BEIJING, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese political advisor Jia Qinglin Wednesday urged non-communist party personages to enhance their understanding of the socialist core value system.
Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the remarks in written comments for a video and telephone conference Wednesday in Beijing, which calls on non-Party personages to better understand and support the campaign.
The concept of "socialist core value system" was publicized for the first time at the Sixth Plenum of the 16th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee in 2006, at which the CPC highlighted the importance of creating a "socialist harmonious society."
The Party explained the value system should consist of Marxism, socialism with Chinese characteristics, patriotism, the spirit of reform and innovation and the socialist sense of honor and disgrace.
In his written comments, Jia expressed hope the non-Party personages can strengthen their faith in the leadership of the CPC and the development path of socialism with Chinese characteristics.
Du Qinglin, head of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee, said at the meeting that concept learning must be an important task for non-Party personages now and in the future.
