CPC hails achievements over 90 years, highlights importance of development, stability

07-02-2011 12:58 BJT Special Report:Celebrating 90th Anniversary of the Founding of CPC |

BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao on Friday highlighted the importance of both development and stability, while hailing the achievements the Communist Party of China (CPC) has made over the past 90 years.

"To strike a balance between reform, development, and stability and achieve unity of the three is an important guideline for achieving overall success in China's socialist modernization," Hu Jintao, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said at a grand gathering marking the 90th founding anniversary of the CPC.

When summarizing the achievements the CPC has scored, Hu said the Communist Party of China (CPC) has accomplished three major events in the 90 years that reshaped the future and destiny of the Chinese people.

The first is the new-democratic revolution winning national independence and liberation of the people, Hu said.

The second is the socialist revolution and establishment of the basic socialist system. The third is the great new revolution of reform and opening up and the creation and development of socialism with Chinese characteristics, he said.

However, Hu noted that the CPC must not and will never rest on its laurels.

He pointed out the long-term, complicated and severe tests that the Party is facing. He said the Party should enhance Party building, continue to reform and maintain stability of the country.

TESTS AND DANGERS

When mentioning challenges faced by the CPC, President Hu said "We are facing long-term, complicated and severe tests in governing the country, in implementing reform and opening up and in developing the market economy, as well as tests in the external environment."

And the Party is confronted with the growing danger of lack of drive, incompetence, disconnect of the people, lack of initiative, and corruption. It has become even more important and urgent than ever before for the Party to police itself and impose strict discipline on its members, he said.

Some experts believe that the challenges, embodied in various aspects of China's current economic development and social management, pose "a full spectrum" of tests to the CPC's governance ability.

Regarding challenges in the market economy, Cai He, a labor expert from the Sun Yat-sen University, said industrial workers will inevitably seek constant wage increases with inflation on the rise, which, however, would likely cause difficulties for a large number of labor-intensive enterprises.

"The CPC needs to take into account the overall interests of the Chinese society. We understand the difficulty in meeting the requirements of both the workers and enterprises," Cai said.

Zhang Yubiao, an experienced village Party official in the southern city of Shenzhen, said the CPC works in a practical and innovative way which allows it to get through difficulties.
