BEIJING, March 13 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin on Tuesday called on members of the country's political advisory body to make greater efforts to help build a well-off society in all respects and accelerate the socialist modernization drive.

Jia, chairman of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the remark at the closing session of the 11th National Committee of the CPPCC in Beijing.

Jia called on all CPPCC National Committee members to rally around the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee during their final term of office and make contributions to the state and the people.

"Let us struggle side by side to achieve new success in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and accelerating socialist modernization," Jia said.

Top CPC and state leaders Hu Jintao, Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Li Changchun, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang were present at the meeting.

The meeting approved a political resolution of the Fifth Session of the 11th CPPCC National Committee.

According to the resolution, great achievements have been made in pushing forward reform and opening-up and advancing socialist modernization under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee over the past year.

The 11th National Committee of the CPPCC and its Standing Committee also made important contributions in mapping out and implementing the 12th Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development, it said.

This year will be of great importance for the implementation of the Five-Year Plan and the CPC's 18th National Congress is also scheduled for later this year, the resolution said.

The CPPCC will faithfully fulfill its duties of political consultation, democratic supervision and participation in the discussion and management of state affairs, and better play its role of coordinating relations, pooling strength and giving suggestions, the resolution said.

For the better running of the economy this year, CPPCC members need to carry out deep research and actively offer their advice for the CPC and the government to scientifically make decisions and implement policies.
