BEIJING, March 4 (Xinhua) -- President Hu Jintao said Sunday that China must further ensure and improve people's well-being, promote the reform of the medical and health care system, and speed up the building of a full-coverage social security system.

Hu made the remarks while participating in a panel discussion with political advisors from the health sector and social welfare and security sectors at the ongoing annual full session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, the country's top political advisory body.

China needs to put ensuring and improving people's well-being in a more outstanding position, said the president.

On one hand, the government should play a leading role in solving the most pressing problems that are directly connected to the people, on the other hand, the whole society should be guided to carry forward the tradition of aiding the disadvantaged so as to make contributions to a better life, Hu said.

During the discussion, Hu also stressed that China should deepen the reform of the medical and health care system.
