Hu Jintao Elected New Party Chief
Hu Jintao, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, introduced his colleagues in the newly elected Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the 16th CPC Central Committee.

They are Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Jia Qinglin, Zeng Qinghong, Huang Ju, Wu Guanzheng, Li Changchun, and Luo Gan.

Hu made the introduction Friday morning in the Great Hall of the People when meeting with Chinese and overseas reporters covering the 16th CPC National Congress, which ended Thursday.

The newly-elected general secretary said that the just-concluded 16th CPC National Congress was a "great success".

"This is a united, triumphant and highly progressive meeting, as well as a meeting which has carried on the past and opened a new chapter for the future," said Hu at a meeting with foreign and Chinese journalists covering the Party Congress.

Hu Jintao said that the new CPC leadership will unswervingly implement the important thought of Three Represents.

He said that the congress has established "Three Represents" as the Party's long-term guiding ideology, on a par with Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory.

"That's a historical policy decision and a historical contribution," he said.

Hu Jintao said that the new CPC central leadership will firmly carry out the development objectives outlined in Jiang Zemin's report to the 16th CPC National Congress.

"These objectives reflect the will of the entire Party and represent the aspiration of people of all ethnic groups in China,"he said. "They are the political declaration and action guide for our Party in the new development stage of the new century."

Hu pledged to continue China's reform, opening-up drive and modernization cause.

Hu said that guided and inspired by the spirit of the 16th CPC National Congress, the Communist Party of China would further show the rest of the world its sound image of keeping pace with the times and the pioneering spirit.

He said that the whole Party and people from all ethnic groups would unite more closely and concentrate on construction and development so as to continue pushing forward China's reform, opening-up, and modernization drive.

China would certainly have a more splendid future, Hu said, adding that China's further development would contribute more to world peace and development.
