The key to successfully handling affairs in China lies in the Communist Party of China and the Party will concentrate on improving its governing capability, combating corruption and guarding against risks, top Party leader Hu Jintao said here Sunday.
This is meant to enhance the Party's creativeness, cohesive forces and fighting power so that the Party always maintains its position as the firm leading nucleus in building socialism with Chinese characteristics, said Hu, general secretary of the Party Central Committee.
At a grand gathering to mark the birth centenary of late leader Deng Xiaoping, Hu called on Party officials to pay close attention to the fundamental interests of the people and exercise their power for the benefit of the people.
The Party Central Committee will make unremitting efforts to promote Party building, establish and improve an anti-graft system that fits the socialist market economic system and lays equal emphasis on education, supervision and punishment.
"We will unswervingly push forward the fight against corruption," he said.
