BEIJING, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese leader Zhou Yongkang has reiterated that more efforts should be made to promote social management in line with the socialist market-oriented economic system.
Zhou, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remark on Friday at a seminar on social management innovation attended by leaders from nine northern provinces and autonomous regions including Shandong, Shanxi and Inner Mongolia.
While Zhou praised the efforts of local authorities to enhance social management, he said the current social management mechanism is not keeping pace with social and economic development, a failure particularly damaging to the market-oriented economy.
He urged delegates to innovate in social management by taking overall consideration and conducting systematic study of China's economic development, improving the well-being of the people and social stability.
He also reiterated the importance of improving social management by promoting practices nationwide derived from good community-level experience, adding that the community-level organs are make-or-break.
The job of improving social management should go deep in community-level organs, with increasing allocation of manpower and material resources, said Zhou.
