Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the call when meeting with newly elected leaders of the Buddhist Association of China.

He urged the association to unite and lead Chinese Buddhists to safeguard China's ethnic unity, social stability and national unification, and work hard to contribute to the all-round construction of a well-off society.

Efforts should be made to cultivate more Buddhist talents and improve Buddhist education, said Jia, also member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee.
