BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao on Friday highlighted the importance of both development and stability, while hailing the achievements the Communist Party of China (CPC) has made over the past 90 years.
"To strike a balance between reform, development, and stability and achieve unity of the three is an important guideline for achieving overall success in China's socialist modernization," Hu Jintao, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said at a grand gathering marking the 90th founding anniversary of the CPC.
When summarizing the achievements the CPC has scored, Hu said the Communist Party of China (CPC) has accomplished three major events in the 90 years that reshaped the future and destiny of the Chinese people.
The first is the new-democratic revolution winning national independence and liberation of the people, Hu said.
The second is the socialist revolution and establishment of the basic socialist system. The third is the great new revolution of reform and opening up and the creation and development of socialism with Chinese characteristics, he said.
However, Hu noted that the CPC must not and will never rest on its laurels.
He pointed out the long-term, complicated and severe tests that the Party is facing. He said the Party should enhance Party building, continue to reform and maintain stability of the country.
