A senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has urged Shanghai to serve as a pioneer and good example in strengthening and innovating social management.

Party committees and government bodies should promote social development in a healthy and orderly way and play an active role in social services, said Zhou Yongkang, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, during an inspection tour in Shanghai on Monday and Tuesday.

At a neighborhood committee with staff including three foreigners who represent the community's international residents, Zhou encouraged them to "constantly improve self-management, self-education and self-service" in order to build the community into a diverse "family."

Zhou, also secretary of the CPC Central Committee's Commission for Political and Legal Affairs, praised the local government's efforts in improving the work in the process of house rebuilding as local people's rights and interests are ensured.

"Any difficulty will be solved as long as we put public interests in our heart, respect public opinion and safeguard public interests," he said.

Zhou also called for better management of the migrant population to bolster their social security and help them better adapt to local life.
