Speaking at a ceremony marking the 90th anniversary of the CYLC's founding, Hu said the country's young people have made great achievements over the course of three major periods, including China's revolutionary years, period of socialist construction period and era of opening-up and reform.
From generation to generation, young people have grown up and become the most energetic and active force in society, said Hu, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

The Party attaches great importance to young people, Hu said, adding that it views China's youth as the hope and future of the nation and the country, as well as an impetus for the work of the Party and the people.
