China has developed rapidly in the past 30 plus years thanks to reform and opening up, and the country must promote its future development by continuing to carry out reform and opening up, President Hu Jintao said Friday.

Being a great new revolution carried out by the people under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in the new historical stage, reform and opening up are a critical choice that holds China's future, Hu, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, said at a grand gathering marking the 90th anniversary of the CPC in Beijing.

"They are what we must pursue in upholding and building socialism with Chinese characteristics and achieving the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation," Hu said.

Noting that China suffers from a serious lack of balance, coordination, and sustainability in its development and there are institutional obstacles to scientific development, Hu said these problems must be resolved in the course of deepening reform.

"We should identify areas where breakthroughs can be made, set priorities in deepening reform and opening up, advance reform in important areas and key links when opportunities are ripe and continue to reform the economic, political, cultural and social systems in an innovative way," he said.
