughs in economic restructuring and maintain stable and relatively fast economic growth.
“China will further boost people’s incomes, enhance social construction and deepen reform and opening-up,” the communique said.
That would facilitate “substantial progress in transforming the economic development pattern, and markedly promote China’s comprehensive national strength, international competitiveness and better shield against risks”, it said.
It would also help improve people’s lives and consolidate the basis of a well-off society, it said.
Wang Changjiang, of the party school of the CPC central committee, said “all-round reforms will be pushed forward simultaneously”, not just economic reforms that had continued steadily for more than three decades.
