More than 30,000 local people and senior officials of central authorities gathered Thursday in Nanning, capital of southwest China's Guangxi Autonomous Region, to celebrate the region's 50th anniversary of founding.

Zhou Yongkang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of CPC Central Committee, gave a speech, which was followed by a singing and dancing show.

Zhou arrived in the regional capital on Wednesday, leading a delegation from the central government to join in the celebration.

In the speech, Zhou said the founding of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region was another successful practice of China's minority autonomous system and the great progress the region achieved in the past half century proved that socialism must be relied on to make prosperity for all nationalities, Zhou said.

The central government hoped that the region's people and officials could strive for bigger development and progress in the future, he added.

Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang, who is also deputy head of the central government delegation, read out at the rally congratulatory messages from the CPC Central Committee, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the State Council, the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the Central Military Commission.

The region, gateway to southeast Asia, was founded on Dec. 11, 1958. As one of China's five minority autonomous regions, it has 12 ethnic groups, including the dominant Zhuang nationality.
