BEIJING, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Tuesday's edition of Qiushi (Seeking Truth), the flagship magazine of the Communist Party of China (CPC), will include an article calling for further implementation of the country's reform and opening-up policy.
Titled "Sparing no effort to push forward reform and opening up," the article quotes CPC Central Committee General Secretary Hu Jintao's speech July 23, saying Hu underscored the significance of the policy on building socialism with Chinese characteristics.
Initiated mainly by late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, the reform and opening-up policy has been carried out since the late 1970s. It has driven China's rapid economic growth and overall development over three decades.
With the byline of Qiu Shi, the article says the reform has opened a new realm for the cinicization of Marxism and pushed the Party and the people to emancipate thoughts, seek truth from facts and advance with the times. It has also become the dynamic for development.
It adds that the policy has sparked a historical change in relations between China and the rest of the world, promoting the country's socialist modernization drive to adapt to the global development trend.
"The reform and opening-up policy is in line with the common aspiration of both the Party and the people, and also conform to the historical trend," according to the article.
"Its direction and path are absolutely correct, and its effectiveness and contributions cannot be denied. Any standstill or regression will find no way out."
The article arrives ahead of the CPC's 18th National Congress, scheduled to be started on Nov. 8. A new CPC leadership will be elected at the conference.
The article underlines the critical period of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and the crucial stage of deepening opening up and reform and transforming the economic development pattern. Problems and conflicts incurred during such a period can only be resolved through deepening scientific development.
It then calls for adhering to the guidelines, principles and polices set since the Third Plenary Session of the 11th CPC Central Committee in 1978, enshrining reform and innovative spirit into every step of state governing and pushing forward the reform and opening-up drive more consciously and steadfastly.
