Chinese top political advisor Jia Qinglin Tuesday urged more efforts to perfect the system of multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China(CPC).

Speaking at a seminar to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), CPPCC Chairman Jia said the system is an inevitable choice for China to press ahead with its social and political development.

Efforts should be made to give full play to the unique advantages of the CPPCC, the top political advisory body, he said.

The system is in conformity with China's national conditions and has strong Chinese characteristics, according to Jia.

The system has made important contributions to the country's modernization drive, he said, adding it also played an irreplaceable role in the country's revolutionary cause, reform and opening-up endeavor and the construction of a well-off society.

Jia also urged efforts to embrace innovation in the development of the system.

The CPPCC was founded in 1949, the year that the People's Republic of China was founded.
