Wu Bangguo urges advancing socialism with Chinese characteristics

Wu Bangguo on Thursday called on members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) to advance the great cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics in an all-around way at the new starting point of history.

Wu made the remarks while joining a panel discussion with Party delegates about Hu Jintao’s report delivered to the 18th CPC National Congress Thursday morning.

Hu’s report is the guideline for China to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects, Wu told the delegates from east China’s Anhui Province.

Wu said China is faced with unprecedented opportunities and challenges, and CPC members must be profoundly aware of the new changes taking place in the conditions of the world, the nation and the Party.

“We must unswervingly adhere to and develop the socialism with Chinese characteristics,” he said.

He also underlined the significance of the Scientific Outlook on Development at the new starting point of history.

“Together with Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important thought of Three Represents, the Scientific Outlook on Development is the theoretical guidance the Party must adhere to for a long time,” he said.

“The Scientific Outlook on Development has a very importance meaning for the future development of the Party and the nation, and will surely become a powerful theoretical weapon in the building of socialism with Chinese characteristics,” he said.
