Senior Chinese leader Zhou Yongkang has called for more efforts in enhancing social administration to ensure a vibrant, harmonious and stable society.

Zhou, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks in a signed article to be published in the upcoming issue of Qiushi, or "Seeking Truth", the biweekly official journal of the CPC Central Committee.

Zhou's article clarified the necessity for systematical and institutional innovations in performing social administrations.

He also stressed that the country needs to improve the structure of social administration comprising Party committee leadership, government responsibility, nongovernmental support and public participation.

A sound social administration system that suits China's economic, social, political and cultural developments would contribute to ensure vitality, harmony and stableness of the society, he added.

"Social administration" has become a hot word in China after President Hu Jintao delivered a key speech on this subject at a high-profile seminar for senior officials in February.
