BEIJING - The Communist Party of China (CPC) on Monday held a briefing for foreign diplomats in Beijing on President Hu Jintao's speech on the CPC's 90th founding anniversary.

The International Department of the CPC Central Committee invited two experts to explain the background, connotations and innovative approaches of Hu's speech.

The two experts were Chen Jin, deputy director of the Party Literature Research Office of the CPC Central Committee, and Jiang Jinquan, director-general of Party-building Bureau of the Policy Research Center of the CPC Central Committee. '   Foreign diplomats raised questions regarding future development of the CPC and the country, inner-party elections and the selection of party members.

"Hu gave us guidelines of how the CPC would move on in his keynote speech, and laid out policy and strategy of the CPC in the next period," said Nenad Glisic, minister-counsellor of the Serbian embassy in Beijing.

He said the speech offered first-hand information for foreign diplomats in China to understand the country's approaches, focuses and plans for future development, such as the scientific concept of development, the fight against corruption, care for people's livelihoods and China's views on international affairs.

Malta ambassador to China Joseph Cassar said Hu's speech was frank as it did not evade the challenges and difficulties -- both past and future.

"In the concluding part of the speech, he explained China's problems such as corruption, unemployment and other social issues, " he added.

Narayan Dev Pant, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Nepalese embassy in Beijing, said Hu's speech was forward-looking, which provided a glimpse for foreign envoys on how the CPC developed over the past 90 years, and what the CPC and China plan to do in the days to come.

The CPC held its first briefing in Beijing last September after the Fourth Plenary Session of the 17th CPC Central Committee.

Over 150 foreign diplomats attended the briefing, according to the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
