BEIJING - President Xi Jinping has urged authorities to improve the united front work and pool strength for the realization of the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.

Xi made the remarks at a three-day meeting of the united front work, which closed on Wednesday in Beijing.

Long-term unity has greatly contributed to China's economic development, social stability and national unification, according to Xi.

It is fundamental to stick to the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in order to better deal with the united front work under new circumstances, Xi said.

He urged authorities to support the healthy development of the private economy and unite to help people working in the sector.

He also urged dealing well with affairs related to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao and overseas Chinese.

Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), attended the meeting.

Yu told authorities to deal with uniformity and diversity, consolidating the mainstream while tolerating and encouraging dissent and different understandings.

Multiparty cooperation

Xi said the multiparty cooperation and political consultation system led by the CPC is mainly demonstrated by the CPPCC, China's top political advisory body.

The system should be improved to ensure that people from democratic parties or without party affiliation can fully participate in political affairs and conduct supervision.

There should be more political discussion and consultation under the system to consensus and optimize decision-making, the president said.

He also asked authorities to support the internal improvement of the democratic parties and enhance their abilities in leadership, participation in politics and cooperation with the CPC.
