The China Social Development Forum, co-sponsored by the Party School of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and Harvard University, concluded in Beijing Saturday.

The forum was the first ever collaboration between the Party School and Harvard, which focused on the hot topics of China's social development.

More than 100 representatives from the two sides attended the two-day forum and discussed social development problems such as health, education and housing, which the CPC views as the core content of building a harmonious socialist society.

Vice President of the Party School Li Junru said that "at the forum, many valuable suggestions have been put forward for China's reform of administrative, legal and health care systems as well as for China's building of a harmonious society."

"We hope these valuable suggestions can provide reference for Chinese government's decision making," he said.

To date, the school has established academic relations with more than 30 countries and regions across the world and hosted more than 30 bilateral and multilateral seminars on fields including politics, economy, law, history and culture.
