China vows to construct socialist cultural power


09:56, October 19, 2011

BEIJING, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- The 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) concluded its sixth plenary session in Beijing Tuesday, adopting a guideline to improve the nation's cultural soft power and advocate Chinese culture.

It was the first time for the CPC's decision-makers to focus on cultural issues in the Party's plenary session over the past 15 years.

After China's eye-catching economic achievements in the past three decades, the session is regarded by observers as a strong signal and will for the country to score higher in cultural field.

"What Chinese people should do after their economic boom is a question we must answer," said Wan Junren, professor of philosophy department with Tsinghua University.

China has surpassed Japan to become the world's second largest economy. Even during the international financial crisis, the Chinese economy kept steady and fast growth.

According to a report released by National Bureau of Statistics on Tuesday, China's GDP expanded 9.1 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of the year, despite a downturn of the world economy.

However, facing a series of outstanding economic statistics, the CPC's decision-making body still has kept a strong sense of anxiety and consciousness of hardship about lagging behind.
