BEIJING -- Hu Jintao's report delivered to the 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Monday morning is in line with the development of the times and the interests of the people, and conducive to advancing the Party's cause of building socialism with Chinese characteristics, senior Chinese leaders said Monday afternoon during panel discussions with Party delegates.
Hu's report is far-sighted, resourceful, practical and has addressed all the crucial issues faced by the Party at the current critical stage of reform and development, said Wu Bangguo, who joined a discussion with delegates of China's eastern province of Anhui.
"The 16th CPC Central Committee headed by Hu Jintao has led the nation to break new ground in the cause of building socialism with Chinese characteristics and in adapting Marxism with Chinese conditions," Wu said.
He said building Chinese socialism is the fundamental reason for China's achievements in the past 29 years of reform and opening-up and will lead to more victories in the country's building of a moderately prosperous society.
In his report, Hu cited the miraculous growth of China's economy from "once on the verge of collapse" to the fourth largest in the world. "The Chinese people, once inadequately fed and clad,are leading a fairly comfortable life on the whole."
The Scientific Outlook on Development, Wu said, is a continuation and development of the collective wisdom of the previous three generations of CPC leadership. "It is an important guiding principle we must stick to in China's social and economic development," he said.
During a discussion with delegates from eastern Jiangxi Province, Zeng Qinghong said the Party is "promising" and its cause enjoys a rosy prospect.
The Party should remain united under the leadership generated at the 17th CPC congress, check corruption, improve Party building,and keep pace with the times to score greater achievements, Zeng said, adding the new leaders should inherit and carry forward the good tradition and style of the Party.
