Li Changchun on Thursday called on members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) to take the socialist path of promoting cultural advance with Chinese characteristics and strive to develop a strong socialist culture in China.
Hu's report summarized the achievements scored in the past five years
and the course over the past decade, Li said to the delegates from
southwest China's Sichuan Province.
The report set forth a series of important theoretical and practical
issues on how to uphold and build socialism with Chinese
characteristics, Li said.
"We should stick to the socialist path of promoting cultural advance
with Chinese characteristics, with pushing scientific development as the
theme, promoting core socialist values as the fundamental task,
satisfying people's spiritual and cultural needs as the objective, and
taking reform and innovation as the drive, so as to build a strong
socialist culture in China," he said.
Since the 16th CPC National Congress, the CPC Central Committee has
made important decisions on deepening reform of the cultural system.
Cultural construction has reached a new stage and a socialist path of
promoting cultural advance with Chinese characteristics has been
developed, he said.
"This road clearly answers the strategic question about in which
direction China's cultural reform will go and at which goal the reform
will be aimed in new historical conditions, and is an important
component of the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics," Li
