Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping urged local officials to improve capabilities to solve problems for the public through the second round study of the Scientific Outlook on Development.
Xi, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, made the remarks Wednesday during inspection tours in villages in suburban Beijing.
Xi inspected two towns in the Fangshan District. He made positive comments on the local governments' use of the Internet for training Party members and their efforts to improve local people's living standards.
He stressed the importance of the building of grassroots leadership and encouraged selection of outstanding people from various fields to the posts of grassroots officials, especially attracting college graduates to work in rural areas.
He said that Party members and officials should broaden their vision, keep up with the times, and promote benign and fast economic and social development.
Xi also urged officials to improve their knowledge on Party theories and abide by disciplines.Source: Xinhuahttp://paper.people.com.cn/rmrb/html/2009-03/27/content_220555.htm
