BEIJING - The Communist Party of China (CPC) will make "vigorous yet steady" efforts to promote political restructuring in next five years, said a communique issued by the fifth plenum of the 17th CPC Central Committee.

The communique said that reform was a powerful driving force for accelerating the transformation of the economic development mode.

Reform in every realm must be comprehensively pushed forward with more resolution and encouragement.

"Great impetus would be given to economic restructuring, while vigorous yet steady efforts should be made to promote political restructuring," said the communique.

It also said more efforts should be made to speed up the promotion of cultural and social reforms.

The communique said that China would continue opening wider to the outside world and accelerate the "going global" strategy.
