"The publication and issue of the Selected Works of
Jiang Zemin is a major event in the political life of the party and state," said
Hu, who is also Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military
Commission, at a meeting on studying the works.
Other Chinese top leaders Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Jia
Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Huang Ju, Wu Guanzheng, Li Changchun and Luo Gan also
attended the meeting.
Hu ordered all localities and departments to
"concretely" implement the CPC Central Committee decision to study the works,
noting studying the Selected Works of Jiang Zemin is an important task of the
party's ideological and political work and the theoretical study and training of
party members and cadres at present and in the coming period.
Studying the Selected Works of Jiang Zemin "should be
included in the training program for party members and cadres above the county
head level," said Hu.
The Selected Works of Jiang Zemin, compiled by the
Party Literature Editing Committee, has been published and issued across the
country. They consist of Jiang's major works from the late 1980s through the
early period of the 21st century.
Hu called the works "the best textbook" for studying
the important thoughts of the "Three Represents" in an in-depth way, and for
further pushing forward "the great cause of socialism with Chinese
characteristics" and the party building.
As the core of the CPC third-generation leadership,
Jiang initiated the thoughts that the CPC must always represent the development
requirements of China's advanced social productive forces, the progressive
course of China's advanced culture, and the fundamental interests of the
overwhelming majority of the Chinese people, known as the "Three Represents".
Hu said the important thoughts of "Three Represents",
which reflect the common aspiration of the Chinese people and the spirit of
development of today's world and China, are guiding principles to be observed in
a long term.
A meeting of the Communist Party of
China (CPC) Central Committee on studying Selected Works of former party
chief Jiang Zemin is held in Beijing, capital of China on Aug.15, 2006.
The most salient feature and most outstanding
contribution of the important thoughts of "Three Represents", said Hu, is that
they further answer the questions of what is socialism and how to build
socialism and questions concerning party-building as well as providing insights
into the laws of building socialism with Chinese characteristics and
strengthening party-building in new times.
Hu noted thoughts contained in the "Three
Represents", including working for the fundamental interests of the absolute
majority of the people, making development the primary task of the party in
governing the country, adhering to and improving the basic economic system with
public ownership playing a dominant role and diverse forms of ownership
developing side by side and building socialist political civilization and
developing socialist democracy.
He said the selected works vividly record the
historical process of China's development under the CPC third-generation
leadership with Jiang Zemin at the core.
Hu said it was a period when China experienced marked
growth in the comprehensive national strength, the people's rising living
standards, the return of Hong Kong and Macao, the long-term social stability and
unity and the rising international influence.
Reviewing this period of history is of great
significance to strengthening people's determination and trust in pursuing the
socialist road with Chinese characteristics, he said.
Hu said the works summarize the valuable experiences
of the party in pushing forward building socialism with Chinese characteristics.
They also reflect new major theoretical achievements
the party has made through combining the basic principles of Marxism with
contemporary practice in China and features of the times.
"We will continue to guide Party members and people
to learn the Deng Xiaoping Theory and Jiang's important thought of 'Three
Represents', continue to take development as the primary task for the Party and
government, continue to vigorously develop the advanced socialist culture and
unswervingly build a harmonious socialist society," Hu said.
China's development is for the people and by the
people, Hu said, adding that all Party members should stick to the principles of
governance for the people and constantly maintain the vanguard characters of the
