Xi, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the call at the closing ceremony of a seminar for provincial and ministerial level officials, which began on Feb. 3.

"As the international environment is experiencing major changes and the country's economic development is showing a series of new characteristics, we must... adapt ourselves to changes and accelerate the transformation of the economic development mode," said Xi, adding that the country should sharpen the competitive edge of its economy amid fierce international competition and meet people's expectations for a better life.

He said that in the drive, Party committees must exert full efforts in guidance while Party organizations at lower levels should strengthen their role in implementation with Party members setting examples for others.
