A senior leader of the Communist Party of China on Friday hailed the progress of reconstruction work in southwestern Sichuan, a province devastated by a major earthquake in 2008.

"The achievements we have made in relief and reconstruction after the earthquake... have demonstrated the great advantages of our socialistic system, displayed the vehement cohesiveness of the Chinese nation," said Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Li made the remarks at an opening ceremony of an exhibition in Beijing on post-quake reconstruction in Sichuan ahead of the third anniversary of the 8.0-magnitude Wenchuan earthquake that occurred on May 12, 2008.

Li stressed that the reconstruction efforts have also reflected the strong abilities and people-oriented governance of the Communist Party of China.

He said the "precious spiritual wealth formed in quake relief and reconstruction" should be promoted to encourage officials and ordinary people to contribute to the country's development in the next five years.

The exhibition showcases the province's dramatic post-reconstruction changes with photos, diagrams, sand tables and objects.

The May 12 earthquake three years ago left about 87,000 people dead or missing.

A total of 27,564 post-quake reconstruction projects, of 29,692 total planned projects, have been completed, and 91 percent of the total budget of 865.8 billion yuan has been spent, said Wei Hong, vice governor of Sichuan, last month.
