Reform and opening up is an effective instrument for the Party and the people to make great strides in keeping up with the times in pursuing their cause, according to the meeting. The current and future periods are critical for building a strong country and realizing national rejuvenation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization. China's reform must continue in the face of complex international and domestic situations, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial changes, and the new anticipation of the people, according to the meeting. Deepening reform is a natural requirement for upholding and improving the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and modernizing China's governance system and capacity, according to the meeting. It is also a natural requirement for implementing the new development philosophy and better adapting to the evolution of the principal contradiction facing Chinese society, and for adhering to the people-centered approach to ensure that all the people share the benefits of modernization more fully and fairly. It is a natural requirement for coping with major risks and challenges and achieving steady progress in pursuing the Party and the country's cause, for promoting the building of a community with a shared future for mankind and winning the strategic initiative in the increasingly fierce international competition.

The whole Party must put reform in a more prominent position and deepen reform in all respects with a focus on promoting Chinese modernization, according to the meeting.

Efforts were noted at the meeting to take into consideration both the domestic and international situations, coordinate the promotion of the Five-Sphere Integrated Plan and the advancement of the Four-Pronged Comprehensive Strategy. Further comprehensive reform should be led by reform of the economic system, with advancing social equality and justice and improving people's wellbeing as both the starting point and the ultimate goal of China's socialist cause. More attention should be paid to system integration, addressing priorities and achieving concrete outcomes, so as to promote better alignment between production relations and productive forces, superstructure and economic foundation, as well as China's governance system and social development. This will help provide powerful driving force and institutional guarantees for Chinese modernization, according to the meeting.
