Education was the cornerstone of national rejuvenation and social progress, and the basic means to improve all-round development of individuals, Hu said during the conference.

Strategic priority should be given to education in the work of the Party and the country, he said, adding that financing and public resources should be allocated in favor of education and human resources development.

He also urged authorities to focus on the quality of education, and called for efforts to put together a contingent of noble, enthusiastic and high-quality teachers.
