BEIJING -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) has brought about an all-around improvement in Chinese people's lives over the past decade, according to a report submitted to the 20th CPC National Congress, which opened Sunday.

China's average life expectancy has reached 78.2 years, its per capita disposable annual income has risen to 35,100 yuan (about $4,938) from 16,500 yuan, and more than 13 million urban jobs have been created each year on average over the past 10 years, said the report.

China, which has built the largest education, social security, and healthcare systems in the world, has made historic strides in making education universally available, bringing 1.04 billion people under the coverage of basic old-age insurance, and ensuring basic medical insurance for 95 percent of the population.

More than 42 million housing units in run-down urban areas and more than 24 million dilapidated rural houses have been rebuilt, marking a significant improvement in housing conditions in both urban and rural areas, according to the report.

The number of internet users in the country has reached 1.03 billion, the report said.
